Is Freemasonry Compatible With Christianity? by JD Hall
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. – Ephesians 5:11
Is it possible to be both a Freemason and a Christian? The question is really if it’s possible to be a member of two juxtaposed, contradictory and competing religions at the same time.
And the answer is no.
Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other…”
The notion that one can be a member or take part in two religions simultaneously is the error of syncretism, which is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as the “combination of different forms of belief or practice.” More precisely defined by Theopedia, syncretism is “the attempt to reconcile disparate, even opposing, beliefs and to meld practices of various schools of thought.” The Holy Bible explicitly prohibits the practice of syncretism among His people in both the First and Second Commandments, and elsewhere throughout Scripture:
“You shall fear only the LORD your God; and you shall worship Him and swear by His name. “You shall not follow other gods, any of the gods of the peoples who surround you, for the LORD your God in the midst of you is a jealous God; otherwise the anger of the LORD your God will be kindled against you, and He will wipe you off the face of the earth” – Deuteronomy 6:13-15
This should be understood by all Christians, but what may not be understood is that Freemasonry is, in itself, a religion. And not only is it a religion, but it is a religion starkly opposed the religion of Yahweh and His Christ.
