Masons make no secret of a desire for new members

The Freemasons, the venerable “secret society” featured in blockbuster films “The Da Vinci Code” and “National Treasure,” is back in the limelight — by choice this time — with a new attitude and a new marketing campaign to attract a new generation of members.

The group, one of the world’s oldest and largest secular fraternities, has been making an effort in recent years to “energize Masonry” and revitalize an aging membership using 21st-century media techniques — new concepts for the nearly 700-year-old group.

Maryland's Grand Lodge this year debuted a radio spot encouraging men “ready to put your mark on this world” to visit the new group’s website, Askafreemason.org. Maryland Masons said the marketing push followed a similar membership drive in Massachusetts, which included television ads featuring an actor playing famous Mason Benjamin Franklin. ...

I Can Tell From The Get-Go That Jordan E. Otero, The Author Of This Washington Times Article "MASONS MAKE NO SECRET OF A DESIRE FOR NEW MEMBERS", Is OBVIOUSLY Ignorant Of The Freemasons & Masons:

When He Calls The Freemasons/Masons "one of the world's oldest and largest secular fraternities"; Which Is A LIE OF THE DEVIL: As The Freemasons/Masons ARE TRUELY ONE OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST AND LARGEST RELIGIOUS & SATANIC FRATERNITIES:

LIKE THE SATANIC+VATICAN "JESUITS" !

In His Tract "WHY I LEFT FREEMASONRY", CHARLES G. FINNEY, D.D. Writes:

"When I was converted to Christ I had belonged to the Masonic Lodge in Adams, New York, about four years. During the struggle of conviction of sin through which I passed, I do not recollect that the question of Freemasonry ever occurred to my mind.

NEW VIEWS OF LODGISM

But soon after my conversion, the evening came for attendance upon the Lodge, and I went. They, of course, were aware that I had become a Christian and the Master called upon me to open the Lodge with prayer. I did so, and poured out my heart to the Lord for blessings upon the Lodge. I observed that it created considerable excitement. The evening passed away, and at the close of the Lodge I was asked to pray again. I did so, and retired much depressed in spirit..." !

Seems like a no-brainer in the “unequally yoked” dept. It is troubling that Masonry thrived even during the Protestant heyday of Scotland. It seems that public men just had to join something besides a church, whether the Masons or those woody London gentlemen's clubs parodied by P.G. Wodehouse.

Anyone who conducts their corporate worship/rites in aggressive secrecy deserves the suspicion they arouse. "The wicked flees when no one pursueth."

Boring trivia: American Lutherans established an Aid Assocation about a century ago in order to provide an alternative to the life insurance available to Masons, which evidently tempted many church members to join up. Thrivent Financial is a descendant of this (but they are too polite now to mention Masonry).

You cannot be a follower of Jesus the Christ and be a Mason at the same time.

Masons (Freemasonry)--Christian or Anti-Christian?
The above article wrote:
....
In the 19th degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, the initiate is told that attachment to Masonry's "statutes and rules of the order" will make him "deserving of entering the celestial Jerusalem [heaven]." In the 28th degree, he is told that "the true Mason [is one] who raises himself by degrees till he reaches heaven" and that one of his duties is "To divest [him]self of original sin ..." Masons clearly teach a salvation by works, or character development, not a salvation by faith in Christ alone. Even in the 32nd Degree, a Mason never can nor will find the "light" he is looking for.
If you have ever been to a Masonic funeral, you would know that they believe in a "works" salvation.

The Mo. Synod Lutherans also concur with the above statement in he Lutheran witness, Volume 13 use your browser search function for "mason"
