Cutting Edge Ministries, Part 6: Freemasonry & Nazism

Today I’ll be responding to the claims made by Cutting Edge Ministries in regards to supposed connections between Freemasonry and Nazism.

When Masonic author, J.D. Buck, said in his book, Mystic Masonry, that the teachings of Freemasonry were identical to those of the Theosophical Society, I came straight out of my chair!  The Theosophical Society is one of the darkest secret societies in the entire world, having much in common with the Thule Society, the Black Magick Satanic secret society that trained Adolf Hitler in all the deepest aspects of Satanism.

Apparently no evidence is required for this. Look, as twisted as the Thule Society might seem/be, you still can’t make shit up. The Thule Society was not Satanic. Also, you better back up your claim of the Theosophical Society being related to the Thule Society.

In fact, Dietrich Eckart, who was the leader of the ThuleSociety in 1919 when young Adolf joined, was told by his Guiding Spirit that Hitler was to be the Great One, the prophesied Antichrist.

Dietrich Eckart never was a member of the Thule Society, although he was acquainted with leaders of said society. Although some writers have suggested that Eckart was some sort of spiritual teacher or father to Hitler, there’s no evidence to back this up. Eckart did not await the coming of the Antichrist, he, like many occultists in Germany at that time, awaited the coming of a German messiah. There’s also no proof that Hitler ever was a member. Another interesting fact is that Hitler himself severed the DAP’s ties with the Thule Society, which resulted in the society going into a decline and ultimately being completely shut down due to anti-Masonic legislation. I suggest reading this.

This is the type of Black Magick organization that the Theosophical Society truly is, in their inner heart of hearts. One author boldly proclaimed, “Hitler was a disciple of the occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky” –Founder of House of Theosophy — [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic And Occult Symbols, p. 332]

This quote is a bit dishonest and no doubt would lead an uninformed reader to an unfortunate conclusion. In reality, the author, Cathy Burns, is a fundamentalist Christian, involved in the anti-Masonic, right-wing movement. Burns has no interest in putting forth the truth, it’s all about money. I haven’t the space nor the time to go into detail here, suffice to say that Cathy hasn’t done any real, scholarly research into the subject. That, or the good doctor doesn’t care. Here‘s something that may be of interest.

FREEMASONRY IS IDENTICAL WITH TEACHINGS OF HOUSE OF THEOSOPHY

We shall begin with an inspection of these two symbols, i.e., the symbol of the House of Theosophy on the left and the symbol of the Nazi Party on the right.  Notice that the House of Theosophy symbol is the occultic Snake Eating Its Tail, the Oroboros.

Ooh, that’s pretty sneaky. You use a version of the Nazi symbol that’s just small enough that you can’t quite make out that the circle in the symbol isn’t a snake, but a Wreath.

Here’s a version of the symbol that’s slightly different, but sufficiently large. The circle is indeed the same as in the other version.

Immediately underneath the snake in the middle is the Swastika; however, the Theosophist symbol shows the Swastika in a rotating position, so that its points are a little off center.  The Nazi Swastika is not shown rotating.  You see, the Swastika is an ancient symbol found in most occult groups all over the world, from the Celts in Europe to China.  The Swastika is a four-limbed cross, and is usually portrayed as rotating constantly.  The Theosophical Society has the swastika rotating, so its legs are slightly off center compared to the Nazi Swastika.  However, both Swastikas  portray the identical meaning of “luck” and “reincarnation” [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols , p. 19, and 241]

Not quite. Hitler hijacked many of the Hindu myths, including the Aryan people and the Swastika. He didn’t, however, attach the same meaning to them. Hitler didn’t actually look at the Swastika as a symbol of luck, but as another symbol of German honor. “As National Socialists, we see our program in our flag. In red, we see the social idea of the movement; in white, the nationalistic idea; in the swastika, the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man, and, by the same token, the victory of the idea of creative work.”[Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf]

Now, let us hear Masonic J.D. Buck, explain the House of Theosophy symbol.  “The perfect equilibrium of spirit and matter is symbolized by the six-pointed star, which is again only another form of the Square and Compass, each having a base-line from which to form a triangle.”  [Mystic Masonry, 1913, p. 244-45] The “six-pointed star” here is the Hexagram !

