|Masonry Teaches That Its God
Is Not the Christian God
Masonry teaches that God is one person only (Unitarian) , while Christianity teaches that God is triune, not unitarian. An article by G.A. Kenderdeine, "The Idea of God in Masonry," cited in the Masonic magazine The New Age on pages 269ff. states, "Masonry holds and teaches that with all and above all there is God, not essentially a Christian Triune God" , (emphasis added).
Masonry also teaches that God is an amalgamation of all gods: "[The Mason] may name Him [God] as he will, think of Him as he pleases; make Him impersonal law or personal and anthropomorphic; Freemasonry cares not...God, Great Architect of the universe, Grand Artificer, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge above, Jehovah, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, or Great Geometer ..." . But the Bible teaches that the Christian God alone is the one true God (John 17:3) -- He is not an amalgamation of all gods:
"O Lord, the God of Israel, there is no god like The in heaven or on earth
Masonry also denies the biblical teaching on Jesus Christ. Albert Pike taught that Masonry held that Jesus Christ was only a man and not God:
"It reverences all the great reformers. It sees in Moses, the Lawgiver of the Jews, in Confucius and Zoroaster, in Jesus of Nazareth, and in the Arabian Iconoclast, Great Teachers of Morality, and Eminent Reformers, if no more ..." 
Masonry claims it does not offend a Christian's belief about Jesus Christ. For example: "We do not say to Christians that Christ was a mere man, whose life's story is only a revival of similar older [pagan] stories. To do any of these things would be irreverent. We utter no such words" . But Masonry does teach that Jesus Christ was merely a man . The important Masonic Ritual called the Maudy Thursday Ritual of the chapter of Rose Croix states officially, "We meet this day to commemorate the death [of Jesus], not as inspired or divine, for this is not for us to decide" .
In his spiritual darkness or ignorance, an individual Christian Mason may choose to believe that Jesus was God and Savior of the world, but this is not Masonic truth. Those who consider themselves enlightened Masons hope that their unenlightened brethren will realize that all specific dogmas about Christ are in error. As Clausen emphasizes, it is important to "strip from all religions their orthodox tenets, legends, allegories and dogmas" . This is why the Masonic scholar Albert Pike asserts that Jesus was "a great teacher of morality" -- but nothing more .
So it is neither fair nor true for Masons to say that Masonry does not offend Christians by teaching that Jesus was only a man. This is exactly what it teaches. Why does Masonry say that Christ was only a man and thereby offend the beliefs of Christians? It does this because it does not wish to offend the religious sensibilities of those Masons who are members of other faiths which deny that Jesus is the only incarnation of God and Savior of the world. For example, the unique nature and mission of Christ is denied by Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, etc. In order to not offend these people, it offends Christians.
This is why nowhere in Masonic literature will you find Jesus called God or said to be the world's Savior who died for men's sin. To portray Him in such a light would "offend" men, and Masonry wishes to offend no one. The necessity for this approach can be found in the fundamental doctrines or Landmarks of Masonry (the Fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man, and the immortality of the soul, Masonically interpreted). These doctrines presume beforehand that there is no either reason nor necessity that Jesus should be unique either as to His Person (God) or His mission (Savior). Thus, Masonry teaches that man already has a perfect standing with God. All men are guaranteed eternal life regardless of their personal religious beliefs. As a result, there is no need for God to incarnate (Philippians 2:1-8) in order to die for the world's sin (John 3:16) because the teachings of Masonry assume all men are saved or redeemed to begin with.
This is why Masonry completely excludes all particular biblical teachings about Christ such as His incarnation, redemptive mission, death, and resurrection. In fact, there is no biblical truth about Jesus Christ that is affirmed by Masonry as one of their Landmarks. This is why former Mason Edmond Ronayne confesses:
"Freemasonry 'carefully excludes' the Lord Jesus Christ from the Lodge and chapter, repudiates his mediatorship, rejects his atonement, denies and disowns his gospel, frowns upon his religion and his church, ignores the Holy Spirit and sets up for itself a spiritual empire, a religious theocracy, at the head of which it places the G.A.O.T.U -- the god of nature -- and from which the one only living and true God is expelled by resolution ..." 
The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus Christ is God:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God ...
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us ..." (John 1:1, 14)
Because Jesus Christ is God He will one day judge all the world, including all Masons
and other men:
"For not even the Father judges any one, but He has given all
judgment to the
Son, in order that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not
honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him" (John 5:22-23).
All of these teachings of Jesus in the Bible prove that Masonry is wrong in its teaching about Jesus Christ. How then can a Christian who claims to believe in Jesus as his Savior continue to support the false religion that denies His Lord? Did not Jesus Himself say, "Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and not do as I say?" (Luke 6:46). Did not even Jesus warn, "But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:33)? And did He not say, "Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 7:21)?
Masonic Ritual and oath demands that the Christian Mason's first allegiance is to Masonry, not to Jesus Christ. Who then is the "Lord" of the Christian Mason?
In conclusion, Masonry is opposed to the Christian God. One of the leading Masonic scholars, Albert Pike, describes Freemasonry as follows: "Masonry, around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim ..." , emphasis added). Notice that the term "Baalim" which refers to the false gods and idols that men worship (13) is also applied to the Christian religion. That means Christianity is considered to be as false a religion as all the rest.
Masonry only claims to be tolerant of the concepts of God found in other religions. In reality, it sees them as inferior to its own concept of God . But then how is it possible for a Christian to support Masonry when it denies the true God, blasphemes Him, and leads people to worship a false God? Christians are exhorted to "live a life worthy of the Lord and ... please Him in every way ... growing in the knowledge of God" (Colossians 1:10 NIV). They cannot do this by remaining members of the Masonic Lodge.
If Jesus came back today or you died and faced Him, how would you explain to Him why you continued to uphold the beliefs of an organization that rejects and denies Him?
