"It is curious to note too that most of the bodies which work these, such as the Ancient and Accepted Scotish Rite, the Rite of Avignon, the Order of the Temple, Fesslor's Rite, the 'Grand Council of the Emperors of the East and West Sovereign Prince Masons', ect., etc., are nearly all offsprings of the sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsey, Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and numerous others, who founded the grades in these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the Jesuits...."- Isis Unveiled, H.P.Blavatsky, (Los Angeles, Ca: The Theosohy Company, 1968; org published in 1977). p. 390. Freemasonry - Protestant Arm of the Jesuits [4] [5]

“The truth is, the Jesuits of Rome have perfected Freemasonry to be their most magnificent and effective tool, accomplishing their purposes among Protestants”…. The Grand Design Exposed, John Daniel, (Middleton, Idaho: CHJ Publishing, 1999), p. 302. [6]

"There are still old ladies, male and female, about the country, who will tell you, with grim gravity that, if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the world, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus are one and the same person!" - James Parton, 1855, American Historian; The Black Pope, M.F. Cusack, (London: Marshall, Russell & Co., 1896) p. 76. [7]


Masonic individuals are often classified by various masonic degrees. In most religious cults these classes range from degree 1 to 3 for common people, all the way up to the 33rd degree for more valued members of the cult. The York Rite and Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine each have their own degree system. [8]. Note: There are definitely higher degrees than the 33rd degree. (Higher Dergrees in Freemasonry are called Esoteric Degrees. The rite used is the "Rite of Memphis-Misraim" which contains 90-97 Degrees. Some other people says there are 360 Degrees. See Interview with an Ex-Vampire by Bill Schnoebelen )

Blue Lodge

According to Albert Pike Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite:

"The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry." (Morals and Dogma, p. 819)

"Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. Truth is not for those who are unworthy or unable to receive it, or would pervert it."(Morals and Dogma, p. 104-105)

"The symbols and ceremonies of Masonry have more than one meaning. They rather conceal than disclose the Truth. They hint it only." (Morals and Dogma, p. 148)

Albert Pike wrote in Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry that the artistic representations (symbols) which are revered by the uninitiated are in fact "idols" which represent occult teachings that are understood by high level adepts (initiates of the Luciferian mysteries):

“The symbols of the wise always become the idols of the ignorant multitude. What the Chiefs of the Order really believed and taught, is indicated to the Adepts by the hints contained in the high Degrees of Free-Masonry, and by the symbols which only the Adepts understand.” [9]

Another esteemed Mason put it this way:

FREEMASONRY is a fraternity within a fraternity — an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. Before it is possible to intelligently discuss the origin of the Craft, it is necessary, therefore, to establish the existence of these two separate 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 fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcanum arcanorum. Those Brethren who have essayed to write the history of their Craft have not included in their disquisitions the story of that truly secret inner society which is to the body Freemasonic what the heart is to the body human.” - Manly P. Hall 33°, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy and Introduction to the Study and Application of Rational Procedure, p. 397 [Chapter 19 - Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins] [10]

Is Freemasonry a religion

  • According to Bill schnoebelen there are 3 basic conditions to qualify as a religion:
    • (1) To have "Holy Books" / sacred scriptures
      • Freemasonry uses all major holy books (bible, koran, research others)
    • (2) To believe in god(s)
      • In the case of Freemasonry it is The Great Architect Of The Universe (GAOTU ), or Jahbulon
        • Each syllable of the 'ineffable name' represents one person of this trinity
          • JAH = Jahweh, the God of the Hebrews
          • BUL = Baal, the ancient Canaanite fertility god associated with 'licentious rites of imitative magic'
          • ON (Genesis 41:45, "...Potipherah priest of On") = Osiris, the Ancient Egyptian god of the underworld." [11]
      • Atheist cannot register as Freemasons
    • (3) Have rites and rituals
      • List all major Freemasonry rites
  • According to 33° Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike
All the truely dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabbalah and return to it: everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of the Illuminati, Jacob Boehme, Swedenborg, Saint-Martin, and others, is borrowed from Kabbalah, all the Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols. Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike 33°, Morals and Dogma, page 744
  • In his book, A Bridge to Light, an official Scottish Rite publication of the Supreme Mother Council, 33°, Rex Hutchins, 33° explains that the triangle of the Masonic Lodge represents pagan religions as well and he especially cites the Hindu trinity of Gods, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.3 [12]
  • Freemasonry’s ties to the occult
  • "Much of the writings of Albert Pike are extracted from the books of the French magician Eliphas Levi, one of the greatest transcendentalists of modern times. Levi was an occultist, a metaphysician, a Platonic philosopher, who by the rituals of magic invoked even the spirit of Apollonius of Tyana, and yet Pike has inserted in his Morals and Dogma whole pages, and even chapters, practically verbatim. To Pike the following remarkable tribute was paid by Stirling Kerr Jr. , 33 Deputy for the Inspector-General for the District of Columbia, upon crowning with laurel the bust of Pike in the House of the Temple: 'Pike was an oracle greater than that of Delphi. He was Truth's minister and priest. His victories were those of peace. Long may his memory live in the hearts of the Brethren.' Affectionately termed 'Albertus Magnus' by his admirers, Pike wrote of Hermeticism and alchemy and hinted at the Mysteries of the Temple. Through his zeal and unflagging energy, American Freemasonry was raised from comparative obscurity to become the most powerful organization in the land." - Manly P. Hall, Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins pp 413-414 [13]

Who is the god of Freemasonry

  • Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Freemason [14]
  1. "I hereby promise the Great Spirit Lucifuge, Prince of Demons, that each year I will bring unto him a human soul to do with as it may please him, and in return Lucifuge promises to bestow upon me the treasures of the earth and fulfill my every desire for the length of my natural life. If I fail to bring him each year the offering specified above, then my own soul shall be forfeit to him. Signed....  Invocant signs pact with his own blood." - The Secret Teaching Of All Ages, 1978.
  2. “When The Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply this energy.” - Lost Keys of Freemasonry, 2006.
  • Albert Pike, 33rd Degree Freemason, Morals and Dogma, 1871. [15]
  1. “That which we must say to a crowd is - We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees – The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine.  If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy 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.”
  2. “For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods: darkness being necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive. Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical 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 of Darkness and Evil.” …
  3. “Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the son of the morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with it's splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!”
