Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. – Matthew 23:10 (KJV)

Masonic bible, king james version, used in lodge rituals

The first and most obvious problem with freemasonry is the taking upon yourself of the title “master”. In the very same translation used in masonic lodges, the King James Version says,

 ” Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.” – Matthew 23:10

Now these are the words and commands of Jesus Christ, the Word and Spirit of God incarnate, so they are to be taken seriously, if you want to be serious about God and the Bible (which freemasonry purports to do in using the bible in lodge rituals).

However freemasonry goes directly AGAINST these words and commands of Christ and the Bible as many honorific titles attributed to the mason specifically include the word Master.

The leader of the lodge is given the title “most worshipful master” at the end of the first three initiations the candidate is given the title “master mason”. A list of some more titles in masonry that directly disobey the command of Christ;

1. master mason

“York rite” freemasonry

2. Mark master

3. Past master

4. most excellent master

5. royal master

6. select master

7. super excellent master

“Scottish rite” freemasonry

8. secret master

9. perfect master

10. master elect of nine

11. sublime master elected

12. grand master architect

13. master of the ninth arch

14. master ad vitam

As you can see if you examine the structural chart of masonry below, the vast array of haughty titles is not limited to master either. There are many of the most glorious and self congratulatory titles one could imagine.

Masonic pyramid structure of haughty titles

What is the purpose of this? It is to steadily puff up the pride of the individual and breed in them the delusion of self empowerment.

Another blaspheme and act of disobedience involved in freemasonry at the initial stages even is the taking of oaths. This is another thing Christ expressly commands against doing in the very Bible sitting under the square and compass in the lodge rituals.

 “Again, you have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, “You shall not swear falsely, but carry out the vows you have made to the Lord.’ But I say to you, Do not swear at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God,  or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.  Let your word be “Yes, Yes’ or “No, No’; anything more than this comes from the evil one.  – Matthew 5:33-37

Interesting here that Jesus says anything beyond a yes or no, any oath or bound commitment is actually from the evil one, satan / lucifer.

The seriousness of oath taking is further affirmed by James, the brother of Jesus, son of Mary and Joseph and disciple;

Above all, my beloved, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “Yes” be yes and your “No” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation. – James 5:12

James states that oath making makes a person fall under condemnation, and it is clear he felt it a serious matter and teaching from Christ, enough to state “above all” do not do it.

In masonry complex death oaths are made at each stage of initiation and ritual.

To add to this initial warning of anti-christ and blaspheme there is also Christ’s warning about doing things in secret and thinking they are hidden;

Nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed from the housetops. – Luke 12:2-3

Clearly freemasonry is going against these three commands and instructions of Christ, who is God incarnate.

Why is this done? I believe it is actually an intentional mockery of Christ, God and the Bible, orchestrated by the ones who devised the rituals and system, relying on the spiritual and scriptural ignorance of the new candidates. Unbeknown to those who engage in freemason rituals, they are actually performing acts which go directly against the commands and words of Jesus, who is the word of God.


So even from an entry level perspective we can see that freemasonry is an organisation which incorporates traditions expressly condemned by Christ. If you are a believer in Christ and the bible please consider and review what has been written above. Accepting haughty titles, taking oaths and acting in secrecy are directly forbidden by Jesus. Jesus also says;

Jesus answered, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. – John 14:23


The one who doesn’t love Me will not keep My words. The word that you hear is not Mine but is from the Father who sent Me. – John 14:24

So this is a very serious business. It appears that from the get go freemasonry requires a person to transgress the commands of Jesus. Because most people are not well read biblically they go along with this. They think that because there is a Bible involved in the oath taking ritual that it must be above board and godly, when in fact the very practices partaken are unbiblical.


Further evidence that freemasonry is incompatible with the Bible, Christianity and faith in the one true God is revealed in a later stage of ritual initiation. From the book Duncan’s Masonic Ritual and Monitor, by Malcom C. Duncan, [1866], we find that at the “royal arch” or seventh degree of york rite freemasonry the candidate is told ;

“High Priest (to candidates.)–Companions, here are three mysterious words, in a triangular form, upon the Ark, which, when first found, were covered with three squares, the jewels of our three ancient Grand Masters; and from this circumstance, we supposed it to be the long-lost Master Mason’s word; and, on applying our Key to it, it proved our suspicions to be correct. It is the name of Deity in three languages, viz., Chaldaic, Hebrew, and Syriac, which is the long-lost Master Mason’s word, or Logos, and has now become the Grand Omnific Royal Arch word.” page 249

This part of the ritual claims that the secret name of God is actually a combination of the names of God in three different languages, and therefor cultures, 1 Chaldaic, 2. Hebrew, 3. Syriac

and the royal arch degree continues saying..

