Undercover videos of LDS Mormon rituals and ceremonies


The LDS religion and Mormon culture has long fascinated me; primarily for my interest in whether or not they are truly a cult. I know plenty of Mormons and they are nice, normal people. However, the secrecy of the LDS religion and the overabundance of Freemasonry and occult symbolism has led me to really wonder about the inner workings of the faith. I think the regular church goers aren’t aware of the inner workings, so I’ve got to believe that if something is going on, it’s really only known to the highest ranking members.

There’s a newer Youtube channel started up by an anonymous person with several videos of the initiations and rituals that go on inside of the temples. The temples have highly restricted access, and as far as I know even LDS members must get special permission to go inside. I’m planning on starting up some kind of project to explore these ideas, since I really don’t know a whole lot about it.


Here’s one of the videos NewNameNoah posted up that shows inside of the temple with many of the Freemasonry hand shakes and secret names and codes they use. It’s mad creepy, however, I suppose most religions are creepy to those of us who don’t know much about them. I’ll post up info on my project once I figure out what I’m doing with it, I might do up another book, we’ll see. There is tons of literature out there from ex-members who speak out and say that the church is secretly a cult.

Here’s a website that talks about some of the similarities between Freemasons and LDS, and includes a diagram of one of the images I lifted from the video above. Here’s Christian-Restoration talking about the following image:

Many things are alike, but a few examples will suffice. Elements apparently stolen by Joseph Smith include the presentation and wearing of an apron, whispering of ‘secret’ information ‘on the five points of fellowship (i.e. foot to foot, knee to knee, breast to breast, hand to back, mouth to ear), similarities in the oaths of obligation, the penalties and penalty signs for each, and the symbolism of the square and compass, which must be embroidered in significant places on their ‘magic’ underwear.  

Masonic signs used in Mormon temple ritual.

From ‘Christ, the Christian and Freemasonry’  by W J McCormick)

Yvonne Kitchen, on page 170 of her ministry manual ‘Freemasonry. Death in the family’  lists the following similarities with Freemasonry..

  • The all seeing eye

  • The wearing of the apron with the square and compass

  • The five points of fellowship

  • The special grasps and handshakes

  • Star and sun symbols

  • Penalties agreed to under oath

  • The throat slitting sign

  • The cutting out of the heart

The most famous of all Mormon aphorisms declares “As man now is God once was; as God now is, man may become”  This is again masonic thought.  Manley P Hall. [33rd degree Mason] on page 92 of ‘Lost keys of Freemasonry’ wrote, “Man is God in the making..”Mormonism and Freemasonry have always been inextricably linked at the leadership level.

Not only were Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum Masons, but so was Smith’s successor Brigham Young. As a matter of fact, the first five presidents of the Mormon church (its first five ‘living prophets’) were Masons.  – Tom McKenney  ‘Tell me please..’ Page 183

All ‘apostolic’ successors since (Young) have been Freemasons. Wilford Woodruff, Lorenzo Snow, Joseph Fielding Smith, and Herbert Grant. Masonic membership is still a requirement for members of the Mormon Church’s ‘apostolic’ hierarchy. According to Tom McKinney, co-author of The Deadly Deception, the Mormon hierarchy must be members of the Masonic Blue Lodge. In Scottish Rite Masonry illustrated, Dr. J. Blanchard states of Mormonism and Masonry: “The two institutions are morally and legally the same” – John Daniel, ‘Scarlet and the Beast’ page 42, volume 1

  1. No Mormons aren’t into illuminati and stuff. They are Christians. If anything, they’re quite strict on good moral values… No drinking alcohol, no smoking, no sex before marriage, no gambling… In order for them to be worthy to enter the temple, they have to be worthy: Honest, and not participating in evil doing…. They have high expectations on the members’ standards of living.

  1. Illuminati symbolism in Lindsey Stirling’s ‘Shatter Me’ album - IlluminatiWatcher - […] and Freemasonry go hand in hand, and the formation of the LDS church has Freemason roots. Check out this…
