Christianity is a lower level in Free Masonry

From a lecture on Free Masonry 17 April 1831, England.

..."the terms Christians, Jews, Israelites and Hebrews are not names of communities that ever existed in a national or political character, but are designations of the different degrees, or grades of initiation in the mysteries of masonry."

..."this Epistle to the Hebrews, justly tells them, the doctrine of Christ is baby's meat; it is mere meat and lollypop for the nursery: as he tells the lodge at Corinth. I have fed you with milk and not with meat, for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able."

"As all the other epistles in the new testament...Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Collossians, Thessalonians, etc., are epistles to different lodges of Free Masons, which were established in Rome, Corinth, Ephesus, etc., and had been established for ages before our date of the Christian era."

"...this epistle to the Hebrews, literally is, an epistle to the free masons-that is, to the higher order of the initiated in the craft of mysteries. The free and accepted masons; who, if christians would but read their book with a mind to observe what it is they do read(which they never do), they would see that Hebrews...is not addressed to any national community, but to a mystical and religious fraternity only..."
