Bajans are generally noted for welcoming visitors with open arms, but it didn’t work out quite that way last week when Members of the Grand Order of United Scottish Mechanics of the Universe Incorporated assembled in Barbados for their first convention outside Britain.
While the visitors from Guyana and Birmingham were convening with their local counterparts, hundreds of Christians were participating in services in a week-long conference hosted by the House of Freedom that didn’t exactly – to put it mildly – root for the Masonic cause.
Activities included morning workshops at Restoration Ministries in Brittons Hill and nightly sessions at Sanctuary Empowerment Centre in Country Road, Bridgetown. They reached their zenith on Thursday night when hundreds of the faithful denounced Freemasonry and most of its beliefs and trappings.
At Thursday’s service, which was marked by bold renunciations from several pastors and declarations from government via Senator Reverend David Durrant, the congregation of about 700 at Sanctuary Empowerment Centre prayed against the “spirits of fear, death, secret rites and passwords, the love of position and power” and the “mingling of truth with error”.
The event marked the last of a two-night lecture entitled Secrets Of Freemasonry and opened with a lecture by former master Tony Jordan, who left a local Scottish order 25 years ago after surrendering his life to Christ.
Jordan recalled giving his first expose of the lodge in 1991, being abandoned by his family and accused of having been ousted from the lodge in abject disgrace.
“In the lodge I met men of integrity, civic-minded men, law-abiding men, doctors . . . ,” he conceded as he addressed the congregation.
But he pointed out that several Masonic rites parodied the Word of God, particularly the death and resurrection of Christ.
Jordan also explained that most members in Barbados only rose to the position of master and were therefore unaware of the satanic elements of masonic lodges, whose stated tenets were brotherly love, relief and truth.
Only those in the higher echelons of the lodges, from the 31st to 33rd degree, were aware that satanic worship was at the core of their rituals and that Lucifer was worshipped as the Great Architect of the Universe, he added.
The cockroaches hate people who go shining floodlights on their deeds. Prepare to be flamed.
Every now and then I see a post like this that renews my hope in ATS..
very glad to see the truth coming out in the press for a change. S&F
As said before me, expect the cockroaches to annihilate this thread with smokescreens and first hand accounts of the stalwart defenders of moral and just action donating to charity and applying soothing lotions and aloe gels to thousands of burned children around the country.
Gee, no response and your post has been up only an hour? On a Saturday night? When some people have better things to do than hang out on ATS?

There's no such thing as "Masonic belief" when it comes to religion. Masonry isn't a religion. It accepts men of all faiths, and its lessons can help those men strengthen their faith and their relationship with their church.

Is there a conflict of interest between Christian beliefs and doctrine and masonic belief and doctrine?
No idols at all. Just God.
I skimmed it enough to see hoaxes and frauds being taken as gospel, so I really don't see much point in pursuing it further. The Taxil hoax and the Pike/Mazzini hoax are dead give aways that it's a waste of time.
