In Part 2 of our investigation into Freemasonry, we discuss and expose its rituals and false teachings that oppose biblical Christianity. We examine some of its history and explain The Masonic Lodge’s emphasis on oaths, symbols, mystery, and good works, occult influences, and we contrast these philosophies with the Biblical worldview.
What agreement can exist between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.” “Therefore come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” 2 Cor. 6:16-17
But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. Matthew 5:34-37