“… They balance in the same manner, and then, with hands raised, repeat the words Jah-buh-lun, Jehovah, G-o-d, at low breath” page 250

So at the royal arch degree the name of god is revealed as “Jah-buh-lun”. However this can have several pronunciations and the notes in this book attempt to clarify this by saying;

“But the Royal Arch Degree is founded on the number three, and therefore each member of the word ought to have been triliteral. Among the Syrians, the Chaldeans, the Phœnicians and others, the ineffable name of the Deity was Bel, Bal, Bul, Baal, or Belin. . . . Again, the Egyptians and Hindoos reverenced On or Om, i.e., Aun, or Aum, as the name of their chief Deity.” – page 15 of The Insignia by Dr. Oliver, Royal arch freemason

So the secret word for God revealed in freemasonry is better rendered  “Jah baal Om” – a combination of hebrew and other pagan nations titles for deity. This is clearly unworkable biblically and is the philosophical introduction of theosophy or new age universalism which teaches all cultural deities are speaking of the same one God. This however is not the case and the same Bible, in which these rituals are performed in front of, is very clear in the God of the hebrews being the one true God and that all other gods are false and should not be worshipped.

the pagan god baal is directly mentioned and condemned many times in the Holy Bible as an idol and false God. Below are some ancient depictions and idols of baal.

ancient depictions of the pagan idol baal, who is recognised as god in freemasonry

So this is again a case of blaspheme in masonic ritual, practice and belief. Here are some scriptures which make it clear there is only one true creator God of spirit and condemn the false pagan gods which are idols.

Do not have other gods besides Me. – Exodus 20:3 (The 1st of the 10 commandments written by the very finger of God)

 So Jacob said to his family and all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods that are among you. Purify yourselves and change your clothes. – Genesis 35:2


“I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and strike every firstborn male in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. I am •Yahweh; I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt – Exodus 12:12  (God and the Bible condemns the gods of egypt directly, which is in total contradiction with freemasonry’s attempt to unify them as the same god)

The acceptance of such a doctrine of spiritual unification with pagan gods relies again upon the candidates spiritual and scriptural ignorance. As has been demonstrated, the Bible clearly condemns the worship and recognition of pagan gods, but freemasonry leads to their recognition and exaltation as equivalent with Yahwey, I AM THAT I AM – the One true God of Spirit in the Bible. This is another example of where the bible is being used in masonic lodges, but the rituals and philosophies engaged in go directly against what it says.


Another anti-biblical aspect of freemasonry is the famous masonic eye, also included on the american one dollar bill, termed “the eye of providence”. This is acknowledged to be a depiction of God, however the Bible again is very clear about not making any image in an attempt to depict God. This is because the true creator is Spirit and not limited or defined by a created form.

From masonic certificate in 1876

Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth. – Exodus 20:4 (The second of the 10 commandments)

To represent God by any shape “in the heavens above” or “on the earth below” is again direct disobedience to the Bible. As humans and the human eye are “on the earth below” this is clearly the breaking of this command. Whatsmore, the image of that of a human eye, which entails the subliminal implication that man is god, or that man can become god which is the eventual teaching of theosophy, hermeticism and mormonism. This was the original lie told by satan through the serpent in the garden of eden to Eve. Part of satan’s temptation to eve was the promise of becoming god-like. It is this ambition which underlies the doctrine of illuminism, self enlightenment and ascension into divinity, disregarding the one true eternal creator God as God alone.

masonic “eye of providence” on US one dollar bill – also thought to be the official seal of the illuminati

So the depiction of God as an eye within a pyramid is a direct blaspheme to God. The eye is human, and what it is saying in reality is that man is god or that man can become a god.


The occult meaning of the masonic logo

Now I would like to focus on the famous masonic logo, the square and compass.

“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.”

