Hidden Agendas
1.Who was the author of Morals and Dogma? ANSWER: Albert Pike (1809-1891) is easily the preeminent figure in American Freemasonry. His many titles included Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of the Thirty-Third Degree (Mother Council of the World) and Supreme Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry. Scholar, student of ancient languages and occult philosopher, he completely rewrote the degrees of the Scottish Rite into their present form. This work is explained in his book Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. His position in Masonry was, and is today, unparalleled, not only in the United States, but throughout the world. 2. According to Morals & Dogma, what do all Secret Orders hold in common? ANSWER: “The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations, had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters, which was Johannism; the other public, which was the Roman Catholic.” (Morals & Dogma, 2

pg. 870) NOTE: It’s quite straight forward. So there is a doctrine that is being taught to the masses, and the masses are the uninitiated. Now, if the outer shell, the teaching of the Templars to the people, was Catholicism; they also of course adopted a very pious garb, and pretended this was the crux of their religion. But on the inside they had another religion, and the order that they ascribed to is Johannism. Now we have many orders of St. John today, many orders; well just think about some of the large organizations, we have Cathedrals to St. John, where some very strange things happen, as we see as we go along over time. We have St. John’s ambulance for example, you know, we could go on and on and on, well I don’t want to go into too much detail here; all of these are organizations which are philanthropic, seem to be doing a very good thing. They run many many hospitals, they give huge sums of money to the poor and to the, well whatever, to children’s hospitals, to the crippled people in the world, and being so philanthropic, it is very hard to pin something negative to organizations that appear to do so much good. And this is actually the best cloak into which to clothe something else that should not be discovered. So whenever you see Johannism, supposedly of course from John the Baptist; then eye it with suspicion. So all Secret Orders have two doctrines: One for those who are on the outside of the organization, and one for the insiders. This will become more important as we go in this particular study. 3.According to Freemasonry, where are the impenetrable enigmas discovered? ANSWER: “The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was 3

concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics: It was guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry.” (Morals & Dogma pg. 839) NOTE: So once again, according to Morals & Dogma, by Albert Pike, Freemasonry believes, the mystery of the ancient Magi and the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries are present and known to the highest levels of Freemasonry. None of the lower levels know anything about this, they come into the lodge and they think it is a Christian society; well at least with Christian flavor, if then a Christian lodge; and that then there are a brotherhood who are doing good unto others. 4.Is Freemasonry a religion? ANSWER: “Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion: And its teachings are instructions in religion… This is the true religion revealed to the ancient patriarchs; which Masonry has taught for many centuries, and which it will continue to teach as long as time endures.” (Morals & Dogma pg. 213-214) NOTE: According to Morals & Dogma, Freemasonry is a religion. It is interesting that recently there has been a plethora of documentaries on television praising Freemasonry as an organization merely and not a religion. But, the most important book in Freemasonry, by the most influential Freemason says quite emphatically that Freemasonry is a religion. 4

5.Is Freemasonry a Christian Organization? ANSWER: “If Freemasonry were simply a Christian institution, the Jew and the Moslem, the Brahman and Buddhist, could not conscientiously partake of its illumination.” (Albert Mackey, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, pg. 182, 33rd Degree Mason) “Freemasonry is not Christian, nor a substitute for it.” (C.F. Mcquaig, My Masonic Friend, pg. 1) NOTE: So, Freemasonry is not a Christian Organization. 6.What are some basic characteristics of a true mason? ANSWER: “The true Mason is not [therefore] not creedbound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha, or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in the temple, mosque or cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth.” (Manly Palmer Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, pg. 65) NOTE: So, it is quite obvious that the true mason does not hold Jesus in high esteem, because the ‘name means little.’ Peter said there is one name in which people are to be saved and that is Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12) 7.I am a bit confused. If Freemasonry is not Christian, then why is the Bible on the Alter? 5

ANSWER: “Masonry has nothing to do with the Bible; it is not founded upon the Bible, for if it were, it would not be Masonry, it would be something else.” (The Digest of Masonic Law, p. 207-209) 8.What about God and Jesus Christ? ANSWER: “Humanity, ‘in-toto’, then, is the only personal God.” (J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry, pg. 136, 32nd Degree) NOTE: Here again we are talking about high masons revealing their information. 9.According to Freemasonry, where does salvation and redemption come from? ANSWER: “Masonry teaches that redemption and salvation are both the power and the responsibility of the individual Mason. Saviors like Hiram Abiff, can and do show the way, but men must always follow and demonstrate, each for himself, his power to save himself, to build his own spiritual fabric in his own time and way. Every man in essence is his own savior and redeemer; for if he does not save himself, he will not be saved.” (Lynn Perkins, The Meaning of Masonry, pg. 95) NOTE: Now it’s getting a little bit clearer, do we need Jesus Christ in all of this? Not really. 10.What is the religion of Freemasonry? ANSEWR: “The Masonic legend stands by itself, unsupported by history or other than its own traditions; yet we readily


