Manly Hall on Masonry … McAtee on Manly Hall

“No true Mason is creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in Temple, Mosque, or Cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth… No true Mason can be narrow, for his Lodge is the divine expression of all broadness.”

Manly P. Hall
20th Century Mason

1.) All true Masons are bound by the Creed that there is no Creed to be bound by except their Creed of no Creed.

2.) The Mason religion is NOT universal because it excises all religions which insist that the putative universal religion of the Masons is sin.
3.) If light-bearers come bringing different lights then it is the height of stupidity to say one only follows the light and not the light bearer. I must conclude Masons are stupid.
4.) Does the Mason recognize the oneness of the Spiritual truth that insists that Spiritual truth is not one?
5.) All Masons are narrow because they eliminate all those faith expressions which insist that their way alone is one true way… just the same as Masons.
The first Church I ministered had Masons in the congregation. They were an elderly couple. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. I wish the Southerner Reformed folk worried as much about Masons as they do about White Supremacy.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Familialist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C. Van Til, H. Van Til, G. H. Clark, C. Dawson, H. Berman, R. Nash, C. G. Singer, R. Kipling, G. North, J. Edwards, S. Foote, F. Hayek, O. Guiness, J. Witte, M.

Henry, G. Marten, P. Schaff, T. S. Elliott, K. Van Hoozer, K. Gentry, etc. My passion is to write in such a way that the Lord Christ might be pleased. It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

  1. The Masonic order was and is an international secret society for the purpose of the establishment of an anti-religious world republic. … The sermon that one should serve mankind, not the individual nations, found in it its most effective organ: the all-encompassing “humanity”, the “freedom, equality and brotherhood” of all human beings was systematically taught by it. … “To obliterate from human beings of every kind all differences”– “that is the great work undertaken by Freemasonry.” “If we obliterate all differences of rank, of faith, of views, of fatherland … we turn all mankind into a family.” [These] slogans were the coinage of the world order. They first resounded loudly in the year of misfortune — 1789. pp. 95-6. It is not surprising that, among the leading men in 1789, there were about 250 Freemasons. That many ultimately dropped the reins and were surrendered by their brothers to the guillotine, changes nothing in the above-named facts. The devil is simply in the end, as a rule, the dumb one. p. 99.
