Knucklehead huh? I see you're in NJ.. hang out at the Jersey Shores much? Huh bish?
I have M & D and have read it cover to cover once (10 years ago) and have read sections of it multiple times more recently. Have you ever thought for
one second that maybe people will interpret his words in different ways?
Did I ever say Pike WORSHIPPED Lucifer? No I didn't.
Here is Morals & Dogma page 324 (I re-typed this page from the book in its entirety)... knucklehead
It is by His uttered Word that God reveals Himself to us; not alone in the visible and invisible but intellectual creation, but also in our
convictions, consiousness, and instincts. Hence it is that certain beliefs are universal. The conviction of all men that God is good led to a belief
in a Devil, the fallen Lucifer or Light-bearer, Shaitan the Adversary, Ahriman and Tuphon, as an attempt to explain the existence of Evil, and make it
consistent with the Infinite Power, Wisdom, and Benevolence of God. Nothing surpasses and nothing equals, as a Summary of all the doctrines of the
Old World, those brief words engraven by HERMES on a Stone, and known under the name of "The Tablet of Emerald:" the Unity of Being and the Unity of
the Harmonies, ascending and descending, the progressive and proportional scale of the Word; the immutable law of the Equilibrium, and the
proportioned progress of the universal analogies/ the relation of the Idea to the Word; giving the measure of the relation between the Creator and the
Created, the necessary mathematics of the Infinite, proved by the measures of a single corner of the Finite;--all this is expressed by this single
proposition of the Great Egyptian Hierophant; "What is Superior is as that which is Inferior, and what is Below is as that which is Above, to form
the Marvels of the Unity."
This is exactly what I am talking about. I shouldn't really need to break this down.. but since you guys are too effin thickheaded to either
understand, or admit what he's saying (and you continue to ARGUE about it).. he is saying that the Creator and Lucifer/Shaitan/Ahriman are ALL ONE
How flippin hard is that to understand?
Do I need to transcribe the other two Lucifer quotes in M & D to prove my point some more??
Also, if you read his writings on the 26º Prince of Mercy, you will find that, while he is talking about how Masons have no place to tell other
people their beliefs are false, he is actually divulging a lot about his true beliefs in how he points out (what he perceives as) the flaws in the
Christian belief that JC was the messiah.
Do I need to transcribe this or will you go read it (obviously you all own M&D or you wouldn't be arguing right?) for yourself and then come back and
tell me I'm lying and falsifying and "taking words out of context"?
Do any of you Mason's know what your "Blazing Star" (the upside down pentagram in your lodge, well unless you're in New York and then it MAY be
right-side up) is meant to signify??
What do you think it is? Can you tell? I will be happy to say it since I'm not under any oath to keep it secret.
Ever heard of the Order of the Silver Star
I had better be clear here... I am NOT saying that the Order of the Silver Star is a masonic organization. It is clearly NOT a masonic organization.
But the significance behind the name of this most highest and most secret Order of Aleister Crowley (one which the name is never written out as such)
absolutely does explain the true meaning of the Blazing Star in the masonic lodge.
And one more thing.. I'm not saying Masonry is "evil"... just that it has no symbiotic or analogous relationship with Christianity, the belief that JC
was the messiah and that Lucifer/Shaitan/Ahriman/Typhon/Loki/Ba'al/Molekh etc... etc... are SEPARATE from YHVH God the father.
Christianity is essentially a dualistic belief system (which I have my doubts about - even as a professed Christ-worshipper) and Masonry attempts to
blend ALL of the world's belief systems about "God" into one system, which is a men's club, who are infatuated with titles, positions, climbing
ladders and acquiring inflential roles in world affairs.
If the "religious" aspects of Masonry are so un-important... and if the "governmental" aspects of Masonry are also so un-important... then WHY do you
guys spend SO MUCH TIME adorning yourselves in worldly regalia and titles? Why do masons constantly write about and brag about Freemasonic presidents
and Politicians? ... and rewarding presidents with Masonic medals, which is, in essence: yet another way of many ways you guys exalt yourselves into
the positions of Gods of this World