recognize in Hiram Abiff the Osiris of the Egyptians, the Mithras of the Persians, the Bacchus of the Greeks, the Dionysius of the fraternity of the Artificers, and the Atys of the Phrygians, whose passion, death and resurrection were celebrated by these people respectively.” (A.T.C. Pierson, The Traditions, Origin and early history of Freemasonry, pg. 240) NOTE: So in other words the ancient religion which counterfeited the religion of salvation in Jesus Christ is the religion of Masonry; so it’s the old pagan religion which has another deity. 11.What is the importance of all the symbolism that Masonry often uses? ANSWER: “Thus, symbols came to have two meanings, the esoteric and the exoteric. The esoteric meaning was the true or original meaning, understood by only a few and closely guarded by them. The exoteric meaning was the invented, or modified, explanation intended for the many. The sacred mysteries, which are often mentioned in connection with many ancient religions and which were closely guarded by the initiate, concerned esoteric meanings in the religions of previous times. These sacred mysteries very often were merely continuations of the simpler forms of early sex worship carried on by a select few.” (Charles G. Berger, Our Phallic Heritage, pg. 48.) NOTE: So once again we see that there are two meanings. One for the insiders, and one for those who are not members. So, if a 33rd degree Freemason is speaking during a documentary and he or she is explaining the meaning of the different symbols, you will not be hearing the esoteric (the true meaning) definition of the symbol,


but you will only hear of the exoteric (invented, modified or false) meaning. 12.What about the lower level Freemasons, are they themselves being deceived on what the symbols represent? ANSWER: “The Blue Degrees are but the outer court of portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry. The whole body of the Royal and Sacerdotal Art was hidden so carefully, centuries since, in the High Degrees…” (Morals & Dogma, pg. 819) “Masonry, like all the religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; To conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it. So masonry jealously conceals its secrets, and intentionally leads conceited interpreters astray.” (Morals and Dogma, p. 104, 105) NOTE: This is very sad indeed, that even the members of Freemasonry are being deceived by those who are of the very highest degree. It a tragic case of deception, and I believe that it is high time for many sincere Freemasons to know that they are being intentionally misled by what this religion actually believes. 8

13.Who does the Serpent represent, according to the 33rd degree freemason? ANSWER: “The serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation of the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil.” (Manly Palmer Hall, 33rd Degree Freemason, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, the Philosophical Research Society Press, pg. Lxxxviii) NOTE: The serpent is the savior according to Freemasonry. Not the Serpent in the wilderness that Moses lifted up, but the serpent in the Garden of Eden, which gave the knowledge of good and evil. 14.What is the oath that a 33rd degree freemason makes? ANSWER: ““May this wine I now drink become a deadly poison to me, as the Hemlock juice drunk by Socrates, should I ever knowingly or willfully violate the same.” A member dressed as a skeleton places his arms around the candidate who then states: “And may these cold arms forever encircle me should I ever knowingly or willfully violate the same.” 15.Is it important for Freemasons to believe that Jesus was the Christ? ANSWER: “It is far more important that men should strive to become Christs than that they should believe that Jesus was Christ.” (J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry, Illinois; Indo-American 9

Book Co., 1913, Sixth Edition, pg. 138) 16.What is man (humanity) according to Freemasonry? ANSWER: “MAN IS GOD IN THE MAKING…” (Manley Palmer Hall, 33rd Degree Freemason, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, pg. 92) “The perfect man is Christ: and Christ is God. This is the birth-right and destiny of every human soul.” (J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry, pg. 62, 86) NOTE: Freemasons think it is far more important that we should become Christs, and they also teach that we are God in the making. You will be stunned a little later in this series when you hear very famous “protestant” Preachers teaching the very same thing. 17.Who is the God of Masonry? ANSWER: “What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil. The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the paraclete [an advocate] it is the Holy Spirit, where the physical Lucifer is the great angel of universal magnetism.” (Eliphas Levi, The Mysteries of Magic, A Digest of the Writings of Eliphas Levi) “Lucifer represents.. Life.. Thought.. Progress.. Civilizations.. Liberty.. Independence.. Lucifer is the Logos .. the Serpent, the Savior.” Secret Doctrine by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, pages 171, 225, 255 (Volume II) 10 “It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.”

Pages, 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533 (VI) “Lucifer is the Light Bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!” (Morals & Dogma, pg. 321) NOTE: So who is the god of Freemasonry? Lucifer. 18.Who is allowed to know what being is worshipped in Freemasonry? ANSWER: “That which we must say to a crowd is – We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees – The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine…” (Instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the World, July 14, 1889, Recorded by A.C. De La Rive in La Femme et L`Enfant dans la Franc Maconnerie Universelle, pg. 588) NOTE: So, again the lower level initiates know nothing about who the god of Freemasonry is. But, once you attain to the 33rd degree you will know who you worship. How can we be certain about this? Because the 33rd degree Freemason is also called The Sovereign Grand Inspector General, now that we have this established, did you know that many of the mighty people of this earth are 33rd degree Freemasons. The leading politicians, even some of the greatest preachers of this world are 33rd degree Freemasons. And if they are 33rd degree Freemasons, then they know that Lucifer is their God, and not Jesus Christ.


19.What is a Christian’s duty when it comes to societies like this? Ephesians 5:8-14, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible.” (NIV) NOTE: It is tragic to know that many of our respected leaders are involved in this society at the highest levels. But, it is also a joyful thing to know that this type of activity exists. Why? Because it is a clear indication that Jesus Christ is soon to come. How soon? The Bible does not say. But, we do know it cannot be long before Jesus comes to put an end to the wickedness on this planet, and rescues His faithful ones living in such a cesspool of evil. May God help you dear reader make a resolute commitment to Him. MY DECISION FOR JESUS… I see that this world is completely deceived. I too was in darkness about these issues, but now I see that there is a supernatural battle being waged for the life of every person on this planet. Some have already made their decision to follow Lucifer (Satan) in this last conflict. But, I choose to follow the victor in this battle, and not only just the victor, but the one who spilt his own blood for me because of His great love. Is it your desire to surrender your life to Jesus Christ of Nazareth? Yes or No 12
