The Masonic Trowel

Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr

When Freemasonry is traced back to its source, we discover three ideas which are common to most oriental cults:

1. - The initiation process:
2 .- The Lodge secrets, and;
3. - The penal features dealing with punishment of recalcitrant Lodge members.

From the very beginning of our search for truth, we will discover that the character of Freemasonry and Christianity are diametrically opposed.

Where Christianity wins followers by propagating the truth, taught by its founder, Jesus Christ, Masonry aims to preserve and propagate its faith by keeping secret. It does not rely on the power of its doctrines to do this, since it does not present its claims openly and honestly, nor does it meet its opponents in an open and fair discussion. Like Judaism, from which it sprang, it instead attacks its opponents secretly, through institutions it controls, such as the media. On the basis of its own confusion, it cannot stand the light of truth and exposure. The Christian, on the other hand, is told to "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man', (Col. 4:6).

To protect its secrecy, Masonry found it necessary to install a catalog of oaths and terrible covenants, which were set up for the purpose of destroying those who sought to expose their nefarious activities and terrify its own members into a strict and total obedience to the Masters of the Lodge.

According to their own admissions, which can be found in the Masonic oaths, they employ any means of discrediting or destroying their opponents. They may with impunity, through false testimony, discredit or completely destroy an opponent's reputation, may discomfort, or even completely annihilate them. This extends to the point of committing murder, if that is deemed necessary for the protection of the Lodge, as was the case in the murder of William Morgan in the 1820's. He was assassinated on order of the Lodge authorities, when he sought to expose them.

Masons infer that they are rendering service to the GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE, when they destroy any one who seeks to expose them. This is a murderous spirit, similar to that found among some of the extremists in it.

Masons are willing, according to their oaths, to inflict barbarous and horrible penalties on any brother Mason who strays from their way and exposes them. This reveals the true spirit which pervades Freemasonry and which most certainly does not exhibit the "fruits of the Spirit," which are the attributes of true Christians (See Gal. 5:22, 23).

When it becomes necessary to enforce obedience to an idea, in order to promulgate it, you can automatically know that idea is wrong. If, as some members of Masonry aver, Masonry does not have this cruel, vindictive spirit, then why do they exhibit it in their oaths which cause them to become members? That most Masons believe these oaths, is an established fact, for very few leave the Order, once they become members. This is not because they know their way is true, but because they fear the consequences. It takes an extremely brave man to leave Freemasonry, and then expose it!

That the threats implied in the Masonic oaths are made in good faith, can be ascertained from the past. French, Italian and Spanish Masons cited before their Masonic tribunals for breaking their oaths, were the Emperor Napoleon III; the Emperor of Germany; the Crown Prince of Germany; a Pope and Marshall Prim. of France. These men paid no attention to the citations made against them by the Lodge and all were marked for assassination. (See Hecthorn, Vol. II, p. 108).

The murder of William Morgan, in obedience to a Masonic decree, almost destroyed Masonry in America in 1826. Judge Whitney of the Belvedere Lodge in Illinois, escaped assassination at the hands of Master Masons, only because they feared public vengeance if they killed this popular man.

The very initiation into the Third Degree, is a dramatic "acting out" of a symbolic murder. The candidate for all intents and purposes is murdered by these ruffians, who inflict on him the horrible penalties inherent in the first three degrees. When these are apprehended, they are theoretically executed by having the penalties of the first three degrees inflicted on them. This is done to impress the Masonic candidate with the seriousness of his pledge and the vengeance which will follow if he breaks his oath. The Knights of Kadash deliberately promise to commit murder on any traitor to Freemasonry.

Judge Whitney, who was mentioned earlier, testified in the case of a Miss Ellen Slade, who had been murdered in Boone County Illinois for resisting the law laid down by the Grand Lodge of Illinois. In his testimony, Whitney said:

"The resistance of the law by Masons, in the case of the death of Miss Slade, was well known to the Grand Lodge and their committees, who approved it and this Lodge (Belvedere #6, F.A.M.) has quietly acquiesced; and having their charter restored by the present Grand Master, several of the most culpable of its members have been elected to the most important positions in the Lodge." (UNQ).

This action was taken by Master Masons who had full knowledge of the crime they were covering up, as well adequately proven in court. These murderers resisted the law of the State of Illinois and escaped its consequences through the machinations of high ranking Masons in the Judicial system.

Pres. C. G. Finney, himself a Mason, characterized Masonry as follows:

"Freemasonry has no mercy, but swears candidates to avenge violations of Masonic obligations, the most unlawful and un-Christian deeds; to deliver each other from difficulty, whether right or wrong; to unduly favor Masons in business transactions. It's members are sworn to retaliate, and persecute unto death, the violators of Masonic obligations." (Wagner's Freemasonry -An Interpretation- p.554).

Because of the Masonic murder of William Morgan, facts came to light by testimony of witnesses before the courts; by action of the New York State Legislature, and the defense of Morgan's assassins by the Grand Lodge of Rhode Island. All this was led by John Quincy Adams initiating an investigation of Masonry, from a purely patriotic viewpoint. Here are his views as expressed in his ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF MASSACHUSETTS. This is only part of his address:

"I saw a code of Masonic legislation adopted to prostrate every principle of justice and to corrupt every sentiment of virtuous feeling in the soul of him who bound his allegiance to it. I saw the practice of common honesty, of Christian benevolence, even the abstinence of atrocious crimes, limited exclusively by lawless oaths and barbarous penalties to the sacred relations between the brotherhood of the craft. I saw slander organized into a secret widespread and affiliated agency, fixing its invisible fangs into the hearts of its victims, sheltered by the darkness of the Lodge room, and armed with never ceasing penalties of death. I saw self-invoked imprecations of throats cut from ear to ear; of hearts and vitals torn out and cast off...

