I agree that religions like the Freemasons work under the direction of higher beings and that these beings present themselves as beings of light but even demons can appear as beings of light, so we are told in the NT.
I don't believe they are working for the good of humanity. The evidence simply doesn't point that way. Freemasonry is two organisations, one is on the inside and the other is for those in the lower degrees. It's the ones in the inside who steal democracy from the people and give it to rulers who abuse their power to promote their own self interest and that of the establishment elite.
