SCRIPTURE !!!

Where is the proof from SCRIPTURE that a Christian can not be a Freemason? That is what Rebel wants to know and I am sure he is not the only one. And yet, even though it had all been presented here before, he INSISTS on being led by the hand a second time. Well Rebel, as a token of my sincere wish for you to see the light, I thought about you specifically when I wrote this post. Yet I must confess, I suspect you are the kind that will walk right into a brick wall of Biblical proof against anything YOU WANT TO DO and you will still not recognize it for what it is. Nevertheless, I have the faith that it will be beneficial, if not to you, hopefully to another reader who might find this question disturbing enough to pay heed and listen.

Below I list merely a few examples of scripture that comes readily to hand. Should one make an exhaustive study of the subject, I am convinced many more will be found.

In keeping with the foundational structure of the argument, let us just start by defining – what is a Christian? The short definition is; a Christian is a person that gave his life to Christ, a person that accepted Jesus into his heart as his personal Lord and Saviour. If you are not such a person this terminology might sound somewhat strange to you, but it won’t if you are in fact such a person. If you are not a Christian, this whole argument does not really apply to you directly.

Many people call themselves Christians but are not really REAL Christians in the full sense of the word. I know. I have been one myself for many years.

The question we are debating; “CAN A CHRISTIAN BE A FREEMASON” applies to REAL Christians.

So here is a question for you – Are you a REAL Christian?

A real Christian wants to please God above all else. He wants to be obedient to God. If God makes it clear in his Word what pleases Him and what not, that is the guide you want to follow if you want to please God, right? That leaves another question;

Do you want to please God or do you want to please yourself?

God said that He is a jealous God.

Exod 20:5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

Deut 4:24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Do you really want to continue offending God by acknowledging ALL other gods when He expressly forbids it in His word, knowing full well that He will punish offenders who do so.

He also said that He is the only God, there is no other saviour but Him.

Deut 4:35 You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.

Deut 4:39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

Deut 5:7 “You shall have no other gods before me.

His first commandment makes it clear as well

Ex 20:2-3 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.  You shall have no other gods before me.”

Yet masons do as the devil commands; “Do as though willst!”

They disregard that scripture because they want to do as THEY want.

They acknowledge ALL gods that you can mention, right? Right!

Acknowledging any other god is IDOLATRY !!!

(Extract from a previous post – in blue italics)

This is the exact teaching of the Bible. All worship and acknowledgement paid to any god apart from Jesus Christ is idolatry.

“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know that which is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols” (I John 5:20-21).

“Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters … shall inherit the kingdom of God (I Cor. 6:9-10).

Can you afford to continually affront God Almighty with the iniquitous way by which freemasonry acknowledges ALL gods? Do you actually know what you are doing?

Furthermore, one of the commands Jesus gave us is to go into all the world and preach the gospel.

Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.

Now here is another question. Can you as a mason that calls himself a REAL Christian go into your lodge (as a mason) and do that, witness about Jesus and win souls for God’s Kingdom?

No, you can not. Your constitution prohibits it!

So what is actually happening is this; Jesus Christ is being DENIED in your lodge!

Look what the Scriptures say about denying Jesus;

“Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father …” (I John 2:23).

“That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him (John 5:23).

Oh, the insult of it! To exclude Jesus Christ from the main building of Masonry, the foundation and basis of Masonry, and then offer Him a place in a side room along with Mohammed, Buddha, and the rest of the “thieves and robbers.” Masonry had better left Him out altogether than to offer Him this crowning insult. Even if some of His professed followers seem to be strangely blind, Masonry ought to have known that Jesus Christ would accept no place at all unless it be the place of preeminence.

Colossians 1:18 declares that “in all things” Christ must have “the preeminence.” Masonry refuses Him the place of preeminence!

So, as a REAL Christian, should you not be asking yourself – WHAT AM I DOING HERE? What is there to gain here but everlasting sorrow?

…and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” (2 Cor.6: 14, 15)

    Freemasonry does not worship or “Acknowledge” any other god as it is not a religion, does not take the place of a religion, and does not conflict with any religion. Using that argument is like arguing that reading your BLOG is a sin. You’ve acknowledged other gods more than any Lodge on earth in the past month…you keep claiming other Masons acknowledge these gods for some reason when they tell you, “No we don’t.” Your conspiracy theory has been proven wrong, time and time again…

    “Deut 4:35 You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.

    Deut 4:39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

    Deut 5:7 “You shall have no other gods before me.

    His first commandment makes it clear as well

    Ex 20:2-3 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.  You shall have no other gods before me.””

    –Same here, continuing down the same line of scripture. Masonry is not a religion, no one performs any worship of any pagan gods… Move on…

    “Yet masons do as the devil commands; “Do as though willst!”

    They disregard that scripture because they want to do as THEY want.

    They acknowledge ALL gods that you can mention, right? Right!

    Acknowledging any other god is IDOLATRY !!!”

    –So quit acknowledging other gods…Masonry does not acknowledge other gods, does not worship, does not attempt to take the place of any ones religion… Again, you are wrong in your accusations. Stop falsely accusing others of wrong doings…

    “To exclude Jesus Christ from the main building of Masonry”
    No one has done that either… I wear my cross, have my Faith and not excluded Christ. Again, we’re not talking about a church but a place of diverse men. If it’s not a sin to walk into a college, then it’s not a sin to walk into a Lodge – both equally diverse. So is it a sin, too, to go to college and seek a higher education since Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, and Hindus attend as well? Better yet, would you consider walking into a grocery store a sin if you saw a wiccan working the cash register? There’s no difference…both equally diverse.

