Research is vital
A very important part of the work that is continuously being done by those of us involved in counter-cult ministries, such as Ex Masons For Jesus, is research.
You have no doubt concluded that the information presented on this website is based not only on personal knowledge and experience, but upon facts which are supported with authentic documentation. The documented factual information we have gleaned over the years has primarily come from Masonic ritual books, monitors, etc. But there are additional publications, which we are finding to be more useful all the time in our endeavors of revealing the truth about the darkness of the lodge.
Critical mass is an expression which science applies to nuclear reactions. A sustainable reaction cannot occur until a critical amount of fisionable material is brought into contact. In a sense, the concept of critical mass can be applied to knowledge of hidden things. Until documentation to clarify various parts of a hidden, or allegorical teaching, is available the deeper meaning is not as easily perceived. For example, if you have read our article, Death, Burial, and Resurrection in the Lodge, you have already seen that a Masonic Bible, an officers manual, and a blue lodge handbook were very instrumental in revealing the deeper meaning of the Hiramic Legend, along with ritual and monitorial information. Independently, they were of significantly less value. When brought together, interaction was possible.
Further, we have found that most grand lodge jurisdictions issue what is usually known as a mentor's manual. Generally, these manuals are guides that are to be used as a means of "educating" new members. In the back of many of these manuals, can be found a list of recommended writings, such as Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia, The Builders, Mackey's Revised Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, etc. These mentor's manuals are a valuable source of information because they document which writings are considered credible by Grand Lodges. Grand Lodges can't escape the endorsements which they have placed in print.
You can help
If there are any Masonic documents in your possession, we would like to
see them put to use in witnessing to the body of Christ about the incompatibilities
between Freemasonry and the Christian faith.
