Should Christians Be Masons?
Masonry: a substitute for your church?
Satan has always used two approaches to getting people away from following the Lord:
- Get them involved in something to replace their relationship with God. Anything is fine, whether a religious system, an old-boys club, or a fast-track to riches. Take up all their time and energy with anything but Jesus.
- Get them into something where they build a close bond, a comaraderie with unbelievers. It works best if it is a club where any kind of Christian witnessing would be an affront, an offense to the decency of the club.
Masonry meets both requirements.
- By the time a man spends hours memorizing the complex rituals and meeting with his buddies, he is fully committed, and fully busy.
- When Masonry becomes central in his life, the man will not violate Masonry's principle that all roads lead to heaven, by daring to witness that Jesus is the Only Way. Soulwinning ends.
The result, over time, is spiritual decay. He loses that first love for God and becomes just another "good old boy" who prospers in business because he is part of the club.
But it doesn't stop there. Because the fathers of Masonry were often satanists or occultists, the whole system is filled with pagan symbolism. The father of the whole system, Satan, just could not resist putting his fingerprints all over it.
