First, what I'm going to write in this post is based on the following quote being true:
You can't leave Freemasonry, once a Freemason, always a Freemason.
I don't know if that quote is true. Perhaps a Freemason or two will not agree with that statement. But, it's my understanding that it's a true
With that in mind, this is my metaphor for joining Freemasonry:
You're given a ten-page contract where the first paragraph is filled in and there's a place for you to sign on page ten. You're then told that you'll
have to follow the entire contract but you won't find out what will be written past the first paragraph for some time. The contents of the contract
will be revealed to you slowly over time but you'll be bound by all of it anyway.
Is that a good metaphor for Freemasonry? As I have no first-hand experience with Freemasonry, I'm not sure if I'm right about my metaphor. I believe
that the contract slowly being revealed to a person is a good metaphor for progressing through the degrees.
If my metaphor is correct, I question the wisdom of becoming a Freemason. I wouldn't consider doing such a thing under any circumstances.
