The Religion of Secret Societies is Anti-christian.
Secret Societies are classified thus: (1) religious, (2)
social or insurance, (3) economic or labor organizations.
While the various secret orders have different names, rites,
forms, and obligations, they have a principle that is common.
The Grange, a more recent order, was cunningly designed
to catch the farmer. Their general secretary, Mr.
Kelly, says: "Many of our originators were Masons and
Odd-fellows," A. B. Crosh, author of " Odd-fellow's Manual,"
prepared the Granger's Ritual.

 There is a kindred spirit running through all secret orders. To condemn one is to condemn all. The different secret orders have each an authorized officer to lead their religious services, whom they
call Chaplain, Prelate or Priest. 

They also have an altar and
a ritual Their various services, installations, dedications,
and burials, would readily impress an observer that they
are a religious people, while some members of secret orders
claim their system to be only a hand-maid to religion,
a refined system of morality, or a mutual aid society. We
have before us a number of their standard authors, claiming
their system to be a religious one. We quote as follows:
"All the ceremonies of our order are prefaced and terminated
with prayer, because Masonry is a religious institution."
("Mackey's Lexicon on Freemasonry," page 369.) "The
meeting of a Masonic Lodge is strictly a religious ceremony.
So broad is the religion of Masonry, and so carefully are all
sectarian tenets excluded from the system, that the Christian
the Jew, and the Mohammedan, in all their numberless
sects and divisions, may and do harmoniously combine in its
moral and intellectual work, with the Buddhist, Parsee, the
Confucian, and the worshiper of the Deity under every
form." ("Freemason's Monitor," by Thomas Smith Webb,
pages 286 and 287.)

These authors emphatically declare their system to be
a religion,—the religion of Masonry. It is a fact that not
only the tenets of Christian religion are excluded, but even
the name of Christ is studiously excluded from their prayers.
On page 166, " Odd-fellow's Pocket Companion," by
Donaldson, we read, u using none other than the prescribedform
of prayer" Think of professed ministers, elders, bishops,
prominent divines, leaders of the people, offering up prayers,
leaving Christ,—their only advocate,—not once named.
To us it looks like sacrilege.

On page 226, " Freemason'sMonitor," by Z. A. Davis, the author, in giving the outlinesof the Royal Arch Degree, quotes the sacred words of the
apostle Paul, in 2 Thess. 3; 6-17. The name " Lord Jesus Christ," occurring in verses 6 and 12 is omitted, without
any marks of omission. The same omission in " Freemason's
Guide," by Cornelius Moore, page 137; also in "Webb's
Monitor," page 122. Such omissions are of frequent occurrence
by authors on secrecy.

Mackey, in his Lexicon, page 16, defines " Acacian ' as
" signifying a Mason, who, by living in strict obedience to
the obligations and precepts of the fraternity, is free from
sin." The Gospel teaches that.
" the blood of Jesus Christ,
his Son, cleanseth us from all sin." 1 John. 1: 17. "Without
shedding of blood there is no remission." Heb. 9: 22.
But Masonry, Odd-fellowship, and a number of other orders
offer a religion,—a system that saves from sin without a
Christ, hence no blood. Jesus says, " No man cometh to
7 V ' the Father but by me." Webb and Mackey, as quoted, teach the contrary.

Secret Societies Incompatible With Christianity from Chuck Thompson

This is an historic text exploring issues between Christianity and Freemasonry as well as other secret societies.  Secret Societies are often classed as well organized and well disciplined anarchists.  Anti government and anti religion.  We see this a great deal including in our own local government where we have a presence of Freemasonry well represented on the local Board of Supervisors and we see all of the ordinances that are in violation of state codes and Dillon rules as well as how often they break their own ordinances and state codes with no regard.  They use their code of silence not to speak about these violations or address them with the public when these violations are brought to their attention.

  They use their influence through Freemasonry to stay out of trouble as Freemasons never go against each other or there are very severe consequences.  The purpose of the present separation between Church and State as it presently stands is thanks in part to Freemasonry.  Freemasons can be found in just about every church order in the US with the exception of Catholics, who have their own secret society order, the Knights of Columbus.  John Adams was watching closely to the secret society threat to the US when he was involved in the political system.  That is coming soon.
