|Can masonry lead a soul
‘into the pool of
eternal fire which is hell’?
“The task of the masonic lodges is that of working today, with great astuteness,
to bring humanity everywhere to disdain the Holy Law of God, to work in open opposition to the 10 Commandments, and to take away the worship due to God
alone in order to offer it to certain false idols which become extolled and adored
by an ever-increasing number of people: reason, flesh, money, discord,
domination, violence, pleasure. Thus souls are precipitated into the dark
slavery of evil, of vice and of sin and, at the moment of death and of the
Judgment of God, into the pool of eternal fire which is hell.”
|The proud symbol of masonry with the square and compass enfolding the ‘G.’ Masons tell the ‘profane,’ those outside the order, that the G stands for God when, in reality, it stands for gnosis or ‘hidden knowledge.’|

And so we began our investigation of freemasonry.
We did not want to hear what the Church had to say about it because of the obvious reason of the claim freemasonry itself makes that prejudicial motives are behind the condemnations of more than a dozen popes!
The best way, we felt, was to examine the literature freemasons themselves provide about their beliefs.
Henry C. Clausen was the “sovereign grand commander” of freemasonry when he published his “commentaries” on Albert Pike’s Morals and Dogma. Pike’s book is 862 pages of nonsense dedicated to the “holy empire of the masonic brotherhood” and is considered the “bible” of the order.
We felt as not only the recognized “head” of this occult organization, but also as the “elusive” 33-degree mason, Clausen could be counted on to explain or expose — depending on one’s viewpoint — what the “supreme council” of the “ancient and accepted scottish rite of freemasonry” espouses.
We were right.
Published in 1974, one cannot claim the book is “too old” to have meaning today or that it is not “current” in its thinking.
Interestingly, if one should ever ask a freemason to pray “Hail Mary” (Ave Maria), the response would be in the negative.
But Clausen’s book begins with “salve frater,” Latin for “hail, holy brother” and an obvious takeoff on Salve Regina, Hail Holy Queen!
Clausen goes through the various degrees one must attain to get to his level and just a cursory view leaves one feeling uncomfortable regarding grown men believing in these titles (and then imagining them with their “aprons” on reciting blood-curling oaths)! In fact, we ask our readers to pick out the titles they believe could possibly be offensive to our Lord and Savior:
* “Elu of the Twelve” (11th degree)
* “Prince of Jerusalem” (16th degree)
* “Pontiff” (19th degree)
* “Chief of the Tabernacle” (23rd degree)
* “Knight of the Brazen Serpent” (25th degree)
* “Prince of Mercy” (26th degree)
* “Knight of the Sun” (28th degree)
* “Master of the Royal Secret” (32nd degree).
In the “prince of mercy” degree, Clausen states that “it is beyond our purpose to decide among conflicting claims that beset the followers of Moses, Confucius, Zoroaster, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, and others.”
“ … to take away the worship due to God alone.”
Isn’t that the quote we took from the Mother of God directly?
Isn’t that exactly what freemasonry is doing to our Lord when they put His Name — the Savior of the world — on par with these false religions and deities and relegate them to “conflicting claims”?!
Who is the god of confusion?
And Clausen — lauding the degrees of freemasonry — does not stop there. After discussing the “liberalization of the restrictive provision of canonical laws” that Clausen claims are “only the expression of personal opinions,” he relates the address of John Cardinal Willebrands, secretariat for Christian Unity addressing the 50th anniversary of the order of demolay! A Vatican representative under Pope Paul VI giving credence to an order named after a knight who was burnt at the stake for worshipping baphomet!
What does Clausen have to tell us about the knight Jacques de Molay, the last “grandmaster” of the Knights Templar? In this “mandatory” 30th degree, he depicts the hero of freemasonry at the stake with a “priest menacing the condemned knight with a Crucifix.” (In this quote, we have reversed Clausen’s letters since he used an upper-case K for “knight” and lower-case C for “Crucifix”! If this doesn’t show the priorities of freemasonry, nothing will!)
While the “ecumenical” “charismatics” of the Vatican are willing to sacrifice dogma for the sake of freemasonry’s “blessing,” Clausen shows in his book how little the organization thinks of the Judgment of God. For it is not the Just Judge depicted at the end of one’s life in the 31st degree, but a different “god”!
Clausen writes that this degree is “based partly upon the Book of the Dead.”
We don’t know about you, but we always base our religious beliefs on the “Book of the Dead”! (Yes, Virginia, we are being facetious! Who needs the Bible when you can read the “Book of the Dead”?!)
