Require the candidate to swear solemn oaths of secrecy before being given custody of the secrets of the group. Interestingly enough, the oaths of a Witch are much milder and less gruesome than the oaths of a Freemason.
Here is the text of a first grade oath from the Witchcraft Book of Shadows ritual work-book:. I, [NAME], in the presence of the Mighty Ones, do of my own free will and accord, most solemnly swear that I will ever keep the secrets of the Arte [Magical Arts—author] and never reveal the secrets of the Arte, except it be to a proper person, properly prepared and within a magic circle such as I am now in. All this I swear, by all my hopes of a future life, mindful that my measure has been taken; and may my weapons turn against me, if I should break this, my solemn oath. All this I most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steadfast resolution to keep and perform the same…binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low water mark, where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly violate this my Entered Apprentice obligation, so help me God and keep me steadfast in the due performance of the same.
As all students of Freemasonry know, that grisly oath is but the beginning in a series of ever more horrid oaths which the candidate is required to take. The oaths of the three degrees of Witchcraft are like a Sunday School lesson by comparison! But, let's return to our list of similarities:. Both have a ceremonial un-hoodwinking of the candidate, following the oath, before lighted candles which is intended to bring "illumination.
Both convey to the new initiate the "working tools" pertinent to that degree, and each of their uses are taught to them. In both, the tools have correspondences both in the ceremonial realm, and in similarities to human reproduction. Both, in the higher degrees, take the initiate through a ritual death-and-rebirth experience, in which the initiate acts the part of a hero heroine of the Craft.
Both cause the candidate to endure while being blindfolded being picked up, spun around, carried around, being jostled or struck from person to person. This is supposed to produce an "altered state of consciousness. Both Wicca and Freemasonry are, by co-incidence or design, both referred to as "The Craft. Having given almost two dozen precise similarities between the ritual work of Witchcraft and the Lodge, it should not surprise us to see that there is also some doctrinal or philosophical resemblance between the two:.
Both Witches and Masons revere the powers of human reproduction albeit most Masons do so unknowingly. The most obvious example of this is the use of the ceremonial Masonic apron, which covers the "Holy of Holies" of Freemasonry, the male groin area. This fact has been adequately documented in many places elsewhere in this volume? Virtually all of the great Witches and sorcerers of this century were Kabbalists. Gnosticism is an ancient, anti-Christian heresy best summarized by the statement: Both Witches and Freemasons seek salvation through "illumination" or receiving "The Light.
Both groups teach a kind of salvation by works, not grace. Finally, both groups deny the unique character and mission of the Lord Jesus Christ. There are also significant historical antecedents which go a long way towards explaining this current "coziness" between Witchcraft and Masonry. It can be readily shown that Freemasonry is rooted in the medieval occult societies of Europe, such as the Templars and the Rosicrucians.
Indeed, many Masonic writers boast about these connections. Additional associations pop up with the dangerously subversive Illuminati Ordnen of Adam Weishaupt in the 18th century. It is vital to understand that this past interchange between Masonry and these various occult groups did not stop in the 18th century. If anything, it has grown more prominent in the past century. There is something about the Lodge that has always attracted sorcerers.
Wynn Westcott—member of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia and founding member of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn—the most influential magical society of the 19th - early 20th century. Theodore Reuss—head of the O. Hall—Rosicrucian adept, author, founder of the Philosophical Research Society. Would you really wish to belong to an organization which welcomed these powerful sorcerers into its midst with open arms?
This is not to mention the many minor occultists as I was , who are in the lodge—drawn by its mysterious power. At least three or four of my male Witch friends were in the Masons, and all of my leaders were! There is a real reason for this strong affinity between Masonry and Witchcraft. It is because the Lodge is plugged into an international network of Witchcraft—a hierarchy of evil. The "All-Seeing Eye" of the Masons is, of course, an occult symbol. You will note that the "Eye" is there perched atop an incomplete pyramid with the date in Roman numerals of A.
The year is also the year that Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati! Then realize that the trapezoid what the unfinished pyramid really is is a most significant symbol in Satanism. Being a Mason of whatever degree is like going through your life with all that spiritual garbage weighing down on you.
It is like having a King Kong-sized monkey on your back! While all levels of Masonry have their share of Witches; the Palladium, the Illuminati, the Ancient rites and the Supreme Council are especially likely to have them, in one form or another. The Mason is "unequally yoked" together with all these unbelievers and Witches in rebellion to the word of God 2 Corinthians 6: You see, in an occult sense, Freemasonry is much like the fabled "pyramid scheme. Just as in the marketing schemes, the person at the top of the pyramid draws in most of the revenues because of the efforts of hundreds or thousands of people under him, so the same element works within the lodge, even as it does—to a much smaller degree—in a Witchcraft coven!
First of all, it is a financial pyramid. We have already mentioned that a Mason must spend hundreds of dollars, perhaps close to a thousand, to go through the degrees. Additionally, they must pay dues every year to each and every body they have joined. This could amount, depending on the level of involvement, to several hundred dollars a year. While some of that money goes into necessities, and some of it goes into charity, some of it also ends up in places of which Lodge members have no knowledge.
Of course, our local leaders were obviously not getting rich, but there was a lot of free-floating cash somewhere up in the ranks. In the occult, we used to talk about psychic vampires—people who just seemed to suck the life out of a person. Of course, black magicians excel in this. They leave people feeling drained. The Lodge functions like a spiritual sponge in many ways. Think of all the millions of man hours Masons put into their lodge work: Those Masons who are Christians pour hours of time and energy into the lodge, and it just laps it up and begs for more.
I know, I used to be heavily involved in lodge work. I was out of the house at least two week nights! Then, because I was a lodge officer, I had to spend additional hours working on memorizing the ritual work. I had to be there before the lodge opened and after it closed. I had to attend all lodge functions and funerals. Think of the lodge meeting itself—it is opened in solemn fashion, with a ritual which may take fifteen to twenty minutes. If there is an initiation, the meeting can run to hours, sometimes three or four hours for third degree. I can only speak from Witchcraft experience, but quite often our leaders would just suck the energy right out of us.
They were accomplished psychic vampires, whether they realized it or not. Someone, somewhere, is getting an awful lot of energy out of these thousands of lodge meetings. Ultimately, of course, it is Lucifer, who is delighted to receive it as worship! This is energy not being expended in Godly church activities. These men could be teaching Bible studies, running youth groups, visiting the sick or doing neighborhood witnessing.
Countries - not companies - could be the next Lehman, selectors warn
But no, they are sitting in a lodge room watching ancient and dusty mummery being performed while the light of the Holy Spirit within them flickers out. It banks their fires of zeal and turns them, ultimately, into dead backsliders. Some stop going to church. Sadly, it is often the church activity. The Masonic temple is a temple of Witchcraft! There can be little doubt about that. They can care less if they were to call themselves AL-Queda if that is the case.
Do you see where I am getting at on this issue?
Freemasonry teaches the tenet of Relief. To soothe the unhappy, to sympathize in their misfortune, to restore peace to trouble minds should be the aim of each Freemason. We are supposed to be doing the work of Freemasons not in just my lodge or another brother's lodge or my jurisdiction nor someone else's jurisdiction, but all of us in this fraternity should be about the business of making ourselves visible to the public and the communities in which our lodges exists.
Basically, in order to combat this issue of Bogus Masonry, we must begin to do more in our communities. We have to start taking more initiative to participate in community affairs. If that's our only defense then we can hang it up. What makes us as Prince Hall Masons think that we can leech off of the community without showing any sense of reciprocity?
