Mormonism: Joseph Smith 33rd Degree Freemason (1830)
Theosophical Society: Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 32nd Degree Freemason (1875)
Theosophical Society: Henry Steel Olcrott 33rd Degree Freemason (1875)
Jehovah's Witnesses: Charles Taze Russell 33rd Degree Freemason (1879)
OAHSPE The New Bible: John Ballou Newbrough 33rd Degree Freemason (1882)
Sunken Continent of Mu: James Churchward 33rd Degree Freemason (1926)

Interesting to note, each one of these "religions" denies the divinity of Christ.

Greetings,

Free masons have only 3 degrees. You have to join Scottish Rite to get add'l degrees.

Helena could not be a Free Mason, she was a women.

It's common knowledge that the man called Jesus was a teacher not some divine puppet. Only religious cults claim that in order to control you.

You completely missed the York Rite degrees, including Cryptic Masonry, Royal Arch Masons, Knights Templar.

I would like you to defend even the first and second lines of your resolution: IE Mormonism and Theosophy.

To wit:

Prove Joseph Smith was a Freemason. Provide evidence that Mormonism qualifies as a 'new age' religion. Provide even the tiniest shred of evidence that Mormons don't recognize the Divinity of Christ.

EDIT: It would be more clear to refer to Mormonism by it's actual name: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

While you do that, I will offer a counter point and defend my position in a second post.


Theosophy - not a religion, a philosophy; Blavatsky - not a Freemason, since the Landmarks say no woman can be made a mason; that Theosophy denies the Divinity of Christ.

Conversely even if every point of your thesis can be proven, how many non-masons and anti-masons have created 'new age' religions that deny the Divinity of Christ?

Mormonism:

Divinity: Literally the word means "godlike".

Jesus:

From the mormon.org website under Beliefs:




In short, Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very literally our Savior and Redeemer. In the future Jesus Christ will return to reign on earth in peace for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He will be our Lord forever.

Putting up with your disinformation campaigns is exhausting.

Personally I'm fed up with it.
Who's to say we are incapable of fighting back?

A revolution is coming.
Bring out the guillotines.

How is quoting the exact beliefs of one organization you tried to indict spreading disinformation?

I certainly would not qualify my reactions to your numerous threads a campaign of any sort. I don't even suggest your views are necessarily wrong or false, but that you support them with facts.

"Fighting back" would suggest that you are being attacked. I don't recall any Freemason ever posting a thread accusing you or your church of being murderers, false prophets, non-Christian or any other defamatory connotation.

Sometimes even my own brothers are not entirely comfortable with my style of (my term) "Apologetic Freemasonry". However, I think any honest discussion about the fraternity needs an element of self-defense.

By my estimation you've accused my brethren of more than 300,000 murders in the last week alone without any evidence or support.

In the end, though, it's not about you and I. We are but two members of the family of mankind, under the Fatherhood of God. Neither of us can speak except for ourselves.

In the end though, I love you, and I love every other member of mankind. I don't have the answer, but I certainly have never needed to use disinformation to get my point across.

Females cant be masons because we all know what would happen if you let them in.

Masons know that males are better than females and that god loves them more. Its obvious!

Greetings,

You are definitely not a candidate for Free Masonry.

Why is it that the people who think they know every thing about something they know nothing about, rise up and make the biggest ass of themselves.

Me thinks you are a hater, not a lover.

That's right -- censor my posts and "punish" me with a loss of 1000 imaginary points.
I could care less.

The time is coming when the regular people of this world -- the bus-drivers, construction workers, school teachers, office workers, nurses, waiters, auto-mechanics, butchers, firefighters, soldiers and small business owners -- will rise up against you secret-handshake, money/devil worshipping, control freaks to turn your sacred pyramid upside-down.

Actually, most of the working class people, like me, are to busy working and struggling to survive and pay rent or mortgages to take it to the man in any serious fashion. I've tried, hard.

But I have a square and compass next to my name, so I must be involved in the cabal you want to destroy.

Masons rushing in to spread disinformation about their Mason brothers AND sisters! Don't lie! Women can be Masons! I've seen it! Freemasonry is hiding more from the people and we need to take them down. They are the epitome of evil!






Whoa...what just happened? I think I just channeled a whole lot of crazy...
But seriously, someone has some deep seated issues that need to be addressed by a professional.

Well now you've crossed a line.

I'll let you bash Freemasonry all day long.

Don't EVER insult my profession though. I am a paramedic, a former firefighter and a small business owner.

YOU DO NOT SPEAK for me.

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

I have no sisters, only brothers. It's a fraternity not a sorority. Please clarify why are the epitome of evil. Last time I checked brotherly love, relief and truth were pretty benevolent tenets to live your life by. Just my opinion though, I must not be one the HIGHER UP Masons people believe run things.
