“… out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of ADONAI from Yerushalayim.”
(Isaiah 2:3)

If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Why One Can Not Be Both a Christian and a Shriner

Shriners International, also commonly known as The Shriners, or formerly known as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, is a society established in 1870 and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida. Shriners International describes itself as a fraternity based on fun, fellowship, and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief, and truth. There are approximately 350,000 members from 196 temples (chapters) in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, the Republic of Panama, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Europe, and Australia. []

Shriner FezOne of the most distinguishing marks of a Shriner is the Fez hat that he wears. So named after the city of Fez, Morocco, which has been the site of numerous documented massacres of both Jews and Christians by various Muslim conquerors. The Fez is a distinctly Muslim symbol and, at least indirectly, celebrates the Muslim conquest of the area.

The emblem found on the fez is of direct Muslim origin. It contains the Arabic pagan god symbols of the Crescent Moon and Star, originally the symbol of the Ottoman Empire, now an international symbol of Islam. (Before being selected as the demon that Mohammed would force his followers to “submit” to, Allah was originally the Arabian “moon god,” one of approximately 360 Arabic tribal “gods.”) The symbols are hung under a “scimitar” or an Arabic sword of war. This is the sword that has killed the “infidels” down through the ages under Muslim conquest.

Situated in the middle of the moon symbol is the Sphinx. This represents the Great Sphinx of Egypt which has its roots thoroughly in ancient Egyptian paganism and demonic symbolism. The word Sphinx means “the strangler” or as it is more widely used in Arabic, “the Father of Terror.” Perhaps this symbolizes that Allah truly is the “father of terror”?

The color red is believed by many to represent the blood of Christians and Jews spilled by the Muslim conquerors, particularly under the Ottoman Caliphate.

It is simply undeniable that the fez is a Muslim symbol, invented in Fez, Morocco, the undisputed site of many Muslim atrocities leveled against Christians and Jews.

The Shriner meets in a “Temple,” most of which have distinctly Arabic names. They are often built to resemble a Mosque. He wears his fez with the Muslim symbols on it. He takes his oaths and says his prayers in the name of Allah. Many of his secret passwords and code phrases are in Arabic, which he is required to memorize in order to be in the “order.”

Candidates for induction into the Shriners are greeted by a High Priest, who says: “By the existence of Allah and the creed of Mohammed; by the legendary sanctity of our Tabernacle at Mecca, we greet you.”

The inductees then swear on the Bible and the Koran, in the name of Mohammed, and invoke Masonry’s usual gruesome penalties upon themselves: “I do hereby, upon this Bible, and on the mysterious legend of the Koran, and its dedication to the Mohammedan faith, promise and swear and vow that I will never reveal any secret part or portion whatsoever of the ceremonies, and now upon this sacred book, by the sincerity of a Moslem’s [sic.] oath I here register this irrevocable vow, in willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon the sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming sun shall strike me with livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem [sic.] and Mohammedan, the god of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same. Amen. Amen. Amen.”

With this oath, “Christians” swear on the Koran and declare Allah to be “the god of our fathers.”

There is only one God of the universe, the true “God of our fathers,” and Allah is not the God of the Bible.

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the of of the Bible, the God of our fathers, declares:

Let them stand and present their case! Indeed, let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, announced it in times gone by? Wasn't it I, ADONAI? There is no other God besides Me, a just God and a Savior; there is none besides Me. (Isaiah 45:21)

The God of the Bible has an only begotten Son:

Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has cupped the wind in the palms of His hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in His cloak? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know! (Proverbs 30:4)

Those who trust in Him are not judged; those who do not trust have been judged already, in that they have not trusted in the one who is God's only and unique Son. (John 3:18)

… He has fulfilled for us the children in raising up Yeshua, as indeed it is written in the second Psalm, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.”(Acts 13:33)

Mohammad quotes “Allah” as declaring that he has no son:

“Now surely it is of their own lie that they say: Allah has begotten; and most surely they are liars.” (Sura 37.151-152)

“Allah is He on Whom all depend. He begets not, nor is He begotten.” [112.2-3]

Mohammad wrote: “Do not associate with Allah any other god, lest you sit down despised, neglected.” (Qur'an Sura 17.22)

By his own mouth, Allah is NOT the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! The Bible declares that Allah is, in fact, a demon.

“No, what I am saying is that the things which pagans sacrifice, they sacrifice not to God but to demons; and I don't want you to become sharers of the demons!”(1 Corinthians 10:20)

According to Masonic authorities, Freemasonry in general and the Shriners in particular are actually engaged in the worship of Lucifer, the fallen angel to whom the Bible gives the title of Satan. (“Satan” is his title, not his name. It is the Hebrew word for “accuser.”)

Albert G. Mackey’s 1921 revised edition of the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry states that “Masonry is in every sense of the word — except one — an eminently religious institution, that is in debt solely to the religious element which it contains, for its origin and for its continued existence, and that without this religious element, it would scarcely be worthy of cultivation by the wise and (the) good.” [Ed Decker, The Question of Freemasonry, page 3]

Manley P. Hall, in his The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, gives a clear picture of the “spirit” by which freemasonry is led, and the disturbing reason for all the secrecy and disinformation surrounding masonic origins and religious beliefs: “When the mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upwards, he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy.” [ ibid, page 6; The Oxford dictionary describes Lucifer as “the Morning Star; Satan.” Hence all the subterfuge.]

On July 14th, 1889, Albert Pike, as grand commander of “universal freemasonry” made clear the reasons for all the lies and secrecy, when he said:

“That which we must say to the crowd is [that] ‘We worship a God but it is the God that one adores without superstition’. [However,] To you Sovereign Grand Inspectors General [of the 33rd degree] we say this, that you may [in turn] repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: The Masonic Religion should be by all of us initiates in the High Degrees maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine.

“[For] if Lucifer were not God, would Adonai [the God of Abraham] whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, his barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonai and his Priests calumniate him? Yes [brethren] Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonai is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods! darkness being necessary for light to serve as its foil. As the pedestal is necessary for the statue and the brake to the locomotive. Thus the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonai [Allah]. Lucifer, God of Light and Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonai, the God of Darkness and Evil.” [ibid, page 7]

Shriners make no attempt to hide the fact that they are members of a satanic cult. Their places of meeting are called Nemesis Shrine Temples. Lets define each of those terms.

Thus their meeting places are “regarded as holy because of their association with their divinity“ and are “builndings devoted to the worship of their god,” who is “the long-standing rival; the archenemy.”