Clausen states that “the legend (which he uses an upper-case L for!) of the Egyptian god osiris told of the trial and final judgment in a supreme tribunal of every soul after death. The final judges were osiris, his wife isis … and the master of ceremonies was the jackal-headed horus, who conducted the soul during and after the trial.”
What happened to Jesus and His Judgment as the Just Judge?!
What happened to Mary and Her ability to intercede for us as the Queen of Mercy?!
Is it no wonder the Lord would find the masonic degrees offensive and misleading to those who accept them. They are nothing more than a rehash of the pagan concepts Jesus defeated when He converted Constantine the Great and brought the Roman empire into His Universal Kingdom!
The final commentary on the degrees developed by the “universal pontiff” of freemasonry, Albert Pike, ends with Clausen discussing the “kabalah,” as he spells it (there are numerous variations). But no matter how one may spell it, the kabalah is an occult version of the Old Covenant, distorting the Truth of the Scriptures and making believers in it think they have attained the “gnosis,” or “hidden knowledge” of Moses! (And do not think this is a “dead” subject as many of today’s “Hollywood stars” are involved in it; such as Madonna, Streisand and other prominent names!)
Unfortunately, there is more. And it does not come from Clausen. It comes from the “big cheese” — Albert Pike himself.
The man to whom Congress, at the turn of the 20th Century, dedicated a statue to on federal land with taxpayers’ money. This despite the fact that Pike’s name had already come before Congress after the Civil War — but not for laudatory action; but condemnation. For it was Pike, the mastermind behind the Ku Klux Klan, who, as a Confederate general, instructed his Indian soldiers to skin Union captives alive! (For those who may not have heard this before, Pike was granted a “pardon” for this evil by then-president Andrew Johnson, also a freemason, who, according to eyewitnesses in the meeting between Pike and Johnson, was “subservient” to the head of masonry!)
Having written his life’s work, Morals and Dogma (we thought dogmas were reserved by God to the Universal Church!) and, now get this, we are not making this line up, “entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1871, by Albert Pike in the office of the librarian of Congress,” the “universal pontiff” of masonry espouses on the various degrees. Clausen, more than 100 years later, was merely just commenting on Pike’s work.
In Pike’s “tome,” we discover that the “kabala consecrates the alliance of the universal reason and divine word.” That the kabala “gives to masonry secrets and symbols,” as well as a “perfect, unique theology.” This contains the “doctrines of Persians, gnostics and the zend avesta,” including the “active realization of magic works,” which were “doctrines known to the Templars.”
In Pike’s warped world, we find that the “true name of satan, the kabalists say, is that of … .” We dare not repeat it, for it is the Sacred Name of God the Hebrews originally received from the Lord! A Name so sacred they dared not write the vowels!
Indeed, Pike tells us that satan is “not a person, but a force, created for good … the instrument of liberty or free will”! (Hmm, any connection to America’s love for the masonic madonna and her torch of liberty here?!)
It is not surprising then when he states that “serpents and dragons have something divine in their nature,” and a serpent could be “a good spirit.”
Shades of Harry Potter!
We have shown the serpent devouring its own tail, and Pike tells us that this is “a symbol of the life principle.”
If that is not enough confusion of Truth, Pike gives us this blasphemous version of our Lord’s Incarnation by repeating the beliefs of one Simon Magus (remember his condemnation in the Acts of the Apostles 8:18-23?):
“Compelled, despite himself, by his Mother, Ialdaboath caused the man Jesus to be born of a Virgin, and the Celestial Saviour, uniting with his Sister, Wisdom, descended through the regions of the seven angels, appeared in each under the form of its chief, concealed his own, and entered with his sister into the man Jesus at the baptism in Jordan. Ialdaboath, finding that Jesus was destroying his empire and abolishing his worship, caused the Jews to hate and crucify Him; before which happened, Christos and Wisdom had ascended to the celestial regions. They restored Jesus to life …in which he remaining 18 months on earth, receiving from Wisdom, the perfect knowledge (gnosis), communicated it to a small number of his apostles … .”
You get the idea of what’s in this blasphemous book!
The above quote comes from Pike’s explanation of the “prince of mercy” degree, which ends with this thought: “behold the true masonic trinity: the Universal Soul; the Thought in the Soul, [and] the Word, or Thought expressed; the Three in One … . Here masonry pauses and leaves its initiates to carry out and develop these great Truths ….”
We have a comment on that belief, but we reserve it to not use language that would offend anyone.
