Tonight, you will find out. However, you will meet and hear two former Worshipful Masters, Mr. Jim Flannigan and Mr. Jack Harris, explain what they used to believe and teach as leaders of the Lodge.
The Secret Teachings of the Masonic Lodge: A Christian Perspective.
Ankerberg: Welcome. In this program we will examine the question: Should a Christian swear oaths promising to uphold the teachings of Masonry? Is it proper for a Christian to learn the secret signs and handshakes of the Masonic Lodge, all the while promising not to divulge those secrets upon penalty of death? In order to answer these questions, we must examine the evidence. First, in every one of the degrees of the Masonic Lodge, there is a frightening vow that every Masonic candidate must swear to in order to pass that degree.
What does each candidate promise? How binding is the vow? Is it a vow that Jesus Christ would want His followers to take? To help you understand what happens in the Ritual, please listen as two former Worshipful Masters, Mr. Jack Harris and Mr.
Jim Flannigan, explain to you some of the secret signs known to Masons all over the world. Please listen.

But, he noticed that the captain of the American ship threw his hands up like this, giving the Grand Hailing Sign, letting them fall by three distinct motions. At this time, the U-boat captain called off his attack. Why are they there? It would appear that the intent to inspire terror has been effectively used by those in the Masonic Lodge ever since.

Why is there this fear? The Due Guard is the manner in which the hands are placed upon the square, compass and Bible while taking the oath or obligation, and the Sign is the indication of the acceptance of the penalty of that obligation. In the Entered Apprentice degree, the hands were held like this over the square, compass and Bible, and then the hand is drawn across the throat, indicating the penalty for revealing this knowledge, which is the throat being cut across from ear to ear.
The tongue is also removed. For the Fellow Craft degree, the Sign was this [demonstrates], and indicated the tearing open of the breast and the removal of the heart to be given to the birds as a penalty for revealing the secrets.

Ankerberg: Now the question is, Do Masons really take the oaths and these penalties seriously?
Well, we asked former Worshipful Master Mr. Jack Harris about what he and others believed in his Lodge and here is what he said.

The philosophies and symbols used in the Masonic rituals all point to a world view that includes God as a benevolent but unapproachable father who holds all men as his children, regardless of their beliefs.
