Freemasonry hand in Nairobi’s architecture

March 31, 2008 at 9:27 pm 402 comments

Freemasonry and Kenyan issues; talk about that and you are likely to elicit varied responses from those listening to you.

A society with secrets, Freemasonry is as much feared by some as it is loved by those who adhere to its tenets. 

It teaches the inclusive nature of all religions, among its other controversial characteristics.

You only need to believe in a supreme being.

The beliefs one holds become an opinion among many.

No place typifies the early and contemporary history of Freemasonry in Kenya like the city of Nairobi. 

Nairobi was, in its early days, an empty place predominantly occupied by wild animals.

However, the Kikuyu lived to the west of Nairobi; Maasais to the south and Kambas to the east.

At this time, these communities had little contact with the Christian Gospel and therefore were animists – involved in African Traditional Religion.

The original founders of the city were Europeans, Asians, Arabs and Somalis.

The Asians, Arabs, Somalis and the Swahilis brought in Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism and Jainism.

Some of the oldest buildings are from these particular religions.

But it is the European settler community which brought in Freemasonry.

There was a marked increase in the activity of Satanists and other occult activists in the city and country as a whole until a presidential inquiry in demonic worship was established during the reign of retired President Daniel Arap Moi .

The report was handed to the president in 1995 and released in 1999 to religious leaders.

Sources suggest that false religions, cults and occultist activities are headquartered in Nairobi.

 The Europeans and settlers who founded Nairobi certainly had Freemasons within their number.

By 1901 there was a Freemasonry lodge in the new town.

In Nairobi: A Jubilee History it is noted that:

Development of Government Road, then known as the Station Road, was sufficiently advanced in 1901 for the Municipal Committee to assume responsibility for its policing, lighting and cleansing. Municipal Notice No. 3 issued in March assessing the annual rentals, gives us an accurate picture of the first businesses contacted in that street. Firstly, there was Rossenrode, MacJohn & Company who built a hotel which was rented at some time by Tommy Wood as a tea room.

T.A. Wood later built White House in Government Road, when it was developed and a Major Rayne took over the whole of his old hotel, a portion of which was used as a Masonic Lodge (emphasis added).

This building, hosting the Masonic lodge was burned in 1905 as a sanitation measure against plague. The next Masonic hall was built where the Central Bank stands. In 1935, the plot opposite the All Saints Cathedral (then called Cathedral of the Highlands) was granted to the Masonic Trustees to put up the current building at the site.

Freemasonry was to play a great role in the development of the city. Since it is a religion based on the ancient and mystery religions of Egypt, there are Masonic symbols and signs all over the city.

From the testimonies of converted Satanists there are also witches’ covens in the city.

They meet in houses and offices.

Because of their secrecy there is no known place they use.

Still on Freemasonry, their influence on Kenyan Christianity would prove to be definitive in several ways. 

According to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church of East Africa’s Moderators report of November 2003 (published in Spark magazine, February 2005) most of the missionaries in late 1800s and early 1900s were missionaries-cum-Freemasons.

Their research, which was undertaken for 10 years focusing on Freemasonry in the Church of Scotland Mission/PCEA, revealed that the missionaries-cum-Freemasons using parish/come mentality bought or were granted land on which they built buildings that extensively incorporated Freemasonry signs and symbols.

Incidentally, Anglican and Roman Catholic Church buildings were not spared.

According to this report, this ensured that Freemasons could manipulate legitimate worship in churches through psychic energy released through Freemasonry signs and symbols.

Their conclusion from the research is that Biblical Christianity is totally incompatible with Freemasonry.

During the 1920s the planning of the municipal town of Nairobi began in earnest.

The government architect during this time was Mr. J.A. Hoogterp who later in the early 1930s resettled in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Sir Herbert Baker, who visited in 1925 and 1926 to handle several on-going and future projects, was a Freemason.

Subsequent plans were designed to make Nairobi the East African headquarters for various organizations.

The comparative plans for the layout of the town were drawn from: Washington D.C, the political, legislative and judicial capital of the USA; Paris, the capital city of France; Cape Town, the legislative capital of South Africa; Pretoria, the executive capital of South Africa; Canberra, the executive capital of Australia; New Delhi, the capital city of India and La Plata, an Argentinean city. 

All the above cities are widely recognized as Masonic-designed cities. 

A search on the internet also revealed they have Masonic signs and symbols.

In Paris, at Place De La Concorde (originally called Place De La Revolution where priests and Christian nobles were guillotined during the French Revolution) a 246-tonne and 92ft obelisk from Luxor, Egypt was erected in 1835.

It was a gift of the Viceroy of Egypt, Mohamed Ali to the king of France, Charles X.

This obelisk had stood at Luxor, Egypt for 3,500 years.

At Louvre, which is shaped like a Masonic temple with statues of Isi and Manco-Capac, son of the Inca sun-god, there is a large glass pyramid – pyramids are central to Freemasonry.

Washington D.C, on the other hand, has the following symbols within its design – compass, square, Triple Tau, and the upside down pentagram.

The Washington monument is also made in the shape of ancient Egyptian pyramids.

Are there any significant discernible signs or symbols imbedded in the original plan or layout of the city?

The Nairobi Master Plan shows clearly the incorporation of compass and square in the Nairobi Hill.

It also seems that the shape of the Kenya Centre incorporating all the major civic and central government buildings is in the form of an Ankh.

Here is why: The map with the “Kenya Centre” was part of the headline for the East African Standard, October 2, 1948.

Mayor Alderman F.G.R. Woodley (after whom Woodley estate is named) said:   The assent of Government to its preparation marks a definite step in our development … An expanding township had, in fact, reached the stage where a new purpose and directive was imperative, to fit it for the mature role of a Colonial Capital…. It is indeed the key of the door (emphasis added).

An Ankh to ancient Egyptians was the “sign of life”.

It was the symbol of the key which opened the door between the material and the non-material.

Additionally, a letter written by George Power in November 2001 to new masons in the province of Atrim, Ireland, states, “Masonry gives you a key to a door, opens a path to your feet but you are not forced to open the door or follow the path.”

Seasoned observers suggest they see Masonic significance in the architecture, location or positional relationship of the central buildings in the city, especially those representing the political, economic, educational or religious powers of the city and also say Freemasons lay some of the cornerstones.

Such buildings include the Law Courts, City Hall, Parliament Buildings, Kenyatta International Conference Centre, the Holy Family Basilica, the East African Commission, Kenya Railways headquarters, County Hall, Kenya National Archives, Kenya National Museum, Kipande House, Memorial Hall, McMillan Memorial Library, All Saints’ Cathedral and St. Andrew’s PCEA. 

The Freemasons Hall situated on Nyerere Road (formerly Kirk Road) was built in 1935, according to Nairobi: Jubilee History 1900-1950.

The first Masonic lodge was on Moi Avenue as early as 1901.

The second building is believed to have been constructed where the Central Bank stands today.

The current building was built on a permanent underground river that runs across Nairobi from the Ngong Hills.

Freemasonry watchers also raise queries about various city parks, barazas, those who commissioned and funded them, artwork in public places and buildings as well as the background and possible significance of the statues and monuments of the city and those they have inspired elsewhere in the country. 

Some of the Freemasons – constituting the so-called “South African connection” – who influenced Nairobi and wider Kenya by dint of history are British industrialist Cecil Rhodes and his protégé Sir Herbert Baker; individuals in colonial Kenya influenced by Rhodes include Lord Delamere and Colonel Grogan.

Freemasonry was spread around the world through the British Empire.

It involves every career and every profession.

Despite denials, it is missionary in nature.

According to Masonic Secrets and Rituals Exposed, a book by Peter Ndakwe, Freemasonry played and continues to play a role in the founding and spread of the following:  Theosophical Society, Christian Science, Unitarianism, Jehovah Witnesses (its founders were Freemasons), Mormonism (founder Joseph Smith was a high ranking Freemason), ecumenical/interfaith movements (e.g. the World Council of Churches), Satanism (symbols used are drawn from Freemasonry alongside other occult sources) and the New Age Movement.

There is wide membership all over the world, including the who-is-who in global politics, business, media, popular culture and even faith. 

The most prominent, and confessed Freemasons in Kenya, include ex-Attorney General Charles Njonjo and former Vice President Moody Awori. 

It should be noted that according to Presidential Commission of Inquiry on Devil Worship in Kenya (Daily Nation, August 5, 1999) released to religious organizations (but not to the public) the following towns had Masonic lodges:  Mombasa, Nairobi (Freemasons Hall), Nakuru, Nyeri, Kisumu, Eldoret and Kitale.

This means that five of Kenya’s eight provincial headquarters and two key district headquarters – bread baskets of Kenya to be precise – have a Masonic influence.

Freemasonry works for the destruction of Christianity from within and without,” says a Nairobi-based researcher. 

The lead story in the February edition of the New African magazine suggested that secret societies are “the way forward for Africa.” 

 “Powerful secret societies in the West and elsewhere rule their countries and the world behind the scenes.  They meet annually or thereabouts in secret locations.  They discuss and take decisions on major policies affecting their countries in the world,” wrote Baffour Ankomah, the magazine’s editor.

He continued:  “Their membership cuts across politics, business, media, military, diplomacy, academia, etc.  And they gel things done as planned.  Being part of the same world, doesn’t Africa also need its own secret societies (multiples of them, minus their sinister side) to defend its interests globally and speed up its development?” 

Secret societies he looked into include Skulls and Bones, The Bohemian Grove, The Round Table, The Inquiry, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg and Afrikaner Broderbund. 

“They are all variations of Freemasonry,” notes another Kenyan watcher of secret societies.

And he adds:  “We need to take stock of their role and influence in our past, present and future history.  We especially need to assess their influence in shaping the Kenya we have at the moment.”

*I belong to no secret society myself, and yearn to join none.  Am also greatly indebted to the researchers who have allowed me to quote them so generously in this article.

      IF, AND ONLY IF YOU ARE OF A BELIEF IN THIS UNIVERSAL FRATERNITY THAT SPEARHEADS UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD, FOLLOW UP INFORMATION BELLOW;
      Do you want to know how to become a Freemason? Here is some basic information which should address the question: “How do I become a Mason?”

      Freemasonry has its lodges throughout the free world. You’ll find Masons meeting in almost every town and village and – except where repressive governments make their existence difficult – they’re readily found. None of these lodges was ever organized as a result of any type of ‘missionary’ work: they came into existence because a group of Masons wanted to share the friendship and fraternity with others in the area.
      What is SO often misunderstood is a simple fact: there are few but important requirements to become a Freemason!
      While they are stated in slightly different words in various jurisdictions (and a few jurisdictions may have one or two requirements beyond these), they basically are as follows:
      1. Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended;
      2. A belief in a Supreme Being;
      3. Of lawful age; and
      4. Come to Freemasonry of their “own free will and accord”.
      Freemasonry is an initiatic experience. You can’t become a Mason by reading a book or by hanging out on the internet.

      Let’s examine the requirements for becoming a Mason individually:
      Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended

      Masonry began as a male organization. There are women’s groups and groups of mixed male-female membership who use rituals similar to that of the major body of Freemasons throughout the world. Some of these groups receive acknowledgement (but not ‘recognition’) due to their adherence to high moral principles etc. while others are frowned upon. It is, after all, quite easy for anyone to claim that they are the head of a Masonic group and begin to obtain members. (Check our list of regular/recognized Grand Lodges here and you may wish to browse our section on Fake Masonry here.)

      The requirement of being “freeborn” harkens back to the earliest days of Freemasonry. It became a requirement since only those free from indentured service as an apprentice or bondsman (as many were in 17th century England, for example), could truly make decisions for themselves.

      Being of good repute is another essential requirement. Masons do not wish to encourage membership by those whose actions would stain the reputation of the fraternity. In some jurisdictions this is specifically stated but in all, it is practiced!

      A well-recommended person is one for whom another is willing to vouch. Those who become Freemasons have been recommended by a proposer and then examined by lodge members to ensure that the candidate will benefit from his membership.
      Belief in a Supreme Being

      The major ‘bone of contention’ for some detractors, Masonry does not attempt to define or delineate how a person should pray or to whom worship should be addressed.

      The term “Great Architect of the Universe” (or “Grand Architect of the Universe”) is used to permit offerings of prayer in a non-offensive manner regardless of the varied religious beliefs of those present. All Masons understand this concept and when a prayer is said in lodge (a blessing before a meal, a word of prayer for the sick, for example), they understand that regardless of the person speaking the words or the usual form of prayer of others present, the prayer is addressed to their Supreme Being.

      Once a candidate professes such belief, no further investigation or interrogation is made. This fact stymies Freemasonry’s detractors who seem to be constantly engaged in wars of ‘religious correctness’ and who consequently wind up in contradiction with each other as a result.
      Of Lawful Age

      It’s a simply understood concept: if you are not old enough to make legal commitments, then the concepts and precepts of Freemasonry might be a bit too much for you to comprehend. Although this isn’t always true, there is a conceptual basis for separating ‘adults’ from ‘children’.

