HIDDEN SECRETS OF MASONRY by Dr. Cathy Burns
First of all, this is a booklet, not a book.
It is effective in what it does, which is to provide specific warnings as to why freemasonry is an antichristian religion and no one who claims Jesus Christ as his/her Saviour should have anything to do with it other than to reprove it as does this author. The antichristian meanings to the symbolism and rituals of freemasonry are succinctly as well as sufficiently explained.
This is the third book/booklet I have read by this author. On the subjects of freemasonry and of freemasonic Billy Graham she has proven a very astute and discerning woman. I would not go so far, as she apparently does, as to believe that freemasonry is the most powerful and evil institution on Earth; Burns is ignorant of other and greater secret societies which long ago infiltrated freemasonry and now control it. Nevertheless, when she writes about the pagan origins of the symbols and rituals of freemasonry, and the dangers of Christians engaging in freemasonry in general, this is all quite true and accurate, and the black and white illustrations herein are clear and adequately instructional.
This author does have a bad habit of doctoring up her text by bolding and enlarging various and sundry words in her paragraphs which she frenetically feels are of more importance than others. No doubt she, like a lot of “christian patriot” types who for some reason seem to specialize in doing these hyperbolic font tricks, thinks that she is enhancing her work by drawing attention to these certain emphasized words. However, she is not enhancing her work at all in doing this; instead, she is detracting from her work by constantly distracting the reader from getting into any kind of reading rhythm. Please, Ms. Burns, resist the temptation to hit the “bold” and “enlarge text” button every four or five words in each sentence.
Bottom line: As a primer of admonishment to give to baby Christians who are considering a dalliance with freemasonry, or who have recently been sucked into freemasonry’s lying occult vortex, then this is a very serviceable book. Just expect to be constantly distracted by the bold, enlarged words peppering every paragraph. And don’t get sucked into Dr. Burns’s mistaken belief that the big, bad freemasons sit atop the NWO.
