Leading a non-Christian out of the lodge

If a person is not a Christian, they are headed to hell. If a Mason does not claim to be a Christian, or you can tell from talking with him that he does not know Jesus, it is first necessary to lead him to a saving knowledge of Jesus. Until he is ready to accept Jesus, it makes little difference if he is involved in the occult or not. If he leaves the occult organization, he is still headed to hell, unless he accepts Jesus Christ as his savior.

In the case of the Mason who claims he is a Christian, it is useful to ask questions which will demonstrate that he is not depending on Jesus to get into heaven. A question such as, "If you were to die tonight and God asked you why he should let you into His heaven, what would you tell him?" will yield good information, and may cause the man to think. The answers Masons give to that question makes it clear that the majority are definitely not Christians. If you can establish that the man is depending on his own righteousness for salvation, then you are in position to establish that "None are righteous, no not one." using Romans 3.

Unfortunately, many "Christian" Masons don't believe the Bible. Masonry teaches that the Bible is only one book of the many Holy books. The forward to a Masonic Bible explains the position very well:

And yet, like everything else in Masonry, the Bible, so rich in symbolism, is itself a symbol--that is, a part taken for the whole. It is a sovereign symbol of the Book of Faith, the Will of God, as man has learned it in the midst of the years--that perpetual revelation of himself which God is making mankind in every land and every age. Thus, by the very honor which Masonry pays to the Bible, it teaches us to revere every book of faith in which men find help for to-day and hope for the morrow, joining hands with the man of Islam as he takes oath on the Koran, and with the Hindu as he makes covenant with God upon the book that he loves best.

(The Bible in Masonry, Joseph Fort Newton)

Notice that Freemasonry teaches that Moslems and Hindus worship the God of the Bible. If a man has embraced Masonic teaching, leading him to Jesus is not easy. However, it is not your responsibility. Your responsibility is only to witness. The Holy Spirit must do the convicting, if it is to occur.

Stress the exclusivity of Christianity

When we lead a Mason or other occultist to Jesus, it is necessary to inform him that he has to make a clean break with all aspects of the occult and all elements of false religion in order to become a Christian. Occult teachings include teachings which reveal supposed hidden or secret knowledge. That characterizes the ritualistic teaching of Freemasonry precisely. We would not be reluctant to tell a Buddhist that he cannot become a Christian unless he makes a clean break with Buddhism. Is there any reason to withhold the corresponding truth when witnessing to a Mason or other occultist? If we remove the requirement of repentance, we alter the gospel.

In the case of a Buddhist who is becoming a Christian we would simply point out the nature of the God of the Bible and the Buddhist concept of God. We would also stress the exclusive nature of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and explain that Buddhism has a false plan of salvation. It is vital to make it clear that a man cannot be both a Buddhist and a Christian at the same time. Why is this necessary? Many Buddhists don't think that Buddhism is a religion! Christian missionaries in Buddhist countries have to deal with this issue repeatedly. Freemasonry is similar in that many Masons deny that Freemasonry is a religion, even though Freemasonry has a plan of salvation and another savior.

In all of our efforts at evangelism, prayer is a vital part. If it appears that nothing happened, don't necessarily believe it. If you are able to plant some seed, another may water and yet another may see the increase.
