Very interesting!Just saw this commercial for a church that had some FreeMasonic undertones...it said " we are a fellowship of believers who pursue the God, who are passionately pursuing A LOST WORD"
I heard that he was giving the GMHSD when he was killed.JS was a Mason
It was reported that as he leapt from the building, he shouted words. Whether he was giving a sign of distress or importuning G-d, we do not know. However, the belief that he was communicating to Masonic brethren fueled animosity toward the fraternity by LDS members-- it gave credence to the belief they ignored his distress call.Very interesting!

Our JW is a LDS member. He told me that their ritual is very close to ours.I do remember hearing something once that the LDS church shares or has much similarities with the Masonic organization. Since I am not an LDS member, I can neither confirm nor deny. Seems like the church founder had Masonic ties...
There are outward similarities, fewer since the changes in the temple ceremony many years ago (no penalties are used). They tell different stories: the temple endowment is a creation play with Adam and Eve. Covenants are made with God and not our fellow man. Men and women participate. Ceremonial clothing is worn. There is no single candidate.Our JW is a LDS member. He told me that their ritual is very close to ours.
