Freemasons are Most Religious
Very Reverent to Demons
“So Paul, standing in the center of Areopagus
[Mars Hill meeting place], said: Men of
Like, the Athenians, Freemasons are “most religious and very reverent to demons”. Anyone familiar with Freemasonry understands that Freemasons cover all bases when it comes to religion. Freemasons are not concerned with the religion or the religious creed of their members - the only requirement is that their members are religious, that is, they believe in a god or gods. Those beliefs do not exclude pagan deities or their objects of worship. In fact, the various degrees of Freemasonry involve rituals revolving around both mythology and their objects of worship.
Albert Pike, considered by many to be the father of American Freemasonry, wrote in his book, Morals and Dogma, that all religions are acceptable to Freemasons:
“The Holy Bible, Square, and Compasses, are not only styled the Great Lights in Masonry, but they are also technically called the Furniture of the Lodge; and, as you have seen, it is held that there is no Lodge without them. This has sometimes been made a pretext for excluding Jews from our Lodges, because they cannot regard the New Testament as a holy book. The Bible is an indispensable part of the furniture of a Christian Lodge, only because it is the sacred book of the Christian religion. The Hebrew Pentateuch in a Hebrew Lodge, and the Koran in a Mohammedan one, belong on the Altar; and one of these, and the Square and Compass, properly understood, are the Great Lights by which a Mason must walk and work.”
“The obligation of the candidate is always to be taken on the sacred book or books of his religion, that he may deem it more solemn and binding; and therefore it was that you were asked of what religion you were. We have no other concern with your religious creed.” (emphasis added) 
Interestingly, according to Freemasonry, the Square and Compass which are objects of worship as well as the Koran of a Mohammedan Masonic Lodge, carry the same weight of the Holy Bible in the Christian Masonic Lodge.
Again, according to Pike:
“Masonry, around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim, must needs leave it to each of its Initiates to look for the foundation of his faith and hope to the written scriptures of his own religion. … Views of religion and duty, wrought out by the meditations of the studious, confirmed by the allegiance of the good and wise, stamped as sterling by the response they find in every uncorrupted mind, commend themselves to Masons of every creed, and may well be accepted by all.” 
Another prominent Freemason, Brent Morris, wrote in his book, Cornerstones of Freedom:
“The Volume of Sacred Law is the Holy Bible in a lodge whose membership is made up of Christians and Jews. If a Muslim is present, for instance, the Lodge would see that the Koran was also on the Masonic altar. To a Mason, the Volume of Sacred Law symbolizes Deity’s revelation to man.” 
“When one considers the teachings of Freemasonry, it is not surprising Masons have been at the forefront of laying these cornerstones of freedom: [They teach] that men have all the same rights, … The origin of all rights and civil duties is in the people of the state, which is ruled according to the new principles of liberty. The State recognizes no reason why one religion ought to be preferred to another; all to be held in the same esteem.” 
As Christians we know that our cornerstone is Jesus Christ and that our unity with one another is founded in our belief that there is no other way to the Father than through his son, Jesus Christ. On the other hand, Freemasons base their unity on the belief in Freemasonry itself. In other words, Freemasonry is their religion. Therefore, if their unity is based on Freemasonry, then any differences in religion are no longer important.
Claudy, Executive Secretary of the Masonic Service Association of the

A Spirit of Superstition
Obviously, by all accounts Freemasons are “most religious”. However, being most religious or more religious than others is not meant to be a compliment. A demonic spirit of superstition is operating behind Freemasonry’s acceptance of all religions based on the deception that there is one common father and can be understood according to Acts 17:16-23.
“Now while Paul was awaiting them at
King James reads “I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious” (v 22). Superstitious means to be fearful, more religious than others and a supernatural spirit of a bad nature – a devil. In other words, a demonic spirit is behind superstition.
The word “superstitious” according to Strong’s Concordance (Greek 1174) is the compound of a derivative of the base of Greek 1169 and Greek 1142 and means to be “more religious than others – too superstitious. Superstitious according to Strong’s (Greek 1169) means “timid, i.e. by implication faithless: fearful, and superstitious (Greek 1142) is referring to a demon or supernatural spirit of a bad nature: a devil.

