Waiting for an Intelligent Approach Oct 6, 2007
I've read a few books now from the anti-Mason standpoint, and I'm still waiting to find one with an intelligent approach. This title by Storms contains more of the same half-baked theology and vehement rhetoric of similar works. As a Baptist pastor who is very familiar with Freemasonry, I am truly open to reading thoughtful, Biblically-based critiques. There are many shortcomings of this book, two of which I'll mention here.
First, the author makes no distinction between general revelation and special revelation. General revelation is what all men know about God. Romans 1:19-20 says, "For what can be know about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived every since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made." Special revelation is what God reveals to us in Jesus Christ. Freemasonry is a monotheistic fraternity (not a religion) that refers only to general revelation.
Second, the author acknowledges no good points in Freemasonry. A critique of both the good and bad aspects of the organization would be much better received. Masonry is by no means perfect, but saying it is thoroughly of the devil is far-fetched, especially in light of the many solid and selfless members within its ranks.
I wouldn't have read this title, except that a good Christian friend whom I highly respect asked me to read it. My initial expectations were low, and I wasn't surprised at all. If you're looking for a thoughtful, deliberate approach to the shortcomings of Freemasonry, look elsewhere.
