Is Freemasonry a religion? Do Freemasons worship Lucifer? Do they have "blood oaths?" Is Freemasonry a tool of capitalists or communists? Is it a haven for the "Illuminati?" What power does Freemasonry exert in the world today?
Freemasonry (also "Masonry") is the world's oldest and largest fraternity. Although it claims to be founded upon principles of ethical and moral philosophy, it has long been accused of sinister and wicked practices which it supposedly conceals from both the public and its lower-level members.
In this book my co-author and I investigate the claims and allegations of prominent anti-Masons, and discover a foundation built on deceptions, misrepresentations and tricks. By providing the reader with authentic texts and reproductions of original documents, the truth is discovered as lies are exposed.
This book examines the writings of John Ankerberg, John Weldon and Ron Campbell, the sermons of Ron Carlson and David S. Janssen, anti-Masons on the Internet, "Rev." James D. Shaw (who falsely claimed to be a 33d Degree Mason), T.N. Sampson and others. Also included is the complete confession of Leo Taxil, who admitted inventing the hoax of "Luciferian Masonry," and much more.
This third enlarged edition contains all the material originally published by the Masonic Service Association in its 1994 and 1997 editions, plus an additional 100 pages.
