I'm sorry to hear about the burnings.

It is commendable that you stand by your integrity and beliefs.

Alchemy, a study long cherished by the Masons, was a metaphor for the transformation of the human mind and soul. Using science to prove God, and using spiritual science to transform the mind and soul into tools for changing the world, were the Freemason way.

This is why I have a lot of respect for the natural elements. Each of them has something to contribute to the quality of our souls. Water for calm and justice, air for balance and flexibility, earth for patience and confidence, and fire for passion and intuition.

These are what the elements bring to our souls. This is the beauty of nature.

There is an interesting portion of the Entered Apprentice Lecture that references this.

As I said, I am very interested in becoming a Mason. It reflects a great deal of my own values and curiosities.

That's just plain foolishness. If the Freemasons had wanted to destroy religion, all they have to do is get the Priory of Sion to release the location of the Holy Grail. Once the Holy Grail is found, the world will thunder with the fall of Christianity...and it will thunder once more with the rise of all-out anarchy and world war.

Alchemy is an interesting study, but I'm very much a novice at it. Timothy Hogan wrote an interesting book on Alchemy and Freemasonry.

The human mind and soul transforms even if one is completely oblivious to the study of alchemy.
I do not believe that water brings me calm and justice, I do not believe that air gives me balance and flexibility, and I do not believe that the existence of mud and clay will bring me patience and confidence, nor do I believe that fire gives me passion and intuition.
Of course my physical being is dependent on water, air, ground, and fire, but these do not give me peace of mind, as so many others can attest to that merely breathing or eating or drinking does not quench the desire for love and acceptance.
Our bodies can be destroyed by means of water, by oxygen, by mud, and by fire, by animals, by humans, by bacteria, but all the money in the world could never give me what my soul needs, a clean conscience.
I read that a diety is required to become a Mason, doesn't matter what deity you believe in so long as you keep quiet about their rituals oaths and "secrets", oh and so long as you have the money.
IMO science is observation. As spiritual beings, each and every one of us, we make spiritual observations whether we know it or not.

So, what are you saying here? That if it weren't for the Freemasons, Christianity would be no more?
I would not be surprised if it were so. Christians often tell themselves, "we are no longer under the law" by that they mean that they don't consider God's law anymore because they beleive that God never made laws that people could fullfill. I don't consider myself a Christian, and even more so if it is as you say, upheld because Freemasonry wishes it so.

You still think the holy grail is a material object?

Ok, I'll bite. What is it that you logically believe, and what steps did you take to reach your hypothesis?
