This is not correct. Masonic teaching does indeed promote individuals to find balance, which the principle of the Tao. But this notion does not allow

Instead, the Mason is admonished to subdue the passions.
REMEMBER THAT I SPEAK OF MASONS WHO HAVE ACCOMPLISHED ALL DEGREES AND KNOW ALL MYSTERIES AND SECRETS. THIS STATEMENT IS NOT MADE IN REFERENCE TO
GULLIBLE NEW INITIATES OR LOWER RANKING MASONS. IF YOU ARE A LOWER RANKING MASON THEN CONSIDER THIS AN ADVANCED LESSON.
Consider this an advanced lesson: the number of degrees that a Mason holds has absolutely nothing to do with any esoteric knowledge.
Do Freemasons really believe in Satan? No.
This is incorrect. Many Freemasons do indeed believe in the literal existence of Satan. I, however, do not.
What is Lucifer to a Freemason? Lucifer is the thought that first entered the mind of Cain when thought outside of the box.
"Lucifer" is not a character found within Freemasonry. As for Cain, I don't believe in him either, as he was a character in Hebrew mythology.
Works do not get us into Heaven, for this comes only by His grace.
Faith without works is dead.
Freemasons see religion as nothing but superstitions.
This is untrue, although it is certainly fact that superstitions have crept into religions.
They see the Scriptures as recorded history but when you get into spiritual matters and the truth of God they turn their backs.
I do not see your scriptures as recorded history, since actual academic history often refutes it (the Flood, for example, is not literal history, but
an allegorical myth). This does not mean that the scriptures are without value, it simply means that to interpret them literally is often an erroneous

Again, there is no "Lucifer" in Freemasonry. The modern Christian fundamentalist notion of Lucifer derives from Milton's poem "Paradise Lost",
which of course has nothing to do with Freemasonry.
To a true Worshipful Master Mason of the secret degrees Lucifer is in his own mind and in his own soul.
A "true Worshipful Master" is someone who has been elected by his Lodge to serve a term as its presiding officer. The title has nothing to do with
an individual's religious beliefs.
Is that our first American President George Washington? Yes it is. But I thought that George Washington was a real Christian... why would anyone
depict him as a god surrounded by Pagan gods?
Actually, Washington was a Deist, not a Christian.
Here is a truth that Freemasons cannot see and cannot grasp because pride and arrogance blind them from ever seeing it: Satan is
Pride and arrogance have nothing to do with it. Satan is a myth, based upon the Greek god Pan and Egyptian god Set. Set was the chief deity of Egypt
during the supposed Exodus, so the Hebrews simply made the god of their enemies their own devil.
Jesus Christ and Lucifer are not one in the same and all this garbage they believe is nothing but a deception!
Jesus Christ is referred to as "Lucifer" three times in the New Testament.
America is a Christian nation, right?
No. The United States is a FREE nation, with complete separation of church and state.
The Obama administration has been pushing through unread and dangerous legislation with no care for what the American people have to say about it.
The American people put them there to do exactly what they're doing.
WHEN THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER DO NOT OBEY GOD ALMIGHTY AND PUSH UPON US UNGODLY LAWS AND RAPE OUR LAND THEN WE ARE REQUIRED BY SCRIPTURE TO LISTEN
TO GOD AND NOT MAN!
I hardly think that granting access to health care is an ungodly, or is raping our land.
