Masons – Who do you serve?
Can a Christian serve two masters?
Jesus warned his disciples from calling anyone master – Matthew 23:8 (KJB) But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. The leader of the Masonic Lodge is not just called “Master” but “Worshipful Master!”
Jesus clearly stated, Matthew 4:10 (KJB) Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. The Bible explicitly instructs the sole worship of one God. Masons not only use a title reserved for Jesus, but they are also giving their “Masters” a title that means they are worthy of worship.
As Christians, we are instructed that we are to serve God and Him alone. Do Masons understand how serious this matter is? In acts we have an example of this when Cornelius fell at Peters’ feet. Acts 10:25-26 (KJB) And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. John in the midst of his vision fell at the feet of an angel, the angel gently warned him, Revelation 22:9 (KJB) Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
Christian Masons may say and even believe that they don’t serve the Worshipful Master in their lodge but that is simply an invention of their own minds.
A Master Mason makes a solemn oath on the Bible that he will “acknowledge and obey all due signs and summons sent to me from a Master Masons Lodge or given me by a brother of that Degree, if within the length of my cable-tow.” I wonder if the Master Mason takes the oath sincerely?
If he doesn’t he is not much of a Mason. If he does, however, then he must take it in its entirety seriously.
Romans 6:16 (KJB) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
If Freemasonry convinces you to break God’s commands, then you become the servant of another master, a very unpleasant one whose name is Lucifer.
An easy way to discriminate between Christianity and other religions is that all other masters demand you work for wages to apply them towards rewards in the afterlife. Jesus alone gives eternal life as a gift. If a Mason is earning something, it is not a gift.
Romans 4:4-5 (KJB) Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Ezekiel 18:4 (KJB) Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Masons serve a deity they call “The Great Architect of the Universe )or T.G.A.O.T.U.). But whom they really serve is a god called JAHBULON. More on this in our next post.
