George Washington the Mason

                                                       George Washington the Mason

There are many accesses to George Washington’s personal connections to the Masonic Lodge . David Jeremiah’s Wallbuilders  and Coral Ridge Ministries seem to desire to dismiss or downplay his extensive and serious involvement with a demonic machination that helped establish and permeate this country with Masonic altruism now being heralded by the worldwide false Christian church , just as the United Nations’ New Age Queen Alice Bailey prophesied fifty years ago .

An apparently fairly objective source online is , “ Freemasonry and our Founder : The extent of George Washington’s Masonic Associations “ by Lauren Quinn , George Washington University .

These sources can be confirmed by Masonic Lodge records available through proper contact with Masonic sources . David Barton claims to have a collection of  “ 100,000 documents that predate 1812 , including handwritten letters and works of George Washington , John Adams , John Hancock , Samuel Adams , and scores of other founders . He claims to have numbers of early American Masonic writings . Mr. Barton’s response to me in his letter regarding my concern about his apparent defense of Freemasonry was ; “ I can assure you that much of what is said today about the Founders and Freemasonry is inaccurate – only a small percentage of Founders were actually Freemasons , and most of those who were Masons were extremely inactive , and several others who were Masons resigned from the Lodge “.  David Barton’s  patriotic programs have usually highlighted a disproportionate number of Masons as exemplary Americans . Clearly he defends Masonry while saying he opposes it . Here are some statements in Lauren Quinn’s rough Masonic sketch of George Washington  that refute the supposedly knowledgeable David Barton , who appears does not want you to see the extensive association the Founding Fathers had with Masonry . The tenets of the Masonic Lodge are in essence synonymous with those of today’s ecumenical world church . David Barton and Coral Ridge Ministries do not convey this to people . Is it that they do not understand that is the case ? They understand the controversy . Why do they both defend Masonry?

Lauren states ;  “ Mr. George Washington was initiated as an Entered Apprentice “ and the entrance fee of L2 3s was acknowledged . Months later , on March 3 , 1753 Washington received the Fellow Craft degree , and on August 4 , of that year , he was raised to the Master Mason’s degree .

Washington remained close with several members of the Fairfax family who served as his patrons early in his career and his friends later . Over one hundred letters exist between Washington and members of the Fairfax family “ . 

Here is some additional factual information Lauren did not include in this study . When Washington was fourteen Thomas , Lord Fairfax  , a middle aged bachelor who owned more than five million acres in northern Virginia and the Shenandoah valley , came to America with his cousin William Belvoir on the Patomac , adjoining Mount Vernon . He was a man of culture who added much to the society of the section. Washington helped survey his lands . Fairfax helped  Washington obtain the position of public surveyor for Fairfax county , his commission from William and Mary college being dated July 1749 . ( Washington was about seventeen then .) For more than two years he was kept constantly busy . After surveying Washington visited Lord Fairfax in the Shenandoah valley where Fairfax had built a log mansion called Greenway Court after his English estate . Washington had access to his large library . The Fairfaxes were actively involved in New York’s Masonic Grand Lodge . They were tremendously influential regarding a fatherless young George Washington who showed great promise for the furtherance of the Masonic Lodge . George Washington was a worshipful Master who owned three of Anderson’s Masonic Constitutions . Point 1 of Anderson’s Constitution which Washington must surely have read or at least heard of revealed Masonry’s attempt to usurp Jesus’ deity with another god, the god of Masonry . This portion read ; “ Whereby Masonry becomes Center of Union , and the Means of conciliating true friendship among persons that must have remain’d at a perpetual Distance .”   Notice , Masonry , not Jesus is Center . Jesus ; Masonry that accepts all gods . Washington himself said that , “ The object of Freemasonry is to promote the happiness of the human race . “  This was not Jesus’ desire , but that all men should recognize their sinful condition and repent in sackcloth and ashes . Masonry and Washington worked for a better world not founded upon true faith in Christ . Washington had written ; “ Being persuaded that a just application of the principles , on which the Masonic fraternity is founded , must be promotive of private virtue and public
prosperity , I shall always be happy to advance the interests of the society and to be considered by them a deserving brother .” Masonry has much the same tenets as the Universalist New Church of Baltimore who lavished Washington with spiritual praise , referring to Washington as a brother in 1793 . In his return letter to these Universalists Washington echoed the Enlightenment rationalization of  “ the light of truth and reason “
triumphing  “ in this enlightened age “ . Masonic reasoning  here in early America was the same as that of the enlightened Masonic reasoning of Europe , mixed with a false Christianity . Washington wrote of his loyalty to Masonry in his address to the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts in 1797 when he said ; “ My attachment to the Society of which we are all members will dispose me always to contribute my best endeavors to promote the honor and prosperity of the Craft “ . Thirteen months before he died he declared to Maryland’s grand Lodge ; “ So far as I am acquainted with the doctrines and principles of Freemasonry , I conceive them to be founded in benevolence , and to be exercised only for the good of mankind . I cannot therefore , upon this ground , withdraw my approbation from it “ . Nowhere in the Bible is heaven referred to as , “ the eternal temple of the Supreme Architect “ , yet , this is the unbiblical Masonic name Washington ascribed to God in his letter to the Ancient York Masons of the Jurisdiction of Pennsylvania ; “… and that we may hereafter meet as brethren in the eternal Temple of the Supreme Architect “ .

 “ A laundry list of the most well known men of Washington’s generation are counted among the masons . Nine out of fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence , thirteen out of thirty-three signers of the Constitution , and thirty-three of the Continental Army’s seventy-four Generals all shared Washington’s Masonic affiliation . Thomas Paine , though not a Mason himself , wrote a pamphlet on Freemasonry “ .

