The Great Commission is to make friends?

   

     Seeking unity with those who deny the sole Divinely-Constitued Church established by Jesus Christ (and His Commandments) without them first repudiating their errors  and converting to the One True Faith is to do the work of the Devil.

It is within the lifetime of ABS that one could understand such an impetus being actualised by Masonry * (and only Masonry) but not by the One True Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church but that was prior to the revolution within the form of Catholicism which supplanted Salvific Theocentrism with political and social Anthropocentrism.

Jesus gives us what we want and we want  man and we want unity at all cost no matter whether we unify with those who reject the Church Jesus established or whether we unify with those who reject the Sacramental System established by Jesus or whether we unify with those who reject the Commandments of Jesus.

We want a unity that reconciles Christ with Belial.

And still invisibilium within the Hierarchy is that Prelate whose puissant possession of Tradition is such that it could be used as a force against our Inertia Into Indifferentism.

Statement on Freemasonry and Religion

Prepared by the Masonic Information Center

Basic Principles. Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It requires of its members a belief in God as part of the obligation of every responsible adult, but advocates no sectarian faith or practice. Masonic ceremonies include prayers, both traditional and extempore, to reaffirm each individual’s dependence on God and to seek divine guidance. Freemasonry is open to men of any faith, but religion may not be discussed at Masonic meetings.

The Supreme Being. Masons believe that there is one God and that people employ many different ways to seek, and to express what they know of God. Masonry primarily uses the appellation, “Grand Architect of the Universe,” and other non-sectarian titles, to address the Deity. In this way, persons of different faiths may join together in prayer, concentrating on God, rather than differences among themselves. Masonry believes in religious freedom and that the relationship between the individual and God is personal, private, and sacred.

Volume of the Sacred Law. An open volume of the Sacred Law, “the rule and guide of life,” is an essential part of every Masonic meeting. The Volume of the Sacred Law in the Judeo/Christian tradition is the Bible; to Freemasons of other faiths, it is the book held holy by them.

The Oath of Freemasonry. The obligations taken by Freemasons are sworn on the Volume of the Sacred Law. They are undertakings to follow the principles of Freemasonry and to keep confidential a Freemason’s means of recognition. The much discussed “penalties,” judicial remnants from an earlier era, are symbolic, not literal. They refer only to the pain any honest man should feel at the thought of violating his word.

Freemasonry Compared with Religion. Freemasonry lacks the basic elements of religion: (a) It has no dogma or theology, no wish or means to enforce religious orthodoxy. (b) It offers no sacraments. (c) It does not claim to lead to salvation by works, by secret knowledge, or by any other means. The secrets of Freemasonry are concerned with modes of recognition, not with the means of salvation.

Freemasonry Supports Religion. Freemasonry is far from indifferent toward religion. Without interfering in religious practice, it expects each member to follow his own faith and to place his Duty to God above all other duties. Its moral teachings are acceptable to all religions.

Are we all to be Masons now?


And what is the obsession with sameness?
  
    Human lungs and pears have roughly the same among of water – 83%- but, say, were one to have cancerous lungs, a man would not be too keen on a Doctor suggesting surgery in which a pair of pears replaced his pair of lungs.
