Fail.

Please cite page references. The book is available online and people can read the quotations in context. That is hard with random quotations culled from a larger work and listed without reference to the printing number, and page. That is a technique of people engaged in a smear.

BTW – a little bit of googling followed by reading the book on-line finds Masons told on page iv that they may accept or reject anything in the book as they see fit.

BTW II – I checked out that ex-masons for jesus site you have quoted from. What a pathetic lot of jokers attacking ANY religion that is not exactly theirs. Theirs seems to be some extreme form of Pentacostal or Charismatic Christianity mixed with some sort of fundamentalism.

I am certain that you lot convert many Hindus by screaming at them that they worship demons. Sort of like saying EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS ARE SHALLOW, ANTI-INTELLECTUAL, HATE FILLED, IGNORANT DUPES WHO ARE DECIEVED BY FALSE TEACHERS, FAULTY INTERPRETATIONS OF SCRIPTURE, AND THE NEED TO SHOW UP OTHER PEOPLE AS NOT AS VIRTUOS AS THEY ARE.

Wouldn’t you rather leave your false cult?

There, I’ve opened a dialogue with you just like that ex-masons site does with Hindus and Masons. I can’t imagine what they think of a Hindu Mason.

Lets talk.

And my reply is;

Thank you for the invitation Aaron. I will gladly talk with you.

Morals and Dogma.
I heard just yesterday from a dear friend of mine (yip, he is a mason) that many masons have discredited Pike. They (according to him) do not approve of what he says, maintaining it to be false and full of lies. Yet, one does need some sort of reference base to work from and I am not aware that the position on Pike is universally accepted by all masons. Until that is established and failing recourse to another source, the Morals and Dogma still do give some insight. Then there is the individual rituals for the various degrees. These are also available on-line.

Comparing these to the Bible will clearly show up where the contradictions lie.

I found a good copy of the Morals and Dogma at;

There is also one in PDF format that makes searching and referencing easy. You are correct. Quotations do need to be read in context to make any sense. Therefore I propose to do this the right way, quoting from reference and avoiding any form of smear campaign without factual reference.

The Ex-masons for Jesus site is in the same boat I’m in. To really appreciate that position one has to have been a mason (excuse the bad grammar, this is not my mother tongue). One also need to be a Christian in the full sense of the word.

I can see that anybody that had not committed to Christ fully may see those that did as being fundamental and any number of other adjectives. And the behaviour of some converts may leave much to be desired. Unfortunately none of us are perfect. We are all human. The Bible says to measure each by their fruits. One of the things it teaches is that we should not judge.

And this is exactly where it gets interesting sometimes. You see, a Christian will tell you that there is only one way to heaven. That is the Gospel. It is the clear word of God speaking straight to our hearts.
Often, when attempting to get the Word across, one appears judgemental and aloof, not meaning to be that way of course. It is a challenging paradox.

Of course we get to chose. God gave us that choice. We are all free to follow our hearts. He desperately wants us to chose Him but it must be our own decision. Nobody can force you into anything against your will.

And I agree with you. It is a strange, mad, confusing world we live in. So many voices all saying something different, professing to tell the truth and having all the answers. I know, it is not easy.

God Bless.