I saw wine drunk from a human skull with solemn invocations of all the sins of its owner upon the head of him who drank it. I saw a wretched human man damning himself to eternal punishment when the last trump shall sound, as a guarantee for idle and ridiculous promises. Such are the laws of Masonry; such are their indelible character ... a conspiracy of the few, against the equal rights of many! Anti-republican in its sap from the first blushing of the summit of the plant to the deepest fiber of its roots."1

The experience of Elder David Vernard, an influential and well-esteemed minister of the Baptist Church is a confirmation of what I have been trying to say. As a Master Mason, he was required by the Master to attend a meeting where he was charged with making derogatory remarks against the Lodge. For several hours he was harangued, harassed and insulted. When he was finally allowed to defend himself, he told how he had spoken against the Lodge, because he had the right of free opinion and freedom of speech and liberty of the press all of which were God-given rights which could not be controlled by the Lodge. He stated that these rights had been purchased by the blood of his fathers. Yet his request to defend himself was refused.

Soon after this he was expelled from the Lodge and a vicious campaign of vilification was launched against him. Professing ministers of the Gospel, joined with drunkards, infidels and prostitutes in a drive to destroy him. He was warned by his friends that he should go armed for his protection, since there was a plot afoot to murder him and so strong and dirty was the Masonic campaign against him, that his friends would not allow him to travel alone, even from the parsonage to the church.

Once again I repeat the words of Horace Mann: (It must be an evil project which will not allow for open discussion." This is the same means organized Jewry uses to stifle opposition. They act through their strong-arm KGB, the Anti-Defamation League, and its bully boys the JEWISH DEFENSE LEAGUE.

A few years ago I was invited to speak at the LaPorte, Colorado, Church of Christ, by a young pastor, Pete Peters, who was just becoming acquainted with the Identity message and the Jewish problem. We were subjected to unbelievable harassment, most of it coming from the Fort Collins Ministerial Alliance and the Denver A.D.L. The Alliance threatened Pastor Peters with dire trouble unless he had me leave town at once. I was accused of being "anti-Semitic, a Fascist) a Neo-Nazi, and a Hate Monger." However, no one from the Ministerial Alliance or the ADL had ever bothered to come and hear me speak. It was all hearsay.

My first message, on Sunday night was on my deliverance from a Communist prison in Korea in 1948. It was in this prison that I was "saved" and promised God to do everything within my power to see that the terrible things I had seen in South Korea would never happen here. I did not mention Jews, Jewry, or Zionism in this message. The meeting ended about 10 p.m.

The next morning, a Letter to the Editor appeared in the Denver Post, some 70 miles away. It was written by a Jewish lady in which she expressed shock at the terrible anti-Semitic language I used and said that my statements reminded her of Adolf Hitler. Now anyone with any common sense, would know that a letter written after 10 p.m. the night before, could never arrive in Denver in time for a midnight "deadline." It was quite obvious this letter had been written before I arrived in La Porte. Interestingly enough, there had been no Jewish lady at the Sunday night meeting.

Pastor Peters offered to allow the Alliance members to listen to the tapes of my messages, since none had been in attendance. None of them desired to do this, although all their complaints were based on hearsay. When I arrived home, I found a letter from the Denver JEWISH DEFENSE LEAGUE in which they stated: "You Nazi S.O.B., if you ever come back to Denver we will blow you away!" Notification to the Denver police of this threat brought absolutely no action.

Pastor Peters, not to be intimidated, scheduled me for more meetings in the fall and took out advertisements in the Denver Post, stating when I would be there and the essence of my messages, which this time were definitely Zionist exposures. I offered to host a breakfast for members of the Ministerial Alliance, where we could talk over our differences. None accepted. It became quite evident that they did not know what I preached, that they did not care what I preached, but that they were being led around by the nose by the ADL.

This is the Masonic mentality, which they learned from their Zionist mentors "'for men love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil" (John 3:19).

Masonry, like Judaism, is a system of ethics and religion, in which there is some truth, but it is shrouded and mutilated by the evil it conceals. It is a system held and defended by men of learning; men of wealth and power; men of liberal tendencies; men who are pious "having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (1 Tim. 3:5). The Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 1:26, 27, said:

26 "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 For God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the mighty."

These men wallow around in the indulgences which Freemasonry allows them to enjoy, but which must never be spoken of in public. Any system of ethics may stand high in the eyes of men; it may even seem to be a thing of beauty to them. But if it repudiates the Law of God, no matter how charming it may seem to the beholder, it is a thing of hidden danger and evil. Any system which gives license to human lust, will ruin souls and kindle revolution against God. This is always fatal to the rebel!

Freemasonry is a danger to the freedom of America and to the welfare of the Christian community. As long as it maintains its ties with Zionism, it will be a danger to freedom and justice, for it is impossible for a people to have freedom and justice without having God's blessing

These blessings do not come when men set themselves in rebellion against God. In Psalm 2:1-4, we read:

1. "Why do the heathen (nations) rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers (Masonic and Jewish alike) take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His Anointed, saying;
3. 'Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.'
4. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision (contempt)."
