|"Lucifer, the Light-bearer ! Strange and
mysterious name to give to the Spirit of darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning!
It is he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble,
sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not!"
Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff
Domenico Margiotta 0- 33rd degree Mason has written
"Palladism is necessarily a luciferian rite. Its religion is Manichaean neo-gnostism, teaching that the divinity is dual and that lucifer is equal of Adonay, with lucifer the God of Light and Goodness struggling for humanity against Adonay the God of darkness and Evil.. Albert Pike had only specified and unveiled the dogmas of the high grades of all other masonries, for in no matter what rite, The Great architect of the Universe is not the God worshipped by Christians"
Extract from 'Masonry - beyond the light' Wm.Schnoebelen former 32nd degree Mason
When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onwards and upwards he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy.

Interestingly the above 'luciferian' doctrine gets verified from an unusual source. Dr. Lester Sumrall in volume two of his teaching manuals 'Demonology and Deliverance', (ISBN 0-937580-64-3) uses question and answer editorial to recount the life story and demonic spiritual experiences of Arlindo D. Olivera a prominent witch doctor in Brazil who was converted to Christ. (pages 52 - 58)
On Page 57 Dr Sumrall asks
Compare this with the doctrine espoused above and you see there is the same demonic 'theology' running through both. (If this was a hoax or a joke as Mason's would have us believe then Leo Taxil demonstrated a remarkable understanding of the spirit realm)