Benjamin Franklin and Washington exchanged more than thirty letters during their respective public service careers “ . (Franklin was an experienced Mason whose Masonic influence was great .)

“ Much debate exists over the question of whether Washington was a deist or if he believed in the Christian God “ .

Washington believed that the clergy of different religions should work together for the benefit of their constituents and benefit of the nation “ .
( This was the 1717 Masonic ecumenical belief Washington was familiar with  .)

Washington was familiar with the goals and principles of masonry and comfortable with their meanings and implications . For this man , so careful in preserving a strong and consistent public image to sign his name to letters with so much Masonic content means he must have been comfortable with the message the masons were expounding and with his name being closely associated with that message “ .

Washington also defended American Masonry to those who sought to vilify it or to entangle it with deeds of other organizations “ .

“ William Scales argued that the country is vastly damaged by clerical and Masonic villainy . Scales hoped that Washington would extricate [himself] and [his] people from the clerical and Masonic villainy . These letters and Washington’s response to them show that even when Washington was not closely associated with a particular lodge or with the organization as a whole , he considered himself a Mason and trusted in the integrity and clarity of vision of those leading the Masonic organization “ .

“ There is also record of eight letters exchanged between Washington and the Alexandria
Masons over whom he presided as Grand master . The nature of the letters varies from one in which Washington says , “ I shall always feel pleasure when it may be in my power to render service to Lodge number 39 “ to another in which he thanks the lodge for all its well wishes on his retirement from public service  “…

“ Love , the other major principle of American Freemasonry , was described in terms of eighteenth century social theory as it applied to the American situation . This theory stated that love radiates in circles outwards from the family and the farther out the circle gets , the weaker the bonds of love . Masonry creates bonds between Mason and also between Masons and the people they serve through their charity , extending circles of love and brotherhood until they reach around the world . The Masons claimed that this would eventually make the whole world a community of love … In principle the fraternity sought to bring together the best of men in a society in order to improve the world around them regardless of their religion or nationality “ . ( If you cannot see this as a demonic machination culminating in a world of one faith , and thus , one government , you need to come to know the Bible’s Author .)

America’s early Masonry heralded the same clarion call as that of the United Nation’s New Age Queen , Alice Bailey  , who said these things in her book , “ The Externalization of the Hierarchy “ ; 

All past divine revelations have brought humanity to the point where ( spiritually
speaking ) man’s essential divinity is theologically recognized , where the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God are recognized ideals and where science has demonstrated the fact of an unfolding purpose and existence of a fundamental , intelligent Agent behind all phenomena “ .  ( pp. 400 )

The problem with this U.N. backed lie is that there is no brotherhood  between Christian believers and non- Christians . God is not your Father until you repent of your sins and truly trust Christ as your Savior . The U.N., Alice Bailey and Masonry want men to believe they are all naturally brothers .

Alice says these things on page 511 ;  “Bible knowledge must spread “ .  The only reason the United Nations wants Bible knowledge to spread is because the Bible had been corrupted long ago by two men who did not believe it to be inerrant . These men whose names were Westcott and Hort had socialist , Darwinian beliefs . All false versions continued to evolve through liars like these . The U.N. has helped Bible knowledge to spread , knowing the false gospel has been disseminated around the world for some time now .  Alice continued on page 511 , saying ; “ The three main channels through which the preparation for the new age is going on might be regarded as the Church , the Masonic Fraternity and the educational field “ . Alice was an unashamed occultist and lauded  “ The Masonic Movement “ , the “ All-seeing Eye “ and spoke of Masonry  on page 511 , saying ; “ It is a far more occult organization than can be realized , and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists  “ .

On page 513 of the same book Alice says ; “ when the new universal religion has sway and the nature of esotericism is understood – will be the utilization of the banded esoteric organisms , the Masonic organism and the Church organism as initiating centres . These three groups converge as their inner sanctuaries are approached . There is no dissociation between the One Universal Church , the sacred inner Lodge of all true Masons , and the innermost circles of the esoteric societies “ .  Clearly , the United Nations backs Bailey’s
prophecy of a one world church ; “ the One Universal Church  “ , which will be culminated through the demonic machinations of the Masonic Lodge .

Bailey echoes this sentiment again on page 514 , feigning understanding the Bible’s mystery to those of Masonic Mystery  ;  “ These Mysteries will be restored to outer expression through the medium of the Church and the Masonic Fraternity …” .

She insists again on page 517 that the Church and Masonic Lodge must work in tandem to help bring the antichrist onto the world stage ; “  Finally , Church members and members of the Masonic fraternities must familiarize themselves with the inner significance of the various rites , ceremonies , colors and rituals , and with work performed upon the floor of the temple “ . The temple Alice is inferring is the Masonic temple .

All of The United Nations’ Alice Bailey books suggest the same Masonic hopes held by Masons since the devil deceived them into thinking they can bring about world peace and harmony . The Bible says this will never happen until Jesus visibly returns and controls with a rod of iron . Only then will they beat their swords into plowshares as the United Nations’ Isaiah wall falsely suggests will happen before Christ returns . If you study the worldwide influence of the Masonic Lodge heartily backed by the United Nations you will be amazed . Masonic symbolism ranges from the star of David on the seats of Congress to the Pillars of Enoch in the streets of Jerusalem , and throughout Washington D.C. . Mr. Washington ‘s spiritual foundation was Masonry , as were those of the majority of influential Founding Fathers .