Let us stop right here to digest what Masonic author, Buck, has just told us.  He has just told us that the hexagram is only “another form of the Square and Compass, each having a base-line from which to form a triangle”.  Let us examine closely the Satanic hexagram with the Square and Compass.  

Therefore, the Masonic Square and Compass is identical to the hexagram .

No, it’s another form of it. Read.

Remember the words of a former witch, “When the male triangle penetrates the female triangle, it forms the six-pointed crest of the Seal of Solomon or hexagram, the most wicked symbol in witchcraft”. [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols, p. 39]

You mean remember the words of a known liar that has absolutely no authority on the subject.

Thus, we have another admission, from a Masonic author, that Freemasonry is identical with Satanism.  When you look at the Square and Compass from now on, just remember that it is identical to the Satanist’s hexagram.  Now, let us continue with this quotation from Masonic author, J.D. Buck, in his 1913 book, Mystic Masonry.

So you’re saying that every hexagram ever used is Satanic?

Ironic, since were talking about the Nazis.

Thus, we have another admission, from a Masonic author, that Freemasonry is identical with Satanism.  When you look at the Square and Compass from now on, just remember that it is identical to the Satanist’s hexagram.  Now, let us continue with this quotation from Masonic author, J.D. Buck, in his 1913 book, Mystic Masonry.

“Enclose the star in a circle, which symbolizes Infinity, and you symbolize the harmony, or the at-one-ment of the Spirit that descended, and the body, now purified, with Divinity, or the Over-Soul.” [Ibid.]  Therefore, when you put a circle around a hexagram, as in the Satanic symbol, above, you get “harmony”, and the “body, now purified”.  Does Freemasonry ever put a Square and Compass in a circle?  You bet they do, as you can see from this symbol.   Now, we have another meaning to the Square and Compass when it is surrounded with a circle — harmony, the same meaning as Satanist apply to the encircled hexagram.

Like I know for a fact you’ve been told, being a Mason doesn’t automatically give you magic powers over other Masons minds. You need to earn respect and authority in order to be taken seriously. This is why the review of J.D. Bucks’ book in A Masonic Readers Guide had this to say about it: “An illustration of the use of a vivid imagination and making the Craft an occult organization. To be read with caution.” That was over 50 years ago. We fail to find any other review of the works of Masonic authors (and there are dozens) which take even the slightest note of Buck’s work.

Now, skipping over a bit, until you stop quoting Buck, since we don’t really have to pay any mind to what he has to say, given his widespread rejection in the Masonic world.

Now, we get to our basic point:  the House of Theosophy directly links to Nazism. This link is especially strong in their commitment to the Satanic document, The Secret Doctrine, upon which Hitler built much of his philosophical basis for the anti-Semitism which lead directly to the Holocaust gas chambers, in which 6 million Jews died.

Actually, Hitler built his doctrine of anti-Semitism largely on the fact that Germany had just lost a bitter war, the economy was in a bad shape and people were looking for a scapegoat. There was a long history of anti-Semitism in Germany, spread by CHRISTIANS, including Martin Luther and his book Von den Jüden und jren Lügen(On the Jews and Their Lies). The Secret Doctrine actually has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. If you only had read it, you’d know as much.

This Secret Doctrine is explained by Alice Bailey, in her book, Externalisation of the Hierarchy, which was dictated to her by her demonic Guiding Spirit, Master D.K.  Bailey explains that The Secret Doctrine teaches that there are always three distinct classes of human beings — 1) Enlightened, Advanced Men, who were “sparked” by the Hierarchy; 2) Masses of ordinary people, with ordinary intelligence and spiritual knowledge, which are called, Middle Classes;  3)  Savage races of people who are so ignorant and so lacking in spiritual knowledge they can barely be called human. [p. 47-48]

This is pretty dishonest. Bailey was actually quite shocked by this fact. She was displeased with the current situation, which she perceived to be caused by authoritarian oppression of the poor. She was quite right in noting that there were “less civilized” people, and in a way there still are, because there were people who didn’t know how to read. She didn’t view these people as weak or evil, she saw these people as unfortunate and oppressed. Also, Master Djwhal Khul was not a demonic spirit, he was an unspecified being, but is often assumed to be an enlightened Tibetan. He’s also known as the Tibetan.

