Weirdly, Dan Brown also included the Abrahamic religions in his assertion about apotheosis, his argument being that their followers have woefully misinterpreted these religions. To be fair to Brown, there is a sense in which this is true. Judaism, Islam and, especially Christianity all had opportunities to go down radically different paths, but they didn't and the reason they didn't was that their founders saw that these alternative paths were catastrophic to the integrity of the central message. For example, the whole episode of the "Satanic Verses" in Islam concerned an attempt by Mohammed to be conciliatory towards other religions by suggesting that maybe it was OK to worship gods other than Allah. Of course, this was anathema to the concept of monotheism, so he rapidly backtracked and invented a story about having been deceived by Satan masquerading as the Angel Gabriel. The Abrahamic religions rejected all the paths that softened the Abrahamic hard line. In the end, there was no misinterpretation at all. They are now exactly what they were intended to be.
It's important to be accurate about the Freemasons. Most modern Masons have virtually no idea of the history of "their" organisation. You will hear contemporary Masons talking about respecting all religions. Indeed, this is exactly what Dan Brown asserts in The Lost Symbol.
The character Peter Solomon says to Robert Langdon: "Robert, you and I both know that the ancients would be horrified if they saw how their teachings have been perverted…how religion has established a tollbooth to heaven…how warriors march into battle believing God favors their cause. We've lost the Word, and yet its true meaning is still within reach, right before our eyes. It exists in all the enduring texts, from the Bible to the Bhagavad Gita to the Koran and beyond. All of these texts are revered upon the altars of Freemasonry because Masons understand what the world seems to have forgotten…that each of these texts, in its own way, is quietly whispering the exact same message." Peter's voice welled with emotion. "Know ye not that ye are gods?"
Yet just a paragraph or two earlier, Langdon had said to Solomon: "Peter, the Bible and the Ancient Mysteries are total opposites. The mysteries are all about the god within you…man as god. The Bible is all about the God above you…and man as a powerless sinner."
Langdon is EXACTLY right. The Ancient Mysteries, the religions of Enlightenment, are all about man becoming God, while the Abrahamic religions are about the infinite separation between man and God. These two views of religion are absolutely and eternally opposed. They are irreconcilable in every way. One view is aligned with the True God, the other with Satan. Humanity can make no progress until the Satanic religions of Abraham with their vile depiction of humanity as worthless, degraded, depraved sinners are abolished forever.
Abrahamism has done untold damage to the human race. It has alienated humanity from its true self. It has warped the psyche of all those who worship the God of Abraham. It has turned the world into a mental asylum. It is the root of all evil.
Freemasonry, in its original form, made no mistake about which religions were good and which evil. Its central purpose was the overthrow of the religions of Abraham and the political regimes - monarchies and tyrannies - they supported.
