youth camp 4

While children are out of school for the summer, parents may be working and  looking for activities to keep those kids occupied which is understandable. Choose wisely and without the eagerness of allowing them to go everywhere desire.  Some kids are being abused and some are not. If God gives them to you then you have the  responsibility to make the best sound decisions for them.  This generation is growing up quickly. Youth camps have grown common. Some kids are attending various camps from sporting camps to boot camps such as the Masonic Lodge Knights of Pythagoras. While freemasonry may have been common to the adults, but now some of the kids specifically young men are attending the freemasonry camps at various the masonic lodges, halls and temples across the scope. Synonymously some parents may allow the young girls to attend inductions into the Eastern Stars new order of tents. While these organizations are new to some people, they are resurfacing and being made manifested. Introduction to freemason

Building a friendship bond through the brotherhood

Friends have ALL things in common and Friendship is equality -Pythagoras

 ALL things in common? Suppose a Christian brother joins a masonic organization,  thinking to have all things in common with his newly acquainted brothers when he notices that one of his brothers is of a different faith.  He is told that masons can be of any religion. The Christian brother wants to witness or give his testimony, but he is told keep silent because religious preferences are personal and told that Jesus cannot be discussed. The Christian brother would have convictions in his heart about the brothers he is connected with in the masonic organization.  The Christian brother would feel convicted because the one thing he would seek  to have in common with his friends is his faith.  The Christian brother may consider that his friend/brother is  of the world.

The KJV Bible says in James 4:4  Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Though masons do not consider themselves to be a religious organization, members have to believe in a god to become a member so that very fact could make it a religious organization.

According to the masonic information page, an open volume of the Sacred Law, “the rule and guide of life,” is an essential part of every Masonic meeting.

For Christians, the Holy Bible is “the rule and guide of life” on how we are to live our lives and who we should connect with. It is our daily bread Matthew 6:11 KJV Give us our daily bread.While Sacred Law is regarded as a masonic rule,  the Bible is our rule book. It is prophetic and gives information on “the book of life”  where believer should aim to have their name , according to Revelation 22:19 KJV which goes against the corruptible inclusiveness and disclusion regarding God’s word.  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 

A strong biblical Christian should likely desire to be in things that coincide well with scripture. The desire to be apart of anything inimical to the Bible is usually shunned. Though there are temptations in the world will come, there is striving after righteousness (doing what is right). Galatians 2:20 KJV I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. We must represent Christ. Matthew 5:13 KJV Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. We are in the  world daily and will have to make contact with people,  but we are not of the world.  The world’s kingdom  is of darkness. It is of Satan.  The Bible says in Ephesians 5:11 KJV  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Freemasonry

According to the masonic information page, the organization is not secret because they proudly and openly wear masonic rings,  pins on their lapels etc. It is a private organization. While it is not considered a secret society by its member,  members are left in darkness and ignorance to secrets of ages. Things are revealed with they get to certain levels.  It is a secret society with complex structure ideologies and codes unbeknown to the common man. Masonic members are given numerical degrees and title according to their levels. Some of the titles are the apprentice, fellow craftsmen, master mason etc. As the members progress in the organization, the occult hidden secret things will be revealed to them progressively. These are things they must not disclose. Although there are videos YouTube and books at the library about the subject, oaths are made by the masonic members not to reveal certain information unless followed up by the consequences desecrated in the oath.

Body gesture,  handshakes, symbolism, hold various meanings are common to masonic members.  Those who are higher in the masonic hierarchal pyramid are more enlighted.

Manhood symbolism

The G inside the masonic symbol does not stand for God. Would it stand for God, when they cannot mention God?  The appellations of Supreme Being and Grand Architect are used in place of God.

Masonic brotherhood perks

It is a brotherhood. When a masonic brother or his family is unemployed, he can rely on his fellow masonic to ensure he is hired. While I knew this to be true already, the Masonic information page supports what I have stated. The person does not have to be qualified at all to do the job. They are not required to have college degrees and education. They may be afforded opportunities such as sitting in the president’s seat and executive offices based on their masonic connection alone.   The flipside is that the person who has a degree but has no  fraternal or masonic member family connections are often left in the dark wondering why they did not get the job. That is how it works.  The top political and famous people in the world today are a part of secret societies and freemasonry and eastern stars (for the woman). The television stars, even local college presidents are in these secret societies. This idea goes back  quite far. President George Washington and Benjamin Franklin are just a few who were freemasons.

Masonic Building Structure

It is comparable to a monastery, according to the encyclopedia. The architect of masonic halls designs often reflects various meaning even down to the checkered floors often seen at the temples. There are several code secrets.

The Bible acknowledges the children of Israel were in bondage  in Egypt that was not the place God wanted them. It was sure not somewhere he assured them his  abundance of blessings in staying.

Being blindfolded spiritually and physically is benighted

John 3:19 KJV  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil

If you are joining these things it is certainly your prerogative, but I heard the Bible say in Amos 3:3 KJV , “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

There was a man who had just became connected with freemasonry and he was trying to get familiar with his upcoming ritual. He was inquiring on what is riding the goat.