      In most US jurisdictions, this age is now 18. There are, however, some jurisdictions where the age might be 19 or 21. Canadian and other jurisdictions vary as well. Check with your local Grand Lodge. A quick summary of US/Canada ages can be found here.

      “Own Free Will and Accord”

      You won’t find recruiting posters or ‘membership bars’ on a medal although one jurisdiction has put ‘advertisements’ on various web locations including search engines like Google. Masons simply don’t get awards for bringing in new members. It’s a voluntary organization, sought out by those with a positive impression of the organization.

      Masonic membership has always been an intensely personal experience and in times when “feelings” weren’t discussed publicly by men, the need for a person to ask for membership was often not communicated to those who might otherwise be interested in the fraternity. Accordingly, there are many who became Masons much later in life than necessary: they had thought the proper thing to do was to wait to be asked to join!

      Some grand jurisdictions, recognizing the problem arising from false perceptions (“I must be asked to join such a good organization.”), have begun to loosen prior strict prohibitions. They may now have a provision for Masons to let those who they may feel would be appropriate candidates know that they are ‘welcomed’ to join. This does not, however, in any way mitigate or diminish the requirement that a man make the choice to join under his ‘own free will and accord’ not actuated by unworthy motives!

      IAM A MASTER MASON HAVING SERVED THE FRATERNITY MOST OF MY LIFETIME.
      THE POSITION OF FREEMASONRY DON’T ALLOW ANY FORM OF RECRUITMENT FROM THE WIILING MEMBERS BUT I UNDERTAKE TO BE OF HELP TO SOME POTENTIAL MEMBERS WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET THIS EMAIL.
      YOU WILL NEVER GET INTO FREEMASONRY UNLESS YOU ARE INTRODUCED BY A MASON.
      TO ENSURE THAT I ONLY DEAL WITH SERIOUS PEOPLE AND ALSO LIMITING THE NUMBER OF PETIONS,I REQUIRE THAT YOU SEND Kshs.1500 THROUGH M-PESA TO 0723279880 AFTER WHICH I WILL CALL YOU TO ARRANGE ON HOW WE CAN SOCIALLY MEET AND GET TO INTRODUCED YOUTO A LODGE OF CONVENIENCE.

        Its true pple, its very difficult to become a mason if you dont know any, you have to know someone to recommend you to the lodge of your choice,you have to beieve in God or supreme being as a general term, brains working ok. then you will be initiated and strat your training from 1st degree to 32 degree where you become a worshipful master.
        There is a registration fee. Its not free as some pple may think, you pay for your membership registration procedure.

      For those of you who have any doubts about what Freemasonry really is,its true nature and the root objective of the so called “Grand Architect”, please read the following;
      To understand Freemasonry one must 1st of all understand the language of symbolism. That being the case let us begin with the 1st symbol of Freemasonry,the compass and the inverted square
      forming a diamond shape with the compass facing upward and the square forming a triangle/diamond like formation so that one points upward while the other points downward. The compass and the square are simple building tools. These tools along with many others are instrumental in the completion of the grand scheme which has been designed by the “Grand Architect” over the ages. The ‘Compass and Square’ symbols forming a diamond/triangle formation is completed with a capital ‘G’ in the middle representing the “Grand Architect” or universal ‘god’ (google freemason symbolism for diagrams of this symbol). The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales. The religion of Freemasonry and some of it’s mysteries have descended from ancient Egypt whose mysteries descended from ancient Babylon. The Free Masons symbol represents the union of opposites. In the bible we read about “the son’s of God and the daughters of men”. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose,gen 6:2. The son’s of God were fallen angels while the daughters of men were earthly women. Thus the joining of that which is from above to that which is on the earth or ‘below’. ‘Heaven and Earth mingle’. The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales and therefore the world. Freemason’s have among their many symbols ‘The Royal Arch’ (google royal arch freemasonry) adorned with astrological symbolism. Washington DC and many other capital city’s worldwide were built according to ‘hermetic’ principals (pertaining to, or characteristic of occult science). In other words the hermetic symbol of Freemasonry symbolizes the hermetic principle of “As above, so below”. Freemason’s look at astrology as it was learned in the early egyptian cultures. The egyptian astrologers focused on the area of the night sky known as the ecliptic. The ecliptic is the apparent path of the sun as seen from the earth divided into 12 major constellations that make up the ecliptic, astrologers follow the celestial bodies as they travel thru it. From the ecliptic is derived ‘The Zodiac’ that we know today. The egyptians believed that the heavens are imbued with the magical and mystical properties of their god’s and goddesses. They also believed that they could channel their energies by reflecting the constellations in their architecture on the ground below. An easy example is the layout of the pyramids at Giza (location of Egypt’s ancient pyramids) which reflect the celestial groupings known as arayans belt. It is an ancient hermetic principle known as…”As Above So Below”. Astrology today has been largely relegated to the ranks of superstition with many people glancing at their Horoscopes for fun but tabloid astrology (found in local newspaper horoscopes) merely focuses on the position of the sun thru the ecliptic. In depth astrology however considers the influences of the solar systems celestial bodies following the positions of the Sun, Saturn and Pluto. As the celestial bodies travel thru the ecliptic the apparent path they trace as seen from the earth, astrologers believe they form influential aspects of each other. This in depth astrology is used in occult circles such as secret societies like ‘the order of the golden dawn’ with its complex occult symbolism. The freemason’s who’s members have included former U.S. presidents like George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt still use astrology in their symbolic art. One need only look at the freemasonic tracing boards who’s ‘Royal Arch’ is adorned with the signs of the ‘Zodiac’. On the freemasonic apron the “all seeing eye” of ‘Horace’ an egyptian symbol can be plainly veiwed. The same ‘All Seeing Eye’ of the egyptian god ‘Horace’ can be viewed on the U.S. one dollar bill above the egyptian pyramid surrounded by the Latin words “Nuvus Ordo Seclurum under the pyramid meaning ‘New World Order’ and “Annuit Coeptis” meaning ‘He approves of our undertakings’. The hexogram 6 pointed star of david (google star of David for image) represents the hermetic symbol of “As Above So Below” which is one and the same with the freemasonic symbol meaning ‘as the principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world are above, so are we below. By simply removing the base in the two triangles which the ‘star of david’ comprises of, (the hexagram) we reveal the masonic symbol ingeniously hidden in plain sight, which is the primary purpose of symbolism,to hide that which is secret in plain sight.
      The White House, the Washington Monument and the Capital Building were designed in a right angle triangle according to the star pattern above with the celestial bodies forming a right angle pattern in the sky where 3 stars surround the constellation ‘Virgo’ forming a stellar triangle. Again the hermetic symbol ‘As Above So Below’ comes into play. The ‘As Above So Below’ correlation in city planning can be seen ‘hidden in plain sight’ in the floor planning of major city’s around the world including Nairobi and South Africa. Thus the Freemason’s (who have 3 stages ‘Entered Apprentice’ ,Fellow Craft’ and “MasterMason”) main objective is to complete the grand scheme of the ‘Grand Architect’, following spiritual wickedness in high places (As Above) and building the scheme on the earth (so below) to the specifications set out by the one who drew the blueprint the ‘Grand Architect’ himself. The question follows therefore “who is the ‘Grand Architect’? To answer this question we simply need to read the assertions of one ‘Manly Palmer Hall’ a 33rd Degree Freemason (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990 was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, published in 1928). In Hall’s book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” he asserts “The Mason realizes,moreover that his vows,taken of his own free will and accord,give him the divine oppurtunity of being a living tool in the hands of the master workman”.
      But who is the master workman?!
      Hall blatantly states in the same book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages, ” When A Man Learns To Master His Craft, the Seething Energies of Lucifer Are in His Hands”.
      Therefore the ‘Grand Architect’ whom the freemasons serve is Lucifer,also known as The Devil also known as Satan!!!!
      The ‘Entered Apprentice’ maybe termed as a materialistic degree. The ‘Fellow Craft’ is religious and mystical.
      The Master Mason (33rd degree) is occult or philosophical.
      Mason’s teach that ‘your virtue and purity of life make you worthy of heaven’ meanwhile concealing among top ranking 33rd degree master masons the actual Satanic grand scheme being played out before our eyes. World leaders and international bankers as well as powerfull individuals of ALL proffessional fields of business are involved in this grand scheme. Sworn to secrecy by penalty of death they are intent on bringing about the New World Order, One World Currency and One World Government which will be lead by the Antichrist as fortold in the Holy Bible. Individuals who are freemasons have (whether they know it or not) pledged themselves to complete the ‘blueprint’ that has been drawn up by the ‘Grand Architect’,Lucifer and as faithfull builders to complete the design that is outlined in the ‘blueprint’. The ‘blueprint’ is a well thought out plan by Lucifer who is the Devil or Satan.
      This is the spirit of Anti Christ!
      And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!
      4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
      5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
      6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
      1John 4;3-6
      Mason’s have indeed authored and devised the following imitations of the true Church of Christ;
      Theosophical Society, Christian Science, Unitarianism, Jehovah Witnesses (its founders were Freemasons), Mormonism (founder Joseph Smith was a high ranking Freemason), ecumenical/interfaith movements (e.g. the World Council of Churches), Satanism (symbols used are drawn from Freemasonry alongside other occult sources) and the New Age Movement.
      This is why they claim to accept men of all faiths but in actuality Freemasonry’s objective is the total destruction of the Christian Church from within and without. Jesus has defeated Satan and his (Satan’s) grand scheme will fail to the glory of God the Father!! Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit of truth is saying! Jesus is Lord! Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!! The End is near, the stage is set. Take your side for the the war rages and the true Children of God follow Christ!!
      Even so come quickly Lord Jesus!! Come quickly!!

        Thanks for your detailed story. Pple need to open up their eyes, like once diabolic sang”open ur eyes the truth is ur eyes” show the deceptions of masonic ways! Let all who are masonic remember their future in hell with their grand artitect. Jesus is Lord and the spirit that doesnt confess that is a spirit of the antichrist.

