God CANNOT lie!
God considers FALSE doctrines to be "damnable." Damnable = perdition,
pernicious. Actually, heresies are an abomination to Almighty God! Abomination = a detestation, idolatry. God HATES False doctrines . . . and false teachers and false prophets who spout them SHALL be punished! Psalm 7:11; 78:58; Pro.19:27-28; Isa.1:4; 32:6; Jer.7:18; 23:16,32, 25:7; Mat.15:9; Mark 8:15; Acts 20:30; 2 Cor.11:4,13; Gal.5:9; Eph.5:6; Col.2:8; Tit.2:8; Heb.13:9; 2 John 1:10; Rev.2:14; 18:3,6; 20:15.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)
??? "Christian" ??? Masons ???
When I started doing research on Freemasons, I was horrified at the results! I have always known the Masons were a false religious cult, but I never really looked to find out just what they believe and who all were members. Unless some do not research for themself, they will not believe what I will write about some famous people who "profess" to be "Christians"! See: Freemasonry
Some very well known preachers and evangelists who are or were Masons: RELIGIOUS LEADERS: Father Francisco Calvo (Jesuit Cat. Priest), Geoffrey Fisher (Canterbury), Billy Graham, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Joseph Fort Newton, Robert Shuller, Oral Roberts, Louise Farrahkan (Nation of Islam), G. Bromley Oxman (friend of Billy Graham), Joseph Smith (Mormon cult), Hyrum Smith (Brother), Brigham Young (2nd leader of Mormon cult), Sidney Rigdon (early Mormon), Heber C. Kimball, Spencer Kimball, Aleister Crowley (Satanist), Gerald B. Gardner (Wiccan), Wynn Westcott (Golden Dawn)
Masons deny their secret society is a religion, BUT . . . it involves a spiritual fellowship of men who, even though they at times praise God and give the Bible a place of honor, they simply commit themselves to an un-Biblical system of thought and practice. Over the years, MANY well known "Christians" have become Masons.
These "Christians" do NOT consider what is at stake in the issue of this "spiritual fellowship". The spirit is NOT of God! The spirit is of the devil! The ideas and practices of Freemasonry are NOT consistent with a commitment to God and Biblical Christianity. The fellowship of Freemasonry is NOT consistent with the fellowship of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:10-12 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. (KJV) . . . This teaches us we are to have "NO no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
Deuteronomy 13:6-8 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;  Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;  Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: (KJV)
God despises other so-called deities being used in association with His Name or Being. God does NOT want us to worship any other gods, whether they be from Egypt, Canaan, or wherever. Many of these deities, as you will see, are associated with the Ritual of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
Albert Pike wrote the "Morals and Dogma" of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry. Check out what he says on page 819. This is just one example of why there are many people in Freemasonry who believe that it is OK to be a Christian and a Mason. "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."
Freemasonry intentionally misleads the low degree initiates and hides the truth that the god of Freemasonry is Lucifer, except to those in the 30th and higher degrees.
According to the Southern Baptist Convention's, A REPORT ON FREEMASONRY:
In 1991, the Home Mission Board submitted questions concerning Freemasonry in the SBC to Baptist VIEW/poll. Baptist VIEW/poll is a survey by the Corporate Market Research Department of the Sunday School Board, SBC, of 1,433 Southern Baptists (283 pastors, 430 ministers of education, 247 directors of missions, 202 deacon chairmen, and 271 church clerks).
Of the 1,433 who received the questionnaire, 997 responded. One question was how important it was for the SBC to have an official statement on Freemasonry. A majority of pastors (60%), ministers of education (56%), directors of missions (72%), deacon chairmen (63%), and church clerks (74%) felt that such a statement was either "not very important at all" or had no opinion about whether a statement was needed. When asked if the issue of Freemasonry ever caused a problem in their churches/associations, the vast majority of each group responded that their churches/associations had never dealt with Freemasonry.
Of those responding, 14 percent of the pastors, 5 percent of the ministers of education, 13 percent of the directors of missions, 18 percent of the deacon chairmen, and 12 percent of the church clerks were or had been Masonic or Eastern Star members. (Baptist VIEW/poll, November 1991, and memorandum from Steve Whitten to the HMB Administrative Council, February 20, 1992.)
An estimated 400,000 - 500,000 Southern Baptist men are Masons. Among this number are many well-known Southern Baptist leaders. No attempt will be given to naming living Southern Baptist Masons. However, following are some well-known Southern Baptist Masons from the past.
Robert E. Baylor was one of eight Masons who petitioned for a charter for Baylor University in 1845. "Every president of Baylor University has been a Master Mason." (Carter, Masonry in Texas, p. 340. R.E. Baylor was a member of Baylor Lodge No. 125.)
One president was William R. White, 33d, who served as president of Baylor University from 1948 to 1961. He served as pastor of First Baptist Church of Austin, First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City, First Baptist Church of Lubbock, and Broadway Baptist Church of Fort Worth. He also served as executive secretary, and later as president, of The Baptist General Convention of Texas.
The first two missionaries sent by the SBC to Texas, James Huckins and William Tryon, were Masons.
