The God Of The Bible Or The “God” Of The Masonic Lodge?

It is written:

“Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6)

While the Bible teaches that there are many “gods” and “lords” (1 Corinthians 8:5), there is only one true God (1 Corinthians 8:6). The gods of the pagans are fallen angels and demonic spirits, masquerading as Deity (Deuteronomy 32:8; Psalm 82).

However, the teaching of the Masonic Lodge is quite different from the teaching of God’s Word.

“Masons believe that Jews, Christians, Hindus, Muslims, and those of other faiths are all worshiping the same “all-seeing” God but are using different names. God is “the nameless one of a hundred names.”5 As Mackey put it, “God is equally present with the pious Hindoo [sic] in the temple, the Jew in the synagogue, the Mohammedan in the mosque, and the Christian in the church.” That said, however, Freemasonry as an institution refuses to affirm the Christian belief in God as a Trinity. Masons hold that, if Freemasonry were to affirm belief in the Trinity, this would amount to sponsoring the Christian religion, since Christianity is the only religion that holds to this doctrine. Rather, the Masonic policy is that “no phrase or terms should be used in a Masonic service that would arouse sectarian feelings or wound the religious sensibilities of any Freemason.”‘ One cannot help but see that, even though Freemasonry teaches that one is free to hold to one’s own view of God, Masonry does in fact teach a concept of God-that is, that all religions believe in the same God. So, despite the fact that Masonry denies teaching a doctrine of God, it does in fact teach such a doctrine. This is most evident in the Royal Arch degree of the York Rite, in which the Mason is told that the real name of God is jabulon. This is said to be a compound word derived from “Ja” (for Jehovah), joined with “Bel” or “Bul” (for Baal, the ancient Canaanite God), and “On” (for Osiris, the ancient Egyptian mystery god).’ We are told that “in this compound name an attempt is made to show by a coordination of divine names… the unity, identity and harmony of the Hebrew, Assyrian and Egyptian god-ideas, and the harmony of the Royal Arch religion with these ancient religions.”9”. (Ron Rhodes, The 10 Most Important Things You Can Say To A Mason, 486-496 (Kindle Edition); Eugene, Oregon; Harvest House Publishers)

The God of the Bible is not the god of the Masonic Lodge.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Amen.
