Mormonism and Freemasonry are the Same

The Mormons are Freemasons at the highest levels.  Those Mormons who become card carrying Temple members even use the same handshakes to pass through their “sacred” veil.  They must perform these handshakes which they call “Tokens” and speak a password to pass into the higher teachings.  The funny thing is, how can a Mormon even think this stuff is real when prior to forming the Mormon church what could they possibly do to meet the requirements of salvation?  Are we to believe that prior to the Mormon faith that all souls were just lost?  Is that why they baptize their ancestors in absentia because they believe they were not born with the chance to believe so by using a proxy they are just fulfilling what they would have done had they lived after Mormonism came to be?

So, what are the Masonic handshakes and Mormon handshakes /Tokens?

Freemasonry ritual

The rituals are essentially taken from the Blue degrees of Freemasonry..

Ex-33rd degree Mason Tom McKenney explains on page 183 in his book ‘Tell me please..’

It was not long after Joseph Smith became a Master Mason that he got the ‘revelation’ for the secret temple ceremony. The rituals of the Mormon temple are so similar to those of the Blue Lodge that there can be no doubt that Joseph lifted most of it directly from the rituals of the lodge.
Many things are alike, but a few examples will suffice. Elements apparently stolen by Joseph Smith include the presentation and wearing of an apron, whispering of ‘secret’ information ‘on the five points of fellowship (i.e. foot to foot, knee to knee, breast to breast, hand to back, mouth to ear), similarities in the oaths of obligation, the penalties and penalty signs for each, and the symbolism of the square and compass, which must be embroidered in significant places on their ‘magic’ underwear.  

Masonic signs used in Mormon temple ritual.From ‘Christ, the Christian and Freemasonry’  by W J McCormick)
Yvonne Kitchen, on page 170 of her ministry manual ‘Freemasonry. Death in the family’  lists the following similarities with Freemasonry..

  • The all seeing eye
  • The wearing of the apron with the square and compass
  • The five points of fellowship
  • The special grasps and handshakes
  • Star and sun symbols
  • Penalties agreed to under oath
  • The throat slitting sign
  • The cutting out of the heart

The most famous of all Mormon aphorisms declares “As man now is God once was; as God now is, man may become”  This is again masonic thought.  Manley P Hall. [33rd degree Mason] on page 92 of ‘Lost keys of Freemasonry’ wrote, “Man is God in the making..”Mormonism and Freemasonry have always been inextricably linked at the leadership level.

Not only were Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum Masons, but so was Smith’s successor Brigham Young. As a matter of fact, the first five presidents of the Mormon church (its first five ‘living prophets’) were Masons.  – Tom McKenney  ‘Tell me please..’ Page 183

All ‘apostolic’ successors since (Young) have been Freemasons. Wilford Woodruff, Lorenzo Snow, Joseph Fielding Smith, and Herbert Grant. Masonic membership is still a requirement for members of the Mormon Church’s ‘apostolic’ hierarchy. According to Tom McKinney, co-author of The Deadly Deception, the Mormon hierarchy must be members of the Masonic Blue Lodge. In Scottish Rite Masonry illustrated, Dr. J. Blanchard states of Mormonism and Masonry: “The two institutions are morally and legally the same” – John Daniel, ‘Scarlet and the Beast’ page 42, volume 1


This is what Mormons are taught:

Is it secret or sacred?

Instructions given by Joseph Smith:

          “Doctrine & Covenants” Section 129:
1  There are two kinds of beings in heaven, namely: Angels, who are resurrected personages, having bodies of flesh and bones;
2  For instance, Jesus said: Handle me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
3  Secondly: the spirits of just men made perfect, they who are not resurrected, but inherit the same glory.
When a messenger comes saying he has a message from God (sic), offer him your hand and request him to shake hands with you.
5  If he be an angel he will do so, and you will feel his hand.
If he be the spirit of a just man made perfect he will come in his glory; for that is the only way he can appear;
7  Ask him to shake hands with you, but he will not move, because it is contrary to the order of heaven for a just man to deceive; but he will still deliver his message.
8  If it be the devil as an angel of light, when you ask him to shake hands he will offer you his hand, and you will not feel anything; you may therefore detect him.
9  These are three grand keys whereby you may know whether any administration is from God.

Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, Illinois, February 9, 1843. History of the Church 5:267.


What are the Masonic Handshakes and signs?  I will also give you examples in photos and a video of Jordan Maxwell showing his status.  Masons shake hands showing their level in masonry.  Here is the chart:

Two Sided Masonic Apron

Front and back of Masonic apron some are made of lamb skin

‘Jubela, Jubelo, Jubelum’

Entered Apprentice Due Guard and Penal Sign First, Jubela O that my throat had been cut across, my tongue torn out, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low water mark, where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, ere I had been accessory to the death of so good a man as our Grand Master, Hiram Abiff!”

Fellow Craft Due Guard Fellow Craft Penal Sign
The second, Jubelo O that my left breast had been torn open and my heart and vitals taken from thence and thrown over my left shoulder, carried into the valley of Jehosaphat, and there to become a prey to the wild beasts of the field and vultures of the air, ere I had conspired the death of so good a man as our Grand Master, Hiram Abiff!”

Master Mason Due Guard and Penal Sign
The third, Jubelum O that my body had been severed in two in the midst, and divided to the north and south, my bowels burnt to ashes in the center, and the ashes scattered by the four winds of heaven, that there might not the least track or remembrance remain among men, or Masons, of so vile and perjured a wretch as I am; ah, Jubela and Jubelo, it was I that struck him harder than you both. It was I that gave him the fatal blow; it was I that killed him outright;”

‘The Legend of the Three Ruffians’

The ‘Blood Oaths’ for the 1st 2nd and 3rd Degrees..

You must conceal all crimes of your brother Masons…and should you be summoned as a witness against a brother Mason be always sure to shield him…It may be perjury to do this, it is true, but you’re keeping your obligations.

Handbook of Masonry, page 183

Worshipful Master: * * *. (Strikes his gavel three times.)

WM: Brother ______, if you are still willing to take the Obligation, say “I”, repeat your name in full, and repeat after me.

Candidate: I, _____ ______, of my own free will and accord, in the presence of Almighty God and this Worshipful Lodge of Master Masons, erected to Him and dedicated to the memory of the Holy Saints John, do hereby and hereon solemnly and sincerely promise and swear that I will keep and conceal and never reveal any of the secrets belonging to the Degree of Master Mason, which I have received, am about to receive, or may be hereafter instructed in, to any person unless it shall be to a worthy Brother Master Mason, or within the body of a just and duly constituted Lodge of such, and not unto him or them until by due trial, strict examination, or lawful Masonic information, I shall have found him or them justly entitled to receive the same.

Question: Why does Freemasonry dedicate itself to John the Baptist and John the Evangelist but not have any mention of Jesus Christ in its ‘charges’ or rituals?

Answer: As an organization comprised of a plurality of religious faiths, it is not to be expected that any one religion should be represented except to deceive the naive and ignorant. The John’s are allusions or references to alternative forms of “christianity” in which Jesus Christ is man only, not God-man, begotten not made from God. These alternatives are called “gnostic”, heretical syncretistic sects that mix Hellenistic pagan religions with Neo-Platonism.

Question: Why does Freemasonry forbid the use of Jesus Christ in place of the ‘Great Architect of the Universe’ in open lodge but contradistinctly emphasise the ‘Holy Saints John’?

Answer: See response supra.

Question: Does Freemasonry have any relation to the heretical Johannite Sects of the Mid East known as the ‘St. John Christians’ who revere John the Baptist but despise Jesus Christ who they term the ‘Vomiter of Lies’?

Answer: Yes. The Johannite link is an allusion to a secret church of St John, i.e. a gnostic sect of Nestorian/Gnostic Christians who deny the Divinity of Jesus Christ. The use of the Johns is to lull Christians into acceptance of Freemasonry’s religious allusions as legitimate. They are not legitimate references, but deceptive pretences designed to seduce the naive. The latent meaning is that the order is the secret church of Jesus Christ. This is a lie, but the naive are allowed to conclude this if they so wish. Masons actually who seek light/understanding are lead into the darkness of moral corruption and ego defence mechanisms. They are allowed to believe and speak nonsense under the auspices of the order by men, their dominant masters who know better but must conceal the Truth from their submissives.