    BTW, Masons follow their religion, personally… So again your argument remains absurd since you’ve been completely wrong with your allegations.

    “So, as a REAL Christian, should you not be asking yourself – WHAT AM I DOING HERE? What is there to gain here but everlasting sorrow?”

    You never answered my question… Is John Wayne in hell? I know what I’m doing here, working with a vast number of scholars learning a lot about our world’s history while at the same time helping other people. What are you doing? Calling others “Infidels” while claiming they will definitely burn in hell but at the same time unable to say for a fact that John Wayne, 33 degree mason, is in hell or in heaven?

    The argument would be good if you spoke any truth about Masonry. I’m not sure why this whole crusade on “Acknowledging” other gods pooped up again right after you agreed that Masonry is not a religion or does it claim to be…That’s very inconsistent…And its obvious that you have no clue or what it is you should use in order to condemn an organization. There’s some personal issues shining in between the lines and you are grasping for straws trying to make a good organization look bad. It’s ironic to say this organization is evil when it founded freedom for individuals to worship and do so with the ability to read and write. In other words, not just worship, but do so knowing what the bible says – education (History, Mathematics, Science, Art, and Music.)

    The greatest minds in history were Masons and we find one person on a silly BLOG striving to put them in hell through sheer ignorance, conjuring up with any allegation he so dreams, not caring if its true or not. It’s a blessing to know that you have no authority over a man’s soul…

    Yes I am back and no need to mock me about that again. I was away for a good reason. I was seaking answers from God about the real purpose of this blog, because this bashing from a brother Christian did not make any sense at all. In His own way God lead me to http://www.dayjewel.com. I came to the conclusion that this blog is based on the book “Ron Rhodes:Reasoning from the scriptures with Masons” Please explore this site and you will realise that this “you will burn in hell Christian Freemason” rhetoric is way of the mark. For everybody, it is not necessary to reinvent the wheel, all is on http://www.dayjewel.com

    So mote it be in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

    Hi anoyhermouse was away on bible course, back again, can a christian be a free mason ? i think you explained it very well, if there is still doubdt then nobody will be able to change people lik rebel, maybe one day if reborn he will experience the truth, no offence meant its just the way i see it and the way i experienced the HOLY SPIRIT when i gave my heart to JESUS CHRIST, Amen

  4. corrie Says:

    Ja Ja rebel, masonry does acknowledge other gods, there is no doubt about it,any man from any religion can become a mason,what more proof do you want, pagans, buddists, hindus, muslems all of them have their own gods they believe in and you as a christian accept this ? then yes you do acknowledge other gods, point, you know they pray to other gods but you accept it ? sorry my friend, if i were you i would pray for forgiveness for putting GOD THE FATHER OF JESUS CHRIST on equal par as the pagan gods,

  5. Rebel Says:

    By accepting do you mean talking to others of different cultures and beliefs, being friends with those of different races, then I guess I do. I’m not a racists, bigot, or tyrant and I don’t believe in fascism as that wouldn’t be very kind to others as no one wants to be controlled by another human.

    I’m not going to change that about me.

    Your term of accepting seems to be conflicting unless you live in a fascist/communist country and or completely racist and discriminatory toward others who do not believe as you which is awful extreme and can be seen as rather dangerous as history has shown.

    That’s not me, thus the term “Rebel”. I prefer not to be a part of a self proclaimed “Christian” group who hates everyone even their own congregation for their ideals and interpretations may differ.

    Call me what you will but I have never seen hate love or discrimination accept; And as I recall Christ says to love one another and to welcome others and that God made and loves everyone; we are instructed to strive to be more like Him.

    If you are unwilling to even accept others, how is that possible?

    Rationality and Reasoning…Think about it.

  6. Rebel Says:

    And BTW, Masonry does not acknowledge other gods unless your definition of “Acknowledge” in this discussion means allowing others of different religions participate.

    To exclude others would mean to discriminate and do away with the whole concept that all men are created equal by giving the impression that “If you do not believe as I do then you are below me.” That within itself would be seen as a “Sin” as “Pride” becomes involved… No one is better than the next person… We’re all equal…

    Masonry is not a religion, does not take the place of religion – MasonicInfo.com, do the homework.

    So in your case, if Masonry does not discriminate, then that means we “Acknowledge” other gods… Refer back to my previous response…

  7. Aaron Says:

    Masonry makes no comment whatsoever on what god or gods do or do not exist. Neither does the U.S. Congress and it opens with a prayer to “god” not Jesus, not Shiva, not Baal, just “god”. If you are a Christian you hear the prayer to your God, if you are Jew you hear a prayer to your God, if you are a Muslim you hear a prayer to your God, if you are a Hindu you hear a prayer to your God(s) and so on. You simply hate everyone who does not believe what you do and want them all to be forced to believe what you do. You are probably on of those people who thought it was “the Lord’s work” when “Christian” protestors tried to shout down a Hindu Chaplin from opening the U.S. Senate.

    Your heartfelt need to spread well documented lies puts the lie to your story about being saved. The Lord does not save liars. The “evindence” of being saved is in the way one lives their life. Yours does not seem to indicate the status claimed.
