"...Masonry teaches, and has preserved in their purity, the cardinal tenets of the old primitive faith, which underlie and are the foundation of all religions."1
"The religious faith thus taught by Masonry is indispensible to the attainment of the great ends of life; and must therefore have been designed to be a part of it."2
"Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of Religion; and its teachings are instruction in Religion."3
B. Masonry is an institution wherein worship is conducted:
"Masons must be kind and affectionate one to another. Frequenting the same temples, kneeling at the same alters, they should feel that respect and that kindness for each other, which their common relation and common approach to one God should inspire."4
"That Rite [the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite] raises a corner of the veil, even in the Degree of Apprentice; for there it declares that Masonry is a

"Masonry is not a religion. He who makes it a religious belief, falsifies and denaturalizes it. The Brahmin, the Jew, the Mahometan, the Catholic, the Protestant, sanctioned by the laws, by time, and by climate, must needs retain it, and cannot have two religions; for the social and sacred laws adapted to the usages, manners and prejudices of particular countries, are the work of men." 4P. 122, (6th Degree)
"Qu.'...What are the symbols of purification necessary to make us perfect Masons?
Ans.' ... Lavation with pure water, or baptism; because to cleanse the body is emblematical of purifying the soul; and because it conduces to the bodily health, and virtue is the health of the soul, as sin and vice are its malady and sickness; unction, or anointing with oil; because thereby we are set apart and dedicated to the service and priesthood of the Beautiful, the True, and the Good: —and robes of white, emblems of candor, purity, and truth.
"Qu.' ... What is to us the chief symbol of man's ultimate redemption and regeneration?
Ans.' ... The fraternal supper, of bread which nourishes, and of wine which refreshes and exhilarates, symbolical of the time which is to come, when all mankind shall be one great harmonious brotherhood ... And thus, in the bread we eat, and in the wine we drink tonight may enter into and form part of us the identical particles of matter that once formed parts of the Material bodies called Moses, Confucius, Plato, Socrates, or Jesus of Nazareth."2
C. Masonry is an institution which binds its membership with sacred obligations— vows of a distinctly religious character:
"The obligation of the candidate is always to be taken on the sacred book or books of his religion, that he may deem it more solemn and binding; and therefore it was that you were asked of what religion you were. We have no other concern with your religious creed."3
"You have heard more than one definition of what Freemasonry is, of what its purposes and very essence and spirit are; and it has for every one of us the force and sanctity of a divine' law, and imposes on every one of us a solemn obligation.
"Freemasonry is the subjugation of the Human that is in man by the Divine*; the Conquest of the Appetites and Passions* by the Moral Sense and the Reason; a continual effort, struggle, and warfare of the Spiritual against the Material and Sensual."4*

II. Masonry Is an anti-Christian religious institution
A. Masonry teaches that all religions are man-made, and that it alone* possesses the cardinal tenets of that faith* which is the foundation of all religions:
"But Masonry teaches, and has preserved in their purity, the cardinal tenets of the old primitive faith, which underlie and are the foundation of all religions. All that ever existed have had a basis of truth* and have overlaid that truth with errors.* The primitive truths taught by the Redeemer [viz., Jesus Christ] were sooner corrupted, and intermingled and alloyed with fictions than when taught to the first of our race. Masonry is the universal morality* which is suitable to the inhabitants of every clime, to the man of every creed ... and those who have vengeance, political ends, and Jesuitism, have merely perverted it to purposes foreign to its pure* spirit and real nature."1
B. Masonry teaches that the religion of the Israelites has its essential roots in paganism:
"It is to Hermes ...that we must attribute the concealment or veiling (velation) of the Indian worship, which Moses unveiled or revealed, changing nothing of the laws of Hermes, except the plurality* of his mystic gods."2
"And in the institution of the Hebrew Priesthood, in the powers and privileges, as well as the imunities and sanctity which he [viz., Moses] closely imitated the Egyptian institutions making the public the worship of that Deity* whom the Egyptian initiates worshiped in private."3
"The doctrine of Moses and the Prophets, identical* at bottom with that of the ancient Egyptians, also had its outward meaning and its veil."4
"Magism was the Science of Abraham* and Orpheus, of Confucius and Zoroaster. It was the dogmas of this Science that were engraven on the tables of stone by Hanoch and Trismegistus. Moses purified and reveiled

Freemasonry is anti-Christian them, for that is the meaning of the word reveal."1
C. Masonry teaches that Christianity has its essential roots in paganism:
1. Masonry teaches that Jesus Christ is not true God:
"In the beginning," says the extract from some older work, with which John commences his Gospel, 'was the word, and the Word was near to God, and the Word was God ...'
"And the first sentence, fully rendered into our language, would read thus: 'When the process of emanation2, of creation or evolution of existences inferior to the Supreme God began, the Word came into existence and was
"...this is the new Law, 'the 'Word,' for which the world had waited and pined so long; and every true Knight of the Rose [Croix] will revere the memory of Him [viz., Jesus Christ] who taught it, and look indulgently even on those who assign to Him a character far above His own conceptions or belief, even to the extent of deeming Him Divine. "4
2. Masonry teaches that Christian Doctrine has its essential roots in paganism:
"The early Christians, taught by the founder of their founder of their Religion, but in greater perfection, those primitive truths that from the Egyptians had passed to the Jews and been preserved among the Essenes, received also the institution of the Mysteries ... "5
" ...Jerusalem, the murderess of her prophets, and so often prostituted to the false gods of the Syrians and Babylonians, had at length in its turn lost the Holy Word, when a Prophet announced to the Magi by the consecrated Star of Initiation, came to rend asunder the worn veil of the old Temple, in order to give the Church a new tissue of legends and symbols, that still and ever conceals from the profane, and ever preserves to the Elect the same truths."6

