Freemasonry is a voluntary, fraternal organization, composed of men of good will, good character and good reputation, whom in most jurisdictions around the world, believe in an Almighty Creator and practice the spirit of universal brotherhood to man.

They are loyal to their country and devote their time to the principles of friendship and fellowship.  Their focus is to be of service to all mankind.

For many men, Freemasonry fulfills a part of themselves that they intrinsically felt was missing.  Whether it be the social, the philosophical, the spiritual, the historical or simply a sense of community with others; you will find within Freemasonry that part of you which you seek.

Free Masons help to build a better world through a unique and worthy process of building better men to live in it.  The Free Mason Motto is:  "Better men make a better world."
You will learn to practice brotherly love for all, charitable relief for those who may be in need, morality and good citizenship in every community.Freemasonry acts as a charitable, fraternal, educational, social and character-building society.Masonry's active ideal is the brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God.

RIGIN OF THE WORD FREEMASONS.

Tracing Board. Artwork by Ferenc Sebök The first-known use of the word Freemasons - in the form Free Masons - occurs in City of London Letter-book H of 9 August 1376, though the word is in fact deleted in favour of Mason. Masons and Freemasons were interchangeable during the 15th and 16th centuries and Freemasons were generally meant to denote hewers or setters of freestone, Masons being used to embrace all stoneworkers. Ashmole in his diary wrote that he was made a Free Mason and referred in 1686 to the "Fellowship of Free Masons". James Anderson when writing his 1723 Constitutions did not use the single word - Freemasons - once. Whatever the reasons, the 1723 Constitutions contain approximately 126 references to Masons, 12 to Free Masons, 10 to Free and Accepted Masons, 9 to Free-Masons, one to Accepted Free Masons and none to Freemasons. And such is the tenacity of tradition that to this day the most of the Constitutions are addressed to Free and Accepted Masons and not to Accepted Freemasons. The earliest-known anti-masonic leaflet, of 1698, warns the public against "those called Free Masons" - almost certainly what we now know as speculative Freemasons.

When we speak of the spirit of Masonry we are thinking of something apart from its membership, organization or ritual, and yet inseparably connected with them, as the soul with the body. We are thinking of the essential principle of Masonry, that which is its real life and true intent, .that which like the ancient landmarks is constant and unvarying and abiding, the same from age to age. The Spirit of Masonry is indeed the soul of the Institution, and it is its salt, that which has preserved it through all the centuries, through the mutations of empires and kingdoms, through all the storms of popular prejudice, from the time it was first set up upon the Eastern plains down to our own day. 

To address this, here's a list of things that Masons believe:

bullet

In a Supreme Being. It is a requirement of becoming a Mason.

bullet

That temperance, fortitude, prudence and justice - the four cardinal virtues - should be a part of our lives.

bullet

The practice of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth will help us be better men.

bullet

Chocolate ice cream is better than strawberry.

bullet

Hockey is a FAR more interesting sport than soccer.

bullet

The Red Sox will win the World Series of Baseball and Scotland will take the World Cup in Soccer.

bullet

Coke should have never dropped 'New Coke'.

bullet

Meat Loaf is the greatest singer in history.


It will be sunny tomorrow....

 

Now as you've read through that list, I suspect that you realized there are precious few 'absolute' things that Masons believe. Obviously, we could get into a pretty heated debate over the relative merits of Meat Loaf's singing versus that of - say - Mario Lanza or Abba or Willy Nelson but can we ever conclude that - for all Masons - coffee ice cream 'takes the cake' over vanilla?

In order to become a Mason, one must assent to a belief in a Supreme Being. How, specifically, that belief is interpreted or how it is addressed in one's daily life is left up to the individual. Freemasonry NEVER tries to describe or explain that to the candidate/member. Some Masons are Christian, some are Jewish, some don't subscribe to a particular religious belief set. Some are politically far to the right while others are far to the left - and there are a whole bunch in between. Some support the right to keep and bear arms while others find this concept particularly offensive to their sensibilities. Some are actively engaged in the political affairs of their locale and country while others couldn't care less.


 

RELIGION OF FREEMASONRY

Since Freemasonry claims to be a religion, the most important teaching it can hold for its adherents is the correct instruction as to what happens to the eternal souls of its adherents. At this point, I can hear the protestations of many Masons, saying that Freemasonry is not a religion. Rather than having me answer that question, I think we should allow the greatest Freemason of all time, Albert Pike, answer that for us. Listen to his words: [Emphasis mine]

 

1) "Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction of religion." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 213, teachings of the 13th Degree, Royal Arch of Solomon]

 

2) "Masonry ... is the universal, eternal immutable religion, such as God planted it in the heart of universal humanity. No creed has ever been long-lived that was not built on this foundation ... The ministers of this religion are all Masons who comprehend it and are devoted to it; its sacrifices to God are good works, the sacrifices of the base and disorderly passions, the offering up of self-interest on the altar of humanity, and perpetual efforts to attain to all the moral perfection of which man is capable." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 219, teachings of the 14th Degree, Grand Elect, Perfect, and Sublime Mason]

 

3) "Perfect truth is not attainable anywhere ... thus Masonry is a continual struggle toward the light ... Religion, to obtain currency and influence with the great mass of mankind, must needs be alloyed with such an amount of error as to place it far below the standard attainable by the higher human capacities ... The religion of the many must necessarily be more incorrect than that of the refined and reflective few ..." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 224, teachings of the 14th Degree, Grand Elect, Perfect, and Sublime Mason]

 

4) "We do not undervalue the importance of any Truth. We utter no word that can be deemed irreverent by any one of any faith. We do not tell the Moslem that it is only important for him to believe that there is but one God, and wholly unessential whether Mahomet was His prophet. We do not tell the Hebrew that the Messiah whom he expects was born in Bethlehem nearly two thousand years ago; and that he is a heretic because he will not so believe. And as little do we tell the sincere Christian that Jesus of Nazareth was but a man like us, or His history but the unreal revival of an older legend. To do either is beyond our jurisdiction. Masonry, of no one age, belongs to all time; of no religion, it finds its great truths in all." ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 524, teachings of the 26th Degree, Prince of Mercy or Scottish Trinitarian]

 

5) "Though Masonry is identical with the Ancient Mysteries, it is so in this qualified sense; that it presents but an imperfect image of their brilliancy." (In other words, while Masonry is identical in teaching to the Ancient Mysteries, it is not as good, not as brilliant.) ["Morals and Dogma", Albert Pike, page 524, teachings of the 28th Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept]

 

Thus, we have the testimony of Freemasonry that it is a religion, but it is not just any religion. Rather, Masonry purports to be the religion espoused by the Ancient Mysteries, especially their beloved Egypt. We have been reporting some of the teachings of another famous Freemason book, by Norman Frederick de Clifford, "Egypt The Cradle Of Ancient Masonry". In this book, we see the awe of the Mason toward Ancient Egypt, and we see it expressed on nearly every single page. The damning indictment of this awe toward the Ancient Mysteries' Religion of Egypt and of its culture, is that God, Jehovah, the God of the Holy Bible, condemned this Ancient Religion and its culture, and brought it into physical judgment, destroying it completely! You can read of much of this judgment in Exodus, as God was bringing the many plagues against Egypt, in order to deliver the Israelites from their bondage.

Free Mason is a society of people with free minds. People with extra ordinary minds(Big thinkers) and who always wants to do better for the community. Ni jamii ya watu wanaotaka kusaidia jamii. Ni watu wenye HISANI kwa jamii inayowazunguka.
