Ancient Egypt and the Morning Star Venus

Written by Gary Wonning

The Masonic Influence on World History

As time passes more and more is being discovered concerning the ancient craft of Masonry.

The ancients based much of their knowledge and beliefs on astronomy, in particular, Orion, the star Sirius, and the planet Venus.

Even the giant pyramid of Cheops, located on the Egyptian plain, high above Cairo, was constructed in the very same pattern as the three stars in Orion’s belt and certain air chambers in the pyramid point to Venus as it would have been positioned in the sky in earlier times.

The Egyptian hieroglyph for the morning star was the same five-pointed star used to represent the five points of Masonic fellowship in the third degree.

Albert Pike: Moral Truths

The Masonic Influence on World History

The great Masonic philosopher/writer Albert Pike once said:

Moral Truths are absolute, like the principles of Geometry. The permanent real truths said Pythagoras were the laws and constancies perceived or discovered through study and reason. In contrast, said Aristotle, virtue is but the habit or practice of doing the right thing, once it is discovered.

Truth exists, it is for us to discover whether through reason, practice or both.

Albert Pike; Masonic writer and philoso[pher on proper conduct.

Albert Pike, Masonic historian and writer’s thoughts on the Immortality of the soul.

The ancients asserted that the soul is immortal, as do most Freemasons today. Plato, through the voice of Socrates, advanced the proposition, as did Pythagoras before them.

The Roots of Masonry Run Deep

Until just recently, many members of government from the national level down to the local and state levels belonged to the Masonic order; it was almost an unspoken requirement.

Many in law enforcement also belonged, as well as members of the military. That is no longer the case. Look how we have declined since society no longer holds moral values in high esteem.

The Boston Tea Party was reportedly performed during a Masonic Lodge meeting in Boston while the lodge was called from labor to refreshment. It is noted in the lodge minutes that the lodge was called from labor to refreshment and back again to labor, but no mention was made of any extracurricular activities.

Many times in our history, during our most trying times and conflicts, the cement of brotherly love and affection has surpassed the terrors of war and united men on the battlefield, many times saving lives and preventing injuries.

Through the changing times, masonry has stood fast, even though the name may have changed through time, the principles are the same, carried on through time immemorial.

Masonry and Dogma

An Excerpt from the best selling book by Robert Lomas: The Lost Keys of Masonry

Freemasonry, by forbidding religious discussion at its meetings will not allow a Masonic theological doctrine to develop.’ I found this an important statement, as it goes well beyond simply forbidding the discussion of religion and politics, which had been in force since the adoption of Anderson’s Constitutions. It shows an awareness of Masonic dogma being inadvertently created if points of religious agreement were discussed in lodge. My personal experience of dogma, at the hands of various Sunday School teachers, had left me highly sensitive to the danger of it. Here I now found a strong statement of the religious tolerance at the heart of Masonic regulation.

The Masonic Tracing Board

 

 

 

 

 

The Masonic Tracing Board

The Tracing Board is for the Master to lay lines and draw designs on, the better to enable the Brethren to carry on the intended structure with regularity and propriety. The Volume of the Sacred Law may justly be deemed the spiritual Tracing Board of the Great Architect of the Universe, in which are laid down such Divine laws and moral plans that, were we conversant therein and adherent thereto, would bring us to an ethereal mansion not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