There is a reason Pike promotes all this nonsense.
It comes from the simple fact that he truly does not believe.
He does not believe what every true Christian believes.
He does not believe in the Most Holy Trinity.
He does not believe in Jesus as True God and True Man.
He does not believe in Mary as the Mediatrix.
There is another reason for all this.
The evidence comes from a letter Pike wrote.
A letter that strips away what this insane individual used to conceal his beliefs in the masonic degrees which, as he states, “intentionally mislead by false interpretations. It is not intended that [the initiate] should understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them” for “masonry is the veritable sphinx, buried to the head in the sands … .”
On July 14, 1884, Pike wrote to the 23 councils of the world that the “masonic religion [isn’t it amazing that today masons still deny in their duplicity that their beliefs are NOT a religion?] should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the luciferian doctrine. If lucifer [and, yes, unlike Pike, we are purposely lower casing his name!] were not god, would Adonay [or as we call Him, Jesus!] whose deeds prove his cruelty … and hatred of man, barbarism, and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests calumniate him? Yes, lucifer is god, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. … Thus the doctrine of satanism is heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but lucifer, god of light and god of good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God [forgive us Lord as we repeat for those to comprehend this incredible spiritual battle the words of the blasphemer Pike] of darkness and evil.”
If there is any further doubt as to why the Lord would be displeased by those who follow masonry, let that person disprove these quotes.
And let them renounce masonry, satanism, lucifer, and any other occultism. And let them do it publicly.
If there is any doubt that Pike is just an anomaly in masonry, here are the words of another “revered’ philosopher of this cult, one Manly P. Hall, who states that when an initiate really learns the occult power of the fraternity:
“… he has learned the mystery of his craft. The seething energies of lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward or upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy.”
While no one but God Himself knows how many in the upper degrees of masonry really believe or follow this blasphemy, no one can dispute the words Pike recorded himself in his book and the commentaries by others that give reference and homage to pagan and false deities. Homage to — whether those in the lower degrees of freemasonry know it, understand it, or not — the fallen angel, lucifer, himself!
Isn’t that the very complaint the Mother of Jesus — and the Seat of Wisdom — spoke of to Father Gobbi in her messages? “ ... to offer it [our worship or homage] to certain false idols ... .”
We have never met Father Gobbi and he could never know that we would read his messages and then explore masonry for ourselves to see if there was any Truth to what the Virgin said to him.
There is no doubt in our minds.
And we bet our bottom spiritual dollar that Father Gobbi, as a good priest, has never read Morals and Dogma, nor studied freemasonry as in-depth as we have (believe us, for the sake of brevity, we have barely scratched the masonic surface here)! But he has, as Mary’s messenger, understood and spread the warning against it.
In this warning, the works of masonry’s “universal pontiff” — without even Mary or Father Gobbi raising a red flag — speak for themselves, as well as the writings of one of the cult’s former “sovereign grand commanders.” On top of it, one need only then review the images Hall drew illustrating his books on masonry to comprehend their demonic nature.
We will not follow masonry.
We plead with anyone who does: get out now and renounce what you have been involved in!
For as the Virgin Herself warns, the path of masonry — and what it is doing to our society and nation at large — can lead a soul “into the pool of eternal fire which is hell.”
In this regard, do not forget also Mary’s message that “masonry rules the world” and we only need look at our political leaders to comprehend the Truth of that! Remember, only 10 percent of the people in Russia were members of the communist party that enslaved more than 200 million other souls! What is the percentage of those who are governors, state legislatures, district attorneys, judges, etc., who belong to this “fraternal organization” in America? The numbers will shock those who investigate this occult phenomenon! For didn’t the Lord Jesus Himself tell us that it was the evil one, satan, lucifer, who controls the “kingdoms of the world”?!
And it is time for our Church to distance itself from those, whether inside or outside of Catholicism, who follow this destructive path and have — through this life-threatening infection — contaminated that which once was Holy and Good!

St. Maximilian Kolbe was inspired to form the Knights of the Immaculata. This great Saint watched as freemasons paraded below Pope Benedict XV’s balcony window, voicing such blasphemies as ‘satan must reign in the Vatican; the pope will be his slave!’ Saint Maximilian, who was graced with visions of the Queen of Heaven and was a martyr at Auschwitz, composed, as a devotee of the Miraculous Medal, this all-important prayer based on the Mother of Mercy’s words: ‘O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for those who DO NOT have recourse to Thee, especially freemasons!’
And St. Maximilian Kolbe,
pray for us!
