Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It demands of its members a belief in a Supreme Being but provides no system of faith of its own.
Freemasonry is open to men of all religious faiths. The discussion of religion at its meetings is forbidden.
The Supreme Being
The names used for the Supreme Being enable men of different faiths to join in prayer (to God as each sees Him) without the terms of the prayer causing dissention among them.
There is no separate Masonic God; a Freemason's God remains the God of the religion he professes.
Freemasons meet in common respect for the Supreme Being, but He remains Supreme in their individual religions, and it is no part of Freemasonry to attempt to join religions together. There is therefore no composite Masonic God.
The Crest - consists of a golden ark, supported by two cherubs. These have the upper part of the body in a natural flesh tint, with lower half covered in brown fur. Their wings are golden, and above them in Hebrew is the motto 'Holiness to the Lord'. The background to the crest consists of golden rays of light radiating around the ark. The crest stands on a 'wreath of the colours'. This is depicted as a twisted wreath of two pieces of material, the alternating colours of which are gold and red.
A leap too far maybe?