      For those of you who have any doubts about what Freemasonry really is,its true nature and the root objective of the so called “Grand Architect”, please read the following;
      To understand Freemasonry one must 1st of all understand the language of symbolism. That being the case let us begin with the 1st symbol of Freemasonry,the compass and the inverted square
      forming a diamond shape with the compass facing upward and the square forming a triangle/diamond like formation so that one points upward while the other points downward. The compass and the square are simple building tools. These tools along with many others are instrumental in the completion of the grand scheme which has been designed by the “Grand Architect” over the ages. The ‘Compass and Square’ symbols forming a diamond/triangle formation is completed with a capital ‘G’ in the middle representing the “Grand Architect” or universal ‘god’ (google freemason symbolism for diagrams of this symbol). The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales. The religion of Freemasonry and some of it’s mysteries have descended from ancient Egypt whose mysteries descended from ancient Babylon. The Free Masons symbol represents the union of opposites. In the bible we read about “the son’s of God and the daughters of men”. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose,gen 6:2. The son’s of God were fallen angels while the daughters of men were earthly women. Thus the joining of that which is from above to that which is on the earth or ‘below’. ‘Heaven and Earth mingle’. The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales and therefore the world. Freemason’s have among their many symbols ‘The Royal Arch’ (google royal arch freemasonry) adorned with astrological symbolism. Washington DC and many other capital city’s worldwide were built according to ‘hermetic’ principals (pertaining to, or characteristic of occult science). In other words the hermetic symbol of Freemasonry symbolizes the hermetic principle of “As above, so below”. Freemason’s look at astrology as it was learned in the early egyptian cultures. The egyptian astrologers focused on the area of the night sky known as the ecliptic. The ecliptic is the apparent path of the sun as seen from the earth divided into 12 major constellations that make up the ecliptic, astrologers follow the celestial bodies as they travel thru it. From the ecliptic is derived ‘The Zodiac’ that we know today. The egyptians believed that the heavens are imbued with the magical and mystical properties of their god’s and goddesses. They also believed that they could channel their energies by reflecting the constellations in their architecture on the ground below. An easy example is the layout of the pyramids at Giza (location of Egypt’s ancient pyramids) which reflect the celestial groupings known as arayans belt. It is an ancient hermetic principle known as…”As Above So Below”. Astrology today has been largely relegated to the ranks of superstition with many people glancing at their Horoscopes for fun but tabloid astrology (found in local newspaper horoscopes) merely focuses on the position of the sun thru the ecliptic. In depth astrology however considers the influences of the solar systems celestial bodies following the positions of the Sun, Saturn and Pluto. As the celestial bodies travel thru the ecliptic the apparent path they trace as seen from the earth, astrologers believe they form influential aspects of each other. This in depth astrology is used in occult circles such as secret societies like ‘the order of the golden dawn’ with its complex occult symbolism. The freemason’s who’s members have included former U.S. presidents like George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt still use astrology in their symbolic art. One need only look at the freemasonic tracing boards who’s ‘Royal Arch’ is adorned with the signs of the ‘Zodiac’. On the freemasonic apron the “all seeing eye” of ‘Horace’ an egyptian symbol can be plainly veiwed. The same ‘All Seeing Eye’ of the egyptian god ‘Horace’ can be viewed on the U.S. one dollar bill above the egyptian pyramid surrounded by the Latin words “Nuvus Ordo Seclurum under the pyramid meaning ‘New World Order’ and “Annuit Coeptis” meaning ‘He approves of our undertakings’. The hexogram 6 pointed star of david (google star of David for image) represents the hermetic symbol of “As Above So Below” which is one and the same with the freemasonic symbol meaning ‘as the principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world are above, so are we below. By simply removing the base in the two triangles which the ‘star of david’ comprises of, (the hexagram) we reveal the masonic symbol ingeniously hidden in plain sight, which is the primary purpose of symbolism,to hide that which is secret in plain sight.
      The White House, the Washington Monument and the Capital Building were designed in a right angle triangle according to the star pattern above with the celestial bodies forming a right angle pattern in the sky where 3 stars surround the constellation ‘Virgo’ forming a stellar triangle. Again the hermetic symbol ‘As Above So Below’ comes into play. The ‘As Above So Below’ correlation in city planning can be seen ‘hidden in plain sight’ in the floor planning of major city’s around the world including Nairobi and South Africa. Thus the Freemason’s (who have 3 stages ‘Entered Apprentice’ ,Fellow Craft’ and “MasterMason”) main objective is to complete the grand scheme of the ‘Grand Architect’, following spiritual wickedness in high places (As Above) and building the scheme on the earth (so below) to the specifications set out by the one who drew the blueprint the ‘Grand Architect’ himself. The question follows therefore “who is the ‘Grand Architect’? To answer this question we simply need to read the assertions of one ‘Manly Palmer Hall’ a 33rd Degree Freemason (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990 was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, published in 1928). In Hall’s book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” he asserts “The Mason realizes,moreover that his vows,taken of his own free will and accord,give him the divine oppurtunity of being a living tool in the hands of the master workman”.
      But who is the master workman?!
      Hall blatantly states in the same book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages, ” When A Man Learns To Master His Craft, the Seething Energies of Lucifer Are in His Hands”.
      Therefore the ‘Grand Architect’ whom the freemasons serve is Lucifer,also known as The Devil also known as Satan!!!!
      The ‘Entered Apprentice’ maybe termed as a materialistic degree. The ‘Fellow Craft’ is religious and mystical.
      The Master Mason (33rd degree) is occult or philosophical.
      Mason’s teach that ‘your virtue and purity of life make you worthy of heaven’ meanwhile concealing among top ranking 33rd degree master masons the actual Satanic grand scheme being played out before our eyes. World leaders and international bankers as well as powerfull individuals of ALL proffessional fields of business are involved in this grand scheme. Sworn to secrecy by penalty of death they are intent on bringing about the New World Order, One World Currency and One World Government which will be lead by the Antichrist as fortold in the Holy Bible. Individuals who are freemasons have (whether they know it or not) pledged themselves to complete the ‘blueprint’ that has been drawn up by the ‘Grand Architect’,Lucifer and as faithfull builders to complete the design that is outlined in the ‘blueprint’. The ‘blueprint’ is a well thought out plan by Lucifer who is the Devil or Satan.
      This is the spirit of Anti Christ!
      And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!
      4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
      5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
      6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
      1John 4;3-6
      Mason’s have indeed authored and devised the following imitations of the true Church of Christ;
      Theosophical Society, Christian Science, Unitarianism, Jehovah Witnesses (its founders were Freemasons), Mormonism (founder Joseph Smith was a high ranking Freemason), ecumenical/interfaith movements (e.g. the World Council of Churches), Satanism (symbols used are drawn from Freemasonry alongside other occult sources) and the New Age Movement.
      This is why they claim to accept men of all faiths but in actuality Freemasonry’s objective is the total destruction of the Christian Church from within and without. Jesus has defeated Satan and his (Satan’s) grand scheme will fail to the glory of God the Father!! Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit of truth is saying! Jesus is Lord! Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!! The End is near, the stage is set. Take your side for the the war rages and the true Children of God follow Christ!!
      Even so come quickly Lord Jesus!! Come quickly!!

    This is a great article. There is more to those who wish to find out more. It is important to take note that true christianity stands lonesome,be-littled and even cold; Egyptian religions long came to kenya and the whole world rather. Truly, few true christians we are. Except you be born again, you are no christian. So check it for yourself. even if you are powerful and most influential in your sphere or part of the world, when the final bell tolls for you, you are eternally lost to hell. catholics are no better; they themselves, created islam to quech true christianity in the middle east; and anglicans came straight out of catholicism, started by a disgruntled king who needed to defy papal powers in order to marry a second wife! (that’s why the head of the throne in england is also the head of Anglicanism constantly). Gentlemen, what you need is true fiery christianity, not a mix, not freemasonry, not any other. fear the LORD. he is true, and know, He is true. There is none like Him, nor will there be another. He is not going to wipe out satanists or free masons for you before you can see He is the only one true God, rather, He has released the life-giving information in his word, outlined in the the christian bible. Don’t get trapped; come out to Jesus, while there may be time. some old stones remain; you cannot replan city park; nor replan the CBD to suit Christian outlines; just like the bible says, wherever a tree falls, there it will lay. like fallen trees, these are they. so worry not. you will pass through them with Jesus christ. Be born again of Jesus, not any other has truth or life. thanks.

      Hi Paul,

      AMEN to your article; well put. Jesus is the only true way to a life of eternal bliss. WIthout being judgemental, I think the main problem with some of us is that we worship earthly belongings not knowing everythng we have in this world is not ours and one day we shall leave it all behind. All those stating here that they would like to be masons must search within themselves and ask why they think they want to join something they do not know yet Jesus is offering them a life of eternity without any frails/conditions, all He asks is for you to do two things: 1. Love your Neighbour as yourself and secondly love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your might, with all your soul and with all your sthrenth!!!!

        Brother and sisters, Being a true christian is no longer an issue that is based on the church or religion. We live with people of all faiths and as true christians we have to accept them and live with them as brothers and sisters. They may be even in our families, you will, as a true christian, not expel them if you believe in the unfathomable power of God Almighty through Jesus Christ of Nazareth. You may ask- What will we do?
        1. Have the bible and keep Gods commandments (the ten and love that Jesus Christ of Nazareth taught)
        2. Top most learn or begin to forgive and do this constantly, all you enemies known and unknown and ask God Almighty in the name of Jeusu Christ of Nazareth to help them know the truth so it may set them free from bondage
        3. Ask God Almighty to forgive you all your sins, that yopu may have commited against Him & Mankind, Knowingly & unknowingly.
        4 Stop being suspicious of people, even those you know who do not subscribe to a faith similar to yours, since it is through-(go to next point)
        5. Love that you will conquer all forms of evil. Non judgemental Love. Avenge is for God Almighty and that is why as a true christian one only needs to forgive.
        NB: You should realize that all is not lost. One true Christian(One Godly Man/ Woman) can easily alter the course of the world and the entire Universe, for it is the sole creator of thet person who created the universe.
        So how do you become that One and eventually a multitude of people that worship the True God Almighty in truth and holliness?
        By keeping God Alighty’s commandments and I could simplify this
        1. Forgive at all times
        2. Show Love/ care for all (mental disposition & material where possible)
        3. Ask for forgiveness at all time for we constantly err even in our thoughts
        4. Wiping from your thoughts all forms of evil thoughts or even merely unkind ones
        5. Ask God Almighty to remember all those that have left his ways and are pursuing evil ways and help them know the truth so it will set them free from bondage.
        NB: It is only when you adopt such a lifestyle and make a decision to follow that throu and throu that you will realise what the bible says:
        That happy are those that know God for they are shown all the trappings of the devil and the snares laid ahead of them. God reveals himself to us in a very easy manner, BUT only if you choose and decide to be on His side.

    Good piece, but a few half and sugestive truths in there. Am a Kenyan born resident in UK, and i’m also a Freemason. I can tell you that Freemasonry is NOT devil worshiping NOR a religion or substitue for it. It is also not a secret society, but a society with secrets. Big diffrence. Am sorry to dissapoint many of you who think you will “get money” by joining it, because you won’t. To a Freemason, abuse of Freemasonry for personal gain of any sort equals instant expulsion from it.

    Freemasonry is all about living your life on a higher moral plane than the average, and proving all this with your daily actions, like being caring and charitable to ALL etc. It will suprise many reading this that since becoming a Freemason, i’ve also become a regular church goer too! I don’t go there to corrupt the church nor recruit people into Freemasonry, (which you can’t do anyway). I do it for my own self improvement so i can be a better human being through my own personal faith. I grew up in Kenya, a country unlike many in the world with its true rich diversity of races, faiths and cultures. Many Kenyans will never actually appreciate this untill they travel beyond its borders. I happen to be quite worldy now because of this upbringing. Everyday, i try even harder to see things from my brothers eyes, whatever thier own faith may be. I find this easier than most because it is how things are in Kenya. Although not always

    Since living in the UK, i found that the problem with my Kenyan Christian upbringing was that anything that did not fall in with it 100%, was branded devil worshiping. When we taint everything we dont understand with one brush, we become intolerant among other things. I don’t have to say that intolerance is the cause of all war and strife. The world is running out of space, and as we move closer to each other, we will soon have to get along more to avoid our own demise. You dont have to agree or comply with some issues in order to accept its right to exists. Picture yourself as a judge in a court of law where a gay man is stood before you wrongfully persecuted in his job because of his sexual orientation. You do not have to be gay yourself to rule in favour of this mans legal rights as a human being. Yet this is what many of us who claim to be “openminded” do everyday. They draw lines when it comes to certain issues. Many of us Kenyans in the UK do not see the connection between successful intergration abroad and our fixed attitudes to some issues. Many end up living up to certain stereotypes because of this. For example in Kenya, the words Homosexual and Paedophile mean the same thing to most people. One is legal in most countries including UK, the other is uncondornable everywhere. But thats another story! Anyway, here is a good point of reference to start if you want to know what Freemasonry is all about

    Becoming a Freemason or joining a Lodge does not necessarily get one rich (financially). It might also suprise some to know that in many Lodges (at least in London) there are people (brothers) from all Social Classes & backgrounds….. and that is not an issue.
    But if one has the sort of attitude of “..want to get rich” or “Devil worshipping…..” then they may not fit in.

    While looking for a Masonic Lodge in Kisumu, I came across your article. While the article was interesting in some areas of the history of Freemasonry in Kenya, it certainly was written in a NEGATIVE tone with much information that was wrong about our fraternity which is the LARGEST men’s Fraternal Organization in the world. Where ever I have traveled in the world since age 21 in 1964, I have visited Masonic Lodges in the UK, Italy, Greece, Malta, Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines. I have sat in Lodges with men of all Creeds and color. I am a Born Again Christian of some 25 years plus and find no contradiction. Even the GREAT PASTOR, Norman Vincent Peale of New York City, who wrote “The Power of Posttive Thinking” was the Grand Lodge Chaplain in New York State. IGNORANCE among people is the GREATEST THREAT to a FREE DEMOCRACY. That is WHY people like Hitler came to power. After going after the Jewish people, he next came after the Masonic Lodge memberships as DICTATORS do. WE Masons will NOT allow DESPOTS, DICTATORS etc. to come to POWER, if it is within OUR POWER to do so. AMERICA was founded upon Masonic Principles, as most all our LEADERS where also MASONS. You only have to look at George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere. Most of the SIGNERS of The Declaration of INDEPENDENCE were Masons. Leaders in their states. So, this GARAGE about you indicating about devil worship is JUST THAT – GARBAGE!! Now there are some Lodges around the world that we DO NOT recognize as they do NOT meet the true requirements of Freemasonry. I think that people like JK and Lee, who are Masons, did a very good job of what they wrote. Chuck in Texas, USA

    Hello all,
    This is a great debate and I felt I had to add my voice to it.
    I am a Kenyan and a freemason living in Europe. Freemasonary by its nature is years and ages ahead of today’s thinking/conciousness and that is the reason why the ignorant refer to it as devil worship.

    We need to work from the following known facts:
    1. There is only ONE GOD and HE is everything and everything is HIM
    2. Only GOD created the world
    3. Everything that GOD created was good because GOOD can never create bad/evil

    If the above be true, it follows that there can be no power to make or influence anything but GOD. Acknowledging and accepting the existance of such a power is what I personally refer to as devil worship or having other gods.

    Therefore those who call others devil worshipers are through their ignorance the devil worshipers themselves because they acknowledge the existance of another power than the ONE all encomposing power.

    If you misapply a law, you will get negative results but that does not make the general law bad. The devil is man’s creation to justify his/her failings and calling a great fraternaly as freemasonary devil worshiping is utter ignorance
    .
    The following website has some great articles regarding freemasonary for those open minded readers.
    http://www.freemasons-freemasonry.com

    If you would like to join the fraternitity for no other reason but because you have a positive opinion of the organization and would like to better yourself, I strongly urge you to seek out a mason and ask hin to assist you.

    One love.

