And it is fine to disagree with my opinion, just don't disagree with facts.
No, English wasn't my first language, but I do know that Jesus comes back in Christianity and that is why I highlighted that sentence.

Most people don't realize it, but the Shriner club is an extention of the Masons. In order to become a shriner, you must be a Mason. The symbol of the creasent moon and Sabre tie into Solomons temple.

How so? Solomon relates to Christianity and Judaism. That's the opposite direction that I'm attempting to go with this topic.

In order to first become Mason, One has to accept proclaim himself as a man of Christ in his initiation rights into the first degree.

Christ? I thought the Mason angle was their receptiveness to the idea of a higher power known many names.

Where are you getting this info from, btw?

I have researched the Masons since I found my Grandfather was a lodge leader.

The modern masons are more of a group of men who like to think of themselves as free thinkers. They are big on pooling rescources and donating not only to charities, but help furtherment of their brotherhood.

Well then, I value your contributions to this thread.

Shiners, huh? I didn't realize that there were extensions to masonry. The video mentioned the Bohemian Club, which has associations to the skull & bones fraternity. That would explain how they can target ambitious intelligent kids at esteemed universities and expose them to these cults early in a subtle manner. For anyone who didn't watch the video, this secret society dresses in black & red and performs a pagan ritual each year in front of a 200 foot owl. There's no doubt now that there is a satanic undertow.

There are many books that you might find useful. One in particular is entitled "Who is Hiram Abiff". I dont remember the author off hand, but this book gives a layout to who he supposedly was. Hiram is at the cornerstone of the mason rituals at all degrees

Also other topics you maybe interested in knowing more of:
The Scottish Rite
Masonic Symbolism

I don't think people should dive too deep into this stuff since you're not going to find a solid answer. The symbolism is interesting at first, until you start to notice it everywhere and in places you wouldn't expect (Hollywood for instance).

My father was a Mason - and IMO it possibly saved his life in a few ways , prior to his death.

I never got into it with him , but there is a brotherly nature to it, that help guide each other as human beings and helping society.
