brian,

 i met you at the super bowl in tampa in january. i missed
you in new orleans at mardi gras, just a big place and our paths did not
cross. actually i saw you at the praise rally on monday night but i was back
in the crowd.
i was a 32nd degree mason and a shriner at one point in my life. growing up
i had been a demolay and even demolay dad. i was a southern baptist since i
was 8 years old. at the age of 31 i met Jesus and received the Holy Spirit
in my heart. i was truly born again!
from that day forth i was never allowed by the Holy Spirit to pay any more
masonic lodge dues. i never entered a masonic lodge again. i was kicked out
of the order because of non payment of dues. the day i received the notice
it read, "you and your family now have no more protection from any lodge on
the face of the earth". i raised my arms and shouted, "Hallelujah, my
protection is in the Lord Jesus Christ."

at age 34 i went to seminary at southwestern baptist theological seminary at
fort worth,TX. each day for the first year i would go to the library and
read some of the dogmas and teachings of masonry. it is the one world
religion! all roads point to heaven they say. your good works will do it,
they say. Jesus blood means nothing to them. it is formed from isis, an
egyptian goddess and various hindu teachings. it is from the devil. it is
anti-Christ. a cult, definitely. to confuse more men and women , they have a
degree route that teaches a form of Christianity, the York rite. it is all a
sham and one day will be exposed. thanks for your stand. we were told in
seminary to choose our battles carefully. most said stay away from the
masonic battle. what they were saying was, we are fearful of it. well, the
perfect love of God casts out all fear!

the password is tubal-cain and comes from scripture. genesis 4:19-22
tubal genesis 10:2 Isaiah 66:19 Ezekial 38:2,3 and 32:26,27
this is the password for the entered apprentice degree in the blue lodge.
this is the 1st degree or lowest level of masonry. upon passing an oral exam
with extensive memorization, one is given the next degree, the fellowcraft
degree or the 2nd degree of the blue lodge. it's password is shibboleth from
Judges 12:6. after passing another oral examination, the 3rd degree (hence
the term one is "given the third degree") is conferred on someone and after
passing another test one becomes a master mason. by using scripture and
always talking about the building of king solomon's temple it causes a person
not grounded in the Word of God to think he is headed the correct way.

the blue lodge is the organization on the local level. it consists of men
who are in the entered apprentice rank, the fellowcraft, or the master mason
degrees. it also will have many men who have chosen to go higher in masonry,
maybe as high as the 33rd degree which is only given to someone who has
accomplished much in this world ( such as a political figure or great
benefactor). from the 4th through the 32nd degrees one goes to a scottish
rite temple to have these degrees conferred upon them. two days of my life
were wasted in this and i took many blood oaths that i had to be delivered
from though the blood of Jesus.

one wise man told me, you can be a Christian and be a mason, but he has never
seen a mason be a strong spiritual man of God's Word. from what i have seen,
i don't believe the two can mix very deeply.

blessings to you in the Name of JESUS,

DEAR BROTHER IN CHRIST:

I JUST READ YOUR OUTSTANDING ARTICLE ABOUT MASONS AND SHRINERS IN THE INTERNET.
I WAS HAPPY THAT I WAS NOT ALONE REGARDING THIS MATTER. I ABANDONED FREE MASONS AND SUBSEQUENTLY I DID THE SAME WITH THE SHRINERS. ONLY BY LOOKING AT THE HALF MOON AND THE STAR, REMINDED ME OF THE MUSLIMS AND THEIR BELIEFS. SUBSEQUENTLY, I ALSO NEVER COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY EVERY BIRTHDAY I RECEIVED A "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" CARD, STATING, "MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU". LORD FORBIDS THE ONLY UNSEEN GOD THAT COULD BLESS ME IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND THE WHOLE TRINITY, BUT NEVER "aLLAH. (THE TITLE DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE CAPITALIZED.)
GOD BLESS YOU ABOVE EVERYTHING !!!.

Letter dated 6-21-08

I found your website "Mason Busters" http://masonbusters.com/ on the Internet recently. I commend you and your colleagues for telling the truth! Freemasonry is about deception, greed and power. I was a member for 8 or 9 years and held various positions in the lodge. Some of the conflicts that have become Revelation to me are as follows:

1)  "Freemasonry is not a religion!"        This is a definite lie. They hold Masonic Funerals and say non biblical prayers in lodge (none of the prayers are from the Holy Bible).

2)   "Freemasonry makes "Good Men Better"!           This is another lie! Freemasonry teaches men to worship money and power! I know several former Worshipful Masters that are in prison for crimes or greed against their fellow man! Did Masonry make these individuals better?

3)    Claims of Famous Masons and their involvement in the fraternity.    In some instances their claims are bold faced lies (They once claimed President John Adams)! I question George Washington's involvement based on documented statements he made which conflicted with Masonry. I believe he was a Freemason, but did not fully understand the meaning behind it until later on in life. I have read that he attended lodge only nine times during his entire life! Three of those times were to receive his degrees (EA, FC, and MM). Many are ensnared in the promise of Freemasonry. Famous people and prosperity is the "Light" that attracts many to the fraternity. It is a false promise. It reminds me of Christ when he was in the wilderness and tempted by Satan. Christ said that Satan is the liar of liars!
They never tell you about the infamous Masons like Benedict Arnold, Albert Pike (KKK), Nathan Bedford Forrest (KKK). Jessie James. Billy the Kid, etc.
*Website owners Note  - President John Quincy Adams tried and failed to bring to justice the 69 Masons involved in the murder of a former mason, Captain William Morgan in 1826 as due penalty for revealing Masonic secrets.  Full story

4) "Freemasonry is a charitable organization!"   Based on my own personal experience I have not found this to be even remotely the case. I can not remember the lodge sponsoring a charitable event. If any money was given to a charity, it was a Masonic charity. The reports of the Shriners only giving 1% of their donations to the hospitals is criminal. The Shriners are the wealthiest charity in the world. Most of the money they collect goes into the endowment fund, not for helping crippled children.  
*Website owner notes -   In 1986, only 1% went to hospitals  Orlando Sentinal  ----   The respected Forbes magazine reports the Shriners have amassed a $9.54 billion empire by 2006 keeping $636 million of the money raised that same year. Top Shriner, James Full, collected a healthy $1,207,369 in salaries.

5)   "Brotherly Love:"    This ends quickly when money or power enter the equation. If any Mason wants to do the acid litmus test; tell him to question finances in the lodge. He will find it to be an unpleasant situation. The members will punish him and he will be ostracized.

6)    Explanation of why blacks are not in white lodges or recognized in Southern Jurisdiction! Blacks do not want to join!"       This is another bold face lie! Blacks are not allowed to join white lodges (lodges are recognized) in the north and their lodges are not recognized in the southern jurisdiction.

I started questioning Masonry after observing the behaviors that when on in the lodge. I now know that it is Satan's place and the God that they worship is Satan. I pray everyday that Jesus Christ forgives me for my transgressions!

I am glad that you are proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Savior and "True Light of the World"!

Yours in Jesus Christ

xxxx