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 

 

All religious faiths are welcome in the organization.  John 14:6 KJV Jesus said I am the way the truth and life no man cometh unto the father but by me.  Christians who would attempt to have strong convictions address Jesus in a lodge are discouraged.  Masons primarily use certain appellation to express the deity as discussed previously. The prayers which are prayed in an inclusionistic  way to reflect no individual religious faith to avoid causing offense. According to the masonic information page, religion may not be discussed at Masonic meetings. Mark 8:38 KJV  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

To dismantle the specificity of faiths, the deity is expressed as Supreme Being and Grand Architect is worshiped.-Masonic information page

Freemasonry history spans back to stone brick masonry. 

There are many types including masonic lodges today. In fact there so many different types all over the world.    Prince Hall is a type of freemasonry.  Prince Hall was  rejected of admittance by the colonial freemason, he and others  together started the formation of his type. That one is called Prince Hall freemasonry. He was the founding father of that sector. Essentially there are lodges and types of freemasonry for various races whites and blacks etc.  In the lodges leaders may achieve various titles such as worshipful master, grand poobah and an array of titles within the organization.

Distinctions

Christians lives are directed by the Holy Bible. It is God’s pure instructions for their lives.  They follow the LORD God of the Bible, and usually not a masonic occultic ritual book called Monitors  (it contains their rituals). Masonic members are to  adhere to secrets and the Volume of Sacred while bowing to kiss it. Christian members within the organization may have the choice pairing the Volume of Sacred with Holy Bible if they desire.

Ezekiel 44:23 and Leviticus 10:10 KJV Speaks of the difference in the sacred and the profane. There is a difference.

Bowing and Kissing the Volume of Sacred

Luke 22:48 KJV speaks of the betray against the Son of man

“But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betray you the Son of man with a kiss?”

We do not want to do that.

 Can we know who are our brothers, sisters, mother etc. in Christ?

As far as obtaining brothers and sisters knowing who are your brothers and sisters in Christ as we live in this world there is scripture.

The Bible says in speaks expressively about basically letting us who is our family. Jesus was letting us know in Matthew 12:50 KJV  For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Who is the Father of the Masonic Brotherhood with brothers being of various faith?

According to Bible Scripture, either your father is the LORD God as described in Matthew 12:50, or thou father is Satan as described in John 8:44.

John 8:44KJV Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

Exodus 20:3 KJV Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Masonic Knights Lodge of Pythagoras

Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher and mathematician.  You may remember from geometry and calculus class that Pythagoras Theorem is named after Pythagoras. According to the encyclopedia,  Pythagoras was a disciple of Soches an Egyptian archprophet.

Isaiah 31:1 KJV

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help

Tetractys pyramid shape below

As a mystical symbol, it was very important to the secret worship of Pythagoreanism. Secret oath unto Tetractys. Secrets of the ages. Kabbala the ancient secrets reveal of how the universe life works.

The Tetractys symbol is a large pyramid with  several  inverted pyramids inside.

Matthew 5:34-37 KJV

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

According to Padfield information on the topic, blind-folding, bowing and kissing the Volume of Sacred are among some of the rituals. The book of “Monitors” contains masonic rituals.

According to the encyclopedia, Pythagoras lodge members adapt to  his philosophy, religion and ascetic.

According to the encyclopedia, Pythagoras asserted he could write on the moon. His plan of operation was to write on a looking—glass in blood, and place it opposite the moon, when the inscription would appear photographed or reflected on the moon’s disc.”

These organizations are seen as benevolent and there are some benevolent works, but personally and biblically it is not the way who wants to follow the will of God  in Christ Jesus.

People often want to be apart of the next big thing. It does not feel good to be left out of what everybody is doing. Our decisions in life should not be based on feeling empathy of being left out of temporal things, friends and groups here on the earth but  being  left out of heaven for all eternity. The decision is quite personal.  These masonic groups are popular amongst the church. There are church leaders who are apart of them and are aware of the darkness.  There are some who do not know what they are intrisicness of it. They may ones who may just follow the precedence and the incorporation of such groups which have become coherent within the church.

Often strong heartfelt people who desire to follow Jesus may express things all sincerity. Sometimes people will not like it. That is fine.  The Bible spoke of being hated for Lord’s name sake. They may not want hear it now, but the reality is coming that all who may not want to believe. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (Philippians 2:10 KJV)

You may find people may want friends to the extent they are often unwilling defend the Truth. They erode away from it.It is good to show yourself friendly and true Christians should be nice, but you have to stand. That is true love.

Proverbs 18: 24 KJV A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. His name is Jesus.

Parents should be afforded  to make best decisions for their children and the involvement. Many parents have no idea what they are involved in. The intricate details are often acquired after joining such groups. What is done at camp for the most part, stays at camp?  Choice decision

The Holy Bible says Deuteronomy 18:22 KJV And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
