People have various views about this question. However, both groups whether the same or different have one thing in common which is that there are a mystic group that believes more in higher powers and that man can attain such powers. Therefore some people said there are same but only changed names but the basic thing is that they have similar idea between man and higher powers
This is the first time that I have not even a clue about the answer. I will look this up and also try to learn from the other answers. Thanks for introducing a new topic.
Whatever else they are Freemasons are NOT a Christian group, in fact as brotherhoods go they are united in spite of Religion are certainly not because of it. To become a Mason you have to believe in a God which is not the same thing.
Only in the minds of conspiracy theorists are there any connections between the Freemasons and the Illuminati, makes for great fiction and writers like myself use it in our stories but there is no proof that the Illuminati still exist.
Even at their peak they were as it says on the tin, 'The Illuminati' The Enlightened Ones and the only reason they went underground and became a secret society was to prevent prosecution from the church who branded all who disagreed with the churches or biblical explanation for things as heretics and subject to the Inquisition, torture and possible death.
PS I am not a Freemason, I do not believe in a God, any of them, and because of that I could be considered that I am one of the Illuminati.
I know a Freemason who was a christian . I think he was from the Baptist church. I can't answer this because I have only know Freemasons and have never come across an Illuminati.
According to my studies they are not, they seem to be opposites. The Illuminati means the enlightened ones, which are the richest ruling corporations and families around the globe. The Freemasons like Benjamin Franklin, Jefferson and Washington stood against what the enlightened ones stood for which was new world order. New World Order is basically a plan thought of long ago to centralize the banks of the world so that a few would rule the world by controlling the international money supply.
They are not the same nor are they associated with each other. Other than that, the information that I have been reading in some of the answers show that they are misled in their knowledge of Freemasons. I will not go into lessons here but there are many good references out there that will be able to clear up the myths about Freemasons. I am a Master Mason and I have written a hub in general about the Freemasons. http://allenwilliams.hubpages.com/hub/F … raternity.
I dont know the answer to the question ..BUT..I am married to a Freemason all I can say on the subject is that they are NOT a secret society as some would have us believe but a society of secrets,they do a lot of charity work and are nothing sinister or bad but everything that is good
ABSOLUTELY NOT! The Scottish Rites of Freemasonary is an HONORABLE Fraternal Orginization that focus' on POSITIVE local outreach, As for the Illuminati, They are a hoax, a scary tale that conspiracy theorists tell their children at night. I know her is so many lis about the Masons being linked to the Illuminati but it is ALL LIES! People with over active imaginations who are trying for one reason or another tryingto get you to NOT like the Masons. The masons are real. The Illuminati (as of todays world is a fake). on't Believe everything you read online, stop being sheep.
I am finding this question quite interesting, especially about the fact that freemasons are christians. I did some research on the freemasons and saw that you cannot become a freemason if you do not have a religion and this would lead me to deduce that most christians of any standing in the United States or the United Kingdom have ties to the freemasons. I guess it is difficult to verify this since the freemason world is quite secretive. On the other hand I believe that freemasonry and catholicism are most likely incompatible since the pope has condemned freemasonry so it is most likely that freemasons are made up of christians and not catholics.

Is there a treatment for God addiction?. Excuse me for questionng everything. Never did get the illusion of blood or body of Jesus metaphor, it seem like vampire-ism or cannibalism. Never got these wars over imaginary friends or killing someone for working on Sunday. This karma runs over the dogma....
