The Royal Arch is present in all Masonic systems. During the ritual of the Royal Arch exaltation ceremony, the candidate learns the Sacred and Mysterious Name of the True and Living God Most High, namely the name JAHBULON. What is the true meaning of this name and is it a suitable name for the God of the Bible?
An unquestionable and integral part of Masonic doctrine is the principle of the Immortality of the Soul. For Masons, life does not end in death but rather Masonry teaches that the spirit of man is immortal. You will in none find mentioned in any of the many rituals or ceremonies both at Craft Masonry and beyond, the concept or the word hell. Instead, the Mason despite his religious philosophy or persuasion, whether he be a Christian or a Muslim; a Jew or a Hindu; a Mormon or a Buddhist – is promised the hope of being granted admittance into the heavenly lodge above. Perhaps, the doctrine of the Immortality of the Soul is nowhere more clearly felt than at a Masonic funeral service. This teaching explores this doctrine and asks the question; Is such teaching compatible with the Bible?
