They where a little pushy i told you maybe cause of the drinks i dont know
, pushy in a insistent way.
I'm curious; You have stated more than once that the Masons tried to "recruit" you, or coerce you into joining. Why? Why would thay want you, if
indeed it happened? What were the circumstances of your meeting them? How did you first come to the realization that they were Masons? Did you just
meet in a pub, by coincidence? Did you know them before? Were they aware of the quality of your character?
In your opinion what caused them to approach you? I ask this because as a general rule, "recruiting" of any kind is frowned upon by the fraternity.
There are some jurisdictions that have relaxed that rule, but IMO, it does a disservice to the Craft. Part of the whole experience of Freemasonry is
taht one is supposed to be seeking, and to be doing it of his own free will and accord, and with honorable intentions.
So basically what I've gotten so far from you as that:
1. You've only met two Masons, and you admit that you cannot form an opinion by only meeting two Masons.
2. You try to use the bible to condemn Masonry, when it is readily apparent that you do not understand the concepts presented, even in the Bible.
3. You have a staunchly anti-Masonic viewpoint, yet you can offer no concise arguments as to why this is so.
From what I can see your position on the matter, regardless of the fact that you are entitled to it, is unfounded.
Again, I ask you; Why do you feel the need to post the way you do regarding Masons and Masonry?
Yes axeman more than once in one day.
My best friend works in the media and there was this reunion not only with people from the local radio station but with other people among them that
My friend personaly didint know them but another guy that he works with knew them has he invited them.
And of course how it usualy hapens every body talks a little bit about them selfs when people dont usualy know each other you know stuff like what
what do you do for a living what is u'r ocupations and on and on.
It's not like they where beging us axeman to join, first they told us after a while that they are masons it's not like they came up to us and before
talking any thing they said they are masons and wants us to join i didint say that.
And of course i asked what is a mason after all has i knew very little about masons at that time i got a normal answer that they are a fraternity and
have charity but that they also do busines and it's easy to do cause they trust each other and that in this country there should be more masons has
their fraternity is not that big in this region and that we should join the club has they said.
Like sayng sort of "hey have you thot of joining"
The only thing strange to me is after that it's not like sayng it but with well put words sayng a couple of times you should join but with diffrent
words well put.
And it did seem strange cause usualy jehova witnes and other forms of minority cristian religions do that only that they where more subtile in their
words like sayng something that has 2 sences so i thot it was a religion.
I form a opinon on masons not regarding on them two but of what i read about them and i do got my opinions.
And i simply state read the enciclopedia.
The real reason is that there are too many coincidences not to be true.
When every thing is on the edge and there are coincidences and many of them i can not rule out masonari has a religion
your brother hood looks
almost the same has acient egipt too many coincidences
in fact the only difrent thing is that you denny you worship orisis and horis but the rest has simbol semnification is the same.
Further more i have my own belifes i posted the day before on the other thread what a religion is to me.
So i do belive that masonari is a religion.
