In African Origin found in Religion and Freemasonry: Part II, Brother Griffo and Brother Berkley parallel these ancient arts and sciences to religion, everyday life, and the occults. Their in depth research uncovers how the ancient African practices are concealed behind religious characters and events currently being utilized in several cultural practices. Brother Griffo and Brother Berkley work to reawaken culturally the thinking minds of culturally deprived communities by demonstrating how ancient African arts and sciences can be utilized in modern times without adapting the total lifestyle of ancient Africans. They make a clear distinction between ancient tradition, and its use of modern arts and sciences.

Dr. Albert G. Mackey, also the author of The Lexicon of Freemasonry appears as author of this " Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and its Kindred Sciences," which, being a library in inself, superseded most of the Masonic works which have been tolerated by the craft—chiefly because none better could be obtained. Here, in one giant volume is a work which fulfils the hope which sustained the author through ten years' literary labor, that, under one cover he "would furnish every Mason who might consult its pages the means of acquiring a knowledge of all matters connected with the science, the philosophy, and the history of his order." For more than thirty years Dr. Mackey has devoted earnest and constant study and research to the history, the objects, and the condition of Masonry. In the present work, the crowning and successful result of a life's labors, he has received no assistance from any one. He says, " Every article was written by myself," and he adds, which would extenuate errors, had he fallen into any, "For twelve months, too, of the time occupied upon this work, I suffered from an affection of the sight, which forbade all use of the eyes for purposes of study. During that time, now happily passed, all authorities were consulted by the willing eyes of my daughters—all writing was done by their hands. I realized for a time the picture so often painted of the blind bard dictating his sublime verses to his daughters," and his preface closes with the words, "Were I to dedicate this work at all, my dedication should be—To Filial Affection." Up to the present time the modern literature of Freemasonry has been diffuse, lumbering, unreliable, and, out of all reasonable proportions.

There are some religions and cults that are pseud-Christian. They seek to deceive people into thinking that the are another denomination or version of Christianity. There are also religions that at times deny that they are actually religions. This book presents a critique of two movements that often claim not to be religion. Freemasonry at the three levels of the Blue Lodge claim to be non-reigilious despite religious ceremonies. At advanced levels, such as the Scottish Rite and Shriners, however, Masonic authorities admit it is religion, teach religion and claim it is the only complete religion. At times those being initiated into Freemasonry ar told the Bible is their authority an guide. This easily proes to be completely false.The New Age movement frequently claims to be non-religious but spiritual. However, assessing its teachings reveal it to clearly be a religion. Often New Age advocates will quote Jesus or something else from the Bible to give the illusion that the Bible agrees with their errant teachings, or that this religion is Christian or similar to Christianity. Such practices are also deceptive. The two religions are actually anti-Christian in their fundamental teachings, their practices and their end goals..

What is it about Freemasonry that would cause churches to forbid or openly discourage seventy million Americans from membership? Why have eight popes condemned the Lodge? Why has the relationship between the Catholic Church and the Masonic order been strained for centuries? Christianity and American Freemasonry answers these and many other questions and describes why Christ ianity and Freemasonry are incompatible. Today over two million American men belong to the Masonic order, the largest and oldest secret fraternal society. In earlier history the Freemasons boasted a prestigious membership, including fourteen American presidents and such founding fathers as Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, and Alexander Hamilton. This is the most complete reference book available on the subject. Chapters discuss the rituals and oaths, the Scottish and York rites, allied organizations such as the Shriners, and the historic antagonism of Christianity toward Masonry. It is thoroughly documented with facts from: • the three most noted experts on Masonry in America • Masonic ritual books, encyclopedias, and histories • three former Masons, now active Catholics, who contributed firsthand knowledge of Masonic ritual and structure.

This study considers the institution of Freemasonry from the point of view of both masons and their critics, as well as from the author's own. In the first section, it gives an outline of masonic history, from the foundation of the Grand Lodge in Covent Garden in 1717 through its major role in Enlightenment Europe and the American War of Independence, its many tribulations and schisms in the 19th century to the present day. The book looks at one of the main sources of masonic history, Anderson's "Constitutions", which documents masonic practice and the masons' mythical history back to Hiram Abiff, the first Master Mason in the reign of King Solomon.
