Some of the best and brightest among us are numbered with those societies; and it is on this account that we make these remarks. We desire to see these noble men expending their time, talents and strength for higher and nobler objects than any that can be attained by the weak and glittering follies of odd-fellowship and freemasonry.
It is absolutely incredible that Freemasonry could have as its secret name for God, a word whose components come from the Pagan gods Baal and On! Baal is referred to many times in the Bible as being a false god to whom idolatrous nations were offering human sacrifices (see 2 Kgs. 16:3, 21:3-6). I cannot see how a professing Christian could possibly call the true and living God by a man-made name such as "Jah-buh-lun"!
