LMAO I know right, My grandfather and all his friend are Masons, for the most part they sit around and drink, go to meetings, do community service and fish... scary stuff right?
Just like I already said, most people who have Masonic relatives think everything is a joke. We are the most oblivious because we judge Masonry by our relatives. But my uncle is a Mason, but I chose not to cosign him "just because". There is cleay mysticism in Masonry that is scary. One example being the 30th Degree. From this degree, you come upon the Sephiroth, or the tree of life. The sephiroth of the 30th degree is barrowed from the Kaballah Jews who openly admit to magic and mysticism. According to mystic Jews, Kaballah astrology reveals Satan. Allah (swt) forbade the Israelites in the Torah from practicing magic and mysticism. The Torah itself has laws that allow for the stoning magicians. Some people support magic because of stories of Solomon doing magic and this or that, but those stories were written LONG after King Solomon was dead. A lot of those bibilical books are not first-hand accounts.
Some of the Jews of today, who practice Rabbinical Judaism, which is different from Musa’s (as) religion, dibble and dabble in other affairs. As a Muslim, I know to be wary of mysticism. Most non-Muslims do not realize the power of mysticism, and that when they channel these mystic forces, they channel the shaitan. Elements of deception are involved in mysticism because it leads to occultism, esoteric beliefs, and sometimes magic. Mysticism also leads to misguidance and innovation, which is why you will often find mystic people of any religion to be “weirder” or “stranger” than other people from the same religion. For example, compare a mystic Jew to a regular Jew, or a mystic Muslim to a regular Muslim and you see what I mean.
