It is written:
“I can say this about them: They really try hard to follow God, but they don’t know the right way.” (Romans 10:2)
Albert Mackey was a leading Masonic scholar. Endorsed by several of the Grand Lodges of America as a recognized authority on Freemasonry, Mackey’s Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry is a massive volume that is a virtual treasure trove for students of knowledge. Sadly, what we learn about the Lodge itself from this book is quite disturbing.
In discussing the work of Lodge members in the world, Mackey describes what he calls “the Golden era of the Masonic Universal Masonic Republic.” He describes how some of the Lodges around the world had mistakenly believed that they had finally attained this goal.
What is the Golden era of the Masonic Universal Republic which Masons work towards?
“Along with this political activity Freemasonry employed against its adversaries, whether real or supposed, a system of spying and false accusation, the exposure of which brought about the downfall of the masonic cabinet of Combes. In truth all the “anti-clerical” Masonic reforms carried out in France since 1877, such as the secularization of education, measures against private Christian schools and charitable establishments, the suppression of the religious orders and the spoliation of the Church, professedly culminate in an anti-Christian and irreligious reorganization of human society, not only in France but throughout the world. Thus French Freemasonry, AS THE STANDARD-BEARER OF ALL FREEMASONRY, pretends to inaugurate the GOLDEN ERA OF THE MASONIC UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC, comprising in Masonic brotherhood all men and all nations. “The triumph of THE GALILEAN (Jesus, M.T.),” said the president of the Grand Orient, Senator Delpech, on 20 September, 1902, “has lasted twenty centuries. BUT NOW HE DIES IN TURN. The mysterious voice, announcing (to Julian the Apostate) the death of Pan, TODAY ANNOUNCES THE DEATH OF THE IMPOSTER GOD who promised an era of justice and peace to those who believe in him. The illusion has lasted a long time. The mendacious God is NOW DISAPPEARING in his turn; he PASSES AWAY to join in the dust of ages the divinities of India, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, who saw so many creatures prostrate before their altars. Bro. Masons, we rejoice to state that we are not without our share in this overthrow of the false prophets. THE ROMISH CHURCH, FOUNDED ON THE GALILEAN MYTH, BEGAN TO DECAY RAPIDLY FROM THE VERY DAY ON WHICH THE MASONIC ASSOCIATION WAS ESTABLISHED.” (Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry And It’s Kindred Sciences, 720-734 (Kindle Edition, emphasis added M.T.).
That’s right friends.
The Lodge works towards convincing the world to reject the Galilean, i.e., Jesus Christ. How do they propose to carry out this goal?
“The following are deemed the principal means: (1) TO DESTROY RADICALLY BY OPEN PERSECUTION OF THE CHURCH or by a hypocritical fraudulent system of separation between State and Church, ALL SOCIAL INFLUENCE OF THE CHURCH AND OF RELIGION, insidiously called “clericalism”, and, AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, TO DESTROY THE CHURCH, and all true, i.e., superhuman religion, which is more than a vague cult of fatherland and of humanity…” (Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia Of Freemasonry And It’s Kindred Sciences, 749-769 (Kindle Edition, emphasis added, M.T.))
The Lodge has been warring against Christianity for centuries, but Jesus and His church will triumph.
Professing followers of Jesus Christ should not be members of such an organization. Why not turn your life to the Son of God today (Acts 2:37-47)?
