Freemasonry: character-building brotherhood, or demonic cult? by Tony Copple
Freemasonry: character-building brotherhood, or demonic cult?
by Tony Copple
If you are not a
mason, you, like myself, may have had only a vague idea about freemasonry.
Yet this is a cult that all should be aware of, in view of its considerable
infiltration into society at all levels and through the centuries. Your
life is probably influenced by masonic doctrines whether or not you are
aware of it. Masons look after their own, capable of believing themselves
above the law.
It is as a
Christian however that my main concerns are voiced on this page.
Freemasonry has proved itself attractive to believers in many religions or
no religion. There are bishops who are masons. It is my belief that there
is no way a serious Christian can reconcile freemasonry with Christianity
unless he has been hoodwinked. Some of today's liberals within the
Christian umbrella are working along a parallel course with masonry; indeed
liberalism in the church could have arisen partly through the influence of
is 98% food, but the 2% kills rats. The majority of 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree
masons are not bad people; they have been deceived. It is almost impossible
for them to understand this (that they are deceived). The design of the
system is deliberate so that they, appearing and believing themselves
innocent will attract others to the lodge.
not permitted to practice Christianity openly in their lodges or promote
the lordship of Jesus. They must give equal weight to all religions in the
overall scheme of things. Masonry is not so much a cult (ie something
masquerading as Christianity but using a modified Bible) as a pagan
religion. What they do practise in the lodge is a series of rather
revolting initiation rites for each level that frankly no rational human
being should be subjected to - yet they do it.
of England has declared freemasonry heretical. Freemasonry has been exposed
by many, and today the Internet offers a platform accessible to all to
state such views. This web page repeats a selection of statements made by
Christians who have come into contact with masonry, particularly Jack
Harris, whose book "Freemasonry: the invisible cult in our
midst", (ISBN 088368-231-1) published in 1983, is an excellent source,
Harris having risen to be "Worshipful Master" of a masonic lodge,
but who finally separated himself from freemasonry when its contradictions
with Christianity became too much for him to bear. Selwyn Stephens' booklet
"Unmasking Freemasonry" is an excellent resource to explain
freemasonry to people considering joining, and to practicing masons (who
may well be ignorant of the unsavory elements of freemasonry).
"Unmasking Freemasonry" is available from Jubilee Resources (see
list of quotes is hardly a detailed exposé, it is my hope that these
statements by Christians, and the additional links below to other
anti-freemasonry sites, may assist any who are currently considering

the misguided yet good and true pillars of society who have become masons,
and believe masonry to be compatible with their Christian beliefs.
shall know them by their fruits"
The fruits of freemasonry include pride; self-righteousness (they tend to
believe themselves to be a cut above the rest of us); idolatry (Gaotu is
not the God of the Bible) and members are required to bow down together
with others who worship other gods; deceit, dishonesty and corruption
(initiates are deliberately not told about the more detailed and satanic
elements of masonry); false concept of God (Jesus and Lucifer seen as two
sides of the same deity); secrecy (they cannot discuss what goes on in the
lodge even with their wives); swearing oaths - one phrase at a time, so
that they are required to swear before being told the full extent of the
oath that they MUST obey; greed/self-advancement (the main reason many of
them join); false assurance of salvation (all masons are offered
immortality); false resurrection (ceremonial "killing" and
"resurrection" of candidates).
Are these characteristics that you would want to foster?

the ancient mysteries religions: the secret worship rites of Pagan Gods.

This last is the most worrying, in that it would appear
that Satan has indeed been at work in his guise as Light-bearer,
marshalling the forces of evil.
Invisible cult in our midst", Jack Harris describes the origins
and beliefs of freemasonry. Here are just a few statements randomly
selected from his book:
humanistic teachings of freemasonry will be a primary catalyst allowing the
Antichrist to come to power during the Tribulation period.
* Freemasonry has penetrated all levels of society including our pulpits
and teaching ministries.
* Freemasonry is one of Satan's master deceptions. Freemasonry builds
temples in the hearts of men and nations. But any attempt to construct a
spiritual temple can only succeed through the power of the Holy Spirit.
*In Galations 1, 6-10, Paul pronounces a divine curse on all who would
preach any other gospel except that which Christ has given him. Two separate
spiritual forces are at work in the world. One is of God; the other is of
Satan. Which one of these two spiritual forces controls freemasonry?
*Many Christians believe they are worshipping God in the lodge room because
of clever manipulations of Bible terminology. Instead they are honoring the
god of freemasonry - the God of naturism, not the Bible God as revealed in
*Masonry most assuredly makes a mockery of God in claiming the Bible as its
guide for faith and practice. Masonry's practices, such as bloodcurdling
oaths and pagan rituals, are anti-Christian. It is a work-oriented cult and
faith has nothing to do with its teachings.
*Freemasonry is Unitarian, not Trinitarian as Christianity is. Christ and
the Holy Spirit are not part of worship by freemasons.
*Masonic funerals require the lodge, rather than any religious group, to
take exclusive control of the funeral and the last rites which are the same
regardless of whether the deceased is Christian, Jew or Hindu. The officers
present wear pagan jewels and aprons, white gloves and a high hat.
The initiation rituals
associated with becoming a freemason are steeped in unsavory tradition with
pagan overtones. The rituals are both symbols of initiation and reminders
of penalties to those who might reveal them and other aspects of masonry.
Freemasonry has never accused of carrying out promises to murder those who
would reveal their secrets, and the evidence of those accusations is
attitudes to sin and crime are colored by whether other masons are involved
in the sin or crime. For example, masons believe that they must not commit
adultery with the wives of certain members of the lodge hierarchy; others
are fair game. They must not steal from masons (but stealing from non-masons
is OK). From this follows a whole raft of practices of discrimination in
the world by masons in high places. Masons you have come into contact with
will never divulge such facts even if they know them.
William Morgan published in 1826 an "Exposition of Masonry."
After his murder, it is estimated that 45,000 masons quit masonic lodges,
leaving probably less than 10,000. More than 2,000 lodges were disbanded.
Two of the murderers eventually made deathbed confessions to drowning him
in the Niagara river, having been selected by ballot from lodge members, as
recorded in Rev. Charles Finney's book "The Character, Claims, and
Practical Workings of Freemasonry, written in 1879.
say more? Is this an organization that one would consider joining under any
circumstance? Compare the above characteristics with those to be found in a
church worshipping God through Christ, and make your choice.
from the spiritual warfare that is at the heart of this and so many others
of the world's ills is not easy. Freemasonry can run through generations
and families. Is there freemasonry in your past - or your present? If you
realize that you must come to terms with the reality of the battle in
progress between the forces of good and evil, you need to seek deliverance
- based on the forgiveness that can only come through Jesus.
to deliverance from freemasonry may be a hard one. It will come through the
love and prayer of those who can help you. Seek them out. There are some
denominations and organizations that refuse to accept masons. You are
likely to find help among the renewal groups denomination. The Alpha course
contains an opportunity for deliverance from spiritual warfare.
