Can a Christian be a Freemason?

I was once a mason and very proud of it. I did my best to spread the word and to get many initiated into the order. The old and ancient landmarks of brotherly love, charity and tolerance echoed through my soul and touched a deep chord of inner satisfaction. I glowed with an intense conviction: “I am doing the right thing!” I felt good about myself, my brethren and all the order stood for.

Then I got saved.

Jesus knocked on the door of my heart one late evening in April, I opened, He entered and we had that “meal” he talks about in Rev. 3:20. Those of you who have had that experience will, I am sure, testify that it is the single most wonderful thing that can happen to anyone alive! And you know what? It is available to all of us. At this very moment He is knocking on your door too! All you have to do is open it and let Him in.

As a result of being saved and thus been born again, one views the world through different eyes. One’s priorities change! One clearly see things the way they really are! One of the things that came to me as quite a shock was the deep opposition my beloved order stands into in relation to Jesus, my Saviour! I really enjoyed masonry. All my friends were masons! Yet, the undeniable fact stood firm and steadfast. I just had to leave – I had to resign from the order and leave behind all that I held dear for so long. There is just NO WAY the order can be reconciled with Jesus. ANY TRUE CHRISTIAN WILL TELL YOU THIS! How did I know? Well, the Spirit speaks to one unequivocally. The texts in the Bible jumps out at one and when I did a Google-search on the subject I was astounded at the amount of material available that gave clear Biblical proof as to why one can not be a Christian AND a freemason at the same time. Being a follower of Christ just does not allow for it, as simple as that. Want proof? This whole blog is packed full of it and I add material on a regular basis.

Google the sentence “can a christian be a freemason” and you will be surprised to find a multitude of excellent references on the subject. As in any google-search one will undoubtedly find a measure of ill-conceived and hard-to-believe drivel, yet amongst all of that you will find a multitude of hard-hitting, objective, to-the-point material that hits the nail smack on the head with sound reasoning, mind shattering, demystifying biblical proof that answers the above question fully;

NO, A CHRISTIAN CAN NOT BE A FREEMASON!

Only a person who is willingly ignorant, dum by choice, to put it harshly, will dare stand up to argue against such overwhelming evidence.

This blog serves as a flashing WARNING light to you, dear reader, if you are a freemason. Think carefully about the trap you are in. You have the option to come out of there and you know it. All you have to do is TO DO IT!

Will that solve all the problems regarding what the adres will be of your eternal abode? Not at all. But it will be a start. Being trapped in the place you are spells only one thing for you. Eternal doom!

It required me to be saved before I could see it. Now that I am “in the Light” I do not see why anyone should perish for the lack of not being warned. Therefore I started this blog, to get the word out to you, dear Brother. Please consider it carefully. Your salvation is at stake! God gave us all a free will. We can decide ;life or death, the decision is OURS! But oh, how dearly He wishes for us to chose life. (Deut. 30:19).

When we meet Him on our knees at His throne one day, what would you rather have Him say to you:

Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. (Matt. 25:23)

or

I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matt. 7:23).

The choice is yours!

    I couldn’t find in the bible where it mentions the Freemasons, and how God is against them. Can you help me out?

  2. anothermouse Says:

    I always wanted to know about Mormonsim, it is also not mentioned! Nor is Nazism or abortion or animal cruelty or spitting in someone else’s food! Wow! Does that make it OK then, if it is not mentioned?

  3. Greg Says:

    And when you say why you can’t be a Mason, remember its because a Blog told you that you couldn’t.

  4. Aaron Says:

    I really can’t believe there is someone dumb or stupid enough to make the argument anothermnouse just did. But this IS the internet.

  5. anothermouse Says:

    My dear friends, if there had been but a mere modicum of intelligence to be observed in your remarks, I would have been compelled to a remorseful sense of quilt about that dum-by-choice quip. Alas, my fears for that event is unfortunately still in vain. I do however trust that more sincere souls read this blog and is thereby led to a process of objective reevaluation of their position in relation to eternity. It is for them that I will continue my efforts – despite the likes of the scoffing few who prefer to scoff and choke in smoke while the house is burning down.

  6. LOUDelf Says:

    All I submit is a request for information backing your point, and I’m told that there isn’t a “mere modicum of intelligence to be observed in your remarks”? Please explain how a request for information is somehow unintelligent? It sounds like you need to be saved again… from your own ego.

  7. anothermouse Says:

    Cool down LOUDelf and read through the whole blog. Read all the past posts in the archives and the pages found in the right-hand column. It has all been published some time ago. If, after that you still want more, ask again. I’ll do my best to help.

