Freemasonry and other orders

Masonic orders have contained the most influential men in many governments, and virtually every occult order has many Masonic roots.” –  Anton Szandor LaVey, The Satanic Rituals, Avon Books 1972

Freemasonry A Mystery School

Freemasonry and Kabbalah

“the substance of the Kabalah is the basis upon which Masonry is bulit, since modern Masonry is undeniably the dim and hazy reflection of primeval Occult Masonry of the teaching of those Divine Masons who established the Mysteries of prehistoric and prediluvian Temples of Initiation, raised by truly superhuman Builders.” – The Secret Doctrine: The Synthesis of Science, Religion, and Philosophy By H. P. Blavatsky, Annie Besant pg. 165

Freemasonry is not only a universal science, but a world wide religion, and owes allegiance to no one creed, and can adopt no sectarian dogma as such, without ceasing thereby to be Masonic.  Drawn from the Kabbalah, and taking the Jewish or Christian verbiage or symbols, it but discerns in them universal truths, which it recognizes in all other religions. ” -The origin of Freemasonry and Knights templar by Bennett, John Richardson, (1907) pg. 109

“The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of Atheism or Idolatry.

For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God PAN; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend. Gold, to the eyes of the Initiates, is Light condensed.”- Albert Pike Morals and Dogma, p.102

Freemasonry and Jesuits

“It is curious to note too that most of the bodies which work these, such as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the Rite of Avignon, the Order of the Temple, Fessler’s Rite, the ‘Grand Council of the Emperors of the East and West — Sovereign Prince Masons,’ etc., etc., are nearly all the offspring of the sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsay, Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and numerous others who founded the grades in these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the Jesuits. The nest where these high degrees were hatched, and no Masonic rite is free from their baleful influence more or less, was the Jesuit College of Clermont at Paris.”

“That bastard foundling of Freemasonry, the ‘Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite,’ which is unrecognized by the Blue Lodges was the enunciation, primarily, of the brain of the Jesuit Chevalier Ramsay. It was brought by him to England in 1736-38, to aid the cause of the Catholic Stuarts. “-Vol 2, Page 390 ISIS UNVEILED H. P. Blavatsky

Freemasonry and New Age

“The three main channels through which the preparation for the new age is going on might be regarded as the Church, the Masonic Fraternity and the educational field.” – The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy by Alice A. Bailey pg 510

Freemasonry and Rosicrucian

“In the Western World the lotus has been changed to the rose. The roses of the Rosicrucian, the roses of the Masonic degrees, and also those of the Order of the Garter in England, all stand for the same thing, the awakening of consciousness and the unfolding into full bloom of the soul qualities of man. When man awakens and opens this bud within himself, he finds, like the gold pollen in a flower, this wonderful spiritual city, Shamballa, in the heart of the lotus.” The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 32

The Rosicrucian influence is not only in the Eighteenth Degree of the Ancient and Accepted Rite, but also in the Craft Degrees, especially in the Third Degree.

Freemasonry and The Knights Templar

“The end of the drama is well known, and how Jacques de Molai and his fellows perished in the flames. But before his execution, the Chief of the doomed Order organized and instituted what afterward came to be called the Occult, Hermetic, or Scottish Masonry. In the gloom of his prison, the Grand Master created four Metropolitan Lodges, at Naples for the East, at Edinburg for the West, at Stockholm for the North, and at Paris for the South.” [The initials of his name, J∴ B∴ M∴ found in the same order in the first three Degrees, are but one of the many internal and cogent proofs that such was the origin of modern Free-Masonry” – Morals and Dogma p820 Albert Pike 

30º – Knight Kadosh, A.A.S.R., and The Knights Templar

“…the history of the Knights Templar is revealed to him. It is also explained to him that the Knights Kadosh do not fight to revenge DeMolay. Rather, they fight in the present world to oppose tyranny and to protect the weak.

And then, it is essentially left to him. He knows what tyranny is. He has been made aware that a king, a president, a congress, or a school board can enforce it. He has been assured that tyranny is not something that happened only in the past; it is something which happens every day in his world. He may encounter examples of it a dozen times a day, and a dozen times a day he will have to decide whether to let tyranny continue or to oppose it. If he truly understands the 30th Degree, he realizes that he has undertaken a very great responsibility. But a true Knight Kadosh also understands that if no one fights, the battle is lost before it starts.” –
Knight of Kadosh, or Knight of the White and Black Eagle by Jim Tresner, 33° Grand Cross

“The close relationship between Freemasonry and the original Knights Templars has caused the story of Hiram to be linked with the martyrdom of Jacques de Molay. According to this interpretation, the three ruffians who cruelly slew their Master at the gates of the temple because he refused to reveal the secrets of his Order represent the Pope, the king, and the executioners. De Molay died maintaining his innocence and refusing to disclose the philosophical and magical arcana of the Templars.” – Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall page 78

“This uninterrupted chain (modern Freemasonry chain from the Knights Templar) leads us back to the important Initiatic Schools of Egypt in which certain adherents had attained the highest degree of initiation; among them Moses, Pythagoras and Plato are believed to be among these high initaties.” – The Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraim Grand Lodge Untied States pg.9

“All historians and commentators agree that modern Freemasonry has its immediate origins in the master Mason builders of the Great European Gothic Cathedrals of the Middle Ages. These builders were themselves closely tied to the Knights Templar and to the Templar building associations, heirs to the Central European monastic associations and the Byzantine Colleges which, in their turn, had their origins in the Roman Collegia. Via this chain Freemasonry can be said to date back to the sixth century B.C.” – The Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraim Grand Lodge Untied States pg.9

The symbol is also associated with Freemasonry, specifically the Knight Templar degree of the York Rite of Freemasonry. The symbol is also known as "Knight Templars Blood-Red Passion Cross and Crown". The cross and crown symbol is often surrounded by the phrase "In Hoc Signo Vinces", which is Latin for "By this sign thou shalt conquer". This is a reference to the story of Constantine, who reportedly had a vision of a Chi Rho symbol, and a voice saying "By this sign thou shalt conquer".

The three primary bodies in the York Rite degrees of freemasonry include the Chapter of Royal Arch Masons, Council of Royal & Select Masters or Council of Cryptic Masons, and the Commandery of Knights Templar, each of which are governed independently but are all considered to be a part of the York Rite.

Freemasonry and Order of DeMolay

“As the 37th International Master Councilor, Order of DeMolay, it gives me great and personal pleasure to bring to this Supreme Council, 33°, the enthusiastic greetings of the thousands of active DeMolays throughout the world. We all sincerely appreciate the truly phenomenal support we receive from the Scottish Rite of the Southern Jurisdiction. DeMolay continues to exist because our beloved Masonic family believes in our cause, our purposes, and our high ideals. As an organization of young men, we are truly blessed with a great heritage—the ideals, ritual, and leadership excellence given to us by the Masonic Fraternity, the most respected association of men in the world. … , a lapel pin with the DeMolay and Scottish Rite emblems fused, showing the special relationship our organizations share and enjoy. “- Peter W. Brusoe’s remarks on October 6 to the Supreme Council, 33°

Freemasonry And  The Katipunan

“Since the founders of this society were Freemasons, it was Masonic in its rituals and organization.” –

Freemasonry And Catholicism

“The writer is not a Mason, and thus he is free to say what he knows without fear of violating obligations, but he is a Mason at heart, and therefore frankly opposed to Catholicism.”–FREEMASONRY AND CATHOLICISM by Max Heindel 1865-1919 pg 6
