All Scripture quotations are taken from the Holy Bible, New International
Version. Copyright 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society. Used
1Albert Pike, The Book of the Words (Kila, Mont.: Kessinger
Publishing Co., n.d.), p. 151. (While some Masons may disagree with Pike’s
explanation of the secret name for God they cannot
deny the tremendous influence of Pike upon Freemasonry in the United States. A
reading of A Bridge To Light -- an official publication of the
Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction -- reveals
that many modern Masonic leaders also confuse the God of the Bible with pagan
deities. See A Bridge To Light, pp. 31, 120, 139.

Executive Committee, Southern Baptist Convention, 1993), p. 226. The oaths for

I know that there are all kinds of Christian images in Freemasonry, but as Gnostic's by declaration, these images are from a secondary Demiurge god. As a Freemason, either they believe this, or they believe that Jesus is just another name for the one true God like Allah, and Krisha, etc.