Question: Was not the Knights Templar accused of ascribing to the same Johannite Heresy, and does not Freemasonry promote itself in secret as being the direct descendants of the Knights Templar?

Masonic Ritual Footwork Their Jesus is not the Christ but a man only. It is an organization of blasphemy to normative Christians which stands in agreement with the abuse of the Christian Bible and St. John and denial of Jesus Christ as true God and true man. It is a fraud designed to deceive the public and masons into thinking that they can be masons and Christians too. That is not possible, save as a Christian heretic or apostate which denies the divinity of Jesus Christ. Note well that St. John omits the institution of the Holy Eucharist during the seder meal on Holy thursday, according to the Scriptural narrative. The other, Synoptic Gospels’ authors declare the divinity of Jesus Christ and that the sacraments through His church are instituted by Him for the salvation of all believers. Freemasonry is a counterfeit salvation into self-absorption and delusion that seduces seekers from their faith, so they use as a pretence and facade, the most gnostic of the Evangelists to hide the order’s animus to the claims of religion, any religion. The mason is gradually seduced away from normative morality into a new age world of false morality in which the member withdraws from his former life’s attachments and substitutes them with Freemasonry’s false promises. the member becomes thusly increasingly dependent upon the order as a parental surrogate and authority figure until the member is so completely dependent upon the order that he will lie or commit criminal acts on its behalf, for he has nothing else in this world or the next to sustain him and dare not oppose the peer pressure of his fellow masons’ retaliation.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will support the Constitution of the Grand Lodge of the State of Nevada, also all the laws, rules, and edicts of the same, or of any other Grand Lodge from whose jurisdiction I may hereafter hail; together with the by-laws, rules, and regulations of this or any other Lodge of which I may become a member, so far as the same shall come to my knowledge.

Question: What about the laws of the STATE of Nevada?

Civil laws pursuant to the obligation may be circumvented at will. A noticeable omission that subordinates obedience to civil laws at best and subverts them at worst, by alienating the allegiance of the member from the family and state and religion to the Order who becomes the members family and authority.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will answer and obey all due signs and regular summons sent me from the body of a just and duly constituted Lodge of Master Masons, or handed me by a worthy Brother of this degree, if within the length of my cable-tow.

Question: But isn’t Masonry Free?

Real Grip of a Master Mason Answer: There are initiation fees and annual dues to be paid. The true cost is the de-individuation of one’s personality by submission to the mob mind of the masonic cult. Instead of knowledge and liberty, the mason grows ignorant and bondaged within a guilded cage of degrees designed to dazzle the neurotic mind from realizing the process of debasement into which it has willing succumbed.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will help, aid, and assist all poor and distressed Master Masons, their widows and orphans, they applying to me as such, I finding them worthy, and can do so without material to myself or family.

Question: What about all poor and distressed NON Masons, their widows, and orphans?

Answer: Masonry is a cult based upon mediocrity and mendacity. It is elitist, racist and misogynist. Masons come firstly. The notion of masons advocating democratic freedoms and rights is pure nonsense. It is a deceptive lie. Their practical volume of the sacred law is the book for tyrants by Machiavelli called The Prince, or the egotistic selfishness of the philosopher Ayn Rand (a woman!), who advocated a might is right, laissez-faire capitalism with no regard for social welfare for the disadvantaged.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will keep the secrets of a worthy Brother Master Mason, when communicated to me as such, as secure and inviolate in my breast as they were in his before communication.

Question: Then why does Masonry claim it is only the “Means of Recognition” that are kept secret?

Answer: Masonic propaganda through the internet is a deliberate means of deception, by evasion, deception and denial of the Truth. There is much that they need to keep secret, and much fraud that they need to perpetrate to lure in new members. It is not what they say, it what they conceal that the public needs to know.

The High Sign Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not give the Grand Hailing Sign of Distress of a Master Mason, except for the benefit of the Craft while at work or for the instruction of a Brother, unless I am in real distress; and should I see the sign given, or hear the word spoken, I will hasten to the relief of the person so giving it.

Question: What about when a NON Mason gives a sign of distress?

