I cannot help but think that this is a contrived post. It is simply too icky and sweet. Every sentence lauds the Masons...it reeks of being disingenuous and promoting the Masons. I have no doubt that the poster is a Mason or the wife of one. I betcha..I am a pretty savvy reader, and this is just too much of a multi-pointed promotion of Masonic ' values ' to be accidental. Maybe I am on the cautios side, but this seems like a ' gimme 'from a Mason admirer that goes a bit overboard. Just my take..
"Indeed, I want to tell you in the name of the truth that skepticism exists because of ignorance. Therefore, the day when the people awaken their consciousness they will stop being ignorant, and, as a fact, skepticism will disappear, because ignorance is equal to skepticism and vice versa.
Indeed, Gnosis is not a doctrine that seeks to convince skeptical people, because if today we convince 100 skeptical individuals, tomorrow we have to convince 10,000, and if we convince the 10,000, then 100,000 will appear who want to be convinced, and so on and so forth, thus, we will never be done." - Samael Aun Weor
I personally have my own Christian faith and I believe it is true regardless of what everyone thinks,
but I do not quote scripture telling you that your gnosticism is heresy -

You won't find one, because there is no one source that speaks for masonry.

I'm sorry, but Freemasonry as a whole is supposed to be uplifting humanity; not bogging us down further into dogma and materialism.

feel free to make your own thread on "Hidden Occult Symbols and Beliefs used in Medicine," but please, refrain from using other people's threads as your own springboard for a different topic.
This thread is about a specific outlet of Freemasonry, and the work they do, not some broad "Occult Medicine" discussion, although that sounds interesting as well.
