Obviously I will returning here to ATS to find Lodge members should an important question arise.
I dont have a burning need to know anything right now, but I am complaining about a secret societies tendency to keep some truly profound and good
teachings secret form the masses. You yourself, sound like an open mind. But im under no delusions as to the partnerships and duel affiliations who
conspire to keep man in a lower, darker state. I have no knowledge of you and your Lodge that you hail to, so Im not addressing your particular
And dont degrees exist as a gateway, a step up closer to the light?
Arent you expecting something new and unknown to be revealed to you as you advance?
Why should I join a group of men that dress up in regalia in a promise of higher knowledge. Do i need a man to guide my curiosity, or can I do it
These questions can be asked of any Church.
This is the gatekeeper to knowledge im talking about. It has been ever present, yet has always been voluntary. Yes, Im sure many will claim that
there is nothing hidden to anyone, and they would be half right. But they dont speak for another who might seek to corrupt the message.
My problem is with most Organized Religion, ex; Freemasonry as a religion. Theres some great things about Freemasonry that Ive learned. The problem
is its made up of Humans. A religion of man seeking perfection.
-- sometimes I have to ask. How perfect do you think a man can get?