Answer: No obligation required. Typical of an elitist and anti-social cult.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not give the substitute for the Master’s Word in any other way or manner than that in which I receive it, which will be on the Five points of Fellowship, and at low breath.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not wrong, cheat, nor defraud a Master Masons Lodge, or a worthy Brother of this degree to the value of anything, knowingly, nor suffer it to be done by another, if in my power to prevent.

Question: What about wronging, cheating, or defrauding a NON Mason?

Answer: See previous response, supra.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not knowingly strike a Brother Master Mason, nor otherwise do him personal violence in anger, except in the necessary of myself, family or property.

Question: What about striking or doing personal violence in anger to a NON Mason?

Answer: See previous response, supra.

Master Mason Obligation Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not have illicit carnal intercourse with a Master Mason’s wife, widow, mother, sister or daughter, nor suffer it to be done by another if in my power to prevent.

Question: What about not having illicit carnal intercourse with a NON Mason’s wife, widow, mother, sister, or daughter?

Answer: See previous response, supra.

Question: What about not having illicit carnal intercourse with a Master Masons SON?

Answer: See previous response, supra.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not be present at the initiating, passing, or raising of an old man in dotage, a young man under age, an irreligious libertine, an atheist, a person of unsound mind, or a woman, knowing them to be such.

Question: But doesn’t Freemasonry claim to be responsible for the concepts of Freedom of Conscience, Equality, Liberty, and Justice?

Answer: Any claim to liberty and justice made by the Craft are lies designed to dupe the ignorant. It is an elitist cult infested with dominants who lure and seduce morally weak individuals into dependence upon them as submissive masons.

Comment: Another Masonism it seems. Up is down and down is up.

Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not be present at the initiating, passing, or raising of a candidate clandestinely, nor hold Masonic intercourse with a clandestine Mason, or with one who has been suspended or expelled, knowing him to be such, until duly restored.

Question: You mean like how the Fascist P2 Lodge of Italy, Argentina, Chile, Greece, France, Switzerland, Britain, and the U.S. was counted as ‘regular’ by you because it was a ‘regular’ and ‘duely constituted’ lodge of the Grand Orient of Italy who you had granted ‘regular recognition’ to, but how you consider African-American Prince Hall Masonry ‘irregular’ and ‘clandestine’ because they are not ‘men free born and well recommended’?

Answer: Neurotic masons need to blind themselves to the facts of criminal activities of masons to preserve their dependence upon the masters of the order unperturbed by Truth. Denial and disavowal is their mantra.

Master Mason Mauled To all of which I do solemnly and sincerely promise and swear, without any hesitation, mental reservation, or secret evasion of mind in me whatsoever; binding myself under no less a penalty than that of having my body severed in twain, my bowels taken thence, and with my body burned to ashes, and the ashes thereof scattered to the four winds of Heaven, that there might remain neither track, trace nor remembrance among man or Masons of so vile and perjured a wretch as I should be, should I ever knowingly or willfully violate this, my solemn Obligation of a Master Mason. So help me God and make me steadfast to keep and perform the same.

Question: But Freemasonry isn’t a cult right?

Answer: It is assuredly a behavioural programming cult comprised of dominants and submissive in a symbiotic relationship of mutual exploitation.

WM: In token of your sincerity, kiss the Holy Bible on which your hands rest.

Comment: But remember Brother the oaths you took were only to other FreeMasons…

Masonic Lions Paw WM: Senior Deacon, remove the cable-tow; we now hold this Brother by a stronger tie.

WM: Brother ______, in your present situation, what do you most desire?

Candidate: Further Light in Masonry (prompted).

Worshipful Master: Let the Brother be brought to Light.

Comment: The Light of Lucifer…

Comment: Obviously ….

The Secret Grip of a Master Mason:

It’s a regular handshake, except that you press your thumb against the base joints between the index finger and middle finger of the man you are shaking hands with. It looks pretty much like any other handshake; only the men shaking hands can feel the difference. The correct response is to ask if this grip has name and then “syllable it” with the shakee until the password of a Master Mason is arrived at.


The Secret Password of a Entered Apprentice

The password of the 1st degree, or the ‘Entered Apprentice’ degree is ‘Boaz’.


The Secret Password of a FellowCraft

The password of the ‘Second Degree’, or ‘Fellowcraft Degree’ is ‘Shibboleth’.