The spirit of superstition that was operating behind the Athenians is the same spirit that is operating behind Freemasonry. To be a Freemason one must worship a god, any god. It’s obvious from the writings of Albert Pike, as well as other Freemason historians, that Freemasons do not reject a belief in the ancient pagan gods. As a matter of fact, their writings and rituals reveal that they are very reverent of the pagan gods of mythology.

the ideology at the time
The belief that the gods had human representatives is not a new concept. According to Scripture there is nothing new under the sun. From the beginning Satan has tempted mankind with the desire to be like a god.
“Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people. Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.” (Acts 14:10-16, KJV, emphasis added)
According to Strong’s Concordance, (Greek 2203), “Jupiter” can also be understood as “Zeus”. The Amplified Bible (Acts 14:12) reads: “They called Barnabas Zeus, and they called Paul, because he led in the discourse, Hermes [god of speech].”

From his waist up Washington is pictured wearing a military uniform and from the waist down the robes of a pagan god. It is significant that his clothing is lavender and purple. When a General or a military equivalent wanted to be identified with Jupiter he would often wear purple.

The Deception of Freemasonry
George Washington did not go through the initiation of pagan
degrees and take part in the pagan Masonic rituals just to be
participating. By all accounts,
Due to the secrecy of
Freemasonry, we would not expect to know the whole truth behind
More to the point, George Washington, along with a select group considered to be the more knowledgeable, intellectual and accomplished Freemasons, more than likely had two different agendas – one of which was and is hidden even from other Freemasons. According to Albert Pike:
“[The Blue Degrees are but the outer court
or portico of the
Scripture is clear that we are not to learn the way of the heathen – Jeremiah 10. It is one thing to be aware that paganism exists – it is quite another to learn the ways of the heathen and practice them.
The words “Patriot” and “Patriotism” were meant to connect
Americans and their loyalty to both George Washington, father of men, and to the
god Jupiter, father of gods. However, Jupiter
was not the only god of which
For example, the below is a picture of George Washington’s own

want to point out that
Satan is the god of confusion: At times in other articles, it may seem contradictory when it is said that George Washington symbolized this or that; however, as a Freemason, what he believed in, who is was, who he was not and what he stood for was multifaceted. The same applies to all of Freemasonry.
Pike further states that Christianity is merely a mixture of paganism: “The God of nineteen-twentieths of the Christian world is only Bel, Moloch, Zeus, or at best Osiris, Mithras, or Adonai, under another name, worshipped with the old Pagan ceremonies and ritualistic formulas. It is the Statue of Olympian Jove worshipped as the Father, in the Christian Church that was a Pagan Temple; it is the Statue of Venus, become the Virgin Mary.” 
While the image of George Washington in the Apotheosis of Washington portrays him as Jupiter, that same image also portrays him as the Persian (Iranian) military deity known as Mithra. Whether George Washington is viewed as Jupiter, Mithra or both depends on who is viewing the mural and his or her knowledge of the various pagan deities.
people moved from one country to another they took their gods with them and
just renamed them according to the language of the country in which they were
now living. Alternatively, they
incorporated the attributes of their god with that of an already existing
god. For example, when the worship of
the Persian military deity, Mithra, became popular in
Furthermore, Jupiter and Zeus are also one and the same pagan deity – Jupiter is the Latin name for the Greek Zeus who was the national god of the Greeks. That’s why the King James translation refers to the pagan deity in Acts 14:12 as “Jupiter”, while other translations, such as the Amplified Bible and NIV, refer to the same pagan deity as “Zeus”. It may seem confusing – but then again, Satan is the god of confusion.
To combine Christianity with paganism is known as “syncretism”, meaning to combine two religions that oppose one another. A Scriptural example is found in 2 Kings 17:24-41 of people who attempted to worship the LORD alongside their pagan deities:
“And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which He wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the Lord your God ye shall fear; and He shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies. Howbeit they did not hearken, but they did after their former manner. So these nations feared the Lord, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.” (2 Kings 17:37-41, KJV)
The Wisdom of Freemasonry is described in James 3 as being from the devil
“Who is there among you who is wise and intelligent? Then let him by his noble living show forth his [good] works with the [unobtrusive] humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance of and false to the Truth. This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal). For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices.” (James 3:13-16, Amplified Bible, emphasis added)
Freemasons were Self Seeking
Because Washington and other Freemasons had “selfish ambition”, their wisdom was not the wisdom of the LORD. Their wisdom was “earthly”, “sensual”, “devilish” and was from Satan – the supreme being and architect behind Freemasonry.
Freemason’s Humility was False Humility

