For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds (“. John Letter 1:7-11).
Christian Forums: “The rationale for the Synod’s longstanding position on the lodges: “Pastors and laypeople must avoid membership or participation in any organization that in its objectives, ceremonies, or practices is inimical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ or the faith and life of the Christian church. It is because tenets and practices of Freemasonry conflict with the Biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ“.
The Catholic Church officially forbids Masonry – but since Pope Paul VI, the popes themselves seem to have been Masons. The mother of Masonry is Jesuitism which now rules the Vatican, which in 1963 enthroned Satan as its master.
Nevertheless, Lutheran Churches are now returning to the “M0ther church”
Out of the Blue 8 Febr. 2016: The Evangelical Alliance was founded in London in 1846 in Freemason’s Hall, the largest Freemason’s Hall, and remains a Freemason’s lodge. It is noteworthy that the worldwide Evangelical Alliance now has a permanent observer status at the UN.
The Freemasons show off to be committed to the public as a humanitarian organisation, man is the only decisive center. They plead for the tolerance of all religions, but they are a secret covenant, which aims to create a world without Jesus Christ, both politically and also religiously.
The extent to which this has already been achieved can be seen in the successes of these unity efforts of the churches and religions, as well as of the international community in the political sphere. Think of the United Europe or the United Nations, as well as the World Church Council; They are all intertwined with each other. The UN is known as the Great World Lodge of Freemasonry, with its seat in the Glass Palace in New York.
Freemasons want to create a better human being and a better society through human efforts. In the sense of self-salvation, without God, and above all without Jesus Christ. … The Freemasons want Christians to be more tolerant in every respect so that they can unite and mix everything up. For this, sin is trivialized and good is mixed with evil.
Evangelische Zentralstelle für Weltanschauungen Nov. 2010: Since the joint discussions with the VGLvD (1973), the Evangelical Church in Germany has had no objections with regard to the lodge membership of an evangelical Christian. It leaves it “to the free discretion of the individual” (cf. Pöhlmann, Misconduct, 188).
Evangelische Allianz in Deutschland 8. Okt. 2012: Evangelical Alliance in Germany 8 Oct. 2012: 1,500 Freemasons from 50 countries celebrated their rite in the Lutheran St. Michael’s Church in Hamburg.
A commentary by the Protestant theologian and worldview expert Michael Kotsch (Bad Meinberg): The main pastor of St. Michaelis, Alexander Röder, was sighted on 19 October at the Lodge house in the Moorweidenstraße.
Of the formerly 80,000 members in 1930, 14,000 are left today in Germany?? – around 5 million worldwide.
Nevertheless, one can be a member of the Evangelical Church of Germany and in a Masonic lodge. On its homepage, it states: “We say there are many ways to achieve the goal, e.g. Through discussions and conversations, through art, drama, music, painting, etc., perhaps religion. “
Every religion is considered merely one way among many to reach Masonic self-perfection. “As a freemason, we belong only to the general religion …”.
All members of the Swedish Rite must be Christian men.There is a close relationship with the Lutheran Church of Sweden, which is the established national church of Sweden. Priests and bishops of the Church of Sweden have a special role within the pervasive Swedish Rite of Freemasonry, particularly in grade VII and above.
Katholisches 21. Februar 2017: 300 years after the founding of the first Grand Lodge in the world, the Grand Lodge of London, founded in 1717, now the United Grand Lodge of England and the author of the entire Freemasonry in the world, primus inter pares of all Anglican bishops in the world, Justin Welby, is celebrating this anniversary in the Canterbury Cathedra, the Anglican primate of the country,
Although the Freemasons themselves announced on their website the Masonic ceremony in the Cathedral of Canterbury, neither the BBC nor a daily newspaper reported. This is called total control over the reporting. It is up to you to decide what is written about it.
Welby´s decision to open the main church of the Anglicans to a Freemason spectacle was quite controversial, but he succeeded. The Freemason ritual was led by the Anglican side of the dean of the cathedral, Robert Willis, who entered in vestments before his lodge brothers. In return, the lodge brothers donated 300,000 for being allowed to use the Canterbury cathedral. The money for the restoration purposefully flows into the building hut of the cathedral.
