Questions and Answers About Masonry (Freemasonry), Catholicism, and Mystery Religion

Q: What is Freemasonry?

A:

Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree freemason, writes:

" Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity -- an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect ... it is necessary to establish the existence of these two separate and yet interdependent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of 'free and accepted' men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most August [defined as 'of majestic dignity, grandeur'] fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcannum arcandrum [defined as 'a secret, a mystery']." [Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, p. 433]

Albert Mackey, 33rd Degree Mason writes this in his "Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry", 1873:

"Visible Masonry: In a circular published March 18, 1775, by the Grand Orient of France, reference is made to two divisions of the Order, namely, Visible and Invisible Masonry ... by 'Invisible Masonry' they denoted that body of intelligent and virtuous Masons who, irrespective of any connection with dogmatic authorities, constituted a 'Mysterious and Invisible Society of the True Sons of Light', who, scattered over the two hemisphere, were engaged, with one heart and soul in doing everything for the glory of the Great Architect and for the good of their fellow-men."

Q: What is the All-Seeing-Eye?

A:


"This ubiquitous image is most often referred to as the all-seeing eye or 'eye of providence.' The eye, usually depicted in the sky looking out upon the earth, is an ancient symbol of the sun, and historically has been used as a symbol of omniscience. The idea of the solar eye comes to us from the Egyptians, who equated the eye with the deity Osiris; the human eye in its ability to perceive light was viewed as a miniature sun.” (From “All Seeing Eye” definition at SymbolDicionary.net) (Emphasis Added)

"The eye plays a most important part in occult symbolism and probably owes its origin in western magical designs to the Eye of Horus, which was one of the most frequently used of Egyptian magical symbols.” (Fredrick Goodman, Magical Symbols p. 101, 1989) (Emphasis Added)

Alice Bailey, an occultist and author of 24 books wrote:

"The Masonic Movement ... is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries, and the seat of initiation.  ... The methods of Deity are demonstrated in its Temples, and under the All-seeing Eye the work can go forward.  It [Masonry] is a far more occult organisation than can be realized, and it is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists." (Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, p. 511) (Emphasis Added)

Q: What is the Phoenix?

A:

 "The Phoenix, of Bunnu is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt… This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who… will one day rise.... This [idea] also relates to the raising of Hiram Abiff, the Masonic [false] ‘Christ’.” (William Schnoebelen, Satan’s Door Revisited, p. 4)(Emphasis added)

Manly P. Hall writes:



"These were the immortals to whom the term ‘phoenix’ was applied, and their symbol was the mysterious two-headed bird, now called an eagle, a familiar and little understood Masonic emblem.” (Manly P. Hall, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 108)(Emphasis added)

Q: Is Masonry a Mystery Religion?

A:

Albert Pike, a 33rd degree mason, wrote:



"Masonry, successor of the mysteries, still follows the ancient manner of teaching. Her ceremonies are like the ancient mystic shows,..." (Albert Pike. Morals and Dogma. pg. 22) (Emphasis added)

There you have it. Pike tells us that Masonry is a mystery religion.

Pike states in Morals and Dogma (pg. 23) that:

"After leaving Egypt, the mysteries were modified by the habits of the different nations among whom they were introduced, and especially by the religious systems of the countries into which they were transplanted." (Emphasis added)

Pike has informed us that ancient Egyptian religion is part of the ancient mystery religions and that these were taken to many countries.

He states further:

"To maintain the established government, laws, and religion, was the obligation of the initiate [of the Mystery religion or Masonry] everywhere; and everywhere they were the heritage of the priests [of the mysteries], who were nowhere willing to make the common people co-proprietors with themselves of philosophical [beliefs]." (Albert Pike. Morals and Dogma. pg. 23) (Emphasis added)

In order for mystery religions to have power, the common people could not be told everything that the priests (or high officials) knew. This is the same for the Catholic Church, which has borrowed nearly everything from the ancient mystery religions Albert Pike speaks of.

The Roman Catholic Church has pagan symbols from ancient Mystery religions (including Masonry).

Q: Is the Catholic Mass Pagan?

A:  

Historian Alexander Hislop writes this in his book, The Two Babylons: "The Paeonians of Thrace were sun-worshippers; and in their worship they adored an image of the sun in the form of a disk at the top of a long pole." [Pg. 135].

That was pagan worship in which a pole holding an image to represent the sun sat before an altar to Baal (Hislop).

Hislop writes further (Emphasis added):

"And here, in a so-called Christian Church, a brilliant plate of silver, "in the form of a SUN," is so placed on the altar, that every one who adores at that altar must bow down in lowly reverence before that image of the "Sun."  Whence, I ask, could that have come, but from the ancient sun-worship, or the worship of Baal? And when the wafer is so placed that the silver "SUN" is fronting the "round" wafer, whose "roundness" is so important an element in the Romish Mystery, what can be the meaning of it, but just to show to those who have eyes to see, that the "Wafer" itself is only another symbol of Baal, or the Sun." (Hislop). (The Two Babylons)(The Sacrifice of the Mass. Pg. 135).

The official Catholic doctrine declares that the round wafer, "the eucharist", is: "the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained." [sic] (Article 1374)

This is blasphemy to say that a wafer is Jesus Christ in the form of a wafer. This wafer-worship is really the same as what the ancient pagans did.

The first and second of The Ten Commandments forbids this.

Exodus 20:1-5 says (Emphasis added) :

"And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;"

(Notice the sun-symbol on this image of the "queen of heaven"?
This is sun-worship (and idolatry) and is blasphemy against the Creator God.
 He is not a "she."  This woman is none other than Semiramis,
 the mother of Nimrod, who set up Baal worship. She proclaimed herself
god and her son, Tammuz, a god to be worshiped.)
But, Catholics are to bow before the "host", or wafer-god.