  1. So a well educated, trained and skilled mechanic is committing blasphemy because many of them are frequently called “master mechanics”… this is how the word “master” is used in freemasonry. Your logic is deeply flawed on that point and likely on all of them (I didn’t bother reading farther, I just scanned through it quickly). The use of the word “master” in freemasonry has nothing to do with the way the word “Master” is being used in the KJV with respect to the LORD God. I have not had time to dig into the actual Greek/Aramaic words used from the various original writings and the more literal translation of what ends up in the KJV but… context is everything. Please read the book “Freemasonry for Dummies” so that you get a clue about what is going on or more importantly what is not going on in freemasonry. The Pike quote is addressed as well. In debates with many atheists/non-Christians I have had to deal with many Bible quotes taken out of context. They usually do not want to hear the context of, for example, why David’s first child with Bathsheba was killed…. Have you bothered to read any of the text before and after the quotes you site to get some context? We all know that any text taken out of context is just a pretext…. You, like most all atheists/non-Christians I communicate with, will likely not bother to read up or study more about real freemasonry but instead hold tight to you hate for freemasonry…. I have been a Christian for ten years now (I am a late convert turning at age 37), I have read the Bible cover to cover once and am currently working on doing it again, and I am petitioning a local masonic lodge to become a freemason.


    • – It depends if you want to obey Christ and the Bible or not – if you do, you should not call yourself Master, Lord, or any other honorary title as this puffs up the pride and deludes you into thinking you are above others, which is the opposite of humility. Pride is the source of all sin and wanting to be called by haughty titles is highly prideful and arrogant. You can’t expect to come before God with pride and such arrogance.

      Freemasonry is spiritual poison – the higher levels of initiation advocate the teachings of gnosticism, kaballah and hermeticism which leads to the false doctrine that man is god, and the practice of witchcraft and demonic influence.

      It is a system that lures the spiritually naive and ignorant in with an outward appearance of charity, goodness and brotherhood, but the real philosophy and dogma hidden behind the rituals laid out by the founders of it is actually a rejection of God, a worship of baphomet/lucifer and an adherence to his doctrine of self godhood. Even if a lower level mason like yourself does not accept lucifer or the idea you are a god, this is the doctrine at the head of the organisation, which puts over you that spiritual influence and spirit, which acts like a spiritual deception and darkness.

      If you read this article, and you think objectively you will begin to realise that the bad fruits of freemasonry are actually present from the very beginning and outward stages, but it relies upon the spiritually ignorant to ignore these things to get them increasingly bound by oath and spirit into something they feel they can no longer escape. The best advice is to get out while you still can, if your mind and spirit is not too deceived already.

      As you didn’t read beyond this first point of mine I won’t bother responding to the rest of your post.


    • Initial things that make freemasonry incompatible with the Bible & christianity is 1.assuming haughty titles 2.making oaths 3.acting in secret
      The Bible and Christ expressly speak against doing these things, yet they are fundamentals of freemasonry from the start. Taking upon yourself honorific titles is directly condemned by Christ in Matthew 23, as this puffs up the pride and ego, which is a huge obstacle to Holiness and coming into God’s presence. There is a whole host of hidden occult meaning and symbolism within freemasonry – even though it uses a bible in the rituals, it is really working against what the Bible teaches and leads to the philosophy of gnosticism and kaballah at the highest levels.


  2. Everything depends on the purpose which one has in mind while criticizing freemasonry. Some use things like this simply for their own selfishness. Others use it to attract People into their gathering. In your Argument here, there is nothing to prove that freemasonry is such a secret society. What about churches that refer to their leaders as “most Reverend” or “Pope” etc. Just mind your own Business and stop blackmailing others


    • – yes calling men “reverend” or “pope” which means papa Father – are equally as haughty, wrong and against the words of Christ as the plethora of haughty titles in freemasonry


  3. what are we to make of the little piece of the creator which makes up our whole spiritual being then?
    are we not to develop our potential and capabilities in order to best reflect the creator’s divine magnificence
    here on this most exquisite of creations, mother earth?

    should we also accept, if you are not going to discern with the biblical texts which were famously butchered
    by the first enemy of jesus, constantine and his holy roman catholic empire, at the council of nicea in ad 325,
    that all humans are born with original sin, and basically therefore evil and deserve our sad and horrid lives?

    are we or are we not from god? because i don’t think the masonic bible is the only bible that has been subverted by this
    lucifer character, whoever it may be..

    power & love & freedom. the only way to win is to put aside our programmed differences and realise who or what
    the true enemy really is, and that we have all been conned one way or another into having faulty beliefs that have purposely led us away from the truth..


    • all the books that make up the bible and NT were in circulation long before constantine in the 4th century.
      It wasn’t even constantine who decided the cannon, it was a gathering of the early church leaders – some unbiblical traditions did creep into the Roman church via constantine though – but the Bible wasn’t altered, the texts date before that. Exaltation of mary to such prominence was pagan and wrong, basically goddess worship, changing sabbath day, placing Jesus’s birthday at dec 25th, creating official titles of father and so on – but these are all unbiblical and can be seen as wrong by study of bible
