The Masonic Lodge offers its members social prestige, brotherhood, a sense of mystery, and opportunities for charitable work. But that's not all that goes on behind closed doors. Despite Masonry's promise to members that nothing in it conflicts with Christianity, plenty does---and Ankerberg and Weldon offer the eye-opening documentation to prove it. A carefully researched scrutiny of the beliefs, rituals, and teachings of the Masons. 333 pages, softcover from Moody.

Review 1 for The Secret Teachings of the Masonic Lodge
This is a good book on the topic.Masonry is occultic and teaches what the bible clearly stamps as dangerous.This is a worthy survey from men who test masonry in light of the bible and expose its darkness.Freemasonry blasphemes the Trinity behind there closed doors and oftentimes members do not realize this.Another must reading is by Ron Rhodes called 'Reasoning From The Scriptures With The Masons' and a CD by Walter Martin called 'A Dialogue on Freemasonry' from Walter Martins website.

Review 2 for The Secret Teachings of the Masonic Lodge
Date:October 29, 2007
This book was very informational for someone who is not familiar to the masonic lodge. It also does a great job of shedding light on the evils of the masonic lodge. I know I am out numbered in the reviews but I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone.

Review 3 for The Secret Teachings of the Masonic Lodge
Slanted in Treatment, Shallow in TheologyI give this book zero only because I can't give it a negative number. I will readily admit the Masonic lodge has its share of inconsistencies and shortcomings, but this volume has the tone and slant of a literary witch hunt. When I purchased this title, I knew it would be critical of the Masonic lodge, but I had no idea it would be filled with such anti-Masonic animosity. From the standpoint of the authors, being a Mason and being a Satanist are pretty much on the same level of wickedness and evil. A more balanced critique of Freemasonry would present some positive aspects of the craft as well as negative. I find nothing but venom here.I'm also greatly disappointed that the authors appear to be unable to make a distinction between general revelation and special revelation. This distinction is commonplace among all reputable Bible-believing, Christ-honoring theologians. Freemasonry is a religious fraternity (not a religion) based on general revelation. It does not claim to offer special revelation. The failure of the authors to distinguish between the two displays a very shallow grasp of basic Christian theology.Frankly, I have problems taking this book seriously. The motive seems to be one of grinding an ax against the Masonic lodge rather than trying to offer a respectable critique. I'm sorry I purchased this title. If you want to experience it firsthand, borrow it from someone else or try to find it in a public library.

Review 4 for The Secret Teachings of the Masonic Lodge
Date:April 2, 2006
As a Christian I am appalled by the book. It is obvious they know nothing about the tenets of releif brotherly love and truth. What some people will do to make money. Save your money and spend it actually doing God's work rather than try to expose a group who actually does God's work and accepts people of all faiths, regardless of denomination. To spread lies about a fraternity who had a major impact on the founding of this nation is absurd. If our founding fathers were not Masons and beleived in masonic ideals we would still be under English rule. That is a fact look it up.
