-To be inducted into the Shriners a candidate must acknowledge that Mohammed is the true prophet (now all those Arabic symbols connected with the Shrine make perfect sense), and their Fez is symbolic of a "great victory" for Islam when in 1465 when residents of Fes killed thousands of Jews, reportedly leaving less than a dozen alive. The folks riding around in Fes hats in circles in those little cars seem much less amusing now.
-In highly disciplined lodges, the name of Christ is rarely if ever spoken, and in general the Bible, Koran, Buddhist, and other sacred texts are all placed at equal weight. This should be a problem for Christians who take scripture seriously and understand that Mohammed states in the Koran (S. 4:157-158) that the resurrection of Jesus did not happen. Either Mohammed or Jesus is mistaken. The book also documents well the peer pressure that plays a role in moving a Christian to make blood and death oaths that are clearly forbidden in the Bible.
-Very chilling is a comment overheard by the author when another 33rd level candidate expressed satisfaction that he was told that he would be "going higher" in Masonry after he professed disdain for ever becoming a Christian. This anecdote supports the contention made by many that the highest levels of Masonry are Luciferian. The author provides much additional background material in direct quotes by Albert Pike and others that support the same conclusion. The phallic nature of many Masonic symbols is also documented.
I know that most Masons are fine people- my grandfather was a Mason and my grandmother was in the Eastern Star, and they were both wonderful people. And the Shriner hospitals seem to be a wonderful service. But this book makes it clear that you have to ignore Christian principles more and more as you ascend the Blue and Scottish/York rite levels, and finally the conclusion has to be drawn that Christianity and Masonry can't co-exist. The two are simply at odds with one another. An appendix carefully contrasts the two. This book should induce some soul searching if you are a Christian and also a Mason.
There are a bunch of reviews that question the author's credentials and make sweeping statements about the poor quality of the book, but I haven't seen any that refute the details of the rituals or the basic conclusions in any meaningful way. Non-Christians will not like the premise of the book whether it is accurate or not. I would have given the book 5 stars but I felt that there were many details withheld that would have added value to the book. Still, a very good book filled with information.
He gave me a prayer of deliverance to expel any masonry elements in my life and in anyone in my family, living or dead. My brother, now deceased, was a 33rd degree mason. I read it often when I am in front the the Blessed Sacrament and after Massm. I know it will help me and my whole family...God help us all!.
