I will continue Quoting Masonic sources today, however, before I do let me share some revealing information:
From the August 1992 edition of "THE SCOTTISH RITE JOURNAL" page 4, we get the following:
"In early April, the worldwide CompuServe network established a Masonic message section that has become very active with callers from Europe, Africa, and Australia as well as North and South America…To access the Masonic section, log onto CompuServe, GO NEW AGE, Section 8, (Masonry)."
Now back to the Masonic Lodge quotes:
John Ankerberg sent inquires to the Grand Lodges of all fifty states as to whom they considered to be the authorities on the subject of the Masonic Lodge. Half responded with the following results:
44% -- COIL’S MASONIC ENCYLOPEDIA by Henery Wilson Cool
36% -- THE BUILDERS by Joseph Fort Nowton
32% -- MACKEY’S REVISED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FREEMASONRY
24% -- INTRODUCTION TO FREEMASONRY by Carl H. Claudy.
I will not take space to list those 20% and below, however, Pike’s MORALS AND DOGMA was last at 16%.
Since Masonry is built around deception (by their own admission), it is doubtful these figures can be trusted.
Assuming the poll was valid, I’ll quote from COIL’S MASONIC ENCYCLOPEDIA;
"Freemasonry has a religious service to commit the body of a deceased brother to the dust from whence it came, and to speed the liberated spirit back to the Great Source of Light. Many Freemasons make this flight with no other guarantee of a safe landing than their belief in the religion of Freemasonry.""(page 512).
"Light is everywhere the symbol of intelligence, information, knowledge and truth, and it is opposed to darkness which symbolizes ignorance and evil. So, in the ceremonies, the Candidate is said to be brought from darkness to light." (page 375)
Although there are those who deny the Masons are Luciferians, there is ample proof that there is a connection. I will deal more with later. Here is a quote from (Lost Keys of Freemasonry, Manly P. Hall, page 49) which I have been told is still available from the Masons:
"When a Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands and before he may step onward or upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy." (Lost keys of Freemasonry, Manly P. Hall Page 48)
BEFORE YOU WRITE OF CALL WITH OBJECTIONS, I SUGGEST YOU CHECK THE DATES ON YOUR CERTIFICATES FOR THIS: AD, AL MEANING: "YEAR OF LUCIFER".