Furthermore, Jesus Christ is not ever incarnated in a wafer. This is the teaching of Baal worship. Catholics believe that Jesus Christ is offered as a sacrifice every time they attend the mass.

What does the Bible say?

Romans 6:9-10 says (Emphasis added):

9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

_____________________________

Also, the wafer that Catholics eat is identical to that ate by ancient pagans. It was a small, round wafer.

Furthermore, Jesus Christ is not ever incarnated in a wafer. This is the teaching of Baal worship.

Ancient pagans also ate a small, round wafer.

Hislop writes: ' "The thin, round cake," says Wilkinson, "occurs on all altars." Almost every jot or tittle in the Egyptian worship had a symbolical meaning. The round disk, so frequent in the sacred emblems of Egypt, symbolised the sun. ' (The Two Babylons, pg. 134).

Altars to Baal can be found with sun-disc images in the Middle East.

Q: Are the Catholic Religious Processions Pagan?
A: 

Hislop quotes from the London Times:

‘“The historic idea [of religious processions],” says that journal, “is simple enough, and as old as old can be. We have it in Homer--the procession of Hecuba and the ladies of Troy to the shrine of Minerva, in the Acropolis of that city." It was a time of terror and dismay in Troy, when Diomede, with resistless might, was driving everything before him, and the overthrow of the proud city seemed at hand. To avert the apparently inevitable doom, the Trojan Queen was divinely directed.
 “To lead the assembled train Of Troy's chief matron's to Minerva's fane.”’ (Hislop. The Two Babylons. pg. 143.) (Emphasis added)

Pagan processions carrying idols on their shoulders can also be found in ancient Nineveh and ancient Egypt.

Hislop writes:

‘In the sculptures of Nineveh these processions of idols, borne on men's shoulders, are forcibly represented, and form at once a striking illustration of the prophetic language, and of the real origin of the Popish processions. In Egypt, the same practice was observed. In "the procession of shrines," says Wilkinson, "it was usual to carry the statue of the principal deity, in whose honour the procession took place, together with that of the king, and the figures of his ancestors, borne in the same manner, on men's shoulders."’ (Hislop. The Two Babylons. pg. 144.) (Emphasis added)

Catholics bring forth images of Mary and “saints” and carry them in religious processions exactly as the ancient pagans did.

The Bible, God’s written word says this about the worship of idols:

Isaiah 46:6-7 (Emphasis added)
6 They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.
7 They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

God, in The Ten Commandments, says this:

Exodus 20:1-5 (Emphasis added)
20 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

God said this in Revelation: 

Revelation 21:8 (Emphasis added)

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The worship of idols includes anything that keeps you from putting God first in your life.

Q: Is the Worship of Mary (“the queen of heaven”) really the worship of Isis (Ishtar)?

A: 

This article may interest you. I put it up on Scribd.com.

 MYSTERY BABYLON – THE GREAT HARLOT (What is Mystery Babylon?) (ILLUMINATI / Masonic Symbols in Catholic Churches)
_____________________________________________

"One of Isis' many epithets is Theotokos or Mother of God (Horus)' which is one of the most popular of titles attributed to Mary." ["The Virgin Mary - Isis of the Third Millennium?", Aurilus Creative Paganism] (Bold added)


So, Isis is called the “Mother of God.” And, Mary is also called “the Mother of God” by the Catholics.

"The Virgin Mary is acknowledged and honored as being truly the Mother of God ... Mart, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church [sic]." ["Catechism of the Catholic Church", Liguori Publications, Imprimi Potest, + Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Interdicasterial Commission for the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 963, p. 251]. (Emphasis and Italics added)

Thus, Mary and Isis are identical.

"Mary is also known as Stella Maris or 'Star of the Sea' while Isis was given a similar title of Pelagia meaning 'of the ocean'." [Aurilus, Ibid]


Mary is Isis. Isis is the mother of Horus. Horus is the sun god whose eye appears above the unfinished pyramid on the back of the dollar bill. The Masons worship this sun god (a.k.a. Baal) and so do the Illuminati. Images of the all seeing eye can be seen everywhere: in advertisements, in company logos, in Catholic Churches, in ancient Egypt, in movies, music videos, video games, government logos, and in mainstream media. Our world is really under the control of men and women who worship Baal (Horus, Tammuz, Nimrod).
It was said of Baal that he was called the “savior.” But, the Bible says that Jesus Christ is the only way (1 Timothy 2:5) and that worship of the “queen of heaven” is rebellion against God (Judges 2:11-13). God has no mother. John chapter 1 says that Jesus Christ (the Word) was made flesh and that Jesus Christ (the Word) created all things (John 1:3). The first and second commandments of the Ten Commandments forbid the worship of other gods and the worship of idols (CLICK to see Exodus 20:1-6).

1 Timothy 2:5 (Emphasis added) (Note: Jesus Christ is both God and man. Find out more.)

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Romans 8:34 (Emphasis added)

34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.


Judges 2:11-13 (Emphasis added) (Baal and Ashtaroth were worshipped by rebellious Israel)

11 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim:
12 And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger.
13 And they forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.


The Bible says in Jeremiah 44 (Click to read Jer. 44) that the Israelites of ancient Judah worshipped “the queen of heaven.” Catholics do the same. Baal and Ashtaroth are none other than the Ishtar and Tammuz of Babylon.

Jeremiah 44:17 (Emphasis added) (They burned incense to “the queen of heaven.” Catholics do the same.)

17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

God created man. Jesus Christ (the Word) created Mary. She was not God’s mother.

John 1:1-5 (Emphasis added)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

The TRUTH in Scripture


John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

1 Timothy 2:5 

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