    Hi Anothermouse and Corrie,

    I was out of the country on business the past three weeks. Sadly you are still echoing the same perculiar brand of Christianity, Bible interpretations and understanding of Freemasonary. You are missing the point, do you realy think you are the only reborn and saved Christians? Think again my friend. Although I am not a pilot by profession like yourself, that does not give you the authority to utter the following nonsense ” My dear friends, if there had been but a mere modicum of intelligence to be observed in your remarks, I would have been compelled to a remorseful sense of quilt about that dum-by-choice quip. Alas, my fears for that event is unfortunately still in vain” That is a distasteful and unasked for remark. After reading and studying al the posts the only intelligent conclusion is that a Christian must be a Freemason.

  9. Aaron Says:

    Anothermouse:

    Your quip was little more than a Freudian slip which reveals that your brand of “Christianity” has more in common with virulent Fundamentalist Islam than any historical model of Christianity.

  10. Bill Lawson Says:

    Hi, Anothermouse –
    I read a lot of blogs regularly, and I have to say it’s not really traditional or helpful to take a position and then require people to read a whole lot of other stuff to figure out /why/ you’re taking that position.

    Based on past criticisms of Freemasonry, I’m going to assume that you felt convicted because Christianity and secrecy don’t really go together, and/or because Freemasonry requires loyalty that seemed to you in opposition of the primary, higher-priority loyalty to God.

    However, I think some of that reasoning may not be really valid these days. Freemasonry is more like a social club these days, and there are plenty of associations that require high loyalty that are not in opposition to Christianity (like, loyalty to one’s country, for instance).

    The secrecy is really more circumspection these days, and many former secrets about Freemasonry are no longer secret.

    Exclusivity isn’t in opposition really, either, particularly since there would be few examples of someone really suffering because they could not get recommended into membership.

    Freemasonry is a brotherhood that encourages lots of Christian characteristics in members, too. In fact, Freemasons are responsible for a lot of good, charitable community works, and I’d say that’s their primary “fruit” these days. Even in the past, this was the primary work, I think — in Texas, for instance, Masons built lots of towns and churches. See:

    http://www.stoppingpoints.com/texas/freemasons/

    So, I don’t think the two pursuits are at all in opposition.

    If you’d like to better explain where you’re coming from, I’d be interested in the discourse, though.

    Martin,
    Your comment does not do much to change the status quo regarding what I remarked about my own quip… Of course I would still be doing the same, what do you think might have changed? My peculiar brand of Christianity, Bible interpretations and understanding of Freemasonry? What is peculiar about it? Please explain. (Welcome back).

    Bill Lawson,
    Thank you for an intelligent and considered look at the subject. That is the kind of tone I was accustomed to from the many fine gentlemen I knew as brethren when I was in the order.

    No, I did not feel convicted by anything in masonry. As I mentioned, I really enjoyed my masonry a lot. And you are right, there is a LOT of good to be said about freemasonry – undeniably, without a doubt. It was also not the exclusivity or secrecy that was my reason for resigning.

    I resigned because of a genuine conflict that, I discovered, exists between what a true Christian believes and certain aspects of freemasonry. That is a serious statement, because one’s eternal destiny is at stake. Yet millions of very fine gentlemen are (inadvertently) deceived into believing freemasonry is innocent and pure before God (Jahveh, God of the Christian Bible) and I wish to assure you that it is not! As a Christian I feel compelled to warn as many as will listen about this grave threat. It is addressed to all the millions of fine upstanding gentlemen in the order as well as my fine brethren and friends I left behind.

    You may have a valid point; it may be unreasonable to expect one to read the whole blog. For that reason I will publish my reasoning on a single page, explaining the entire argument in full.

    Thank you again for your comment and welcome to the debate.

  12. LOUDelf Says:

    anothermouse,

    I still haven’t seen anything in your arguments, or in the bible that really describes why exactly Freemasonry violates your christian sensibilities. Wasn’t at least one pope a Freemason?

    I tend to find similar sentiment as Bill Lawson’s well-thought post. I really think the two could co-exist based on what I’ve seen.

  13. anothermouse Says:

    LOUDelf,
    If you are really serious about finding certainty for yourself about this question I suggest you do a serious study about the issue. You should study the doctrine, rituals, constitution and all you can find about freemasonry in the finest detail. Then you should study the Bible in depth to discover God’s will as He presents it to us in His word. Finally you should pray to our Lord that He may open your eyes and reveal the truth to you. If you do this, I believe He will enlighten you. It is so easy to disregard what we don’t want to hear or see and only to see and hear that what we want or are in agreement with. At the end of the day it is not what WE want or find agreeable that will get us in heaven, but what our Father in heaven finds agreeable and approves of. There is no EASY answer. Not even this blog can hope to produce the answer in a simple paragraph or two. It is just not that easy. Now, on this blog I have produced a lot of written material. Should I just keep on repeating myself? It is all there, just go and read it. What I will do one of these days, as I promised earlier, is to publish a page with some of the most convincing proof and arguments at my disposal. But I can tell you now already, not even that will satisfy everybody. It just is not that easy!

