Gnosticism: Hinduism’s Alias
— “Orthodox Christians confess that “Jesus is Lord” in their Nicene Creed, but Gnostics confess no such belief. Rather than adapting to the Orthodox faith that Jesus was God incarnate, Pagels explains that the Gnostics understood the concept that “[Jesus] was a spiritual being who adapted himself to human perception”. The Gnostics present Jesus “not as Lord, but as spiritual guide,” who came to show his followers how to accomplish enlightenment–or achieve moksha. Furthermore, a true Gnostic would refer to himself as Jesus’ twin spiritually because “when [a] disciple attains enlightenment, Jesus no longer serves as spiritual master: the two have become equal–even identical”. In learning their true identity, Gnostics discover that the Father’s better half is none other than–drum roll, please–the Holy Spirit, according to the Apocryphon of John. This particular Gnostic gospel presents an alternate version of the holy trinity, featuring God, the Father; God, the Mother; and their son, Jesus. “‘Christ, therefore, was born of a virgin’ (that is, from the Spirit)” explains Pagels in The Gnostic Gospels. This shows the Gnostic belief that, although he “was a spiritual being,” Jesus wrapped himself in a human cocoon, being the product of both Mary and Joseph. The Gnostic belief in Jesus, even this unconventional one, slightly separates Gnosticism from Hinduism, but the separation seems a mere crack in the foundation these two religions sit on in comparison to the canyon between Orthodoxy and Gnosticism.”

The Gnostic Gospels and Vedanta
— “There is no philosophy in the world that is not indebted to Kapila. Pythagoras came to India and studied this philosophy and that was the beginning of the philosophy of the Greeks. Later, it formed the Alexandrian school, and still later, the Gnostic. It became divided into two, one part went to Europe and Alexandria, and the other remained in India, and out of this the system of Vyasa was developed. The Sankhya philosophy of Kapila was the first rational system that the world ever saw. (Vivekananda, 1983)”

— “To the extent that Buddha taught the existence of evil inclinations that remain unconquered, or that require special spiritual knowledge to conquer, Buddhism has also qualified as Gnostic.”

The Gnostic WorldFreemasonry: gnostic images
— “The point of this article, however, is to recognize that a “Gnostic-associated” movement, namely Freemasonry, with its many branches but common enough features, became a worldwide movement in modern times. We are not to forget the ancient program of Mani to make his Gnosticizing religion “surpass” other churches that only worked in “particular places and cities,” and to spread the “message” (including that of the rescuing divine, Great Architect) “to reach every land” (Keph. 151.9–10) – even though Manichaeism faded into apparent extinction by the fourteenth century (Tardieu 2008: 91–102). But Freemasonry has usually been presented by its (traditionally all-male) members as a Craft or Art, and a philosophical, moral, and philanthropic fraternity that does not substitute for religion, albeit a society veiled by symbol and allegory, holding secrets so occult as to die for.”

The Gnostic and Esoteric Mysteries of Freemasonry, Lucifer and the Great Work

Freemasonry |
— “An occult movement of the seventeenth century. Freemasonry emerged as the British form of revived gnosticism analogous to the Rosicrucian movement in Germany. While having its roots in the architectural and construction guilds of the Middle Ages, modern masonry is rooted in the post-Reformation revival of Gnostic thought and occult practice. The mythical history of masonry served to protect it in the religiously intolerant atmosphere operative in Great Britain at the time of its founding.”

The Legend of Nimrod The Historical Origins of Freemasonry

The Mission and Vision (same old human hubris, self-centered demonic delusion of “progress”)
— “Unless we set for ourselves the grandest and loftiest ideals imaginable, the genius of humanity will never reach its full potential. As human beings we are engaged in a never-ending quest to achieve the unachievable, know the unknowable and explore the far reaches of existence. It is this quest that has pushed us to climb the highest mountains, dive to the bottom of the oceans, reach beyond the limits of our atmosphere and create technological wonders that push the boundaries of possibility. If ever we become content and satisfied with the mediocre, the average or the temptations of the status quo, the ingenuity of the human race will vanish.”

Freemasonry And The Oath Of Nimrod: The Masonic Connection To The Ancient Babylonian Mystery Religion
— “The truth is that Freemasonry has always very closely identified itself with the first great post-flood rebel against God. Nimrod was a tyrant and a purveyor of false religion. Elements of the religious system which Nimrod helped establish can be found in virtually every major world religion. Some of our most cherished "holiday traditions" can be directly traced back to ancient Babylon and to Nimrod. Once you learn to identify the elements of the ancient Babylonian mystery religion, you quickly recognize that they are virtually everywhere in the modern world.
From the very moment that initiates take the "Oath of Nimrod", Masons are plunged into a very powerful dark world based on the ancient Babylonian mystery religion. The truth is that Freemasonry does not have anything to do with the God of the Bible.
Instead, it has everything to do with the "New World Order" that Nimrod originally wanted and that Lucifer is still attempting to bring into existence today.”

Who Is The "God" Of Freemasonry? — the inversion of the Living God that makes Him evil and Lucifer (satan, the devil) good
— “If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay, the God of the Christians, whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests calumniate him? Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay 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 to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive.”

A Fictitious Jesus and Another Gospel
— “Briefly, Mormon (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the LDS Church) theology teaches that Jesus is the literal son of god and his goddess wife. That Jesus was born by God the Father having physical sexual relations with the Virgin Mary. Brigham Young taught that Jesus was not born with any involvement of the Holy Spirit. Jesus' spirit brother is Lucifer and that there is no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet of God.”
