Woops, took longer preparing that post thna I intended.
Now my own take, wow rather tricky but here it gos, some masons on here beleave that Jesus and Lucifer are one and the same and that satan is a
different entity and while i disagree with that, the masons saying that in some way beleave in Jesus we just have different takes on the mater.
I have never heard a Mason say that.
I have, however, heard, and read myself, how the same phrase was translated to Lucifer in the King James Version, but left untranslated when it was
referred to Christ.
The phrase in the Old Testament refers to the King of Tyre, a holly mortal person, and his fall from grace.
Jesus referred to himself as the Morning Star, a phrase that is left untranslated in other versions of the Bible.
is a good source for comparing different parts of the Bible in it's various translations.
Now do i think every mason is a satanist no but i would beleave that more if they didn't hold Pike in such a high regard, i mean we already proved he
was a racist, it's Pike that has such high regard for Lucifer the light bearer and that's a turn off for me and it's also why you all get deemed
satanists, the masons that don't beleave in Pike are the ones who don't fall for the trap.
God's truth, unless they are active in conspiracy forums, most Masons know little about Pike.
His racism is a issue that cannot be fully placed to rest. While he was most definitely racist by our standard, at the time, he'd have been regarded
as open minded in his approach. He personally presented the Prince Hall Lodge with a copy of the Rituals he compiled for the Scottish Rite.
Pike had no regard for Lucifer as a light bearer, rather, he questioned the use of the name for a being of darkness.
There's a marked difference.
However, he did not doubt that Lucifer or Satan, whichever you would call it, is the light which enfeebles, and not the light which strengthens.
Remember, Lucifer (who you equate to Satan) translates to shining, some would say it means light bearer.
Jesus is the Light of the world, the light that strengthen, heals, and overcomes.
Pike says "Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish
Souls? Doubt it not!", that looks bad anyway you wanna break it down, that's all i'm saying, and thats because of the splendor comment and that
he's the one who bares the light and not Jesus.
Well, until you can come up with Chapter, page, and dissemble the full paragraph, your opinion is pretty worthless, eh?
