The Star of Sirius - Conclusion

I'll continue by defining some of the terms in the Templar post from part 1 of the series. The purpose of examining the text is to help us understand what it is the Knights Templar and Freemasons believe. The post, which read like mumbo jumbo said:
Alice Bailey of Theosophical fame was told by Djwahl Kuhl and the Ascended Masters that the star is The Great White Lodge in the heavens and the driving force behind Freemasonry. This accords with the ancient Egyptian identification of the star as Sah Ptah, who is the Master Builder of our universe and the alchemical force behind spiritual transformation. Sah Ptah was the acknowledged patron of the masonic craft and its lodges in Egypt.
Theosophy - The system of beliefs and teachings of the Theosophical Society, founded in New York City in 1875, incorporating aspects of Buddhism and Brahmanism, especially the belief in reincarnation and spiritual evolution. One of it's founders was Madame Blavatzky. Satanist Aleister Crowley, recognized Blavatsky as a Sister of one of his occult systems. Theosophy was fundamentally involved in creating the modern New Age movement

 Emblem of Theosophical Society
Ascended Masters -The Ascended Master teachings is derived from the Theosophical concept of Masters of the Ancient Wisdom or "Mahatmas". They are believed to be spiritually enlightened beings who in past incarnations were ordinary humans, but who have undergone a process of spiritual transformation. Originally presented by Madame Blavatsky in the 1870s, the "Masters of Wisdom" were further developed by C. W. Leadbeater, Alice Bailey, Helena Roerich, Manly P. Hall. Later on many others in theosophy-based organizations, especially in the United States, developed the concept of Ascended Masters which departs from the theosophical one in several aspects. According to Alice Bailey and Benjamin Creme there are sixty Masters of the Ancient Wisdom, defined as beings who have reached the Fifth Level of Initiation or above, with Djwhal Khul in a pivotal role as the master who telepathically dictated the many esoteric teachings in Baileys' books.

Djwhal Khul - He is believed by some Theosophists to be a Tibetan Master in the tradition of ancient esoteric spirituality. Alice Bailey, who was previously mentioned, wrote that Djwal Khul's intention was the revelation of esoteric [hidden] truth in our time. She believed her work was done on behalf of the "Hierarchy" of advanced beings, that she stated included Djwal Khul, would help prepare the way for the "Reappearance of the Christ", and would be the second in a series of three revelations meant to usher in the New Age, she referred to as the "Age of Aquarius".

The Great White Lodge - Alice Bailey maintained that the Great White Lodge of Freemasonry was based at the Sirius System, and that it was always beaming helpful rays to poor people of Earth to wallow in their ignorance, violence, and oppression. The Sirians have tried hard to civilize the people of Earth, and Freemasonry is meant as one of those civilizing forces. Lucifer and his followers defected from God's Great White Lodge and formed the The Dark Lodge. There is a struggle that goes on between both of these lodges. It was mentioned on the 2nd YouTube yesterday. (I think they are one in the same.)

Sah Ptah - Other than what was said in the quote, I was unable to find anything decisive about this Master Builder.

What a tangled mess they weave. This is only the tip of the iceberg. There are also lords, ascended masters, angels, and some other beings they also believe in. (Check it out.)

You might ask, "How could one group of men get so messed up?" You see, while the early Templars lived in the Holy Land, they embraced doctrines of other religious belief systems. They combined the teachings of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and some of the ancient esoteric religions. Then when many of them were being persecuted, they hid within the Masonic lodge.

The Catholic Church of the time was very controlling, and believed that it was "our way or the highway." There were plenty of groups who were accused of heresy during those years. Perhaps that was when the Templars decided that a one-world religion would solve all the problems of the world, and it would avoid future conflicts.

It became the goal of the Knights Templar and Freemason to bring about Universalism.  The first evidence of Universalism was found in the architectural design of the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. The chapel was built in the 15th century, which was 150 years after the dissolution of the Knights Templar. It was filled with a combination of religious symbolism from many different religions, along with Templar symbols. The chapel designs remove all boundaries concerning world religion. Therefore, the message from the Templars and the Freemasons is Universalism.

Manly Hall, a renowned Masonic scholar wrote:
"The true Mason is not creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in temple, mosque or cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth." The Lost Keys of Freemasonry
The current interfaith movement has become the new channel to advance "Universalism." Dr. Robert Muller, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General to three UN Secretary Generals, is a featured speaker at many New Age events and conferences. He said:
"The truth that was given by Jesus, by Mohammed, by these emissaries from outer space, they were really basic truths. And they were so great that the cosmos almost incarnated itself. This is why Jesus said, "I am the incarnation of the divine." And the Indigenous people, they called it "Great Spirit." So there was always this fighting to get the message from the outer universe to give us confidence and to tell us how to behave. This is why practically all the religions have a great contribution to make to the mystery of life.… The only trouble is that their followers, the disciples, they created around these spiritual messages a religion."
This makes biblical Christianity the enemy, because it makes claims that other religions will not accept. If universalism is true, and all religions are equally valid, then the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ was pointless. Think about it, if salvation could be attained in Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, or any other "spiritual path," what valid reason would God have had in sending Jesus Christ, His "only beloved Son," to die?