George W. Truett (1867-1944), pastor of First Baptist Church, Dallas (1897-1944), president of the SBC (1927-1929), president of the Baptist World Alliance (1934-1939), and trustee of Baylor University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, was a Scottish Rite Mason. He was raised a Master Mason in 1920 in the Dallas Lodge No. 760; he received the 32nd degree in 1921. Of his Masonic membership, Truett said: "From my earliest recollection, sitting about my father's knees, who was a Mason, and hearing him and fellow Masons talk, I imbibed the impression in early childhood that the Masonic fraternity is one of the most helpful mediating and conserving organizations among men, and I have never wavered from that childhood impression, but it has stood steadfastly with me through the busy and vast hurrying years." (William R. Denslow, 10,000 Famous Freemasons, Vol. IV [Trenton: Missouri Lodge of Research, 1961], pp. 254-255.
The quote is from an address by Truett at the Grand Lodge of Texas meeting in Waco in 1940. The full text of Truett's address is found in Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Texas [Waco: Grand Lodge of Texas, 1940], pp. 148 -156.)
B.H. Carroll (1843-1914), first president of Southwestern seminary, was a member of Waco Lodge No. 92 and Herring Lodge No. 1224, both located in Waco, Texas. (D.D. Tidwell, "Dr. George W. Truett," The Texas Grand Lodge Magazine, March 1960, p. 113, and letter from James D. Ward of Waco, Texas, December 9, 1992.)
Carroll was instrumental in the creation of the Department of Evangelism of the Home Mission Board in 1906. Carroll was the author of more than 20 books, including The Bible Doctrine of Repentance (1897), Baptists and Their Doctrines (1913), and Evangelistic Sermons (1913). It is said that his favorite causes were evangelism, prohibition, home missions, and Christian education. (Melton, Religious Leaders of America, pp. 86- 87.)
L. R. Scarborough (1870-1945) was a member of Gray Lodge No. 329 in Houston, Texas. (Letter from James D. Ward of Waco, December 9, 1992.) He served Southern Baptists as pastor of First Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas, from 1901 to 1908; professor of evangelism at Southwestern seminary from 1908 to 1914, when he became president of the seminary. He authored a number of books, most of which focused on evangelism, including How Jesus Won Men (1926), or were collections of his sermons. (Melton, Religious Leaders of America, p. 409.)
W. W. Barnes (1883-1960), professor of church history at Southwestern seminary (1913-1953), was an active 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason.
W.T. Conner (1877-1952), who taught theology at Southwestern seminary from 1910 until his retirement in 1949, was a member of Southside Lodge No. 1114 in Fort Worth until his death. James T. Draper Jr. referred to Conner as "perhaps the most famous theologian to be associated with Southwestern Seminary." (James T. Draper Jr. Authority: The Critical Issue for Southern Baptists [Old Tappan: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1984], p. 64.)
William W. Hamilton, a Mason, was named the Home Mission Board's first head of the Department of Evangelism in 1906. He served as president of Baptist Bible Institute (BBI), now the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, from 1927 to 1943. While president, he saved BBI from bankruptcy in 1932, when the school defaulted on $353,000 in bonds. He was president of the SBC from 1940 to 1942.
Louie D. Newton (1892-1986), was president of the SBC (1947-1948) and vice president of the Baptist World Alliance (1939-1959), served 27 years on the SBC Executive Committee, and was a member of Joseph C. Greenfield Lodge No. 400 in Atlanta. He received his 50-year Masonic pin in 1980. He was also a York Rite Mason and a Shriner. He was the chaplain of the Yaarab Shrine Temple in Atlanta from 1939 to 1953, when he was succeeded by fellow Southern Baptist James P. Wesberry.

Wesberry, who died in December 1992, was pastor of Morningside Baptist Church in Atlanta for 31 years, president of the Georgia Baptist Convention for 3 years, recording secretary for the Georgia Baptist Convention for 20 years, moderator of the Southern Baptist Pastors Conference, and executive-director of the Lord's Day Alliance. (Sunday, September-December 1991, pp. 8-12.) He became a Mason in 1927. He was a York Rite Mason, 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and a Shriner. He succeeded Louie D. Newton as chaplain of the Yaarab Shrine Temple in Atlanta in 1953. Wesberry was succeeded as chaplain by another Southern Baptist minister, James C. Bryant, in 1981.
Joseph Samuel Murrow (1835-1929) was an appointed Southern Baptist home missionary to the Oklahoma Indian Territory, where he established more than 100 churches, according to one report. Called "the founder of Freemasonry in Oklahoma," he established the first Masonic Lodge in the Indian Territory, served as the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge in the Indian Territory, and wrote the Murrow Masonic Monitor. (Unpublished manuscript from Jim Tresner, ed., The Oklahoma Mason, n.d.) He was raised a Master Mason in 1867. He served as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the Indian Territory from 1877 to 1878 and Grand Secretary from 1880 to 1909. (Denslow, 10,000 Famous Freemasons, vol. III, pp. 249-250.)

He was professor of Christian history and librarian at BBI from 1919 until his death in 1925. He donated his personal library of 15,000 volumes to BBI. The library on the New Orleans seminary campus bears his name. Christian also pastored First Baptist Church, Chattanooga; First Baptist Church, Hattiesburg; Second Baptist Church, Little Rock; and other churches.
J.B. Lawrence, a Mason, was vice president of the SBC (1916-1917) and executive secretary-treasurer of the Home Mission Board (1929-1954). In 1943, Lawrence freed the Home Mission Board from debt for the first time.
