Freemasonary in the midst of the brethren

How many times are Christians warned against the cult of Freemasonry?

I can't remember ever hearing any warnings against Freemasonry from the pulpit. Other than one time I travelled about 35 miles to hear a guest speaker from the other side of the world.

Any views?

I think that Free Masonry is pretty prevalent among Baptists, especially among the SBC ones, which is strange, as their own group investigated it, and concluded that no Christian should join and be part of it!

I've known people who wear the Mason's ring and have the stickers or license plate holders on their cars or trucks. We have one in our church, I don't know if he is saved or not, God knows. I don't understand how he can hear the Gospel message so clearly, so often, and still associate with the Masons. I've heard some off color remarks and cursing from him. I've also heard him describe how he accompanied a previous preacher on Thursday visitation. If he went with me on a visit I wouldn't let him speak because its well known you never know what will come out of his mouth. I don't know of any fruit of the Spirit displayed by him. I've never asked him how frequently he associates with them, I'll have to ask him.

My Father was a Shriner, 33 degree Scottish rite Mason, and they are into Lucifer worship and terminology, as they have secret name of God , and have occulted rituals, so no Christian should be involved in it!

  My dad became a 33rd degree mason, but after he was saved, he quietly disassociated himself from them. He told me that he had taken a vow to not divulge their secrets & therefore wouldn't, not even to my mom & I, but he warned me that one cannot be both a Christian & a devoted mason, & that he had chosen Christianity.

 

   John Ankerberg had a series of shows that exposed many of the secrets of Freemasonry. Many of those shows, & similar ones, are available on YouTube.

I have taught plenty on the Masons, though there is little presence of them in our area.

That wasnt always the case, however: from what my wife tells me, who lived here before I did, the Masons ran the police department on the local Army depot; if you weren't a mason, you didnt get hired. Later, the Mormons took over from them. Of course, they're closely associated. 

But our local Masonic lodge, like our local LDS 'church', have both shut down, so not much concern with them.

father was a 33% degree mason, and the Masons for some strange reason seem to appeal to certain Baptist!

Mostly Southern Baptists, though certainly they are filled with those of other religions, as well as many who are atheists. What does it matter?

  The black churches in my area (Southern Ohio, Huntington, WV)  have lots of prince hall Affiliated Shriners in them. Huntington, WV was the annual meeting site for this org for a number of years, but the city leaders stupidly let this meeting move elsewhere. Its membership was largely-wealthy & spent a lotta $$ in the area ! It included many black business leaders & entertainers as well as pro athletes.

  While freemasonry is not uncommon here, it's not predominant. My IFB church has a couple of masons, but some are like my dad in leaving the org when they became Christians.

My dad showed me his masonic Bible, and when I read that the real name of God included pagan demons, not good!
