It is difficult for churchgoers to believe that the Holy Spirit has left the entire institutional church. Churchgoers will readily admit that some churches are defiled, but they will adamantly contend that “good churches” still exist in the land. So to present a rational argument to the contrary, we need to go back in history and examine the influence of one particular group on the entire organized church system: Freemasons.
Although freemasons claim not to be a religion, the Freemasons are one of the most secretive and controversial religious groups in the world.
In a way, it is a universal religion in that potential members must believe in a higher power. Like 12 Steps, the masonic lodges claim not to care what higher power that is, but you must define it for yourself. However, besides the secret handshakes and numerous other rituals, the deeper you go into their trenches, the one freemasons all seem to be worshipping is Lucifer.
In his article entitled “Freemasonry and the Christian Church,” Russ Wise seriously sums up the dilemma for a churchgoer:
The central question that every Christian Mason must ask himself is “Who is Jesus Christ according to the Lodge?” Freemasonry’s founder Albert Pike was greatly influenced by the occult. In fact, Pike was responsible for the rewriting of the rituals for all the degree work beyond that of Master Mason.
Because of Pike’s influence, Freemasonry has adopted an universalist approach toward divinity. According to Jim Shaw, a 33rd degree Mason who left the Lodge, Masonry teaches that “Jesus was just a man. He was one of the exemplars,’ one of the great men of the past, but not divine and certainly not the only means of redemption of lost mankind. He was on a level with other great men of the past like Aristotle, Plato, Pythagoras and Mohammed. His life and legend were no different from that of Krishna, the Hindu god. He is the son of Joseph,’ not the Son of God.”(18)
Jesus Christ is not to be looked upon as God incarnate, or as the Savior of humanity, but He is to be considered as no different from any other great spiritual leader or guru. To follow through with this conclusion, the Lodge does not permit the name of Jesus or Christ to be used in any of its prayers or rituals.
So clearly, to be a Christian Mason, you must blaspheme God by practicing idolatry.
Consider this. A little over two centuries ago, the first two African-American Churches, the AME and the AME Zion churches were founded by men who were also the first members of the Prince Hall Lodge. The female counterpart known as the Eastern Stars came later in 1850. Even more revealing is that every Black denomination whether it be Baptist or Pentecostal, is a branch from the first two black Methodist churches. Therefore, like yeast, the freemasonry influence spread to every other black church or affiliation.
So let us examine this issue with the simplicity of the Lord’s logic. as a little leaven spoils the entire loaf, the Saviour taught that if you want to know the nature of a tree, examine its roots. A good tree does not bring forth evil fruit. An evil tree does not bring forth good fruit. Simple. Moreover, look at the foundation. If its origins are not built on the solid Rock which is Jesus Christ Himself. then its foundation has been laid on sand. The fruit of a sandy foundation is wood, hay and stubble.
As a further consequence, all who add to or detract from the gospel of Jesus Christ are cursed according to Paul’s warning to the Galatian believers. The freemasonry influence in the black church is pervasive because the founding fathers of both Prince Hall and the African-American Church are one and the same folk. Simply put, the African-American Church is cursed because of Paul’s admonition to the Galatian believers:
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel– which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! (Galatians 1:8-9)
Masonic Christians, both blacks and whites, have made a treaty with Pagans who worship other god’s, namely the Hindus, the Moslems, the Buddhists and those of all other false religions. They gather around a strange altar, the altar of Freemasonry, and worship a god named the Great Architect of the Universe (GAOTU).
Since the GAOTU is a fallen angel, the Christian Mason of the Prince Hall Lodges have been assembling around a strange altar, worshipping a false god for more than 200 hundred years!!!
So you tell me.
as one small, but significant example, I was once a pastor of a black church. I refused to allow the masonic members of my congregation–who were trustees and other church leaders— to hold their masonic ceremonies in the church under my pastoral authority. they reported me to the bishop who is the one who gave me the appointment.
The bishop is a Prince Hall masonic lodge member. Need I tell you who won that battle? this occurred in 1994. This particular bishop not only removed me from that charge, but in 10 years as a bishop in my region, he never gave me another appointment. In 1996, I started a storefront church that this bishop ignored for the next 8 years.
In fact, this particular bishop’s last official act in June 2004 at the western new york conference was to remove my name from the church rolls in spite of the fact that I had 25 years of ministerial service in good standing!
without a doubt, the Prince Hall Masonic Lodge rules the entire black church. All churches under its rule have become a dwelling place of demons.
There are no exceptions.
