THE CUTTING EDGE
We present this letter without any change or any editorializing. However, at the end of this article, we spend a few moments amplifying Reverend Taylor’s many reasons for getting out of Freemasonry, as his reasons parallel our articles on the truth of Freemasonry. His testimony also greatly parallels the other testimonies we have received from other former members.
We encourage you to read his testimony carefully, and with an open mind, for the stakes are HUGE --your eternal soul, either in Heaven or Hell.
TESTIMONY FROM A FORMER CHAPLAIN IN FREEMASONRY
“A Grand Chaplain speaks out”, by Harmon R. Taylor GRAND LODGE FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK GRAND CHAPLAIN 1983-1984
REV. HARMON R. TAYLOR
Dear Servant of God,
Knowing that you desire to serve the Lord with all your heart, I share this letter with you. Perhaps you have been struggling with the same situation. On November 22nd, I sent the facts contained in this letter to all Masonic bodies of which I am a member. I invite you to prayerfully read it. It will explain why I as a Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York am requesting a demit from all bodies of the Masonic fraternity. There is much more that I could share. I would be happy to share more if it will help you in the Lord’s service.
Many have asked me if Freemasonry is a religion. I have always responded “No”. Others have told me that it is a religion. Study has revealed the fact that learned writers in the fraternity say MASONRY IS A RELIGION. The Lord Jesus Christ said, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses, every word is established” (Matthew 18:16). In order to be brief, I will quote only four Masonic authorities that masonry is a religion.
Albert Mackey, one of the most well known Masonic authorities, wrote in A LEXICON OF FREEMASONRY (Pg. 402): “The religion, then, masonry, is pure theism…”.
Albert Pike, the most important of all American Masonic authorities, wrote in MORALS AND DOGMA (Pg. 213-214): “Every Masonic lodge is a temple of religion, and its teachings are instructions in religion… this is true religion revealed to the ancient patriarchs; which masonry has taught for many centuries, and which it will continue to teach as long as time endures.”
J.S.M. Ward, a Masonic authority who has written several important books on masonry, wrote in his book FREEMASONRY: ITS AIMS & IDEALS (Pg.185): “I consider freemasonry is a significantly organized school of mysticism to be entitled to be called a religion.” Ward continues on page 187, “Freemasonry… taught that each man can, by himself, work out his own conception of god and thereby achieve salvation.” It holds that there are many paths that lead to the throne of the all-loving father which all start from a common source. Freemasonry believes, according to Ward, "that though these paths appear to branch off in various directions, yet they all reach the same ultimate goal, and that to some men, one path is better and to other, another.
