Interest in Freemasonry, but I might have some complications…

I’ve recently come across Freemasonry and I’ve been doing some research on it, and I have to say that I’m really intrigued by it.

My main concern is that I don’t have a religion… Yet I believe that there is a Superior Being for certain conclusive, or at least to me, reasons/actions that I don’t feel comfortable disclosing on the internet. But let us just say some things fell in to place remarkably well with remarkable timing and fixed/changed my life for the better… The one I’m talking about being the main one but there are other things that have happened where I remember thinking I was really lucky but I can’t think of them off the top of my head… :-/ Sounds kind of awkward, I know, but these things have just led me to believe that there must be some sort of Supreme Being? … Or maybe I just am hoping that there is a Supreme Being for the thought of an after-life… Is it Hope or is it Faith? I think there is a difference there, yes?... Well, my point being is that I don’t associate with any Religions. Christianity, the world’s largest religion, turns me off. I’m not exactly sure why, but it does, well certain aspects to at least, but not everything…. So, my problem is being able become a Mason yet not having an adopted religion but still having a belief in a Supreme Being…

I guess my best bet would be is sit down and read the Holy Texts of the World’s Religions and see if I can find another religion that I agree with…




How a man worships God is purely his private affair. Masonry is not a religion, but it certainly is about God, since it wants you to affirm your belief in the Almighty.

Does this mean I don’t necessarily have to have an adopted religion?

Correct. Your religion, or lack thereof, would be irrelevant in Masonry, as the Masonic fraternity welcomes all good men who believe in a Higher Power, regardless of sectarian religious creeds.

Thanks - for the reply and the information.


I still want to read other Religious texts, though...

And it is correct that you have to be 21 join the Masons, right? That means I have a couple years left to get my beliefs settled.
