The Masonic Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of Canada Quotes John Macarthur in their Recent Communiqué
"More incriminating evidence is a quotation by John Macarthur found in the Masonic publication of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of Canada. A recent issue [March 2014] of a quarterly letter to District Deputy Grand Masters quotes John Macarthur’s advice to aspiring church leaders as applicable for developing leaders of the Masons lodge:
"'Leaders are also ordinary people, with all the struggles, all the strengths, and all the weaknesses of people like us. ‘It’s not what you are that’s important, the issue is what you are willing to become’ (John MacArthur Jr. President Master’s Seminary).
"'In any organization, including Masons, they need leadership. Someone to direct the administration that makes the organization a living, vital team and, particularly, to ensure that there is some growth, and that standards of enthusiasm, action and competence are maintained at a high level.'" (Grand Lodge of Canada, March 2014)
"John Macarthur seems to require no introduction in this widely distributed Communiqué to the Masonic leadership in Canada. He is a familiar personage to them, not only because his distinguished great grandfather was Provincial Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada, but because he himself promotes the principles of Freemasonry. It is doubtful the Grand Lodge of Canada would quote an Evangelical minister who is not a fellow Mason.
"John Macarthur’s statement in the Grand Lodge Communiqué expresses the philosophy of Freemasonry as stated by the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada.
"'It’s not what you are that’s important, the issue is what you are willing to become.'" (John MacArthur Jr.)
"On July 16th, 2014 the Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Donald A. Campbell commenced his address by welcoming everyone to the 159th Annual Communication of Grand Lodge in Toronto. He made special mention of the Leaders from other Grand Jurisdictions and the Masonic Family.
"He went on to suggest to the Masons present that… 'I am convinced the world today needs Freemasonry, its philosophy and its fundamental principles of brotherly love, relief and truth,' Moreover he suggested that ‘It’s not what you are that’s important, the issue is what you are willing to become.'" (Highlights of the Grand Master's 2014 Address)
"The Masonic axiom was similarly expressed by the author of Don Quixote:
"'Love not what you are, but what you may become.'" (Don Quixote de la Mancha)
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616) was a Spanish novelist, poet, playwright, and a Jewish Marrano educated by the Jesuits. Cervantes is frequently quoted in Masonic literature and Masonic Lodges have been named after him. (3). Notice that the motto of the Grand Lodge of Prince Edward Island is “Making Good Men Better.” Freemasonry rejects the doctrine of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone and preaches instead how to become better men by receiving the “light” (enlightenment), which is progressively imparted through degrees of initiation.
3.That Cervantes was an occultist is shown by Robert Bruce Fruehling who writes in The Revelation of King Arthur, “One of the stories of Don Quixote has the Don encountering Merlin in a mountain cave.” (p. 96) According to Nicholas de Vere, “The witch, as a seer or Merlin in Scythian culture and society, consequently belonged to an exclusive genome within a distinct holy and royal caste of overlords, which is reflected in the Gaelic word for a witch - Druidhe - which is pronounced Drui and is related to Draoi and Dracoi, meaning a dragon...” (From Transylvania to Tunbridge Wells)