    Thomas (not my real name)

      My question is for this one that goes by the name, Thomas that commented on february 11 2009.
      If you are sooooo proud of your so called ” Holy Religion”, movement or whatever, you think of it,
      why cant you use your real name even to address the article or the readers?
      why cant you give your contacts or some practical evidence that this thing of yours is real?

      what’s the matter? Ashamed that revealing yourself will make the REAL,UGLY TRUTH about your STUPID CULT/DEVIL ACTIVITIES come to the open?

      Answer that if you are indeed a HUMAN and NOT a demon in disgiuse!!

    interesting. It all boils down to the fact that the greatest investment is in your spiritual life. All is vanity and grasping for the wind – this applies to earthly possessions and material things all but for your soul, spirituality and knowledgeability. I am not a freemason but I believe in one supreme being GOD and the common good of men. Freemasonry is a key to the door of a morally upright life, ultimate happiness and knowledgeability…so I believe….

    Yes Menilio. You are not far off the truth. Freemasonry is for those who can see BEYOND material wealth being the measure of your success. Personally, i’ve been asked by fellow Kenyans why it is that the image of Freemasons in Kenya is that of very wealthy men?

    The explanation is long winded. But it’s based on the fact that Freemasonry “takes good men and makes them better”. All it means is that it attracts a type of foward thinking man, who given the right atmosphere and environment will usually gain the kind of inner learning, confidence and advise necessary to further themselves even more. This can also lead to them to furthering themselves in their own professions, without the direct aid of any other Freemason.

    Its also not a case of Freemasons only giving other Freemasons their business. First of all take into consideration the varied amount of professions of the men you would meet in a Lodge, who’s jobs may have no links whatsoever. Secondly, if a Freemason is for example a wealthy trader by profession, he will usually have got to where he is through astute and clever business practises. I don’t need to say that giving undue favour or nepotism to someone while doing business, is eventually NOT good for the progress of any business.

    So why are some of these guys “rich” then? Its also a state of mind. Successful professionals among other things will have had to show above all else, in my book, the ability to be tolerant and flexible on the way to getting where they are. Be it to different ideas, change, people and cultures, spirituality you name it.

    It doesn’t matter what brains you may have. THESE are the true things you must posses if you want to become successful in life. (Some of these even apply in marriage too!)

    People like these will usually see and think outside of the box much better than most people. Its eventually why they usually rise towards the top in whatever field of work they are in.

    Please excuse my rough analogies by the way. But i hope you see where i was headed.

    And then all these guys are also human after all. So you can’t blame like minded people who understand “these ways”, for eventually choosing to hang out together. Like minds etc.

    I hasten to add that the fact that one tolerates something, does NOT mean you have to accept it. One of Freemasonry’s’ top rules, is that the discussion of religion and politics is strictly prohibited within the lodge! And yet this same lodge will have people of different faiths and political leanings. Freemasonry acknowledges that these are the two most divisive topics on earth. And yet, when when two different Freemasons of different political or religious backgrounds meet, they have to set all this aside and truly pull as one towards accomplishing all their lodges obligations. Inside and outside of it.

    I’ll repeat again what i said in a much earlier post. That some form of intolerance is always at the cause of all war and strife in the world today. Unfortunately these are usually religion and politics.

    Personally, i pride myself that the almighty God gave me this rare gift to see men for what they are as individuals, and never to judge. And its why am a proud Freemason too. Because when i go to my lodge, i go to meet with other people who are like me. Truly openminded.

    As i mentioned earlier, many of us christian Kenyans are taught quite early in life to label all we don’t know much about as devil worship.

    So until the day some of us can look at a man from a land far off, with a different colour face to yours, worships differently to you, and you can still honestly tolerate his ways without judgement, and let him be…. Then you will know what it is to be a Freemason.

    All in the spirit of brotherly LOVE, RELIEF (charity), and TRUTH. The three pillars of Freemasons worldwide.

    May God bless you all.

      Let me challenge you!!!

      If you claim that your so called” Holy Religion” is pure and fair,

      why cant you all just come out like all other religions do and proclaim yourselves all over to the whole world?

      why dont you all just show yourselves to ythe public and let the media interrogate you the way it does ALL the religions of this earth?

      walk around and declare publicly that you are a freemason,why dont you and your fellow members do that?

      how come the churches and religions of the world NEVER incorporate your kind or ever mention your kind to be a part of the religions of life?

      ONLY THOSE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES OR HIDING SOMETHING STAY IN THE DARK!!

      You talk like you and your kind are some “WALKING SAINTS” living in a ” special world”,which is ALL CRAP!!

      DONT LIE TO THE WORLD!! You are ALL instruments of the DEVIL and WLKING DEMONS, pretending to come in peace and love,but TRUTH BE KNOWN, no thanks to you all, the world is a LIVING HELL!!!

        IF, AND ONLY IF YOU ARE OF A BELIEF IN THIS UNIVERSAL FRATERNITY THAT SPEARHEADS UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD, FOLLOW UP INFORMATION BELLOW;
        Do you want to know how to become a Freemason? Here is some basic information which should address the question: “How do I become a Mason?”

        Freemasonry has its lodges throughout the free world. You’ll find Masons meeting in almost every town and village and – except where repressive governments make their existence difficult – they’re readily found. None of these lodges was ever organized as a result of any type of ‘missionary’ work: they came into existence because a group of Masons wanted to share the friendship and fraternity with others in the area.
        What is SO often misunderstood is a simple fact: there are few but important requirements to become a Freemason!
        While they are stated in slightly different words in various jurisdictions (and a few jurisdictions may have one or two requirements beyond these), they basically are as follows:
        1. Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended;
        2. A belief in a Supreme Being;
        3. Of lawful age; and
        4. Come to Freemasonry of their “own free will and accord”.
        Freemasonry is an initiatic experience. You can’t become a Mason by reading a book or by hanging out on the internet.

        Let’s examine the requirements for becoming a Mason individually:
        Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended

        Masonry began as a male organization. There are women’s groups and groups of mixed male-female membership who use rituals similar to that of the major body of Freemasons throughout the world. Some of these groups receive acknowledgement (but not ‘recognition’) due to their adherence to high moral principles etc. while others are frowned upon. It is, after all, quite easy for anyone to claim that they are the head of a Masonic group and begin to obtain members. (Check our list of regular/recognized Grand Lodges here and you may wish to browse our section on Fake Masonry here.)

        The requirement of being “freeborn” harkens back to the earliest days of Freemasonry. It became a requirement since only those free from indentured service as an apprentice or bondsman (as many were in 17th century England, for example), could truly make decisions for themselves.

        Being of good repute is another essential requirement. Masons do not wish to encourage membership by those whose actions would stain the reputation of the fraternity. In some jurisdictions this is specifically stated but in all, it is practiced!

        A well-recommended person is one for whom another is willing to vouch. Those who become Freemasons have been recommended by a proposer and then examined by lodge members to ensure that the candidate will benefit from his membership.
        Belief in a Supreme Being

        The major ‘bone of contention’ for some detractors, Masonry does not attempt to define or delineate how a person should pray or to whom worship should be addressed.

        The term “Great Architect of the Universe” (or “Grand Architect of the Universe”) is used to permit offerings of prayer in a non-offensive manner regardless of the varied religious beliefs of those present. All Masons understand this concept and when a prayer is said in lodge (a blessing before a meal, a word of prayer for the sick, for example), they understand that regardless of the person speaking the words or the usual form of prayer of others present, the prayer is addressed to their Supreme Being.

        Once a candidate professes such belief, no further investigation or interrogation is made. This fact stymies Freemasonry’s detractors who seem to be constantly engaged in wars of ‘religious correctness’ and who consequently wind up in contradiction with each other as a result.
        Of Lawful Age

        It’s a simply understood concept: if you are not old enough to make legal commitments, then the concepts and precepts of Freemasonry might be a bit too much for you to comprehend. Although this isn’t always true, there is a conceptual basis for separating ‘adults’ from ‘children’.

        In most US jurisdictions, this age is now 18. There are, however, some jurisdictions where the age might be 19 or 21. Canadian and other jurisdictions vary as well. Check with your local Grand Lodge. A quick summary of US/Canada ages can be found here.

        “Own Free Will and Accord”

        You won’t find recruiting posters or ‘membership bars’ on a medal although one jurisdiction has put ‘advertisements’ on various web locations including search engines like Google. Masons simply don’t get awards for bringing in new members. It’s a voluntary organization, sought out by those with a positive impression of the organization.

        Masonic membership has always been an intensely personal experience and in times when “feelings” weren’t discussed publicly by men, the need for a person to ask for membership was often not communicated to those who might otherwise be interested in the fraternity. Accordingly, there are many who became Masons much later in life than necessary: they had thought the proper thing to do was to wait to be asked to join!

        Some grand jurisdictions, recognizing the problem arising from false perceptions (“I must be asked to join such a good organization.”), have begun to loosen prior strict prohibitions. They may now have a provision for Masons to let those who they may feel would be appropriate candidates know that they are ‘welcomed’ to join. This does not, however, in any way mitigate or diminish the requirement that a man make the choice to join under his ‘own free will and accord’ not actuated by unworthy motives!

        IAM A MASTER MASON HAVING SERVED THE FRATERNITY MOST OF MY LIFETIME IN THE USA AND NOW IN KENYA.
        THE POSITION OF FREEMASONRY DON’T ALLOW ANY FORM OF RECRUITMENT FROM THE WIILING MEMBERS BUT I UNDERTAKE TO BE OF HELP TO SOME POTENTIAL MEMBERS WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET THIS EMAIL.
        YOU WILL NEVER GET INTO FREEMASONRY UNLESS YOU ARE INTRODUCED BY A MASON.
        TO ENSURE THAT I ONLY DEAL WITH SERIOUS PEOPLE AND ALSO LIMITING THE NUMBER OF PETIONS,I REQUIRE THAT YOU SEND Kshs.1500 THROUGH M-PESA TO 0723279880 AFTER WHICH I WILL CALL YOU TO ARRANGE ON HOW WE CAN SOCIALLY MEET AND GET TO INTRODUCED YOU TO A LODGE OF CONVENIENCE.

    Unfortunately its easy to spot many on here who have ulterior motives for wanting to become Freemasons. But as Mike has clearly said, The mountain cannot come to Mohamed! etc…

    Few have even articulated WHY they feel its for them or reasons they want to join. They just simply want to be hooked up. A euphemism for fast tracking. Whereas it doesn’t work like that in Freemasonry, as its a solemn and lifelong undertaking. And maybe we can all see why Freemasonry is not for everybody.

    I am Kenyan by birth (Kamba) but a citizen of United States but above all, I am a citizen of Earth. I am also, a mason. Freemason is actually not what people tend to say it is. Fear of the unknown always brings about demonization of that which is unknown. For example, we can look at people and how they have to lower other people standards in order to be able to attack them, for no one in war will tell you, let’s go attack our fellow man, this will not work. It will always be, they are demons, they are cowards, cockroaches, they steal from the rich and if we can research how history paints it, we can look at slavery and the derogatory names that had to given to human-beings in order to justify the illegal act of placing shackles on them.

    It is no different when it comes to religions or societies that are not understood. In actuality Freemasonry is not at all secret! It is right in your eye, I have heard people say Freemasons are devil worshipers, Satanists but never heard say they are also human beings!

    Why are humans so afraid of that which they do not know? The secret in Masonry is making you just think in a different way about the world that you live in. To honor God and obey his commandments, to respect your fellow-man and be true to him as you would to yourself, be loyal to your family, yourself and country.

    Who in here has studied all religions to realize in the end, there is no religion but one religion? For regardless of the name, they speak of loving one another as you would love yourself, sacrificing for higher spiritual virtues, giving to those in need, forgiving others and realizing what you do to others is done unto you by the immutable laws of the universe.

    There is only but ONE GOD, may he be known as the Supreme Being or the sublime beauty who there is no words that can describe. There is only but ONE MAN- or what we all know as Adam (Kadmon) and in this case may he be known by a Chinese, African, Spanish or European name. We are all the same and we collectively make up this being called MAN. For if aliens from outer of space was to attack man, I am sure they would not be saying well, we are going to attack the Egyptians and leave Japanese alone or we are going to attack Edward and leave Musa alone…so even from that sense, we can understand that we are all one. God is one as well. The universe is one. One life, one consciousness etc, why else would Jesus tell you to forgive one another and love your neighbor as much as you would love yourself? For in loving them you are truly loving yourself. In giving you receive.

    Masonry teaches you a lot of things, the initiations are symbolic just as the entire universe is built on symbols to include-Man but Masonry cannot and will not teach you to not think outside the box and this is usually the individual, doing his research, putting 1 and 2 together. Looking at the planets, the galaxy, the sun and how it sheds light throughout the solar system, looking at his heart and how it sheds light throughout his/her solar (body) system and from searching through Mathematics, philosophy, art, music for if God is in all things, all things must be in God and it would be wise to see that understanding one thing, is understanding a piece of God and is that not what we are here to do?

    I write to my fellow man and hope you will search more. If you ask, it will be given, if you knock, the door will be opened.

