Is Freemasonry A Religion?

Albert  Pike, the Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite  from 1859 to 1891, is one of the most honored and influential American Freemasons  of all time. The Supreme Council exalts Pike by saying: "Albert Pike remains today an inspiration for Masons  everywhere.  His great book Morals and Dogma endures as the most  complete  exposition of Scottish Rite philosophy. He will always  be remembered  and  revered as the Master Builder  of  the  Scottish Rite." (The House of the Temple of the Supreme Council 1988)
A  few brief quotes from this honored Masonic  book,  Morals and Dogma, expose the Anti-christ nature of Freemasonry."
"The  doctrines  of the Bible are often not clothed  in  the language of strict truth, but in that which was fittest to convey to  a  rude and ignorant people the practical essentials  of  the doctrine."  
(Morals and Dogma, p. 224), [Albert Pike, Morals  and Dogma  of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of  Freemasonry, 1871 L.H. Jenkins Inc.]
"Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion." (Morals and Dogma, p. 213) "It  is the universal, eternal, immutable religion, such  as  God planted  it  in  the heart of universal humanity."  (Morals  and Dogma, p 219)
"Masonry  is a worship; but one in which all  civilized  men can unite;" (Morals and Dogma, p. 256) "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. Their true explication  is reserved  for  the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry."  (Morals  and Dogma, p. 819)
"It  reverences all the great reformers. It sees  in  Moses, the  Lawgiver of the Jesus, in Confucius and Zoroaster, in  Jesus of  Nazareth,  and in the Arabian Iconoclast, Great  Teachers  of Morality, and Eminent Reformers, if no more:" (Morals and  Dogma, p. 525)
"The God of nineteen-twentieths of the Christian  world  is only  Bel,  Moloch, Zeus, or at best Osiris, Mithras,  or  Adonai, under  another name, worshiped with the old Pagan ceremonies  and ritualistic formulas." (Morals and Dogma, p. 295-296)
"The first Masonic Legislator whose memory is preserved to us by history, was Buddha,.." (Morals and Dogma, p. 277)
"The Bible is an indispensable part of the furniture of a  Christian  Lodge, only because it is the sacred book of the  Christian religion. The Hebrew Pentateuch in a Hebrew Lodge, and the Koran in  a Mohammedan one, belong on the altar; and one of these,  and the Square and Compass, properly understood, are the Great  Light by which a Mason must walk and work." (Morals and Dogma, p.11)
"Masonry  is  a  search after Light. That  search  leads  us directly back, as you see, to the Kabalah." (Morals and Dogma, p. 741)
"The  Kabalah, a Jewish Occult book, is a  "Jewish  mystical tradition teaching godhood to man. Foundation of most  post-Egyptian,  Western  magical systems." (The Magicians  Dictionary,  p. 208, [E.E. Rehmus, 1990 Feral House}
"To  conceive  of  God as an actuality, and not  as  a  mere nonsubstance  or name, which involved non-existence, the  Kabala, like  the Egyptians, imagined Him to be "a most occult Light,".. (Morals and Dogma, p 740)
"Lucifer,  the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name  to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the  Morning! It is he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!"  (Morals and Dogma, p 321)
Just  as Pike stated, Freemasonry strives to deceive  Masons as to the true intent of Freemasonry. Freemasonry is an organization that deceives GOOD MEN.
Now  that you know the truth - renounce this great evil.  If you  have been involved with Freemasonry and wish to repent,  ask God to forgive you and renounce all ties with Freemasonry.
"You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, `No  one sees  me.' Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say  to yourself,  `I  am, and there is none besides me.' Disaster  will come  upon you, and you will not know how to conjure it away..  a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you.  Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, .. all  the counsel you have received has only worn you out  ..  let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are  like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot save  themselves from the power of the flame."
(Isaiah 47:10..14)
"Wherefore  come out from among them, and be  ye  separate, saith  the  Lord,  and touch not the unclean thing;  and  I  will receive you."
(2 Corinthians 6:17 KJV). This article was from the pamphlet "Immorals And Dogma" by Followers of Jesus Christ, Evansville, Indiana.