Masonic ashlars were built into the Canterbury Cathedral in memory of the ceremony
Welby is known for its proximity to Freemasonry. As a dean of the Anglican Cathedral of Liverpool, he ensured that a Freemason’s symbol would be placed on a lift that had been financed by the Lodges.
Due to this proximity, he is being criticized by parts of the Anglican church. Several clerics accuse him of not taking into account the Anglican synod resolutions in his “revaluation” of the relationship between Christianity and Freemasonry, most recently the decision of the general synod of 1987, but also of the judgments of various church judges.
No one, however, would doubt seriously that since the eighteenth century there has been a close connection between British Freemasonry and the Cathedral of Canterbury. The cathedral is always being bestowed by the Grand Lodge of London with considerable donations, which are used to restore the cathedral. The Masons thus symbolically want to celebrate their imaginary origin from the tradition of cathedral builder huts.
Roger Odd, the vice grandmaster of the province of Kent of the united Grand Lodge:
“Several Archbishops of Canterbury were Freemasons, including Geoffrey Fisher, who crowned our Queen.”
The Anglican primate Geoffrey Fisher was received on 2 December 1960 by Pope John XXIII (freemason). He was received in the Vatican when, after more than 400 years of the Ice Age, he started an approach between Catholics and Anglicans.
In a few days, on 26 February, Pope Francis will visit the Anglican church and community in Rome. On March 13, an Anglican liturgy will take place for the first time in the history of St. Peter’s Basilica. Pope Francis allowed part of the hour prayer to be celebrated in the Anglican rite. The occasion is the 50th anniversary of the Catholic-Anglican dialogue.
In front of 4.000 believers, Cardinal Nichols, took the renewed consecration of England and Wales to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the same time as the Freemasons celebrated in Canterbury.
Now Archbishop Cranmer (a blogger pseudonym) brings the liturgy of the 18 Febr. Service at the Canterbury Cathedral: All nicely Anglican and Christian – no pageantry.
Archbishop Cranmer analyzes the Biblical texts and points out they refer to the first Masons: King Solomon, King Huram of Tyre and Hiram Abiff, the constructor pf Solomon´s temple. Hiram Abiff was Killed and cut into pieces. In Masonry he is known as representing the builder of the Tower of Babel, Nimrod (the first NWO project) who was also killed and cut into pieces – whereupon his wife Semiramis (the Mother Goddess) bore him again as the God Baal/Lucifer – the God of Masonry.
So, the service at the Canterbury Cathedral was worthy of the Spirit of Freemasonry: Occult, secretive seduction of mankind away from Jesus Christ (although the Masons praise him in public).
The Spirit of Freemasonry is Satanic/Luciferian deception of gullible people
We can’t know what the Dean will say in his sermon (which is unlikely to be made public) but, on the face of it, this is a wholesome Anglican service of orthodox Christian liturgy.
The 2 pillars in the lodges represent Jachin and Boaz – the 2 pillars in Front of Solomon´s Temple
But here’s the interesting thing..
The scriptures chosen have greater significance (and a very different meaning) to Freemasons than they have to Christians. Indeed, they are used at the highest degree of Masonic initiation in their rituals of exaltation.
Note the reference to the north-side of Sion, which is the dwelling place of God (cf Ezekiel 1:4; Isa 14:12-14). According to William Schnoebelen (Masonry: Beyond the Light) the North side of a Grand Lodge is the place of darkness, or “benightedness and ignorance“. It is whence a new recruit enters (see Masonic Temple layout), blindfolded.
The second section of the University of Bradford’s ‘Web of Hiram‘ (cf 2Chron 2:1-9) observes that he is introduced as one who is in darkness.
The candiate for initiation is perambulated in a clockwise direction around the Temple, from the darkness of the North toward the light. The psalmist’s ‘Walk about Sion‘ is linked to this rotation. Thus is the north-side, the city of the great King, presented as the place of darkness, from which the candidate moves toward true enlightenment about the nature of the “Almighty Father and Supreme Governor of the Universe” (Lucifer).
In 2003, 8% Danish vicars were Masons – probably much more today. But Freemasons or Not: Many are spreading Luther’s false doctrine that the baptism certificate is a universal indulgence, according to which the commandments of Christ could be ignored.
