Why Freemasonry and the principles of Masonic associations have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

Many if not all of the doctrines and practices of Freemasonry are at odds with the Catholic faith. Here are just three:

  • Universalism: Freemasonry teaches that the only requirements for salvation are performing good works and believing in a deity of some kind. All religions are equally valid, and mention of Christ is forbidden in the lodge.
  • False oaths: Every Masonic candidate must make an oath to freemasonry and its secrets, under pain of death or self-mutilation, and this while not even knowing all the “secrets” to which he is taking an oath.
  • Anti-Catholicism: Most Masons of low degree never experience this, but once one advances to the 30th degree, the anti-Catholic nature of Freemasonry is revealed. Upon initiation to this degree, the person crushes with his foot the papal tiara and the royal crown, and swears to free mankind “from the bondage of Despotism and the thralldom of spiritual tyranny.” The history of the Masons, especially in Europe, is filled with aggression and political upheaval for the sake of suppressing Catholicism.

  1. Masonry recognizes that God is the only authority of a free man. No man, pope or otherwise, can claim to speak on his behalf.

    • Dear Light Keeper,

      Your comment makes my case.

      Based on the facts of the matter, and the Bible, Masonry is obviously wrong, and the Catholic Church is obviously right.

      Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
      (Matthew 16:15-19)

      The above words of Jesus Christ, as duly recorded in the Bible, bestow on St. Peter and his successors the awesome and virtually unrestricted authority to bind and loose, on earth and in heaven, and to act officially in the name of Jesus Christ, in all things whatsoever, in perpetuity.

      Masonry refuses to recognize this. Hence, Freemasonry and the principles of Masonic associations have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

      This begs the question: If not Jesus Christ, then What particular “god” do Freemasons worship? The answer may also be found in the Bible:

      Now is the judgment of the world: now shall (Satan) the prince of this world be cast out. (John 12:31)
