There are two kinds of masons; those who get it, and those who don’t. Don’t mistake those who act like they don’t for those who don’t, though;
many of those who argue for the goodness of masonry know very well what it truly is. That’s not to say that there aren’t those who don’t know
what masonry really is who argue that it’s good, too. They’re simply repeating what they’ve been told.
The thing many non-masons don’t understand is that it’s not really about how “high” a mason is in degree. Degrees were useful once as an
indicator of a mason’s status, but now any mason can achieve the 32nd degree simply by paying the proper fee to the Scottish Rite and going through
the motions. It’s about what’s revealed to a mason about the true nature of masonry, and that comes through living a masonic life.
Part of that is the stuff that one learns through the degrees, sure, but most of the stuff one learns through the degrees is presented in a way that
its real meaning isn’t apparent until long after one has passed that degree. Every mason knows, if they’ve read Pike and Hall, that masonry is
secretive not only in that information is kept hidden and only revealed incrementally, but also in that those of the lower degrees are lied to about
the meaning of the things they see, hear, and experience in the degrees.
The more useful way to know whether a mason gets it is to look at his life. You won’t be able to tell with most masons about their life, though,
because they’re not going to broadcast it. Here, though, is where the levels of masons really show. A mason can go his whole life without getting
much more out of masonry than a discount at his friend’s hardware store. But a mason can also get away with having sex with hundreds of 16 year old
girls. It’s about influence and power, and you don’t just automatically get that by becoming a mason, you get that by getting in the favour of
those who have power, by giving favours yourself.
Masonry is simply a step-by-step program of becoming evil. Many masons know nothing of this, because they don’t allow themselves to know anything.
It’s as simple as this: an opportunity is opened up for you to do something bad and get away with it. No mason tells you to do it. No mason even
acknowledges that there’s an opportunity for you. But the opportunity’s still there. Take it, and you’ll find that you get away with it (it was
opened up for you). Once you start, you probably won’t stop. It’s the same as any path to destruction, only you have more people watching out for
So, back to what I said about there being two kinds of masons. There are those who get it and those who don’t. Those who get it know that they get
more and more “good stuff” the more they help their fellow masons (because, hey, you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours). That’s the same as
any other fraternity, close-knit community, family, whatever, you say? Yeah, kinda. A good Christian knows Satan is everywhere. He knows we’re
tempted to do bad for our own benefit all the time. But there is one difference between masonry and most other groups. Masonry does, in the end,
actually recognize a different god from the God of the bible, and worship that god.
But does it really matter? In the end, no. Masons become evil by steps. And they do it under the guise of bettering themselves. Many believe they’re
not doing evil their whole lives. But that doesn’t mean they’re not doing evil. Eventually, many masons, however, do realize what they’re doing.
Once one realizes this, one understands that basic fact that all true Christians also know: Satan rules this earth. Masons with this knowledge,
however, choose to continue to worship Satan, not God. What choice do they have? They’re enjoying the good life. If they left masonry, they’d lose
everything. Most of their friends are masons by this point and their livelihood is based on connections with masons. Other masons know so much about
their wrongdoing that they could be destroyed in an instant if they left. But more importantly, why would they want to leave? They’re already evil
by this point. What’s it to a mason who does evil things to recognize that they worship Satan? Nothing. You already worship Satan through your
actions every day. So they find out that the God they’ve been praying to all the years in lodge is Satan. Who cares? Call him Lucifer if you want.
Or Jah-bul-on. Or, simply, the Most High. You know, All Glory, and all that.
