FUNDAMENTALS OF FREEMASONRY
Freedom or religion, of conscience, and of thought are Freemasonry's highest goal. Freemasonry accepts without religious, racial, national or political prejudice or regard to station in life, upright and moral men as Brothers. Freemasonry recognizes in the structure of the World in all that lives in the inner consciousness of man a divine Creator-Spirit, full of Wisdom, Strength, and Beauty, and reveres Him as the Great Architect of the Universe. Freemasonry's a moral, not a political order and takes no part in political or religious disputes. It is not a religious society, not a secret alliance, demands no unlawful secrecy and imparts no magical information.
Freemasonry is a fraternal organization dedicated to Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
Brotherly Love: How a man chooses to practice his personal religious beliefs is left entirely up to him, but Freemasonry recognizes the strong bond which unites all people under One Creator. Our members include men from a wide range of religious backgrounds, but each of them shares a commitment to this important principle.
The seven great world religions listed below each tells us of the importance of "Brotherly Love."
While we may each practice how we name, address, or serve The Great Architect Of The Universe somewhat differently, we universally subscribe to and practice "man's humanity to man" as commanded by our creator.
This "Golden Rule" is commanded of all men and knows no boundaries of religion, denomination or nation. It is the very foundation of Freemasonry throughout the world and throughout the ages.
Relief: Because of our strong bond of Brotherly Love, Masons provide Relief to help those who are in need. This includes the notion of charity, and Masons provide much assistance to worthy charities, but it also means offering a helping hand, in other ways, to people that need assistance.
Truth: As Masons, we are committed to being honest and truthful with other people. The Masonic Fraternity teaches a man to be faithful to his responsibilities to God, his Country, his fellow man, his family and himself. The Masonic principle of Truth also teaches a man to search for wisdom and understanding. For only in this way can he grow and become a better person. The pursuit of knowledge is at the very heart of our purpose.
To conclude, a true story to what Masonic Brotherly Love is all about!!!!
In pursuing this doctrine, the following, though not exclusive, is considered to be basic Masonic Beliefs.