      For those of you who have any doubts about what Freemasonry really is,its true nature and the root objective of the so called “Grand Architect”, please read the following;
      To understand Freemasonry one must 1st of all understand the language of symbolism. That being the case let us begin with the 1st symbol of Freemasonry,the compass and the inverted square
      forming a diamond shape with the compass facing upward and the square forming a triangle/diamond like formation so that one points upward while the other points downward. The compass and the square are simple building tools. These tools along with many others are instrumental in the completion of the grand scheme which has been designed by the “Grand Architect” over the ages. The ‘Compass and Square’ symbols forming a diamond/triangle formation is completed with a capital ‘G’ in the middle representing the “Grand Architect” or universal ‘god’ (google freemason symbolism for diagrams of this symbol). The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales. The religion of Freemasonry and some of it’s mysteries have descended from ancient Egypt whose mysteries descended from ancient Babylon. The Free Masons symbol represents the union of opposites. In the bible we read about “the son’s of God and the daughters of men”. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose,gen 6:2. The son’s of God were fallen angels while the daughters of men were earthly women. Thus the joining of that which is from above to that which is on the earth or ‘below’. ‘Heaven and Earth mingle’. The Duke of Kent, (Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul; born 9 October 1935) is the President of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and the Grand Master of the Freemasons in England & Wales and therefore the world. Freemason’s have among their many symbols ‘The Royal Arch’ (google royal arch freemasonry) adorned with astrological symbolism. Washington DC and many other capital city’s worldwide were built according to ‘hermetic’ principals (pertaining to, or characteristic of occult science). In other words the hermetic symbol of Freemasonry symbolizes the hermetic principle of “As above, so below”. Freemason’s look at astrology as it was learned in the early egyptian cultures. The egyptian astrologers focused on the area of the night sky known as the ecliptic. The ecliptic is the apparent path of the sun as seen from the earth divided into 12 major constellations that make up the ecliptic, astrologers follow the celestial bodies as they travel thru it. From the ecliptic is derived ‘The Zodiac’ that we know today. The egyptians believed that the heavens are imbued with the magical and mystical properties of their god’s and goddesses. They also believed that they could channel their energies by reflecting the constellations in their architecture on the ground below. An easy example is the layout of the pyramids at Giza (location of Egypt’s ancient pyramids) which reflect the celestial groupings known as arayans belt. It is an ancient hermetic principle known as…”As Above So Below”. Astrology today has been largely relegated to the ranks of superstition with many people glancing at their Horoscopes for fun but tabloid astrology (found in local newspaper horoscopes) merely focuses on the position of the sun thru the ecliptic. In depth astrology however considers the influences of the solar systems celestial bodies following the positions of the Sun, Saturn and Pluto. As the celestial bodies travel thru the ecliptic the apparent path they trace as seen from the earth, astrologers believe they form influential aspects of each other. This in depth astrology is used in occult circles such as secret societies like ‘the order of the golden dawn’ with its complex occult symbolism. The freemason’s who’s members have included former U.S. presidents like George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt still use astrology in their symbolic art. One need only look at the freemasonic tracing boards who’s ‘Royal Arch’ is adorned with the signs of the ‘Zodiac’. On the freemasonic apron the “all seeing eye” of ‘Horace’ an egyptian symbol can be plainly veiwed. The same ‘All Seeing Eye’ of the egyptian god ‘Horace’ can be viewed on the U.S. one dollar bill above the egyptian pyramid surrounded by the Latin words “Nuvus Ordo Seclurum under the pyramid meaning ‘New World Order’ and “Annuit Coeptis” meaning ‘He approves of our undertakings’. The hexogram 6 pointed star of david (google star of David for image) represents the hermetic symbol of “As Above So Below” which is one and the same with the freemasonic symbol meaning ‘as the principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world are above, so are we below. By simply removing the base in the two triangles which the ‘star of david’ comprises of, (the hexagram) we reveal the masonic symbol ingeniously hidden in plain sight, which is the primary purpose of symbolism,to hide that which is secret in plain sight.
      The White House, the Washington Monument and the Capital Building were designed in a right angle triangle according to the star pattern above with the celestial bodies forming a right angle pattern in the sky where 3 stars surround the constellation ‘Virgo’ forming a stellar triangle. Again the hermetic symbol ‘As Above So Below’ comes into play. The ‘As Above So Below’ correlation in city planning can be seen ‘hidden in plain sight’ in the floor planning of major city’s around the world including Nairobi and South Africa. Thus the Freemason’s (who have 3 stages ‘Entered Apprentice’ ,Fellow Craft’ and “MasterMason”) main objective is to complete the grand scheme of the ‘Grand Architect’, following spiritual wickedness in high places (As Above) and building the scheme on the earth (so below) to the specifications set out by the one who drew the blueprint the ‘Grand Architect’ himself. The question follows therefore “who is the ‘Grand Architect’? To answer this question we simply need to read the assertions of one ‘Manly Palmer Hall’ a 33rd Degree Freemason (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990 was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, published in 1928). In Hall’s book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” he asserts “The Mason realizes,moreover that his vows,taken of his own free will and accord,give him the divine oppurtunity of being a living tool in the hands of the master workman”.
      But who is the master workman?!
      Hall blatantly states in the same book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages, ” When A Man Learns To Master His Craft, the Seething Energies of Lucifer Are in His Hands”.
      Therefore the ‘Grand Architect’ whom the freemasons serve is Lucifer,also known as The Devil also known as Satan!!!!
      The ‘Entered Apprentice’ maybe termed as a materialistic degree. The ‘Fellow Craft’ is religious and mystical.
      The Master Mason (33rd degree) is occult or philosophical.
      Mason’s teach that ‘your virtue and purity of life make you worthy of heaven’ meanwhile concealing among top ranking 33rd degree master masons the actual Satanic grand scheme being played out before our eyes. World leaders and international bankers as well as powerfull individuals of ALL proffessional fields of business are involved in this grand scheme. Sworn to secrecy by penalty of death they are intent on bringing about the New World Order, One World Currency and One World Government which will be lead by the Antichrist as fortold in the Holy Bible. Individuals who are freemasons have (whether they know it or not) pledged themselves to complete the ‘blueprint’ that has been drawn up by the ‘Grand Architect’,Lucifer and as faithfull builders to complete the design that is outlined in the ‘blueprint’. The ‘blueprint’ is a well thought out plan by Lucifer who is the Devil or Satan.
      This is the spirit of Anti Christ!
      And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!
      4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
      5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
      6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
      1John 4;3-6
      Mason’s have indeed authored and devised the following imitations of the true Church of Christ;
      Theosophical Society, Christian Science, Unitarianism, Jehovah Witnesses (its founders were Freemasons), Mormonism (founder Joseph Smith was a high ranking Freemason), ecumenical/interfaith movements (e.g. the World Council of Churches), Satanism (symbols used are drawn from Freemasonry alongside other occult sources) and the New Age Movement.
      This is why they claim to accept men of all faiths but in actuality Freemasonry’s objective is the total destruction of the Christian Church from within and without. Jesus has defeated Satan and his (Satan’s) grand scheme will fail to the glory of God the Father!! Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit of truth is saying! Jesus is Lord! Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!! The End is near, the stage is set. Take your side for the the war rages and the true Children of God follow Christ!!
      Even so come quickly Lord Jesus!! Come quickly!!

        By the blood of Jesus Christ we r set free ,when we read Mathew 24 Jesus Christ the son of God clearly told us how the signs of the end of ages will b coz many wil turn away from the faith,false prophets will arise n the activities of the anti-christ will b rampant.
        Moreso in 2nd Thesalonians 2.Paul warns Timothy about the signs of the end times.Paul speaks about how people will be lovers of money and lovers of themselves etc.So am not amazed when i read that people want to join such movements like freemasons.Your are not free but in bondage!!
        Let us thinhk of the aftermarth.money and material things will come to pass BUT JESUS CHRIST WILL RULE FOREVER AND EVER AND ALL THE POWER OF DARKNESS AND schemes of lucifer and his followers will come to a horrific end
        ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR NOW COZ TIME IS RUNNING OUT.!!!!

    true that, it is a calling. you will have to search within yourself first, to understand better how you fit into society and subsequently you will be able to find the key to the door that will help you rise above your imagination. I will have to admit that since my interest and research into freemasonry, I have become an ardent churchgoer, delving deeper into my spirituality and not just religion, to know God better and to make that impact on society…everything else will fall into place, one step at a time. Freemasonry takes good men and makes them better

    Lee and other masons have indeed tried to put up very seasoned , informed and mature arguements. But for Kenya, i think that the misconceptions begin with just sampling a few Known Masons. Select a few at random- The late job Omino (Deputy speaker), Moody Awori (former VP), Charles Njonjo (former attorney General), Aluoch (Senior Surgeon), Okok (current Deputy Grand master- Grand Lodge of East Africa, The Shah proprietors of Ken Nit Industry in Eldoret, e.t.c. One thing cuts across- They are all hard nosed Businessmen/professionals/Politicians, who in any negotiation will have their way, and pass as people who hardly care about the underdogs in any challenge.

    However, sample persons who have/had socialist orientation/Leanings/tendencies- The late Jaramogi Odinga, Pio Gama Pinto, Markhan Singh, Raila Odinga- these people seem to have a sense of community, and to balance weath distribution. If they were in the U.S.A or Britain, they would easily be associated with say, The Democratic Party or the Labour Party respectively, as Opposed to the latter group who would ordinarily fraternise with the Republican Party or the Consertive Party.

    Yes! Am here to answer reibe’s challenging questions since i have had a look at this article and seen what it entails.

    This is to reibe and all those out there wishing to know what and why freemason is.

    i am a freemason myself! I will be honest and tell all especially reibe that freemasons are actually similar to what was described up in the article.

    In short, FREEMASON IS A PART OR FORM OF DEVIL RELIGION/SATANISM. Just the same way those that say they worship a heavenly being, worship in different forms.

    We have Muslims,Buddhists,Catholics,Protestants,Hindus,Sikhs among others.However, ALL worship the SAME being.GOD.

    It is like that with devl worshipping. We are also in different religions like Witchcraft,freemason,Cults among others.However, we ALL also worship,SAME being,THE DEVIL.

    Those that say that freemason is a secret movement are right,we do stuff in secret as well as all those that worship the devil.

    That’s coz we are ashamed and intimidated to come out to the public and declare for fear of being ridiculed or rejected. So we pose as “HOLY PEOPLE’ when in fact we are not.

    I wont lie,am not afraid of being a freemason and worshiping the devil.I dont see why others are.We should in fact come out as reibe is challenging us and declare to the world.

    There are so many devil worshippers out there but few are bold enough to come out in the open and profess their belief and faith.

    Recently,i heard we devil worshippers are actually now more than 95% on this earth.However, we are of different practices like i highlighted earlier.

    Our mission is to destry the world and the living species on this earth.It is to capture as many souls as possible and lead them to the DEVIL who rewards us by giving us wealth,prosperity,power,money,control over the things of earth.The more faithful you are to the EVIL ONE, the greater your reward.

    We also sacrifice living things,especially humans.The younger the offering or sacrifice, the better! We also drink human blood like some people say we do.

    We are indeed evil itself but we pose as innocent,GOD-abiding,holy,patriotic,caring and sensitive people so that we can lure and trap as many souls and lead them to the devil as possible.

    Am not ashamed of what i am like so many of those that have tried to deny about us in this article and so many out there.Choosing to follow the devil is a choice one makes.

    Hope i have answered the questions to all those out there including those in this artcle. LIFE IS A CHOICE! I made mine to follow satan.

    Before you join us, know which choice and destiny you wish to take and follow in life.remember,anyone can join as long as they know what they are entering into.It is not for priviledged persons like some have said here.

    That is selfish of them as they dont want others to enjoy the wealth and prosperity they get as a result of following satanism. Like i said we are NOT nice people.

    IF, AND ONLY IF YOU ARE OF A BELIEF IN THIS UNIVERSAL FRATERNITY THAT SPEARHEADS UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD, FOLLOW UP INFORMATION BELLOW;
    Do you want to know how to become a Freemason? Here is some basic information which should address the question: “How do I become a Mason?”

    Freemasonry has its lodges throughout the free world. You’ll find Masons meeting in almost every town and village and – except where repressive governments make their existence difficult – they’re readily found. None of these lodges was ever organized as a result of any type of ‘missionary’ work: they came into existence because a group of Masons wanted to share the friendship and fraternity with others in the area.
    What is SO often misunderstood is a simple fact: there are few but important requirements to become a Freemason!
    While they are stated in slightly different words in various jurisdictions (and a few jurisdictions may have one or two requirements beyond these), they basically are as follows:
    1. Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended;
    2. A belief in a Supreme Being;
    3. Of lawful age; and
    4. Come to Freemasonry of their “own free will and accord”.
    Freemasonry is an initiatic experience. You can’t become a Mason by reading a book or by hanging out on the internet.

    Let’s examine the requirements for becoming a Mason individually:
    Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended

    Masonry began as a male organization. There are women’s groups and groups of mixed male-female membership who use rituals similar to that of the major body of Freemasons throughout the world. Some of these groups receive acknowledgement (but not ‘recognition’) due to their adherence to high moral principles etc. while others are frowned upon. It is, after all, quite easy for anyone to claim that they are the head of a Masonic group and begin to obtain members. (Check our list of regular/recognized Grand Lodges here and you may wish to browse our section on Fake Masonry here.)

