As surely as God is Great... so too is their resemblance.
BUT... But the question remains.
"Who is as Cain... And who is as Abel?
One God/Gaotu to receive them both... yet each with respective gifts.
Whom does God favor?... and will jealousy drive one mad???
To notion of sacraments... there is what the Freemason call "Landmarks".
An immovable piece of furniture designed to be revered.
Funny it is because with the Roman Catholics... there is what is known as "Holy Ground".
An immovable piece of land which is for reverence.
Landmark -vs- Holy Ground. Huh?
Deep within... inside the chamber of reflection there are three mysterious elements.
The water, sulfur, and salt. The first of the is coincidentally described by Roman Catholics as the "Baptism".
Sulfur... like Hellfire (metaphorically) is similar to the sacrament known as "Communion".
Wherein Christ endured the suffering and gave both body and blood.
Those who to the end endured became "Salt of the earth" a thing manifested by the sacrament of "Confirmation".
The Trinity... whether holy or not... is clearly seen in both Freemasonry and... obviously... Roman Catholicism.
Master as oppose to Father...
Apprentice as oppose to Son...
Craft as oppose to Holy Spirit...
To say the least... one is surely as Cain.
Other similarities are...
Two emblems which can be construed as a six point star.
Crossed keys with crown and the compass and square.
And lastly... I ask... whose gifts are favored most?
Don't get cranky on me... I'm just saying
