There is no power greater than unconditional love my friend. It conquers all. That is what Jesus was explaining.
Not if you look at it in context. He said this while explaining to an accusing crowd why he was using the demon Beelzebub to cast other demons out of
people. The whole "divide and conquer" thing.
The original knowledge of the Freemasons included the expert use of sorcery. The "Masons" of today only picked up some of the symbolism, but lost
essentially all the actual esoteric knowledge of the Freemasons. Jesus himself probably learned his skills when he was studying in Egypt. A huge
amount of the New Testament is devoted to Jesus and his Apostles traveling around, using sorcery to heal people and fund their cult, although it's
not fashionable these days to focus on that.
Your way out there when you say Jesus used sorcery, you have no understanding of who and what Jesus is and did and still does to this very day.
Luke 11:14-20 (Amplified Bible)
14Now Jesus was driving out a demon that was dumb; and it occurred that when the demon had gone out, the dumb man spoke. And the crowds marveled.
15But some of them said, He drives out demons [because He is in league with and] by Beelzebub, the prince of demons,
16While others, to try and test and tempt Him, demanded a sign of Him from heaven.
17But He, [well] aware of their intent and purpose, said to them, Every kingdom split up against itself is doomed and brought to desolation, and
so house falls upon house. [The disunited household will collapse.]
18And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom last? For you say that I expel demons with the help of and by Beelzebub.
19Now if I expel demons with the help of and by Beelzebub, with whose help and by whom do your sons drive them out? Therefore they shall be your
20But if I drive out the demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has [already] come upon you.
Here is what Jesus was doing, it was by the hand of God that He did these things.
And as for the Freemason's there is a lower and higher hierarchy, the lower not knowing what the higher one does, until you reach the higher degree
you are only at a need to know level.
The highest degree still holds there full knowledge.
