Freemasonry is a system of allegory and symbol arranged in peculiar fashion to convey a unique message. Some condemn Freemasonry by saying is a religion, when it does act to bring a tradition forward like a religion, but in fact practices no particular faith. The uniting idea is a faith in the divine founded in the certitude in something greater than the self.
A Freemason is a man who, in searching for life’s ineffable questions, finds his way into the company of fellow seekers. Comprised of men from every nation, races, social and economic level, all hold similar ideals and beliefs. The uniting idea is a faith in the divine founded in the certitude in an afterlife. This “belief” is grounded by certain landmark tenants and virtues which ultimately lead in exploration of those invisible questions, and when taught openly and learned in earnest by the initiates, can lead ultimately to the betterment of all mankind.
If this description seems out of place in the cynical world of today, let us remember that “Man does not live by bread alone.”
