What I'm talking about is the story of "The first man", Sorry I forget his name. But he was supposed to build a temple for worship or in honor of
God "The Grand Architect"...Or something of this sort, it's been a while so I may be off in some names and details, hopefully Freemason can fix my
mistakes. Anyway, he was then killed by 3 demon figures that were supposed to be helping, but decided to kill their father instead. So they were
punished and God hid the body of "The first man" for them to find and in turn learn their mistake in what they had done.
I know that is probably a real mutilated version, but the point is, if that is true and is taught it does have religious ideals, especially if you
read the real version. One thing I did like though was the fact that within that same story it taught that Masons should feel free to worship at all
temples cause of the understanding that there is 1 truth or 1 God, name not important, so although religious scripture may vary, the True God at the
end of all of them is still the same. Also I liked what it said about Masons, especially at the high levels were modest and labored for the
betterment of all men. That any knowledge one may have over another does not make him any better but in a way should make him more understanding and
accepting of his fellow man or even a guide when needed and asked for. Is that still what is taught, basically anyway.
It also said something about how the knowledge really didn't need to be secret for the fact that the knowledge alone isn't the key. It is the
understanding of that knowledge, or the Wisdom, that is the real power of such information. This is also what I think, so the secrecy of it is what I
don't get. unless it's the fact that knowlege is power, wisdom makes the weilding of such power useful, so letting such knowledge into the hands of
those who would unwisely use it causing destruction of his brothers, is why it's hidden. Am I getting the right message??