exalting one another – even to the point of deifying some of
Freemasons believe they have knowledge of things that non-Freemasons cannot attain. Their arrogant claim is nothing more than Satan’s so-called “deep secrets” referenced in Revelation 3:24.
their words, “Masonry became the
Freemasons equate knowledge with human cleverness and their ability to deceive. Yet, that is not the wisdom of the LORD. To worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob alongside other gods IS NOT WISDOM – certainly not WISDOM FROM ABOVE!
Know the Wiles of the Enemy:
“Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.” (Eph 6:11-12, Amplified Bible, emphasis added)
Self Deception: George Washington and others were under self deception. They were blinded by their own arrogance. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is revealing to whomever He chooses. Those things that George Washington and other Freemasons had deceived themselves into believing would remain hidden for all time – that we may stand up against all the strategies and the deceits of the devil!
The Dalai Lama
According to Scripture, there is nothing that is hidden that won’t be revealed and there is nothing new today that hasn’t been repeated before.
“Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. (Matt 10:26-27, KJV)
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (Eccl 1:9, KJV)
it is in the year 2007 –
As a Christian, President Bush is to be an Ambassador for Jesus Christ, yet Bush’s remarks made at the presentation clearly reveal that he is an Ambassador for all religions.
“O You poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over, unto whom – right before your very eyes – Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified?” (Gal 3:1, Amplified Bible)
While President Bush may be politically correct, he is misleading those of other faiths. Scripture reveals to us that the way and the only way to the Father is through his Son, Jesus Christ, and as a Christian we are to stand on that truth.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6, KJV)
The world’s way is toleration; however, Jesus is more interested that no one perishes. Am I intolerant? Yes, I am intolerant of anything other than the truth, only because I am more interested in someone’s salvation.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus commands us to be a “witness unto Him”, unto the uttermost part of the earth. The truth is that Jesus Christ is the way and the only way. If I truly believe that, then why would I not want others who are perishing to know the truth.
The following are excerpts from President Bush’s remarks at the joint Congressional ceremony honoring the Dalai Lama. They leave no doubt as to what he believes America’s Founding Fathers meant by religious freedom – and leave no doubt that President Bush is “Most Religious” (emphasis added is mine).
“Madam Speaker; … members of the congressional
delegation, … and Your Holiness [the Dalai Lama]. Over the years, Congress has conferred the
Gold Medal on many great figures in history – usually at a time when their
struggles were over and won. Today
Congress has chosen to do something different.
It has conferred this honor on a figure whose work continues – and whose
outcome remains uncertain. In so doing,
Obviously, President Bush is “Most Religious”. While that may seem like a compliment to some, it is not meant to be a compliment at all. Further, he is most reverent of demons as well.
Scripture clearly rejects the ideology of either incarnation or reincarnation, yet the followers of Dalai Lama believe him to be an “incarnation” of the original Dalai Lama who was the incarnation of a heavenly being. This spiritual deity supposedly has been incarnate through all the other Dalai Lamas and will be incarnate in a baby who will be born on the 49th day after the present Dalai Lama, who received the Congressional Gold Medal, passes away.
We know from Scripture that demons can indwell human beings, and when they do, they will stay unless they are cast out. In other words, what they believe to be the continuing incarnation of a spiritual or heavenly being through the birth of a child when a Dalai Lama passes away is nothing more than a demonic spirit – known as a familiar spirit – that leaves the body of the Dalai Lama at his death and finds a child born on the 49th day after his death to indwell.
mentioned earlier in this section, the pagan belief that the gods had human
representatives on this earth, is not a new concept (Acts 14:10-16). Also mentioned earlier, George Washington was
portrayed as the earthly representative of a deity. Ironically, the Dalai Lama received the Congressional
Gold Medal underneath the very mural portraying George Washington as a pagan
deity. Given these facts, we should not
be surprised that
There truly is nothing new under the sun – what has been will be again.
