Does Freemasonry Conflict With Other
Religions Such as Christianity?
Though many Masonic authors state categorically that Freemasonry is a religion, they go on to claim that Masonry in no way conflicts with other religions. For example, Mackey in his Encyclopedia has written:
This statement reveals that Masonry does have a problem with biblical Christianity. The reason is because the Bible says, "And there is salvation in no one else [other than Jesus Christ]; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
It is nonsense to say a Christian can hold to two different religious beliefs at the same time, especially when they conflict. The Masonic Lodge says it is acceptable for men to worship God outside of Christianity. Jesus disagrees. He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 15:6 NIV).
Jesus Christ teaches that He is the way to God -- not Masonry, that He is the truth -- not Masonic religion, and that spiritual life is found only in Him -- not in Masonic doctrine and Ritual (John 14:6). In John 15:4-5 (NIV) Jesus teaches, "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
If a person agrees with the teaching of the Masonic Lodge, he logically must deny Christ. A person is forced to choose between the Lodge and Jesus. He cannot hold both at the same time.
Freemasonry obvious is a religion. Whether you are a
Christian, a Jew, or of another religious persuasion, if you are also a
member of the Lodge, do you realize that you are actively participating
in a conflicting religion? If so, then how can you also participate in
the religion of Freemasonry?