The Secret Doctrine always sets the stage for a Holocaust, because those who are “fully enlightened” –Class 1 — will soon be not able to tolerate the illiterate savages of Class 3.  Thus, Hitler began to plan his planned annihilation of everyone he considered to be in Class 3; he cast the Jews into this group, plus gypsies, all people of Eastern Europe, blacks, and all handicapped and afflicted people, because he considered these people to be in this situation because of their bad Karma of a previous life.  Thus, historians will tell you that Hitler killed 6 million Jews and 12 million “others”, all in Hitler’s Class 3.

Yet you provide no quotes, no doctrinal agreements, no evidence. Also, using classes in order to more easily understand a group of people is not the same as creating a hierarchy of people.

What does Albert Pike say about The Secret Doctrine?  “They [Gnostics] all claimed to possess a secret doctrine, coming to them directly from Jesus Christ, and different from the Gospels and Epistles and superior to those communications, which in their eyes was purely exoteric [can be made public].  This secret doctrine they did not communicate to every one; and among the extensive sect of the Basilideans, hardly one in a thousand knew it …” [Morals and Dogma , p. 542; Emphasis added]

I bet you did not know that The Secret Doctrine was SUPERIOR to the blessed Holy Bible New Testament, did you?  Once again, we can see that Freemasonry is NOT Christian!  When, o when, can we ever get to the point where people will realize that Masonry is, at the very least, NOT Christian?

That’s actually a rather appalling misquote, being as the words are actually different. Here’s the quote: “They all claimed to possess a secret doctrine, coming to them directly from Jesus Christ, different from that of the Gospels and Epistles, and superior to those communications, which in their eyes, were merely exoteric. This secret doctrine they did not communicate to every one; and among the extensive sect of the Basilideans hardly one in a thousand knew it, as we learn from Irenæaus.”

Here we can already see a key difference: the Gnostics saw the Gospels as merely exoteric, not purely exoteric. This, of course, implies that the other doctrines were esoteric. This, combined with the fact that hardly any of the students in any given school knew the doctrine, implies that it wasn’t an actual book, but rather a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, wherein God bestowed wisdom upon the student. That would be my interpretation, anyway.

Of course, you’re wrong in a more basic level as well, being as you mistakenly equate “secret doctrine” with “The Secret Doctrine”, which would be a mistake in both logic and grammar. This is further proven by the fact that the Morals & Dogma was published in 1871, while The Secret Doctrine was published in 1888. Pike obviously made no reference to Blavatsky in his book.

Finally, Pike wasn’t speaking for Masonry. He was talking about what the Gnostics believed, not what he believed.

Now that we know that The Secret Doctrine is shared by Freemasons, Nazis, and Theosophists…

…let us go further, to examine the great similarity of beliefs between Nazism and Freemasonry.  We shall print out the Nazi teachings in black print, and the Freemasonry teachings in red print, and shall preface the Nazi teaching with the letters, “NZ“, and the Freemasonry teaching with the letters, “FM “.

TEACHINGS OF NAZISM COMPARED WITH FREEMASONRY

1).  NZ — Is an offshoot of occultic practices and teachings — The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow , by Constance Cumbey, Huntington House, Shreveport, LA, 1983, p. 114.  FM — Albert Pike embraced the occult philosophy and teachings, saying, “The occult philosophy seems to have been the nurse, or godmother, of all religions … Christianity should not have hated magic, but human ignorance always fears the unknown.” [Morals and Dogma , p. 729-730]  Did you catch Pike’s last statement, “Christianity should not have hated magic …”?  All throughout the Bible, God condemned magic in the strongest possible of terms, and those who practiced it.  This single statement puts the bullet to the head to the lie that Masonry is Christian.

First of all, not all occultism is the same, this should be obvious, but just so were clear. Now, God doesn’t necessarily condemn all magic. For instance, God gave Solomon the gift of magic. Another instance would be Moses performing magic in Egypt.

2).  NZ — Taught doctrine of Aryanism and Aryan purity, and that the `New Age’ would feature an Aryan mutant `master race’ [Ibid.]  This Aryan purity stems precisely from The Secret Doctrine , as described above.  FM — Pike teaches the standard Satanic lie that the Aryan “came down from the slopes of the Himalayas”.  [Morals and Dogma, p. 714]

First of all, Pike is documenting the beliefs of others, like he so often is. He doesn’t necessarily describe to these beliefs. Second, what Nazis meant by “Aryan” isn’t what it originally meant. The word comes from the Sanskrit word ārya, literally “noble”, so the word “Aryan” refers to one who does noble deeds. The word was often applied to Hindus. Another root is Iran. Iranian literally meant Aryan, and thereby Iran meant “land of the Aryans”.

