***** Excellent Challenge to Masonry, May 11, 2004
Michael Taylor "Michael Taylor" (Indian Trail NC)
In my humble opinion, Ankerberg and Weldon have produced a well-written book with clear statements of what masons believe and how their beliefs directly contradict true Christianity.
In maintaining intellectual honesty, I researched some of the masonic quotes the authors referenced and found them to be accurate and not taken out of context. A true Christian with a solid Biblical foundation will readily see the conflict between Christianity and freemasonry. Sadly, those who give the book a low rating fail to counter with substantative arguments of their own as to how Christianity and freemasonry complement one another.
Admittingly, I come from the perspective of an evangelical Christian. However, as stated earlier, one only has to read the book, research the masonic sources, and compare to the Holy Bible to see the contradictions (Jesus Christ's divinity, salvation, sin, etc.).
A highly recommended read for anyone wanting to know the truth about freemasonry. As for those masons who are offended, please develop some cohesive arguments as to why freemasonry is equal to or greater than Christianity!
