349 MASONIC AND EASTERN STAR SYMBOLS

One Masonic symbol that appears to be Christian is the cross and the crown emblem. However, this is not the case. Masonic author, Ray Denslow, reveals:
KNIGHTS TEMPLAR
"The Cross and Crown may be said to be confined almost exclusively to the historical degrees in Masonry as exemplified in the various orders of knighthood of York and Scottish rites. In Gaul we find the cross to have been a solar symbol when it had equal arms and angles; to the Phoenicians it was an instrument of sacrifice to their God, Baal; and to the Egyptians, the crux ansata was his symbol of eternal life.”’44 [Emphasis in the original]
In The Masonic Report we find more about this emblem:
"Question: What does Masonry’s emblem of the ’Cross and Crown’ actually symbolize?
"Answer: The ’Cross’ of Freemasonry is a philosophic- al cross, according to Albert Pike, ’Morals and Dogma,’ p. 771. It is philosophical in the sense that it represents the generating fecundating principle by the perpendicular shaft,

and the matrix or womb of nature, the female producing principle. by the horizontal shaft. The philosophy of the Masonic cross is totally phallic.
"The ’Crown’ of this Masonic emblems is also phallic, it being the first emanation of the Cabalistic Sephiroth....”4’
A former Mason also explains:
"The other York Rite jewelry you may see is the Templar symbol....It is a large Maltese cross with a circle in the center. Inside the circle is a red Latin cross within a crown. Around the arms of the cross is the Commandery motto, ’In Hoc Signo Vinces.’ (In this sign, conquer!)
"Although this may seem harmless enough, the motto is originally attributed to the emperor Constantine, who used it in conjunction with a supposedly heavenly vision to begin the subversion and politicization of Biblical Christianity into the false, apostate Alexandrian cult....
"A similar shell game is played with the word ’sign.’... The sign Constantine referred to was NOT a Christian cross, but a kind of ’X’ which had both Christian and pagan associations. In modern magic, it is the sign of the slain and risen Egyptian god, Osiris (another version of the ’slain and risen’ Hiram Abif).
-Again Masonry has downgraded Jesus and replaced Him with its own 'christ'."  [Emphasis in the original]

351  MASONIC AND EASTERN STAR SYMBOLS
Two other groups (both with Masonic connections) use the cross and crown. Charles Taze Russell was a Mason who started the Jehovah Witnesses.’4’ He used the red cross and other distinctive features of the Knights Templar logo.’”
He also used the Masonic symbol of the winged sun-disk with snakes and he is ”buried in a pyramid with masonic symbols on its capstone." 149

The other group that uses the cross and crown emblem is Christian Science. This group was founded by Mary Baker Eddy in Massachusetts but Mason Henry Steele Olcott, who was co- founder of the Theosophical Society with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky,’” was an associate of Mary Baker Eddy.’” Some Eddy Brothers held seances and it was at these seances that Blavatsky met Col. Henry Steele Olcott.’” Mary Baker Eddy herself had married a Mason and this was the only secret society which she allowed other Christian Science members to join.’” She even had some of her material published in the Freemason’s Monthly Magazine. ”4 Several people connected with Christian Science such as directors and board members and a number of the editors of The Christian Science Monitor were Masons.’” Even the presidents of the Mother Church in 1922-23 and 1923-24 were Masons.’”