3).  NZ — Hitler was an initiate of occultic practices: yoga and Tibetanism.  [The Spear of Destiny , Trevor Ravenscroft, Samuel Weiser, Inc., York Beach, Maine, 1973, p. 25-26, 157.]  FM — a) Instead of the “Third-Eye of Yoga Freemasonry teaches the same concepts of the Third-eye, or pineal gland, under the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye [J.D. Buck, Mystic Masonry, p. 180-3]  b) Masonic author, J. Gordon Melton, said that American Freemasons were guided in their support of the American Revolution by the Tibetan. [The Encyclopedia of American Religions , Vol 2, Wilmington, N.C., McGrath Publishing Company, 1978, p. 256.]

The Spear of Destiny is a horrible written and sourced book. The author makes a number of silly claims, all of which are either not sourced, not proven or outright false. These include: Hitler had only one testicle, Hitler’s thirty-third birthday was in 1921 and “the third eye” is a valid method for historical inquiry. The book is fiction, essentially. Now, Hitler wasn’t into yoga or Tibetanism. His (limited) occult interests were with northern myths that he could use for his own ends.

4).  NZ — Believed in the Law of Karma and reincarnation [Cumbey, op. cit., p. 116].  FM — Eliphas Levi, 33 Degree Mason, wrote much about the Law of Karma. Reincarnation is most demonstrably Masonic. The Hexagram, the sign used in the Royal Arch of Masonry, is not only the most wicked symbol of witchcraft, but also symbolizes reincarnation. Masonic author, George Oliver, espouses reincarnation strongly in Signs and Symbols , Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co., 1906, p. 82.

Cumbey, again, is an untrustworthy source. He has no authority or sources for his claims. Eliphas Levi never was a Mason, certainly not a 33 Degree Mason. He was remotely interested in Rosicrucianism, but wasn’t a member. Look, honey, the hexagram can’t symbolize EVERYTHING. And of course, it doesn’t. It has nothing to do with reincarnation OR black magic.

5).  NZ — Believed they had evolved into a new/superior species by means of `spiritual disciplines’, `consciousness evolution’, and a new form of consciousness.  FM — Their belief in The Secret Doctrine , noted above in this article, demands men to believe that superior men existed, in order to rule over the “masses”.  This is the reason all secret societies, including, Freemasonry, teach that men must “evolve” in their consciousness to become Adepts. 

The Nazis didn’t believe in spiritual evolution, they were eugenicists. If they had, they wouldn’t have cared about ethnicity, would they? The Secret Doctrine doesn’t say that, for reasons listed above, nor is Freemasonry beholden to Blavatsky.

6).  NZ — Sought to institute a New World Order in which the Aryan race would control. [Cumbey, op. cit., p. 117].

We already discussed Combey earlier, so I’ll get to the point. The Nazis weren’t trying to instill a New World Order per se, rather, they were trying to expand the Third Reich until it would eventually engulf the whole world. The point is that you’re trying to use the phrase to tie these ideas together, put it doesn’t work that way.

FM — The best and fastest way for you to realize the depth of the commitment to the New World Order, is just turn your $1 bill over on the back and look at the Masonic pyramid with the All-Seeing Eye at the top.  The words toward the bottom, “NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM” translate into “New World Order”

Nope. Novus Ordo Seclorum translates to “a new order of the ages”.

This symbol was voted into being by the Continental Congress in 1787, in secret session, attending mostly by Freemasons.

First of all, the meeting wasn’t exactly secret. Also, only one person involved in creating the initial design (which ultimately wasn’t approved) was thought to be a Mason (Hopkinson) and even so there’s no evidence that he ever was a Mason. Here’s a more detailed look at the people involved in making the design from the book THE EAGLE AND THE SHIELD – A History of the Great Seal of the United States (1976) (p. 529)

“Because membership records for the Revolutionary period are scattered and imperfect, it is not possible to ascertain with certainty which persons among the 14 who participated in the designing of the Great Seal were Masons and which were not. Conrad Hahn, Executive Secretary of the Masonic Service Association of the US has furnished the following:

1. Definitely a Mason: Bro. Ben Franklin.
2. Definitely not: John Adams and Charles Thomson.
3. No firm evidence of a Masonic connection, although allegations of such a connection have been noted: Jefferson, Lovell, Hopkinson, Middleton, Rutledge.(NOTE: Due to new information, it is now accepted that Jefferson was NOT a Mason)
4. No record at all, so presumably not Masons: Du Simitiere, Scott, Houston, Lee, Boudinot, and William Barton (although he has at times been confused with another William Barton who was a Mason).

