8.20.2008 – The Link?

It is RUMORED that, in the initiation rite of the 33rd degree of Freemasonry, a potential candidate is, at some point, asked to spit on the cross. For those that refuse, the leaders of the ceremony reply with a well done…that is the correct response…and welcome them in. However, it is said that for those that DO spit on the cross, they are told that they’ve made the right decision and only THOSE candidates are ushered into the ‘inner-sanctum’…the ‘elite’ if you will, of Freemasonry. Now grant you, I started this paragraph with the words ‘it is RUMORED’ for a reason. This is NOT verified information. However, for the sake of argument, let’s assume that it is.

With that begin said, there are books and theories that trace Freemasonry back to the Knights Templar. The protectors of the sacred ‘Holy Grail’. In many sources, the Holy Grail is NOT what most people believe it to be. It is not the ‘literal’ cup that was used during the last supper. The Grail is believed to be the sacred bloodlines of Jesus himself. Which obviously causes a great deal of problems for orthodox Christianity. If Jesus has a bloodline, he would have to have had children, and most likely a wife (many believe this to be Mary Magdalene). It is believed that the Templars (created originally by the Priory of Sion), had found proof of this bloodline and have been protecting that secret for centuries.

So, let’s say, for argument sake, that all of this is true. The Kights Templar DID, in fact, have PROOF of Jesus’ bloodline and humanity. Let’s also say that the theories are true that connect modern Freemasonry to that same group of Knights Templars. It would certainly make a lot of sense to have that final act of the 33rd degree be what it is rumored to be. Because, they would be ‘in the know’ of a secret that would render Christianity completely false.

A bold statement for sure. And one that I’m not committed to believing fully. But from reading Holy Blood, Holy Grail, and from many other sources on the Magdalene, it certainly bears consideration. And it certainly starts to make a lot of sense when you step back and look at the whole picture.

    LOL! About the only thing factual about your post is that it is, as you first suggest, all rumor! Freemasonry did not evolve from the Templars; nor is spitting on a cross (or anything else) a part of the 33rd, or any other Degree in Masonry.

    Don’t forget, Freemasons are among the good guys in the world. Like you, we are interested in bringing God into the center of human consciousness. You can feel safe being our friend! It’s truly a waste to pay much attention to rumors.

    Hey Mark,

    Thanks for the comment. I wasn’t in any way suggesting that Freemasonry was a bad thing. I have a good friend who is one, and from the research I have done, I don’t see anything bad about it. I wasn’t suggesting that any of those things in my post are a bad thing. Unless a person is a devout Christian, no one should take offense.

    If you’ve read the book ‘Born in Blood’, which is widely accepted as one of the best books on Freemasnry (mostly by masons), the writer makes a pretty solid case connecting the Freemasons to the Knights Templar.

    Everything is theory. I was just presenting one that crossed my mind.
