“No true Mason is creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in Temple, Mosque, or Cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth… No true Mason can be narrow, for his Lodge is the divine expression of all broadness.”
Manly P. Hall
20th Century Mason
1.) All true Masons are bound by the Creed that there is no Creed to be bound by except their Creed of no Creed.
2.) The Mason religion is NOT universal because it excises all religions which insist that the putative universal religion of the Masons is sin.
3.) If light-bearers come bringing different lights then it is the height of stupidity to say one only follows the light and not the light bearer. I must conclude Masons are stupid.
4.) Does the Mason recognize the oneness of the Spiritual truth that insists that Spiritual truth is not one?
5.) All Masons are narrow because they eliminate all those faith expressions which insist that their way alone is one true way… just the same as Masons.
The first Church I ministered had Masons in the congregation. They were an elderly couple. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. I wish the Southerner Reformed folk worried as much about Masons as they do about White Supremacy.