However, this symbol was hidden from the public until 1935, when 33rd Degree Mason, President Franklin Roosevelt, was told by his Secretary of Agriculture, Henry Wallace, that the Guiding Spirits had told him that now was the time to bring this symbol into public.

Huh? The symbol was hidden? Well, here’s a centennial medal from 1882 showing the reverse of the Great Seal.

File:1882 US Great Seal Centennial Medal Reverse.jpg

The symbol was always the reverse of the seal, it was available to anyone who cared to see it.

There’s no evidence at all to suggest that Roosevelt believed in “guiding spirits”. The same goes for Wallace.

7).  NZ — Nazism was hostile to orthodox and fundamentalist Christianity, seeking to replace the cross with the swastika. [Cumbey, p. 116]

Partly true. The DAP prosecuted a number of groups of people and organizations, including freethinkers and Freemasons.

FM — “… Christ, teaching the religion of Love … The Religion of Love proved to be the Religion of Hate, and infinitely more the Religion of Persecution …” [Morals and Dogma, p. 394.]

This really is something special. I won’t explain the quote in detail, because it should be obvious to everyone. I just hope the reader can appreciate the delicious irony here as much as I do.

“Sadly we look around us, and read the gloomy and dreary records of the old dead and rotten ages. More than eighteen centuries have staggered away into the spectral realm of the Past, since Christ, teaching the Religion of Love, was crucified, that it might become a Religion of Hate; and His Doctrines are not yet even nominally accepted as true by a fourth of mankind. Since His death, what incalculable swarms of human beings have lived and died in total unbelief of all that we deem essential to Salvation! What multitudinous myriads of souls, since the darkness of idolatrous superstition settled down, thick and impenetrable, upon the earth, have flocked up toward the eternal Throne of God, to receive His judgment ?

The Religion of Love proved to be, for seventeen long centuries, as much the Religion of Hate, and infinitely more the Religion of Persecution, than Mahometanism, its unconquerable rival.”

“Masonry is a system which has not the least shadow of support from history, from Scripture, from reason or from common sense, but, in fact, is diametrically opposed to them all.” [Edmond Ronayne, The Master’s Carpet {Mah-Hah-Bone), p. 25.

Once again you use a quote by a bigoted anti-Mason that has no authority on the subject. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to go through every idiot who wants to make a buck off of moral outrage.

8). NZ — The only reality open to human beings was the actual physical experience of Willpower. No word was more on Hitler’s lips than Will. Nazis further believed that a human could create new reality by the exercise of his Will. [Cumbey, op. cit., p. 31, 175]  FM — Albert Pike said, “The Will … are really the Father and Mother of all .. of creation …” [Morals and Dogma, p. 766.  Pike talks about “Will”, of either man or God, 20 different times in Morals and Dogma .

It wasn’t exactly the most common word Hitler used, but so what? Using the same word, a common word, mind you, isn’t quite the same as agreeing with the sentiment, is it?

9).  NZ — Believed man to be a bridge between this existence and a higher plane. [Cumbey, op. cit., p. p. 175]

Well that’s a tricky way to put it, because technically pretty much every (theistic) religion in the world would apply, including Christianity.

FM — Masonic author stated the belief that “… a Rainbow … was fabled to be a bridge leading from earth to heaven.” [George Oliver, Signs and Symbols, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Publishing Company, p. 14; also R. Swinburne Clymer, The Mysteries of Osiris or Ancient Egyptian Initiation, p. 185]

The key words being “was fabled to be”.

10). NZ — Believed in evolution, that man was responsible for his own evolution. [Doc Marquis, former Luciferian/Illuminist, now born-again Christian, author of “Secrets of the Illuminati”, by American Focus Publishing Company, Edison, N.J., 1993.]