The Secret Password of a Master Mason:

</p><br />
<p>Secret Handshake ‘Tubal Cain’ is the password of a Master Mason, which is the ‘Third Degree’. Some of the more obtuse and perverse masons wear a tie stickpin or lapel pin called “Two Balls and Cane” in the sicko shape of a phallic cane with a “ball” on either side of it. We don’t imagine they let their wives in on this one, apparently they are told to tell them if they ask about it that it has something to do with Golfing! “Brotherly Love” don’t you know. See the Tubal-Cain page for more information on what the Bible teaches about Tubal-Cain, and what that says about the nature of Freemasonry.


The Substitute Word of a Master Mason

During the blood chilling initiation of “being given the third degree”, the candidate is told the “Master’s Word” has been lost and instead a “substitute word” is whispered into his ear, “Mah Ha Bone”.


The Secret Word:

Not to be confused with the password. The Word (always capitalized) is so secret that initiates are taught it one letter at a time. First they learn A, then O, then M, and finally I. The Word is IAOM.

UK Hotel Lodge Room You never get a straight story as to what it means. As best as anyone can figure, it is the ineffable name of god, or some approximation thereof. The Word (or Name) is a tongue-twister. It takes some practice to get it right. The following pronunciation guide is from Masonry and Its Symbols in the Light of Thinking and Destiny by Harold Waldwin Percival:

The Name is pronounced as follows: It is started by opening the lips with an “ee” sound graduating into a broad “a” as the mouth opens wider with lips forming an oval shape and then graduating the sound to “o” as the lips form a circle, and again modulating to an “m” sound as the lips close to a point. This point resolves itself to a point within the head. Expressed phonetically the Name is “EE-Ah-Oh-Mmm” and is pronounced with one continuous out-breathing with a slight nasal tone in the manner described above. It can be correctly and properly expressed with its full power only by one who has brought his physical body to a state of perfection… Note: this “word” or letter sequences is very similar if not identical to the ones contained in prayers of the Gnostics in the Nag Hamadi Library recovered from the sands of Egypt in 1945 (not to be confused with the Dead Sea Scrolls recovered from the sands of Judea in 1947).


The “High Sign” or Grand Masonic Hailing Sign of Distress

The High Sign

A phrase or gesture which is only to be used in extreme circumstances is the Grand Masonic Hailing Sign of Distress, or “High Sign”. A Masonic defendant in court or “caught in the pinch” might bury his head in his hands and cry, “Oh Lord, my God, is there no help for the widow’s son?”

The gesture which can accompany this is for the mason to raise his arms over his heads in a “hands up” fashion and then lower them in three distinct stages pivoting his arms at the elbows until they are perpendicular to the ground keeping his palms down.

Any Mason seeing this gesture or hearing these words is oath bound to do anything possible to save the other Mason from danger, up to, but not including, the loss of his own life.

Do you think it’s just happenstance that all these leaders do this funky handshake? Let’s see some more shall we?

Now you know how and why Barack Obama though doing nothing remarkable in his life is in the position of power.

FDR and his masonic group

I don’t know if Bill and Kerry are Masons, but they sure do like wackos and shut up anyone on their forums from bringing out facts they find inconvenient to their agendas. I sort of put this here to be a nudge really because their sycophant followers will hate it.

Here’s a nice video:

8 comments on “Mormonism and Freemasonry are the Same

  1. I firmly believe all Organized reliegions are forms of Cults. One group always believe they are better or more right than the others. If people would go one on one with their God or higher power they would find they would not need to be blind sheep that follow the wolf.

    • I respect your opinion, but it lacks some understanding of human nature. If you found yourself in the presence of God and told the truth, would you keep it to yourself or desire to share it with others? I believe this is how all spiritual movements begin. For me, the question is whom did they really encounter?

  2. This was a really good analysis of Mormonism and Masonry, serenity, both of which are lies of Satan. I’d never really compared the two before, and somehow in my studies of Mormonism I missed the heavy influence of Masonry on its leadership (I was mostly focused on the ludicrous nature of Mormonism’s founding and its doctrines). Thanks for a very informative post on two popular and respected deceptions.
