  The Soul Ties of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerMonday, 14 September 2009 17:58 - Last Updated Friday, 24 September 2010 20:45   The Soul Ties of Freemasonry by Ed Decker  We may not call in question the propriety of this organization; if we would be Masons we mustyield private judgment. ‘To the law and to the testimony—if any man walk not by this rule it isbecause there is no light in him. ’— Pierson’s Traditions of Freemasonry  , p. 30.  That this surrender of free-will to Masonic authority is absolute (within the scope of thelandmarks of the order) and perpetual, may be inferred from an examination of the emblem (theshoe or sandal) which is used to enforce this lesson of resignation. The esotery of the Masonic  1 / 4  The Soul Ties of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerMonday, 14 September 2009 17:58 - Last Updated Friday, 24 September 2010 20:45 rituals gives the fullest assurance of this: once a Mason always a Mason is an aphorism in ourliterature conveying an undeniable truth. — Morris’ Dictionary of Freemasonry  , p. 29.  A Mason should know how to obey those who are set over him, however inferior they may bein worldly rank; or condition. — Macoy’s Masonic Monitor  , p. 14.  Disobedience and want of respect to Masonic superiors is an offense for which thetransgressor subjects himself to punishment. — Mackey’s Masonic Jurisprudence  , p. 511.  Under the head of Discipline is given a catalogue of fifteen prime classes of un-Masonic acts,of which this is one. It is so subversive of the groundwork of Masonry, in which obedience ismost strongly inculcated, that the Mason who disobeys subjects himself to severe penalties. — Morris’ Dictionary  , pp. 91,92  As a presiding officer the Master is possessed or extraordinary powers which belong to thepresiding officer of no other association Mackey's Masonic Jurisprudence  , p. 344.  The powers and privileges of the Master of a lodge are by no means limited in extent. - Chase's Digest of Masonic Law  , page 380.  An affirmation is not equivalent to an oath in Masonry however it may be in common and is notlegitimate in the working of the lodge. -Ibid. p.13.  The Covenant is irrevocable. Even though a person may be suspended or expelled; though hemay withdraw from the Lodge, journey into countries where Masons cannot be found, orbecome a subject of despotic governments that persecute, or a communicant of bigotedchurches that denounce Masonry, he cannot cast off or nullify his Masonic covenant; No law ofthe land can affect it-no anathema of the church weaken it. It is irrevocable. - Webb's Freemasons' Monitor  , p. 240.  2 / 4  The Soul Ties of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerMonday, 14 September 2009 17:58 - Last Updated Friday, 24 September 2010 20:45  This accounts for many strange and mysterious proceedings in our would-be courts of justiceand in the churches. NO law of the land (that is, civil law,) can even affect this lodge oath orcovenant. No anathema of the church (that is, divine law), can weaken it. Is it any wonder that criminals go scot-free when the sheriff that impanels the jury, enough ofthe jurors impaneled to bring in a divided verdict, enough witnesses drummed up to make theevidence appear contradictory, the attorneys of the prosecution and of the defense, and the judge on the bench, are irrevocably bound to the prisoner at the bar as sworn brethren, by anobligation considered paramount to all others, civil or divine? Is it anything strange that there is trouble in the church when the members are bound up, by thisstrong covenant, with saloon-keepers, irreverent scoffers, and other evil-minded men, in swornbrotherhood? Is there no escape from Masonry is the now all important question. The answer is Yes,absolutely Yes! The Word of God tells us that we can confess our sins (this oath boundbondage is sin) and He is faithful and has mercy upon us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  (KJV,I John 1:9)  What a promise of deliverance. No blood oath can stand against the Word of God!   3 / 4  The Soul Ties of Freemasonry Written by Ed DeckerMonday, 14 September 2009 17:58 - Last Updated Friday, 24 September 2010 20:45   (c) copyright, 2004, 2009 Ed Decker, all rights reserved   Saints Alive In Jesus PO Box 1347 Issaquah WA 98027 www.saintsalive.com email Ed at: ed@saintsalive.com   Your gifts to the ministry are tax deductible!