I talked about Doc Marquis here. That’s not quite specific enough to make a meaningful commentary on. Nazis certainly believed in a kind of evolution, however laughable it may have been.

FM Albert Pike teaches at the 28th Degree, in Morals and Dogma , that, after the Creator conceived of the idea of His world, evolution was the means by which man developed.  [p. 767]  The entire goal of proceeding through the various 33 degrees of Freemasonry is to become more developed along your evolutionary pathway, a process they call Illumination .

Not quite. The degrees of Freemasonry don’t work that way and the process your talking about is called the initiatory process, not an evolutionary process.

11). NZ — German composer Wagner converted Jewish Jesus into an Aryan Jesus. The New Age has converted Jesus into an Enlightened Master who had gone through the full cycle of enlightenment and had become “completely illuminated”. [Ravenscroft, op. cit., p. 33-34]

Kind of. There certainly is this:

Even though Koot Hoomi isn’t overtly said to be Jesus, multiple thinkers certainly imply it.

Then there’s this:

But this isn’t as much New Age as just another branch of Hinduism.

FM — Albert Pike wrote that Jesus received perfect knowledge (Gnosis) after being brought back to life by Christos and Wisdom. [Morals and Dogma , p. 563-4, teachings of the 26th Degree]  In other words, Pike is teaching that Jesus became an Enlightened Master after He had been resurrected by Christos and Wisdom.

No, he’s teaching that he received perfect knowledge. Don’t bend the words that much, they’ll break.

12). NZ —Claimed Christian Good was evil and the Christian Evil was good.  In other words, the labels were switched, in order to confuse. [Ravenscroft, op. cit., p. 37]

Completely unsubstantiated.

FM — Albert Pike has created the most absurd switching of labels the world has ever seen, as he twists the Biblical account of the Garden of Eden.  Listen”  To prevent the light from escaping at once, the Demons forbade Adam to eat the fruit of ‘knowledge of good and evil’, by which he would have known the Empire of Light and that of Darkness.  He obeyed; an Angel of Light induced him to transgress, and gave him the means of victory; but the Demons created Eve, who seduced him into an act of Sensualism that enfeebled him …” [Morals and Dogma , p. 567, teaching of the 26th Degree] Can you believe this supreme act of calling good evil and evil good?  In the True Biblical account, God forbade Adam to eat the fruit; therefore, Masonry is calling the God of the Bible a Demon; in the Biblical account, it was Satan who induced Eve to transgress; but Masonry calls Satan an Angel of Light.  Now you know which “Light” Masonry pursues, do you not?

“The Evil God, Satan, is the Genius of matter alone. The God of Good is infinitely his Superior, the True God; while the other is but the chief of all that is the Enemy of God, and must in the end succumb to His Power.” Albert Pike, Morals & Dogma

Pretty much, yeah. To give you some context, earlier Pike was talking of a sort of dualism, where Satan represents matter and God represents all that is Holy and Divine. Therefor, the Christ would have both of those aspects present, he would be a physical man as well as a divine being.

13). NZ — The path to higher consciousness is a gradual, step-by-step process–from dullness to spiritual awakening. [Ravenscroft, Ibid, p. 49] 

As demonstrated by what?

FM — A quick glance at the Preface of Morals and Dogma tells you that Freemasonry is also a gradual step-by-step process, from “darkness into Light”.

So is painting a house.

 Additionally, substantial evidence exists that Freemasonry really has up to 100 total degrees, kept very secretly.

Such as?

14). NZ — “The symbol of the highest degree of the gradual process was the Eagle, hence the German Eagle.” [Ravenscroft, op. cit., p. 70

The German Eagle has been in active use since AD 800. It was hardly invented by the Nazis.

Note:  Ravenscroft was a practitioner of the White Magic arts, writing about Hitler, the Black Magic Adept]

Ravenscroft is another sensationalist who has been debunked time and time again.

FM — The most recognizable Freemasonry symbol is the Double-headed Eagle, at the very beginning of our article.  However, this Masonic Eagle is not an American Eagle, but the legendary Phoenix Eagle of Egyptian lore.

The roots of the Double-headed Eagle are in the Phoenix, yes. This, by the way, is the same Phoenix that’s been used to represent Jesus Christ.