"Chrishna, the Hindu Redeemer, was cradled and educated among Shepherds. A Tyrant, at the time of his birth, ordered all the male children to be slain. He performed miracles, say his legends, even raising the dead. He washed the feet of the Brahmins, and was meek and lowly of spirit. He was born of a Virgin; descended to Hell, rose again, ascended to Heaven, charged his disciples to teach his doctrines, and gave them the gift of miracles."1
D. Masonry teaches the anti-Christian doctrine of salvation by works, promulgating the pagan dogma that virtue is always rewarded and vice is always punished—both in this life and in the hereafter, and that one may make expiation for his own sins:
" ...Salvation or reprobation begins here below, and the terrestrial world too has its Heaven and its Hell. Always, even here below, virtue is rewarded; always, even here below, vice is punished ..."2
"To this end it [Masonry] teaches this great and momentous truth: that wrong and injustice once done cannot be undone; but are eternal in their consequences; once committed, are numbered with the irrevocable Past; that the wrong that is done contains its own retributive penalty as surely and as naturally as the acorn contains the oak ... Punishment is not the execution of a sentence, but the occurrence of an effect. It is ordained to follow guilt, not by the decree of God as a judge, but by a law enacted by Him as the Creator and Legislator of the Universe ... There can be no interference with, or remittance of, or protection from, the natural effects of our wrongful acts.3 God will not interpose between the cause and its consequences; and in that sense there can be no forgiveness of sins.4 The act which has debased our soul may be repented of, may be turned from; but the injury is done. The debasement may be redeemed by after-efforts, the stain obliterated by bitterer struggles and severer sufferings "5
"The judgment of merit and demerit is intimately connected with the judgment of good and evil. Merit is the natural right which we have to be rewarded; demerit is the natural right which others have to punish us ... Punishment and reward are the satisfaction of merit and demerit, but do not constitute them ... Reward accorded to merit is a debt; without merit it is an

Freemasonry is anti-Christian alms or a theft."1
Masonry is an anti-Christian religious institution founded upon the doctrines of what is known as the Kabalah:
"All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabalah and return to it: everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the illuminati, Jacob Boehme, Swedenborg, Saint-Martin, and others, is borrowed from the Kabalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and their Symbols.
"One is filled with admiration, one penetrating into the Sanctuary of the Kabalah, at seeing a doctrine so logical, so simple, and at the same time so absolute ... a theology summed up by counting on one's fingers; an infinite which can be held in the hollow of an infant's hand; ten ciphers, and twenty-two letters, a triangle, a square, and a circle,—these are all the elements of the Kabalah. These are the written Word, reflection of that created the world."2
"The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics: it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended cries of the Templers; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry. "Magism was the Science of Abraham and Orpheus, of Confucius and Zoroaster. It was the dogmas of this Science that were engraven on the tables of stone by Hanoch and Trismegistus. Moses purified and re-veiled them, for that is the meaning of the word reveal. He covered them with a new veil, when he made the Holy Kabalah the exclusive heritage of the people of Israel, and the inviolable Secret of its Priests. The Mysteries of Thebes and Eleusis preserved among the nations some symbols of it, already altered, and the mysterious key whereof was lost among the instruments of an ever-growing superstition. Jerusalem, the murderess of her prophets, and so often prostituted to the false gods of the Syrians and the Babylonians,3 had at length in its turn lost the Holy Word, when a Prophet announced to the Magi by the consecrated Star of Initiation, came to rend asunder the worn veil of the old Temple, in order to give the Church a new tissue of legends and symbols, that still and ever conceals from the profane, and ever preserves to

3Here, for change, Pike is right: the ancient (Pharisaic) and contemporary Judaism is a corruption of the religion of Moses by Babylonian impurities and abominations.

the Elect1 the same truths. It was the remembrance of this scientific2 and religious Absolute, of this doctrine that is fine, alternately lost and found again, that was transmitted to the Elect of all the Ancient Initiations: it was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret association of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermitic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs more or less conventional and, above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power."3,4
"The Kabalistic doctrine was long the religion of the Sage and the Savant; because, like Freemasonry, it incessantly tends toward spiritual perfection and the fusion of the creeds and Nationalists of mankind. In the eyes of the Kabalist, all men are his brothers; and their relative ignorance is, to him but a reason for instructing them.5 There were illustrious Kabalists among the Egyptians and Greeks, whose doctrines the Orthodox Church has accepted; and among the Arabs were many, whose wisdom was not slighted by the Mediaeval Church.
"The Sages proudly wore the name of Kabalists. The Kabalah embodied a noble philosophy, pure, not mysterious, but symbolic. It taught the doctrine of the Unity of God, the art of knowing and explaining the essence and operations of the Supreme Being, of spiritual powers and natural forces, and of determining their action by symbolic figures; by the arrangement of the alphabet, the combination of numbers, the inversion of letters in writing, and the concealed meanings which they claimed to discover therein. The Kabalah is the Key of the Occult Sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists."6
"The primary tradition of the single revelation has been preserved under the name of 'Kabalah,' by the Priesthood of Israel. The Kabalistic doctrine, which was also the dogma of the Magi and Hermes, is contained in the Sepher Yetsairah, the Soliar, and the Talmud. "7