    The requirement of being “freeborn” harkens back to the earliest days of Freemasonry. It became a requirement since only those free from indentured service as an apprentice or bondsman (as many were in 17th century England, for example), could truly make decisions for themselves.

    Being of good repute is another essential requirement. Masons do not wish to encourage membership by those whose actions would stain the reputation of the fraternity. In some jurisdictions this is specifically stated but in all, it is practiced!

    A well-recommended person is one for whom another is willing to vouch. Those who become Freemasons have been recommended by a proposer and then examined by lodge members to ensure that the candidate will benefit from his membership.
    Belief in a Supreme Being

    The major ‘bone of contention’ for some detractors, Masonry does not attempt to define or delineate how a person should pray or to whom worship should be addressed.

    The term “Great Architect of the Universe” (or “Grand Architect of the Universe”) is used to permit offerings of prayer in a non-offensive manner regardless of the varied religious beliefs of those present. All Masons understand this concept and when a prayer is said in lodge (a blessing before a meal, a word of prayer for the sick, for example), they understand that regardless of the person speaking the words or the usual form of prayer of others present, the prayer is addressed to their Supreme Being.

    Once a candidate professes such belief, no further investigation or interrogation is made. This fact stymies Freemasonry’s detractors who seem to be constantly engaged in wars of ‘religious correctness’ and who consequently wind up in contradiction with each other as a result.
    Of Lawful Age

    It’s a simply understood concept: if you are not old enough to make legal commitments, then the concepts and precepts of Freemasonry might be a bit too much for you to comprehend. Although this isn’t always true, there is a conceptual basis for separating ‘adults’ from ‘children’.

    In most US jurisdictions, this age is now 18. There are, however, some jurisdictions where the age might be 19 or 21. Canadian and other jurisdictions vary as well. Check with your local Grand Lodge. A quick summary of US/Canada ages can be found here.

    “Own Free Will and Accord”

    You won’t find recruiting posters or ‘membership bars’ on a medal although one jurisdiction has put ‘advertisements’ on various web locations including search engines like Google. Masons simply don’t get awards for bringing in new members. It’s a voluntary organization, sought out by those with a positive impression of the organization.

    Masonic membership has always been an intensely personal experience and in times when “feelings” weren’t discussed publicly by men, the need for a person to ask for membership was often not communicated to those who might otherwise be interested in the fraternity. Accordingly, there are many who became Masons much later in life than necessary: they had thought the proper thing to do was to wait to be asked to join!

    Some grand jurisdictions, recognizing the problem arising from false perceptions (“I must be asked to join such a good organization.”), have begun to loosen prior strict prohibitions. They may now have a provision for Masons to let those who they may feel would be appropriate candidates know that they are ‘welcomed’ to join. This does not, however, in any way mitigate or diminish the requirement that a man make the choice to join under his ‘own free will and accord’ not actuated by unworthy motives!

    IAM A MASTER MASON HAVING SERVED THE FRATERNITY MOST OF MY LIFETIME.
    THE POSITION OF FREEMASONRY DON’T ALLOW ANY FORM OF RECRUITMENT FROM THE WIILING MEMBERS BUT I UNDERTAKE TO BE OF HELP TO SOME POTENTIAL MEMBERS WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET THIS EMAIL.
    YOU WILL NEVER GET INTO FREEMASONRY UNLESS YOU ARE INTRODUCED BY A MASON.
    TO ENSURE THAT I ONLY DEAL WITH SERIOUS PEOPLE AND ALSO LIMITING THE NUMBER OF PETIONS,I REQUIRE THAT YOU SEND Kshs.1500 THROUGH M-PESA TO 0723279880 AFTER WHICH I WILL CALL YOU TO ARRANGE ON HOW WE CAN SOCIALLY MEET AND GET TO INTRODUCED YOU TO A LODGE OF CONVENIENCE.

    If Freemasonry was for sale, then you could have bought it from any classified pages in the Daily-Nation or E.A Standard by now. Please do not send any money to these cheap touts. It is but a con.

    To Jenny, (#55) Forgive me for not addressing your uninformed opinion. Freemasonry is NOT a religion to start with. So am afraid i can’t even answer you just from your first paranoid misconception. Which it is. There’s no worshiping of ANYTHING in Freemasonry, except we recognise the one true God above that YOU also worship. Only in Freemasonry, we refer to him as the GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE. Why? In respect to all the different cultures of the world who call God by a different name. This is what makes Freemasonry a unifying entity. We ONLY take in men of standing, who must believe in GOD, by whatever name you know him. E.g Allah or Jehovah, Ngai etc.

    Jenny, i have written atleast 3 long posts here which would have answered many of your questions. By your tone of voice, you’re obviously more interested in looking for a witch to burn. Your attention seeking ‘LOLs’ and ‘HAHAHAs’ all suggest you’re a bitter person in life in general who has few friends. I won’t even mention the questionable intellect. People like you find satisfaction in venting their suppressed anger anonymously on the internet. Its nothing new. Please don’t rush to prove me different. I won’t be interested.

    To Lance (#56), after all the posts that have gone before yours, most intelligent and analytical folks reading your post will see you for what you are. A misinformed panic monger. I could point to many things, like your poor grammar or many contradictions that tell me all i need to know. That you could never be a Freemason. Period. A Freemason can usually tell if another man is. In your case i never doubted.

    I have dared all who have posed questions before to do their homework before speaking untruths. If you’re reading this, why not start by using the internet for this? Not just relying on ignorant rants, hearsay or witch hunts.

    To all those still leaving their phone numbers, thinking they will get “hooked up”, don’t blame anyone if you get conned by the likes of John Bosco or Mr Mambo. Remember, if the deal sounds too good, it usually is. Don’t find this out the hard way.

    I have not, and do not want any money from anyone here. All i intended to do was address common misconceptions from those willing to understand what Freemasonry is. Am not trying to “recruit” anyone either. I cannot propose you to join Freemasonry as i do not know you from past. And no, i wont take your money even to do this. I still welcome challenges from those seeking to understand this subject. Not those willing to mock or ridicule others opinion. All it does is reflect on your own intelligence level. We all know that all fools use force when they cant negotiate.

    I will repeat. I welcome any challenges with an intent to understand. If you can’t discuss without insults or lies, then you should go to the forum pages on misterseed.com where you’ll be quite welcomed by your kind.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

I admire the way you handle Jenny, even though you do not need to blast her. I admire your confidence. I would like to have a discursive forum with you in person since I regard myself a a very intelligent person, and it is so.

    You still live in fear and denial! How unfortunate. you talk of my grammar like yours is of a super human or genius level,which i must be honest is not.

    Lee, dont lie or mislead others, you are only fooling yourself in the end.

    Be proud like me and a few of my other friends and life may be meaningful to you.

    If you were indeed a holy,upright man, which is what you wish all to believe, you would not insult others as you have done in this last comment of yours.

    really interesting article that has cme up.

    From all i have read, i can see that indeed many here are of different opinions and views. personally, i respect all of them.

    However, the coments made by Lee make me wonder and question the integrity and truthfulness of the individual.

    Every living thing is free to express their own opinion and what i do not agree or respect is when one individual, puts down others or undermines what they say due to the simple fact that they believe they are better,holier or more superior than the rest.

    Hey Lee!
    What is it with you? You claim to be freemason but i cant help but doubt that you truly are. If you are, you must be one of the fakes or black sheep of the group.

    You spend more time critizing, judging and ridiculing others than you do spend on explaining what the freemason really is about.

    I believe you either have a serious problem with your self esteem or ego.

    This attitude of : ‘ i am better than everyone else, i am Mr. know it all, i am holier than thou’ is really pathetic and disgusting.

    since that is the picture you give all of us of freemason, i dont believe it is a good thing to enter into in the first place.

    watch your manners and learn to respect others!

    As for jenny, oh my! You truly know how to make one laugh with all those words and questions of yours.

    First of all, i would like to unreservedly apologize to all who feel i may have offended them. It was not and never was my intention. I can assure all who doubt my intentions that am not trying to impose anything on anyone either. All i gave was an opinion.

    I am a Freemason and proud of it. But i can’t always show it, because declaring this in itself was ALWAYS going to earn me ridicule from many who don’t understand Freemasonry.

    I’ve attempted to blow the myths about Freemasonry in my earlier posts and encouraged all to undertake their own due diligence before believing untruths and hearsay. Maybe this also came across all wrong. But i am no mind reader, egomaniac or a “god” as suggested. But i will accept that maybe my self confidence has also put off others. Am not cocky nor a know-it-all either.

    I live my life in HUMILITY, and it means i am a friend to ALL. I have held various leadership positions in my life. Even international ones. I would like to think it was because of my ability to bring people together, not divide them. But by expressing confidence, others think am trying to be holier than thou!

    All i have done here, is try to reach out all those WHO SEE EVIL IN EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE THEY DON’T KNOW OR UNDERSTAND. Like Freemasonry.

    To Scott. I don’t live with a “siege mentality”. Its NOT me against the world, as am not fighting you or anyone, neither do i feel threatened about anything. You got the wrong end of the stick here.

    To Jeff. I spent most of my last post replying to insults i received. But i ended that same post asking all those with genuine and valid questions about Freemasonry to field them. Not throw insults. Can i point out here that i don’t speak for any group of Freemasons either. Just for myself as one. So no, am not a professor of anything.

    To be honest, we all owe the initial owner of this article at the top an apology for hijacking it off topic! But i will now repeat my offer. If you feel you have a valid question about Freemasonry, then ask without malice, and i can do my best to shed some light. And if i can’t i will tell you where else to get further reading. I can’t be more direct than that.

    Am no better than ANYONE i have addressed so far. But am not beyond fault myself, and maybe i need to work on my own communication skills too! Luckily learning is an endless process.

    I hope i have come across much clearer now.

    GOD BLESS.

    Ok, from what i have read and the comments that have been given, it is quite clear that even though there have been various views and opinions on the freemasonry, two things seem to stand out:

    they are a secretive association,group or movement.
    they believe in a supreme being that is different from the rest of us.

    Lance,thankx for sharing broadly and openly about the freemasonry. My brother has been seeking to join you freemasons and now i can tell him about you guys. So once again, thanx for coming out with the details.

    am suprissed that all people ask for is money for them to help people join the fraternity. its a shame. we need genine people who can escorts all this brothers to the fraternity without even thinking twice because they have all made up their minds and am sure since they are all grown up and they all know what they are looking for.its ones choice to do whatever they want in life.

    am keyan living in the uk.recently i had an argument with my brother who s also a citizen i the uk over the fact that he had joined masonry without my knowledge,.am praying for him so much that he may see its not necessary and much less impotant.religion has led people to being religious.like in any other social realms,it has been divided in to classes where christiians being the majority have had the mind set that they are superior over any other religion in existance, but though still they should be reminded of the finer split into religiouis christian and spiritual christian.i believe masonry is a cult and not a religion.however there is a great misconception over cultic groups and religious groups.i would suggest that those cultic groups which think they add value to the society to come out and explicitly prove that,the likes of masons

    Interesting reading in all these articles. I would like to urge all those who wish to be masons to stop and think and ask themselves why they would like to join fremasonry. If they believe what has been said by the self confessed masons up here (except Lance of course) is true and it’s the reason they would like to join, then you do not really need to be escorted to some ritual in a lodge order to be a mason. Just make a decision wthin yourself that from today henceforth, you will lead an upright life, you will love the next man as though he’s your brother and treat him in the same maner you’d like him to treat you, you will not be judgmental towards others and you will seek a closer relationship with your God. Once you do all these things you willl start seeing your life becoming better day by day. MAY GOD BLESSS US ALL!!!!!!

    Don’t expect a Freemason like me to come to you or call you after simply reading your bloody mails on this site!
    The condition is very clear,show us your seriousness by looking and expressing your interest in Freemasonry to that member who knows you very well and then maybe if you a person of good integrity then he’s gonna propose you into our fraternity.BE WARNED THAT FREEMASONRY IS NOT FOR EVERYONE BRO’S,BUT PEOPLE OF GOOD REPUTE.All i can do is recommending you to a member in your area in case i know any after maybe contacting me and knowing the of person you are!GOD BLESS YOU.(michel_benedict@yahoo.com)

    Hi Colin. Am a Kenyan who belongs to a London lodge. I strongly advise you to follow craft protocol in this instance and go via your lodge secretary to organize your visit to Mombasa. Half the people posting on here as Masons have nothing to do with Freemasonry and are busy looking for ways to extort money from others using false impressions of what Freemasonry is. There’s also an issue with “irregularity”. If you don’t believe me, then put a few of them to the task of due diligence and see for yourself! If you get stuck, then come back to me. Good luck.!

    But God’s word smashes the Masonic partiality and the Masonic secrecy apart in Job 13 :10

    “God will surely rebuke you..if in secret, you show partiality..”

    It is an attractive stall set out for good men to see.
    But behind the stall stands one who is not an angel of light, but one who is as an angel of light.