15). NZ — “Believed in the Pineal Eye or Third Eye.” [Ravenscroft, Ibid., p. 74] For those who may not understand what the Third Eye is, occultists believe that a spiritual eye — called the Pineal Gland —  exists right between the forehead, just waiting to be “opened” by the person achieving “higher consciousness”.

Another unsubstantiated claim.

The women of India depict this Third Eye by a dot in their foreheads.

The Tilaka does not represent the third eye.

Occultists teach that, if a person were truly to achieve the highest degree possible in consciousness, this Third Eye would actually open physically, so all could see it.

Who does?

FM —  Albert Pike also taught the Third Eye, called Blazing Star.  “… the Blazing Star [Pentagram] in our Lodges, as we have already said, represents Sirius, Anubis, or Mercury, Guardian and Guide of our Souls.  Our ancient English brethren also considered it an emblem of the Sun.  In the old lectures they said: ‘The Blazing Star or Glory in the centre refers us to that Grand Luminary, the Sun …the Blazing Star has been regarded as an emblem of Omniscience, or the All-seeing Eye, which to the Ancients was the Sun”  [Morals and Dogma, p. 506; Emphasis added;thus Masonry represents the Third Eye in the center of the forehead as the Sun “in the centre”, depicted as the All-seeing Eye.]  Notice that Pike says that the Pentagram is the “Guardian and Guide of our Souls”.  This statement forever demonstrates that Freemasonry IS a religion, despite their repeated efforts to say it is not.

The All-seeing Eye does not depict the Third eye, it represents God.

Another Masonic author states, “These considerations lead us to an interesting topic, the Eye of Mind or the Eye of Horus, a subject elaborated in the Chapter on ‘Horus’ and conveying the idea of the ‘All seeing Eye’.  The end set before the Egyptian neophyte was illumination, that is to be ‘brought to light’. [Thomas Milton Stewart, The Symbolism of the Gods of the Egyptians and the Light They Throw on Freemasonry, London, England, Baskerville Press, Limited, 1927, p. 5; Boldness added ]

This isn’t referencing the Third eye either.

16). NZ — “Nazis were initiated into the Secret Doctrine of H.P. Blavatsky — House of Theosophy. Used its tenets to prepare for the Nazi Holocaust.” [Ravenscroft, Ibid., p. 91]

Factually incorrect.

We covered this aspect at the beginning of this article, above.  We quoted Masonic author, J.D. Buck, writing in Mystic Masonry, stated boldly that the House of Theosophy doctrines were precisely as taught in the Lodge“. The key doctrine of Theosophy was, and is, The Secret Doctrine, and it is espoused in Freemasonry.

J.D. Buck is widely discredited by Masons.

17).  NZ — Believed in White/Good Magic versus Black/Evil Magic. Nazis further believed that each person voluntarily chose which path they would follow. [Ravenscroft, p. 92-99]

Not really. The “occultism” some of the officers were into was far more basic, quite elementary, actually.

FM  — “The conception of an Absolute Deity, outside of, or independent of, Reason, is the idol of Black Magic, the PHANTOM of the Demon.” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 737; Emphasis was in the original].  Freemasonry teaches standard White versus Black Magic, and believes its teachings put a man on the right-hand path of White/Good Magic.

Which wasn’t actually demonstrated by the quote here.

18).  NZ — Did not believe that Jesus Christ was the only way to salvation. They did not believe in Jesus Christ, even to the point where they believed that Jesus experienced the “Christ Consciousness” at the Baptism in the Jordan River.

Depends on the individual, I suppose. Some of the Nazis were quite devout in their Christian faith, some were not.

FM — Jesus Christ was an “inferior god” created by Ialdabaoth, who had been created by the god Buthos sexually uniting with Wisdom [Serpent].  Further, Jesus Christ was not actually human, but only had the appearance of a human.  Therefore, His suffering on the cross was also an illusion, an appearance only and not real. [Pike, Morals and Dogma , p. 563-567]. This Masonic teaching about Jesus Christ perfectly fulfills the Biblical definition of Antichrist teaching, in 1 John 4:1-3.

Pike doesn’t state anywhere that Jesus was an inferior god created by Ialdabaoth. I’m not quite sure what you’re referring to when you say that Jesus wasn’t actually human, but I’m guessing that you talking about Pikes division of the material and the divine. If so, Pike is saying that Jesus had two aspects, a divine one and an earthly one. Therefore, Jesus was not completely man nor was he completely God.

