What must be understood is that Freemasonry believes it is the universal religion of the Ancient Mysteries. This is pointed out in the literature of the Masons. Quoting the book New World Order, it states: “Thus, Masonry is a great fellowship of men of all countries and ages who are capable of discovering in the religious teachings of all humanity, some of them crude indeed, the fundamental truth COMMON TO THEM ALL: that God is the Father of all mankind (p. 156). “
It must be understood that the ultimate goal of all levels of Masonry is to receive more Light. Now the question is who or what is this Light? As any student of the Bible knows, there are two great Lights. The great archangel Lucifer was the great Light in heaven prior to his fall (Isa. 14:12-14) and the Messiah told His disciples that He was the Light, the Way and the Truth (Jn. 14:6).
Two of the greatest Masonic writers, Albert Pike of the 19th century and Manly P. Hall of the 20th century, confirmed this point. The book New World Order quotes Albert Pike. “Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries (p. 160).” Pike goes to say Masonry is “the successor of the Mysteries.” Manly P. Hall states: “…in masonry, the ancient religious and philosophic principles still survive.” Readers of the book of Revelation understand that the Masons are one of the Mystery religions of Mystery Babylon the Great, the Abomination of the Earth (Rev. 17:5). Albert Pike states in his book Morals and Dogma: In fact masonry, successor of Mysteries, still follows the ancient manner of teaching… Though Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries … (p. 11)” So, Freemasonry is a mystery religion.