    God’s word tells us in 1 John 4 1.. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God”

    And how do you test the spirit behind any organisation?

    You lay it alongside the truth of God as revealed in His word.

    That in a nutshell is what this databank enables you to do.

    It will enable you to test the Masonic order, by lifting up and probing deeply into its cloak of secrecy, to see whether it is of God, and therefore able to be blessed by God, or of the devil and so coming automatically under God’s terrible curse.

    If the Spirit of God is behind freemasonry, then the oaths, the rituals, the teachings, the titles given to God, the titles given to men, and indeed the whole ethos will tie in perfectly with God’s spoken word in the Bible.

    If it does not, then we know that the Masonic spirit, is not the Holy Spirit, but another spirit.

    But which spirit, if not the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Jesus Christ?

    Two verses further on in first John we read..

    “..every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God..”

    That’s a simple black and white truth to begin with.

    Jesus said “you study the scriptures because you think that in them you will find eternal life. And these very scriptures speak about Me. Yet you are not willing to come to Me in order to have life” John 5:39-40

    The Masonic goes to great lengths to delete the very name of Jesus from every scripture used by its members. That is blasphemy number one. That is abomination number one in God’s sight.

    Can you honestly imagine, the Spirit of God, actually influencing men, to remove the name of Jesus from God’s word?

    1
    “So mote it be” is not unique to Freemasonry. It is used by coven participants to seal a spell / curse / sorcery and send it on its way.

    “That name as is revealed to the Royal arch mason not as Jehovah, but as ‘Jah-bul-on’. (removed in England 1989 after much adverse publicity – see recent developments section)

    A name straight from hell itself.

    A trinity of names made up of Jehovah, the God of the Hebrews, Baal, the ancient fertility god of the Bible, and Osiris, the Egyptian god of the underworld, or the dead.”

    And as we’ll see more and more clearly as we progress deeper into the order, it proves to be blasphemy, disobedience to God’s Word, mockery and actions that are an utter abomination in God’sight – all the way.

    2
    We are commanded to bless and not to curse.

    Yet, when a man is accepted into the brotherhood, he is accepted on condition that he swears before men and before unseen witnesses in the heavenlies around him, several fearsome oaths, or curses, that he actually agrees may fall upon him, should he reveal Masonic
    secrets to outsiders.

    What does the word of God have to say about men who choose to swear by these violent oaths?

    James 5 12 is perfectly clear to all Christians..

    “But ABOVE ALL..(note: above all), my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or earth, or with any other oath, but let your ‘yes’ be yes and your ‘no’ be no, that you may not fall under condemnation.”

    If God’s hand is not over those oaths, whose hand do you think is?

    Much of Masonic ceremony centres around murder, and has horrendous demonic overtones

    There is so much to be said on the comments left above so I will try and keep it brief and to the point. First, let me point out the obvious…

    • Jon Bosco, mambo and the likes are con artists. Pure and simple.
    • Lance, I take it you were being sarcastic or at the very least trying to be entertaining about all the activities you “do” as a freemason. Obviously, you were not. So may I suggest that in future, you research before you make such false and preposterous allegations.
    • Jenny, you are so quick to call freemasonry devil worshipping without even bothering to undertake basic research on the subject. It is people like you who, in the not so recent past, classified microwaves and Polaroid photos as “demonic” because they could not apprehend the science behind them.

    Having stated the above, let me go on to say that I am a Kenyan citizen currently residing in the Middle East and therefore I understand and to a certain extent sympathize with the unexposed Kenyan mind set. That mind set, to put it simply is IGNORANCE. As Lee stated earlier, “many of us christian Kenyans are taught quite early in life to label all we don’t know much about as devil worship.” More over, mankind throughout history has been known to attempt to obliterate that which it doesn’t know or understand as an “act of God.” This line of thought is contradictory as it stems from fear and not out of love as our religions have painstakingly taught us.

    This sort of prejudiced opinion, is what has no doubt in the past led to anti-Semitism (holocaust) racism, homophobia, slavery and more closer to home, the recent post- election violence. Again, to quote Lee, “Intolerance is the cause of war and strife.” We as Kenyans and indeed the human race must make it our individual endeavor to overcome this negative mind sets. I am not advocating for a utopian society but what I am campaigning for is open-mindedness and tolerance on this issues that pertain to us as Kenyans and as human beings. We are after all, regardless of sex, race, age, marital status, colour, tribe, sexual-orientation, creed, religion, part of the HUMAN RACE.

    Ironically, I was once of the mind set that freemasons were devil worshipers and they were all going to hell. After all this is what the media, church and schools promoted. Even our president at the time (Moi) helped fuel this ludicrous views by launching a commission in 1996 to investigate “devil worshiping/freemasonry phenomenon!!!” That was before I personally decided to investigate who they were and what they stood for. Now, armed with this knowledge, I have made the PERSONAL conclusion that they are just simply a group of individuals who have come together with the same frame of mind to work together for the good of all and their communities. In short, and I quote from the internet, “Freemasonry’s central preoccupations remain charitable work within a local or wider community, moral uprightness (in most cases requiring a belief in a Supreme Being) as well as the development and maintenance of fraternal friendship amongst brethren.”

    It is a shame that women in general cannot join them except in some lodges or orients. I am yet to find out about the Kenyan one and if they do I would be honored to be a part of this admirable organization.

    So, let us individually do our part to wipe out ignorance and intolerance. The change starts with You…Yes YOU! As Kenyans, we can also catch up with the rest of the world by first accepting that homosexuals are part of us. (Just thought I would throw that in as food for thought given the current media circus on the gay nuptials.) However that’s a whole other topic all together. Let us remember as Chuck said, “IGNORANCE among people is the greatest threat to free democracy.”

    God bless you all and remember that GOD IS LOVE.

    The only common bond in homo sapiens is mind ergo intelligence.
    If you cannot accept women; you are bigoted and prejudiced.
    All your lofty ideals and charitable works are as nothing because you are discriminatory.
    I applaud your take on ignorance but wash your ignorance out first. Women have been masons and would make good masons.

    Dear all Christians,

    I am shocked how guys can be foolish. How can you just join a fraternity in which guys in one level dont know what guys on the higher level know? I have met 33rd degree Masons who are very frustrated and realised the damn thing is actually devil worship after climbing up the degrees. they started practicing black magic rituals. Why would anyone be so stupid as to be blindfolded and have a sharp compass on his breast and a rolled up sleeve chanting shit and being told “arise and follow you conductor your faith is well founded” blaaah blaaah! What happened to Our living God Jehovah?????? Jesus is the only way! I know almost evrything about Freemasons, Skulls and Bones, Bohevian Grove, the Bilderbergers, CFR, The Illuminati and believe you me these lodges you are so interested in Joining are just a sham! to make sure that those who matter ( Illuminati – The world Govt) get information about every country since all “elite presidents, lawyers, doctors ministers e.t.c.” will be initiated. This is Satans scheme to compromise christianity. Being stupid to believe that its harmless to believe in any supreme being. Why have secrets? Dont get suspicious when you hear of secrets?
    Secret Hadshakes? Secret hugs, coded words and all those symbols?

    Jesus is the way, the life and the truth. No one goes to the father unless through him. When you call God a grand Architect and you are with Muslims, Hindus, Satanists then you can rest assured that is not what Jesus calls worshipping in spirit and truth

    what i would like to tell you guys is that for you to be a freemason you have to undergo a ritual and in this ritual the old manners you had die and you are transformed to a new being and as a new being you have to uphold the values of the woshipful master and the doctrines of the elders of the grand lodge you swear the alliegence to themand put all your trust in the elders of the grand lodge and no other being and oath to seal the secret to your death the only other brother you have is your fellow mason and no other brother. its tough to be one as you dont know whats up as you climb the ladder all i can tell you is trust in the lord and not in man,before you make a choice know its a lifetime commitment,because once u get in there is no way out its not a cheap affair if you have ears listen!

    Why are freemasons not mentioning JESUS in this forum?

    You need a saivour and certainly not Hiram abbif but JESUS

    You need a concious God not a ‘IT’ (GAOTU)

    Your good works alone can’t safe your soul, JESUS will.

    You have to acknowledge your sinfulness and be forgiven rather than continue denying your spiritual, moral. and eternal obligation.

    You freemasons preach void, nothingness and emptiness to substitute the savior (JESUS) inorder to justify your sins and carnal appetites – all cults do.

    Salvation of the soul requires absolutes, not the kind of sham you believe, and the absolute in this case is JESUS

    What do you clique of guys mean when you say god? you think that is enough? everybody can say that and it doesn’t mean anything !!! You need commitment to that God through JESUS who is the only mediator btwn man and God.

    The foolish guys asking to join freemason, you either seek salvation in JESUS or you rot in Hell !!!! period….

    I have enjoyed reading all your opinions and found this while doing research on freemasonry in Africa. I am Ugandan. Last week I visted Israel and went to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Although it was for business, I made sure that I spared enough time to visit these places that have great significance in my Anglican religion. I learned a long time ago that in order to feel comfortable with my religion and many of the basic tenets we blindly believe in, I needed to read and learn as much as I could about the history of religion. When I was a teenager I felt that the messages I was getting from church and my christian boarding school were contradicting what I felt I understood when I read the Bible myself.

    Since then (I am 36 now), I have read most of the religious books covering Islam, Buddhism, Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Church (Russian & Greek), Hindu and more. I have even read about our traditional African religions. I have found that the underlying message in all these religions is that there is ONE GOD and that He created the universe as we know it. I have also found that many of the religions have the same stories – as if they all meant to teach the same principles. To cut a long story short, my belief in Christianity as a religion dwindled. But a rather funny thing happened also. I am able to read the Bible now and understand the stories in the context of what was happening at the time. Kings David and Solomon, Abraham, Moses and Aaron and Jesus Christ himself all existed and beyond a shadow of a doubt were remarkable, if not supernatural, beings. The more you learn, the more you come to appreciate the power that these personalities had. As you learn about world events in man’s history, you have no choice but to accept that there is ONE GOD.

    So now to Freemasonry. In the last 4 years, I have researched what some call “ancient” knowledge. Many different groups claim to have this knowledge ranging from open devil worshippers, to cults, to small religious groups. Then there are the “secret societies” of which range from witchcraft clubs to political and social clubs. I researched them because I was looking for something special – something that I felt to be true but could not find reflected in any main stream religion. In fact, main stream religions such as Catholics, Protestants, Jews and Muslims acknowledge the existence of certain esoteric knowledge that they have worked very hard to hide and in some cases get rid of. It is the quest for this knowledge that leads people down a particular path that will make them choose a “secret society”.

    Freemasons are a brotherhood (in some places there are women masons too) that is made up of people who deep inside “felt” the yearning to learn more. There are other groups just like them. So to all those here trying to join them for riches – no luck. The wealth attainable is far more valuable than any material riches on this earth. As someone suggested get a job, join an investment club or a community based organization if what you want is money. But even then, it will take some work. I know for a fact that you cannot become “rich” by becoming a mason per se.

    I am not a freemason and being a woman in Uganda, I probably could not become one even if I wanted to. We have no women lodges here as far as I know. To Lee and all others who have tried to explain what Freemasonry is about, I commend your desire to rid the world of its misconceptions. To those who mock or argue and insult Masons, you are wasting valuable time. I understand the need to defend your beliefs but I can see that you are all quite ignorant of historical facts. I suggest to you that if you want to be a Crusader for Christ, please do some basic reading and learning about how Christianity got to where it is today. It will make you much better defenders since you will have acquired enough knowledge with which to accuse and/or judge other peoples beliefs. There are a couple of people who truly want to learn. The Bible says “Seek and you shall find”.

    CUTTING EDGE MINISTRIES

    FREEMASONRY PROVEN TO WORSHIP SATAN , AS IT ADORES AND WORSHIPS THE SERPENT — STUDY OF SYMBOLS,

    As we study Masonic symbols, we see that serpent worship is rampant within Masonry. This serpent worship absolutely proves Freemasonry is Satan worship . But, Masons also consider the S erpent to be the Savior of the World!

    Most of the article on Freemasonry below has been taken from Masonic books that have been published by Masonic Publishing Companies, and most of them were formerly very, very secret. We further have taken the Biblical admonition carefully, comparing Masonic teachings to the Holy Bible. In 1 John 4:1, we see this command to all Christians: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (test) the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” Thus we see that any religious teaching that does not conform to Scripture is from a “false prophet”.

    This exercise is not an empty one, for your eternal, precious soul is at stake. Finally, remember two things about Masonry: 1) Superior Masons deliberately lie to their fellow Masons, as those Masons “deserve to be mislead”; 2) Explanations given to 95% of all Masons are wrong. Listen to this quote from a Masonic author, Carl Claudy: “Cut through the outer shell and find a meaning; cut through that meaning and find another; under it, if you dig deep enough, you may find a third, a fourth — who shall say how many teachings?” You have been lied to, as we demonstrate in our many articles. Finally, remember Albert Pike’s bold assertion in Morals & Dogma, that “Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries “, which means that all their teachings in all their books are precisely the same as the Ancient, Pagan, Satanic Mysteries!

