Product Description

The Masonic Lodge offers its members social prestige, brotherhood, a sense of mystery, and opportunities for charitable work. But that's not all that goes on behind closed doors. Despite Masonry's promise to members that nothing in it conflicts with Christianity, plenty does---and Ankerberg and Weldon offer the eye-opening documentation to prove it. A carefully researched scrutiny of the beliefs, rituals, and teachings of the Masons. 333 pages, softcover from Moody.

    The Secrets of the Masonic Lodge

    "Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, `Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.' But I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God's throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. Simply let your `Yes' be `Yes,' and your `No,' `No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. (Matt. 5:33 -37)


    The initiation rituals of the "BLUE LODGES" and through all 33 degrees of Freemasonry, every Mason in the world is bound by bloody oaths to maintain the secrets of the Lodge. These binding oaths are kept through the spirit of Death, because the penalties for betraying the brethren of the lodge include serious physical harm to the Mason. Look at them from the perspective of Christ's admonition. The oath sworn by the Entered Apprentice or first degree: "binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low water mark." The Master Mason swears, under no less penalty than that of having my body severed in two, my bowels taken from thence and burned to ashes, the ashes scatter before the four winds of heaven" (Duncan's Ritual of Freemasonry, pp. 35 396, David McKay Pub.)


    The following quote can be found almost word for word in most Masonic Monitors, the Craft ritual manual. Each candidate, upon completion of the initiation is given a white Lambskin Apron whose pure and spotless surface, he is told, would be "an ever present reminder of purity of life and rectitude of conduct, and when at last, after a life of faithful service your weary feet shall have come to the end of life's toilsome journey and from your nerveless grasp shall have dropped forever the working tools of life, may the record of your life be as pure and spotless as this fair emblem which I place in your hands tonight, and when your trembling soul shall stand, naked and alone, before the Great White Throne, there to receive judgement for the deeds done while here in the body, may it be your portion to hear from Him who sitteth as the Judge Supreme, the welcome words: Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Thou hast been faithful over a few things; I will make thee rule over many things! Enter into the joy of thy Lord."

    The promise is that the apron represents the works of the flesh when the Mason stands before God at the Great White Throne judgement. There is only one Great White Throne Judgement in my Bible and it is found in REV 20:11-15. It is the judgement of those dead not in Christ, the judgement of the damned, who will be judged... not by the gift of God through Christ, but by their own works, with an end in the lake of fire. What a tragedy!

    This is a good book on the topic.Masonry is occultic and teaches what the bible clearly stamps as dangerous.This is a worthy survey from men who test masonry in light of the bible and expose its darkness.Freemasonry blasphemes the Trinity behind there closed doors and oftentimes members do not realize this.Another must reading is by Ron Rhodes called 'Reasoning From The Scriptures With The Masons' and a CD by Walter Martin called 'A Dialogue on Freemasonry' from Walter Martins website.

    This book was very informational for someone who is not familiar to the masonic lodge. It also does a great job of shedding light on the evils of the masonic lodge. I know I am out numbered in the reviews but I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone.

    Slanted in Treatment, Shallow in TheologyI give this book zero only because I can't give it a negative number. I will readily admit the Masonic lodge has its share of inconsistencies and shortcomings, but this volume has the tone and slant of a literary witch hunt. When I purchased this title, I knew it would be critical of the Masonic lodge, but I had no idea it would be filled with such anti-Masonic animosity. From the standpoint of the authors, being a Mason and being a Satanist are pretty much on the same level of wickedness and evil. A more balanced critique of Freemasonry would present some positive aspects of the craft as well as negative. I find nothing but venom here.I'm also greatly disappointed that the authors appear to be unable to make a distinction between general revelation and special revelation. This distinction is commonplace among all reputable Bible-believing, Christ-honoring theologians. Freemasonry is a religious fraternity (not a religion) based on general revelation. It does not claim to offer special revelation. The failure of the authors to distinguish between the two displays a very shallow grasp of basic Christian theology.Frankly, I have problems taking this book seriously. The motive seems to be one of grinding an ax against the Masonic lodge rather than trying to offer a respectable critique. I'm sorry I purchased this title. If you want to experience it firsthand, borrow it from someone else or try to find it in a public library.

    As a Christian I am appalled by the book. It is obvious they know nothing about the tenets of releif brotherly love and truth. What some people will do to make money. Save your money and spend it actually doing God's work rather than try to expose a group who actually does God's work and accepts people of all faiths, regardless of denomination. To spread lies about a fraternity who had a major impact on the founding of this nation is absurd. If our founding fathers were not Masons and beleived in masonic ideals we would still be under English rule. That is a fact look it up.
