Re: Are the Masons evil?
No Room In The Inn
According to Jim Shaw, former 33rd degree Mason, who officially resigned from Masonry, after becoming a Christian and studying the Bible, as he wrote in Deadly Deception: "there is underlying all Masonic thinking and writing, an attitude and spirit of elitism which says, "Masonry is not for everyone, just for the select few." At the same time Masonry teaches it is the only true religion and that all other religions are but corrupted and perverted forms of Masonry.
This is both elitist and contradictory, in that it leaves no hope for the non-elite to ever be able to find the "true religion." Freemasonry proudly proclaims it makes good men better; but this leaves no provision for bad men to ever be able to become good." He continues: "It is significant, I think, that those whom Masonry rejects and excludes are the very ones Jesus sought out to accept and minister to:
The Lodge excludes and rejects the blind, for they cannot see to engage in the signs and due-guards; it rejects the crippled and maimed, for they cannot assume the body positions necessary for the signs and due-guards. The deaf are excluded because they cannot hear the "secret" words. The poor are excluded, for they cannot pay the fees and dues. The mentally challenged are rejected because they cannot memorize the correct questions and answers to be recited in rituals in order to function in the Lodge. The emotionally ill are rejected because they cannot be trusted with the "secrets." Historically, blacks and women have been excluded simply because they are considered unsuitable." YET, its members consider themselves very sane and stable.Who are they kidding ??.. All have mental questions to even join in the first place.To be so corrupt....so criminally insane,mentally insane...to gangstalk the helpless....to murder the helpless...to teach there children to hate the "profane", you and i, the non masons...to worship not 1 but 3 evil gods.....to join something and swear to, not having NO idea what you have sworn to...pure insanity !!! ....to enjoy little boys and girls.....even there own children.... and there mothers.....themselves in the rituals.
"Jesus, on the other hand proclaims that "whosoever will, may come" and receive His gift of redemption and that all may "take the water of life freely" (Rev. 22:17). He especially reached out to the blind, the crippled, the mentally challenged and mentally ill, the poor and the unwanted - the very ones Masonry excludes and rejects (as unworthy)."
Jesus Forbid the Bloody Pagan Oaths That Are Required of All Members of Freemasonry In Matthew 5:34-37, He said "But I say to you, make no oath at all either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the grat King. "Nor shall you make an oath on your head for you cannot make one hair white or black, "But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes' or 'No, no', and anything beyond these is of evil."
The oath of the 1st degree of Masonry, that of an Entered Apprentice, concludes with: "...binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut from ear to ear, my tongue torn out by its roots and buried in the rough sands of the sea at low-water mark where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly or willingly violate this my solemn oath and obligation as an Entered Apprentice Mason, so help me God."
The oath for the 2nd degree of Masonry, that of Fellow Craft, ends as follows: "...binding myself under no less penalty than having my left breast torn open, my heart plucked out, and given as a prey to the wild beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, so help me God..."
The 3rd degree oath, to become a Master Mason, is: "...having my body severed in twain, my bowels taken from thence and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered to the four winds of heaven, so that no more trace or remembrance may be had of so vile and perjured wretch as I..."
The oath to become a Knight of Malta (after taking in hand the upper part of a human skull containing wine): "This pure wine I now take in testimony of my belief in the mortality of the body and the immortality of the soul and may this libation appear as a witness against me both here and hereafter - and as the sins of the world were laid upon the head of the Savior, so may all the sins committed by the person whose skull this was be heaped upon my head, in addition to my own, should I ever knowingly or willingly violate or transgress any obligation that I have heretofore taken, take at this time, or shall at any future period take in relation to any degree of Masonry or order of Knighthood. So help me God."
Each of the above pagan Masonic oaths, except the shriners, which is sworn to Allah, the God of the Qu'ran, and of Muslims, conclude with the words, 'So help me God.' For a Christian to call upon God as a witness to these evil barbaric oaths, as he is voluntarily binding himself to a spirit of fear by agreeing to be murdered by his lodge brothers, or to mutilate and murder any Masonic brother who reveals Masonic secrets, is an incredibly sad and spiritually blind deed, and an abomination to God.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:28: "And fear not them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." In 2 Timothy 1:7, the Holy Spirit, writing through Paul tells us: "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
