Blasphemous works of Ephisians-5-11.org
I was performing some research on Hiram and came across the website: Eph 5-11.org Where I am aware that this site is quite strongly anti-Masonic in nature, I also noticed that there is a strongly inferred inaccuracy within. There it states that "...the most important element of Masonic symbolism deals with the death, burial and resurrection of Hiram Abiff..." is incorrect. Nowhere in any of the Masonic rituals, that I have studied through, does any of them mention the "resurrection" of Hiram Abiff. Yes it does say that his body is dug up and reburied closer to Solomons Temple, but nothing about him defeating death itself.
I have spoken with many Freemasons, from various countries across the globe (Americas, Europe, Australasia), and none of them have ever heard of any alleged resurrection of Hiram's father in any of their degrees.
"with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love" Perhaps I am wrong, but I believe that the author of this page is suffering from what many people (regardless of religion) do. They hold onto the battle cry: "if you are not with me, then you must be against me".
I wonder if the author is aware that Switzerland is a neutral country? Neutral in that the Swiss do not side with any other country; therefore having no enemies and being friend to all. But if we look at neutrality under the "not with therefore against me" attitude, then we would have to view Switzerland as not friend to any country, but enemy to all.
In reapplication of the neutrality theory, it should be known that the Freemasons are also neutral; not siding with any one religion and extending friendship to all. In contrast, if applying the "not with therefore against me" attitude (as seemingly chosen by the author) we would see them as not a friend to any religion, but enemy to all.
Personally, I think God's teachings in Eph.4:2 is a better choice and I view them as neutral. Taking the acceptance of neutrality also ensures that I live up to His commandments as stated in Romans 12:10 "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves."
Let it be known that I am a frequent reader of our Lord's works and Word, but I need to ensure that I do not take His Word out of intended context; and that I do not inadvertently cast myself towards Satan in doing so.
Ephesians 5:11 certainly advises that we should "have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them" stopping at this point would be one of those instances where I could easily mistake His commandments and write a page such as done by the afore mentioned author. Having the sense and wisdom to read on, I note that Ephesians 5:12 states: "for it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret."
When taking the two verses together, we see context in that, writing a webpage that falsely implies the resurrection of a man that is not resurrected and then endeavouring to mention what the disobedient do in secret is a direct disobedience to God's Word. Being that Ephesians 5:12 has been so blatently ignored, I would presume that the teachings of I Corinthians 5:9 (for us to not associate with immoral people) has also been ignored; and in developing such a webpage the author is allowing himself/herself to associate with immoral people.
