Once again you haven't answered the original question Freemason and MA you aren't helping.
On the topic of Freemason, it is so vast it's hard to explain to a person just toutching the topic for the first time. Of course there are two sides
to it. One saying Freemasonry is the best stuff ever to be seen on earth. Others saying its a secret society bent on taking over the world. Now
there is of course those in between those two extremes.
Now getting real information on the topic is difficult because two reasons. The first is because there a society with many well hidden secrets. The
second the higher up you get in freemasonry, the more difficult it is to get real facts.
I've read so many points of view on the topic it makes my head spin. I've got a copy of the Masonic Monitor. I starting reading it and many
questionable things came up. But that is for you to decide.
Freemasonry is organized into 33 degrees. The higher you go in the degrees the more "inlighted" your suppose to become. To become a mason there
are a few requirments one of which you must believe in a higher power, while in some sects even athiest are excepted. Many of there rituals seem to
have Eygptian origin. When there is a new member there is a re-birth ritual of such that the member must go through before joining. Very much like a
This is a part of the ritual I found a bit odd:
"You are aware that whatever a man may have gained here on earth, whether of titles, wealth, honor, or even his own merit, can never serve him a
passport to the Grand Lodge above: but previous to his gaining admission there he must become poor and destitute, blind and naked, DEPENDENT upon the
SOVEREIGN will of our Suprem Grand Master."
Now while Freemason and MA will claim that there talking about God or explain away why this isn't odd at all. This to me sounds like your allowing
your self to be in complete submission to a person.
While there are many good Freemason's that are good poeple. Freemasonry's reputation hasn't been a very positive one. The secretive nature alone
can cause people alone to be against such a society.
Many people put Freemasonry under such a microsope because it is much more then then a moral society. Freemason's have been president's, many of
them might I add. Congressman, senators, big biz men runnig large corperations. Doctor's, & lawyers,. One might ask, hmmm isn't there something
to that? Could such an organization that has survived in the vail of secrective nature. Be influencing politics, money, and religion.
I think it is completly reasonable to ask such a question.
