Why are so many men joining Free Masons?
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.
If I become a Free Mason, what is their Mission?
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."
What principles will I learn?
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.
What type of fraternal society is Free Masonry?
Freemasonry acts as a charitable, fraternal, educational, social and character-building society.
Freemasonry supports public education and teaches its own members morality and brotherhood by means of ceremonies and symbols.
The Masonic Fraternity furnishes opportunity and inducement for men to gather for group enjoyment and personal development.
All Masonic activities stress the values of personal integrity and personal responsibility. Each of the 3 degrees within a lodge culminates in a man becoming a Master Mason.
Each member is encouraged to make efforts to improve his community in the interest of human welfare, inspire the members with feelings of charity and good will for all mankind as well as move them to translate these learned principles and convictions into individual action.
What will I learn if I become a Free Mason?
You will learn biblical history from the days of Solomon's Temple, throughout the Middle Ages In Europe, Masonic Speculative Lodges and Grand Orient Lodges were being formed in each country.
Many exact dates of historical events are sometimes difficult to discern, however Masonic records show that these Grand Lodges were formed in: England in 1717, Ireland in 1725, France in 1728, the United States in 1730 and Scotland in 1736.
If you wish to study and learn, the Holy Scriptures will finally begin to come alive to you with their real people and their successes and failures. You will learn biblical truths with the Supreme Architect of the Universe, as your Master.
If I contact someone to become a Free Mason, will I receive a continuous barrage of spam and junk mail?
In some jurisdictions, a man wishing to become a Free Mason must of his own free will, ask to become a Free Mason. In other jurisdictions, (a few U.S. states and in England), a man wishing to become a Free Mason may be invited to join by a current member who feels that he would be an asset to the Fraternity.
In either case, each and every man comes to Freemasonry of his own free will and accord.
Every man who wishes to become a Free Mason (whether he requests to be admitted as a member or whether he has been invited to be admitted to the fraternity) must be investigated as to his background and then balloted upon by his prospective Lodge's brethren.
If I join Freemasons, will I learn Freemasons secrets and Masonic Lodge Secrets?
Yes. But, if Freemasons secrets and Masonic Lodge secrets are your main reason for joining, your enthusiasm will soon diminish. Here are the Freemason's secrets: They are the grips, passwords, penal signs and ritual work.
The remainder of the craft of Freemasonry is found in the Holy Books around the world, the Old Charges, which are old Manuscripts and Old Lodge Charters which date back to 1390, and in Freemason books.
In fact, if you are considering becoming a Free Mason, the easiest way to begin learning about Freemasonry is to begin right here on this website.
I hear and read about Free Masons being satanic, taking part in pagan rites, attempting to create a New World Order (NWO), such as the New World Order videos on YouTube, and their plans to take over the world. Is any of this true?
No. In fact, let's consider this, rationally, at greater length. Entire countries and civilizations have come, gone and changed in the several hundred year period during which Freemasonry has existed.
If Freemasons were, in fact, attempting to take over the world, (having approximately 300+ years in which to accomplish such a feat), one could only come to the logical conclusion that these Masonic secrets are either tremendously well-kept (from both Freemasons and non-Freemasons) or... that after all this time, Free Masons aren't very effective planners.
Is Free Masonry a secret Masonic society?
Free Masonry's "secret" inheritance from the past is largely ceremonial. The Masonic Freemason fraternity meets in Masonic halls and temples, whose addresses are in the telephone books in the United States. However, it is difficult to call a specific lodge because most only meet a couple times a month, therefore, if you stop by, there probably won't be anyone there.
Many member's vehicles display Masonic emblems such as the Square and Compass. or the famous 2B1Ask1, ... To-Be-One-Ask-One bumper sticker.
Newspapers and magazines record many of their activities and list their officers....and their charity work and events are not only very public, but very well attended.
Each jurisdiction has a Grand Lodge. A list of Grand Lodges around the world can easily be found on Google. Each state in the United States also has a Grand Lodge. Subordinate lodges fall under their Grand Lodge's jurisdiction. Most Masonic organizations also have Websites.
I read and hear a lot about the belief in Masonic pentagrams in the streets of Washington, D.C., secret Masonic conspiracies, Anti-Christian and anti-Bible beliefs, etc. If I become a Free Mason, will I learn more about these?
There aren't any....which is why none can be "uncovered". If your sole reason to join Freemasonry is to learn more about these types of Masonic myths, media hype, the occult and other supposed Masonic secrets, you will be deeply disappointed.
Is Free Masonry Anti-Christian?
Is Freemasonry a religion?
No. Freemasonry encompasses and welcomes members from all religions.
If I become a Free Mason, will I be expected to change my religion?
Absolutely not. The foundation of Freemasonry is the brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God. Only those who are truly religious can fully understand the meaning of "universal brotherhood".
Except in a very few jurisdictions around the world, only those who believe in a Supreme Being can be members of the Masonic Fraternity. There are no specific religions mentioned in Masonic ceremonies nor in Masonic prayers.
Freemasonry is not a church, a tabernacle, a mosque nor a synagogue, nor is it a substitute for any of them or for any religious observance.
Freemasonry is non-sectarian, which means it is not affiliated with nor restricted to any particular religious denomination. The form of a man's belief is his own business. In fact, many active Masons are active religious laymen.
In the United States, most lodges use the Holy Bible, however, if you are of another religion, you may request that your sacred holy book (Torah, Veda, Koran, etc.) be placed beside the Bible during lodge meetings. Some lodges have several sacred books to accommodate the different religions of its members.
Lodges whose members are wholly of a specific religion may choose to use their sacred books only.
Is Free Masonry a political group?
No. In fact, both politics and specific religions are discouraged from being mentioned in lodge because to do so may negate its collective peace, harmony, and thus, its universality of spirit.
What do Freemasons do?
Freemasons are a fraternity of brothers who attempt to follow our Creator's plan for us and to help each man be the best man that he can be. In different languages, the Creator is known by different names. He may be called God, Allah, Jehovah, YHWH, I Am That I Am and others.
Can I quit being a Freemason if I want to?
Any Mason in good standing (whose annual dues are paid) may withdraw from membership at any time.
