Freemasonry; What Is It And What Is It Not?

Going through the Internet, one finds claims and counter-claims about this most controversial fraternity; Freemasonry.

Even masonic scholars differ in views of history, origins etc, which makes one wonder "is a tree rated by it's roots or by its friuts?". What are the fruits of Masonry? What does it teach behind the walls of the Lodge and in graded degrees? Is it esotericism, mysticism or pure philosophy? If any of the above, then, how is it related to new-age? For instance, the Rosicrucians.

I agree with you on this.People of above average intelligence with a strong desire to render service to humanity are more drawn to fraternities. However, they are only using outdated methods. It may have had its place many centuries ago but in the 21st century,we now use superior methods that makes all fraternities and the occult irrelevant.

I agree with you. But I am not speaking as a member of the general public.

Freemasonry is a peculiar system of morality illustrated by signs and symbols.

The reason why many authors have differences is how they interpret the Masonic symbols.

Also you should know that they are just authors expressing their OWN views on what they think Freemasonry is.Nobody speaks for Freemasonry , though there are many Grand Lodges and they are all autonomous.

Another thing you should know is anybody can write and publish anything on the net, that doesn't make it true, or false.

Freemasonry has no creed and it doesn't pretend to be a religion.It only asks that members believe in a Supreme Being.It is not for Freemasonry to insist on how you want to relate with your creator as long as you acknowledge you were put on this earth by something greater than you.

The only way to understand Masonry is to immerse yourself in its symbols, and this can take a long time.

I am writing from experience and not what known and unknown people have written online.

I have no regrets being one though I am very hesitant to recommend people as you have to be of a certain character to appreciate Freemasonry and what it teaches.

Masonry is a way of life.Some may grasp its teachings in a few months, while others might take many years, and some would never grasp its teachings.Such is life.

@validator,

Are you speaking from a rational point of view, experience or a sense of phobia which generally surrounds the Unknown? Freemasory is an organisation which has a long has a long history and yet no one knows it's true nature. All what we have today are mere speculation even on the side of the Masonic Scholars. If knowlegde is truly dispensed in this fraternity then why the concealment? Maybe something of value that is only meant for those who are "worthy". Don't you think so?

they are all the same and use the same tricks.

1They have found lots of loopholes and inconsistencies in the mainstream orthodox religions (christianity,islam,judaism,etc)

2 They are aware that every person with above average intelligence and of course armed with the power of analysis can not be satisfied with the inconsistencies of the mainstream religions

3They claim to offer you a way to undistorted truths but you will have to become a member of their group first.

But what you will get is that:

Decades after you join the group you are still as blind as you started.