    Can you answer this;
    1. Are you a Freemason?
    2. If so, what made you become one?
    3. Are you allowed to stand up in your Lodge and witness about Jesus with the hope of winning a soul for Christ?

    Please answer these and I might be able to get you closer to an answer.
    God bless.

  14. LOUDelf Says:

    anothermouse,

    I would suggest that if you want to make a point, you bring the evidence forward to your questioners, instead of asking them questions, or running them around in a circle. I have asked some simple questions, yet have not seen an answer anywhere.

  15. Martin Says:

    Dear Anothermouse,

    I will not comment on your Christianity or Bible interpretations, that is your persnal business, although peculiar to me I still respect your view. Regarding Freemasonary it is another story.

    Your understanding:

    “Yet, what does the freemasons do? What do they proclaim? They profess to be tolerant toward ALL religions. They acknowledge that there are other gods in existence! They do this to such an extent that they do not even address God by His proper name when they pray, least one of the “other” gods or their followers take offense. Heaven forbid that should happen.”

    Facts from the GLSA Constitution And Laws:

    1. The first condition of admission into, and membership of, the Order is a belief in The Supreme Being referred to by F.M. as T.G.A.O.T.U., and His revealed will. This is essential and admits no compromise.
    2. The Bible, referred to by Freemasons as the volume of the Sacred Law, is always open in the Lodges. Every candidate is required to take his Obligation on that Book or on the Volume which is held by his particular creed to impart sanctity to an oath or promise taken upon it. That the Three Great Lights of Freemasonary (viz. the T.V.O.S.L., the square and the Compasses) should always be exhibited when the Grand Lodge or its Lodges are at work, the chief of these being T.V.O.S.L.
    3. Everyone who enters Freemasonary is at the outset strictly forbidden to countenance any act which may have a tendency to subvert the peace and good order of society; he must never be remiss in the allegiance due to the Head of State of his country.
    4. while South African Freemasonary thus inculcates in each of its members the duties of loyalty and citizenship, it reserves to the individual the right to hold his own opinion with regard to public affairs. But neither in Lodge, nor any time in his capacity as a Freemason, is he permitted to discuss or to advance his views on religious or political questions.

    For the best will on earth, I cannot read your understanding into the official document. May be the following will help you.

    Matt 6:5-146:5 “When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. 6:6 But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 6:7 In praying, don’t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking. 6:8 Therefore don’t be like them, for your Father knows what things you need, before you ask him. 6:9 Pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. 6:10 Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. 6:11 Give us today our daily bread. 6:12 Forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. 6:13 Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’

    6:14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 6:15 But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

    what?????
    The writer of this blog is not or have not been a member of the craft for he did not understand what;s freemasonry is all about. Freemasonry is not and doesnt teaches religion.. It is an organization like any club with a purpose, the only difference is how men of this group get closer together in helping out their respective community regardless of your race, religion or affiliation..doesnt discriminate and willing to lend a hand to non-members much more to its members..

    there is no connection whatsoever to any faith or religion that can interfere with one[s faith..

    members of this society are men of their own faith, an islam, hindu, buddhist, christians… and now how can a certain Christian faith says that freemasonry contradicts Christianity.. Freemasonry promotes tolerance to each others faith.. embraces all men of different faith..

    Many of Christian societies merely expresses faith and condems men of diff religion… can anybody tell me if this is a Christian act???

    if this Christian faith will tell me that I am mingling evil men, Id rather get out of that church rather than to condemn or leave my good fellow masons jst to prove my faith,

      The writer of this blog was indeed a mason (for 15 years) and understand fully what freemasonry is all about!

      Freemasonry is indeed a false religion, as my latest post clearly proves (thanks to the brethren at emfj.org).

      God’s Word is truth! Just read your Bible.

      Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

      And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)

      • LOUDelf Says:

        As freemasonry does not itself preach religion, but instead allows others to operate within it’s body, how is it a false religion?

        As a matter of fact, one of the things specifically forbidden from conversation in the body of a lodge is religion. They do this to prevent friction between members of different faiths and beliefs. Again, not false religion… not religion at all.