19). NZ — Hitler worshipped gods Thor and Odin, even renaming Thursday, “Thor’s Day”.  Ravenscroft reported that Hitler committed the German war dead to the dark god, Odin, believing these “sacrifices” would guarantee Nazi victory.

There’s no evidence to suggest that Hitler was a Norse pagan theologically. “Renaming” Thursday “Thor’s Day” isn’t really renaming it at all. It’s quite clear that Thursday means… That’s right, Thor’s Day. Let’s examine a couple of other languages:

Finnish: Torstai

Swedish: Torsdag (same in Norwegian and Danish)

And finally, German: Donnerstag, where Donner=thunder, Thor is the god of thunder, therefore, Thor’s Day

FM — Albert Pike also worshipped Thor and Odin.  “The Sclavono-Vendes typified the Trinity by the three heads of the God TRIGLAV; and the Pruczi or Prussians by the Tri-une God PERKOUN, PIKOLLOS, AND POTRIMPOS, the Deities of Light and Thunder, of Hell and the Earth, its fruits and animals; and the Scandinavians by Odin, Frea, and Thor.” [Morals and Dogma , p. 551-2; Emphasis in the original]

No, he discussed other people who did.

Masonic author, J.D. Buck, writing in Mystic Masonry , says that Freemasonry utilizes the Swastika to represent Thor’s Hammer. [p. 244-5]

See above.

Masonic author, Sarah Terry, writing in her Eastern star book, The Second Mile, identified the gavel as another symbol for Thor’s Hammer [p. 73; Masonic author, George Oliver, said same thing in Signs and Symbols , Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co., p. 14]

This was also discussed earlier.

Finally, Thor is another name for Sirius, the blazing star, or the Pentagram. [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols, p. 326]  Pike further identifies Thor as the Egyptian Sun, and the Phoenician god, Baal. [Morals and Dogma, p. 368]  Now, finally, we know with whom we are dealing, since God condemns Baal worship and destroyed its priests, its temples and altars, and killed everyone who was worshipping him [1 Kings 16:30-3, 22:53; 2 Kings 17:16+]  Congratulations, Freemasonry, you are once again discovered to be worshipping the very same pagan gods which God of the Bible condemned and destroyed!  In fact, Thor is another name for Satan [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols, p. 326]

Right, so pretty much everything in that paragraph is wrong. Thor is not Sirius, or Satan, or Baal.

20). NZ — Stated that “the masses had been tricked into believing that patriotism was the highest ideal.” The highest ideal was one which went beyond national boundaries. Once this ideal had been achieved, all wars would stop and a millennia of peace would begin (Thousand Year Reich).  FM — Their constant promotion of the New World Order envisions the elimination of all national boundaries, fusing all countries into a United Nations.  Once this has been achieved, a superman will arise to lead the peoples of the world into a Millennia of Peace and Safety. His title will be The Christ, but we shall know him as the Biblical Antichrist.

Which Masons of course don’t do.

21). NZ — Triangles were thought of as aids in focusing the will into pure, blazing energy. [Ravenscroft, p. 163]

Again, evidence? Also, trigonometry must really be like concentrated evil. Thus far you’ve made it Satanic, Occult, Pagan and now Nazi.

We have identified 21 areas of common teaching, belief, and goals between Nazism and Freemasonry.

All of which are wrong or irrelevant.

The Laws of Probability are such that, if you have 12 areas of commonality, the chances of it being accidental are 1,000,000 to 1 against it.  Here, we have identified 21 areas of commonality.

The Laws of Probability dictate that you just pulled that out of your ass.

Then, we hear Masonic author, J.D. Buck, telling us that the teachings of the House of Theosophy was “precisely what is taught in the Lodges [quote above].  Since the House of Theosophy generally, and Madame Blavatsky specifically, had such a  huge influence on Adolf Hitler, we should not be surprised to learn that Nazism shares so much in common with Freemasonry.

Then we hear that no one takes J.D. Buck seriously.

Now you will be deceived no longer!  Now that you know the truth, the way in which you respond will determine your eternal destiny.  If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

And that was the last part in this series. (Not so) Fortunately there’s another series like this on the Cutting Edge Ministries website, and it would be cheating to not go over it as well. So, that will be coming… sometime.