    Please, we implore you, take the time to read our articles so you may finally know the Truth of Jesus Christ, the God of the Universe which Masons contemptuously call an “inferior god”, and Whom they never, ever mention in their teachings or their rituals. We fervently pray that the Holy Spirit will illumine your mind, heart, and soul with the knowledge of the true God, and only the true God, of the Holy Bible.

    SERPENT WORSHIP IN FREEMASONRY

    Imagine our shock and disbelief when we stumbled on to the fact that Freemasonry adores and worships the Serpent just as completely as do most pagan groups of the past 5,000 years. We shall be quoting Freemasonry sources, directly from the source itself, and we shall be showing symbols that go along with the text. Since a “picture is worth 1,000 words”, this article will be another “smoking gun” evidence proving that Freemasonry is Luciferian as we have been charging.

    Albert Pike, in his monumental book, Morals & Dogma , speaks greatly about the importance of the worship of the serpent in the various pagan mysteries’ religions of antiquity. As you read his description of the importance of the serpent worship, please bear in mind that Pike has dogmatically stated, “Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries “, which means that all their teachings in all their books are precisely the same as the Ancient, Pagan, Satanic Mysteries! Now, let us hear from Albert Pike, 33 Degree Mason, of the Southern Jurisdiction.

    “The serpent entwined around the egg, was a symbol common to the Indians, the Egyptians, and the Druids. It referred to the creation of the Universe.” [p. 496; teaching of the 25 Degree, Knight of the Brazen Serpent ]

    In several past articles, we have noted that Freemasonry does NOT believe that the Universe was created by God of the Holy Bible, as recorded in Genesis. This statement really supports that concept, as it dogmatically states that the serpent entwined around the egg is a symbol of the creation of the universe !

    Further, I find it highly damning that Freemasonry idolizes the Druids. Not only does Pike mention the Druids in this sentence, above, but other Masonic authors are far more bold and forthright in their admission that Freemasonry venerates them because their Mysteries’ Religion is identical to the Druids. Listen:

    “… our mode of teaching the principles of our profession [Masonry] is derived from the Druids … and our chief emblems originally came from Egypt …” [William Hutchinson, Mason, The Spirit of Masonry, revised by George Oliver, New York, Bell Publishing, originally published in 1775, p. 195]

    Albert Churchward, another Masonic writer, states that Masons are “our present Druids”. [Albert Churchward, Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man: the Evolution of Religious Doctrine from the Eschatology of the Ancient Egyptians, London, England, George Allen and Company, Ltd. 1913, Second Edition, p. 189.

    Another Masonic author, George Oliver, also noted Freemasonry's connection with the Druids. "The Druids had a high veneration for the Serpent. Their great god, Hu, was typified by that reptile; and he is represented by the Bards as 'the wonderful chief Dragon, the sovereign of heaven'." [George Oliver, Signs and Symbols, New York, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1906, p. 36; Emphasis and capitalization in the original] At least, this Satanic view of the serpent and the dragon being identical beings is consistent with the Bible, as the Scripture says they both are symbols of Satan [Revelation 12:9]

    When Masonic authors Pike, Hutchinson, Churchward, and Oliver identify Masonry as coming from the Druid religion, this admission is extremely damning. “Masons .. admire the Druids and some of them even claim that Masonry came from Druidism. Of course, the Druids were occultic priests, practiced astrology, and offered human sacrifices.” [Dr. C. Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 28] Wonderful. This statement means that Freemasonry practices both White Magic and Black Magick witchcraft. The Illuminati practices Black Magick witchcraft, and so will Antichrist!

    Albert Pike then reveals that other Mysteries’ Religions throughout the globe and at different times also worshipped the serpent, in various ways. For example: [quotes below taken from Morals and Dogma , p. 496-500]

    1) “The Phoenicians represented the God Nomu (Kneph or Amun-Kneph) by a serpent”

    2) “In Egypt, a Sun supported by two asps was the emblem of Horhat the good genius; the serpent with the winged globe was placed over the doors and windows of the Temples as a tutelary God.” [The word, "tutelary" means "guardian"]

    3) In ancient Tyre, and India, “a serpent was … coiled around the trunk of a tree. Python, the Serpent Deity, was esteemed oracular; and the tripod at Delphi was a triple-headed serpent of gold.” [NOTE: Also, Pike capitalized as we printed, above]

    4) “The portals of the Egyptian Temples are decorated with the hierogram of the Circle and the Serpent”

    5) The serpent “is found upon the Temple of Naki-Rustan in Persia, on the triumphal arch at Pechin, in China, over the gates of the great Temple of Chaundi Teeva, in Java; upon the walls of Athens … The Mexican hierogram was formed by the intersecting of two great Serpents, which described the circle with their bodies, and each a human head in its mouth.” [NOTE: Pike capitalized Serpent, above, to denote Deity] While we may think it abhorrent for a snake to be swallowing a human, we discover that the Satanist had a different point of view. A Satanic book of symbols, entitled, Magic Symbols , says that a snake swallowing a human being symbolizes “the process of initiation. When a man has prepared himself as to achieve insight into the nature of the spiritual realm, then he is said to be an initiate. A true initiate is one who has been given, or who has earned, such wisdom as permits him to look on such a brilliant influx of spiritual light … without damaging his vision.” What this gobble-dee-gook means is that a man has to be prepared to worship Satan, because such worship goes against all of God’s instinctive knowledge about Himself which He has placed in every man. Of course, this is exactly what Freemasonry does. As a man is invited to go up the degrees, he is told more and more things, until finally, about the 28th Degree, he realizes he is worshipping Lucifer, the good god. He has been mightily prepared for this revelation, so he can “look on such a brilliant influx of spiritual light without damaging his vision”!

    6) “All the Buddhist crosses in Ireland had serpents carved upon them. Wreaths of snakes are on the columns of the ancient Hindu Temple at Burwah-Sangor.”

    7)

    “Among the Egyptians, it was a symbol of Divine Wisdom, when extended at length; and with its tail in its mouth, of Eternity.” [Again, Pike capitalized Divine Wisdom and Eternity, denoting Deity] All the pagans in every era have used the serpent to worship and to consider as symbolic of Wisdom. A Satanic book of symbols, entitled, Magic Symbols, says, “… we shall see the deeper implications of the serpent as a symbol of wisdom …” This figure, above, is identified as being one used in the practice of Alchemy, an art normally thought of as attempting to turn base metals into gold, but which also has a spiritual objective of achieving eternal life. By the way, this symbol of the snake devouring its own tail is called “Ouroboros”. [p. 11; Emphasis added]

    This symbol is also called, “Ouroboros”, but its meaning is deeper. “This snake, sometimes called the Ouroboros, is a symbol of Time, from which alone Wisdom springs. The snake encircles the two symbols of the extremes of created life — the child and the death-symbol of the skull. Between them, the child and skull are intended to symbolize the ‘beginning and then end’. As a whole, the emblem may be interpreted as meaning, ‘In the end, is my beginning’, or ‘The End is Found in the Beginning’, which is approximately what the Latin around the circle means.” [ Magic Symbols, Ibid.] These two statements are speaking of the pagan belief in Reincarnation

    I also am offended by the fact that the Satanist views the entire created world as being surrounded and controlled by the serpent, as this second Ouroboros depicts. But, I guess the Bible states that Satan is the “Lord of this World”, is the “Prince of the Power of the Air”, and is generally in control of this wicked world until Jesus Christ returns.

    Does Freemasonry share this belief that the serpent symbolizes time, as this second Ouroboros indicates? Yes, they do. Listen to Pike explain this succinctly. “A serpent-ring was a well-known symbol of time.” {Ibid., p. 497]

    As Pike is explaining the Mason’s spiritual belief about the serpent, he mentions the Zodiac, bees and honey. Listen. “The Virgin of the zodiac is bitten in the heel by Serpens, who, with Scorpio, rises immediately behind her; and as honey, the emblem of purity and salvation, was thought to be an antidote to the serpent’s bite, so the bees of Aristaeus, the emblems of nature’s abundance, are destroyed through the agency of the serpent, and regenerated within the entrails of the Vernal Bull. The Sun-God is finally victorious.” [Ibid.] Note that Masonry identified also identifies itself with the pagans who divine the future by studying the entrails of a bull. This is such blatant Satanism!

    Thus, throughout Masonic symbols, you consistently see the symbol of the bees and their beehive. I had always been curious as to why the beehives were so commonly depicted on Masonic web sites, because Christianity does not use this symbol. But, now, thanks to Pike, we now know. Note, also, that the honey depicts “purity” and “salvation”. This symbolism is also blasphemous, because the Bible depicts purity as either Jesus Himself, or as white wool, or as a white garment. Salvation is depicted as the Cross or Jesus arising from the grave. But, the pagans are surely true to the Biblical description of them as “worshipping the creature rather than the Creator” [Romans 1:25]

    The July, 1998, issue of The Scottish Rite Journal states that the eagle was also a symbol of regeneration and rebirth. [Jim Tresner, 33 Degree, "Wings of the Eagle, Wings On Our Feet", Scottish Rite Journal, July, 1998, p. 7. But, another Masonic writer returned back to the symbolism of the snake as regeneration, or reincarnation. [Herbert F. Inman, Masonic Problems and Queries, London, England, A. Lewis, Ltd., 1987, p. 210. Also stated by Charles G. Berger, Our Phallic Heritage , New York, Greenwich Book Publishers, Inc., p. 204.]

    In fact, listen to how the Satanic book, A Dictionary of Symbols, explains the importance of the snake. “Snakes are guardians of the springs of life and of immortality, and also of those superior riches of the spirit that are symbolized by hidden treasure … the serpent is the life-force which determines birth and rebirth and hence it is connected with the Wheel of Life …” {Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols , p. 286-288]

    Albert Pike gives us the explanation for these two Masonic columns, both of which depict a serpent. “Serpents encircling rings and globes, and issuing from globes, are common in the Persian, Egyptian, Chinese, and Indian monuments. Vishnu is represented reposing on a coiled serpent, whose folds form a canopy over him.” [Pike, Morals and Dogma, teachings of the 25th Degree, Knight of the Brazen Serpent , p. 500]

    However, we are in for a rude shock. Notice that the column on the left not only has a serpent encircling a globe, but notice also that the globe itself has wings. Another source quotes H.G. Wells as saying that the winged globe is “to become the symbol of the New World Order when it overtly rules the world.” [Fritz Springmeier, The Watchtower and the Masons , Portland, Oregon, 1992, p. xi]

    That means the Masonic column on the left depicts the symbol of the final Kingdom of Antichrist, his New World Order! Once again, we have a strong connection between Freemasonry and the coming Kingdom of Antichrist.

    FREEMASONRY DEPICTS THE SAVIOR AS THE SERPENT!!

    We now draw your attention to the Masonic Apron depicted here. You will note the All-Seeing Eye on the left upper , the Sun worship symbol in the right upper , and the beehive with bees toward the bottom, all very typical Masonic and Satanic symbols. But, note the centerpiece symbol, with the Satanic Death’s Head in the middle of the Masonic Emblem of the Compass and Square. Notice that this symbol is surrounded by an Ouroboros, the snake eating its own tail. Further, notice that two sprigs of evergreen bough are below the Compass and Square; the Satanist uses the evergreen to depict eternal life. But, now, let us listen to two Masonic authors shed even more light on this subject:

    “The Serpent is universally esteemed a legitimate symbol of Freemasonry.” [George Oliver, Signs and Symbols , New York, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1906, p. 36] Now at least we know the truth about Freemasonry! Its “legitimate symbol” is the serpent, and note the capitalization of serpent, above, denoting Deity. This is another admission by this Masonic author that Freemasonry worships Satan, the Devil [Revelation 12:9]

    But, now listen to the ultimate admission from Masonic authors that Freemasonry worships Satan.

    “The serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by giving creation the knowledge of itself and the realization of good and evil.” [Manly P. Hall, 33 Degree Mason, The Secret Teachings of All Ages , the Philosophical Research Society Press, p. lxxxviii.]

    Let us repeat this insight for you: “The serpent is the symbol and prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds …”

    Thank you very much for this insight, Mr. Hall; of course, we should not be surprised, for Mr. Hall told us in his book, The Lost Keys Of Freemasonry, that the properly prepared Mason had the “seething energies of Lucifer in his hands”, [p. 48]

    Can you imagine such blasphemy? Freemasons depict the Universal Savior of the world as the Serpent. This boldly damning statement was never meant for public eyes, because this book was published as a secret book. Now do you see why Freemasonry insists that their Initiates take a solemn vow to never divulge their secrets, under the penalty of having their throat slit and being disemboweled?

    But, Albert Pike, the most revered 33 Degree Mason of all time, has more blasphemy. Listen to him describe the Ouroboros, the symbol of the serpent devouring his own tail. “It is the body of the Holy Spirit, the Universal Agent, the Serpent devouring its own tail.” [Morals and Dogma , p. 734, teachings of the 28th Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept]

    Thus, Freemasonry blasphemes both Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of the Trinity. What did Jesus Christ say about this type of situation? “All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.” [Matthew 12:31-32]

    Bible scholars call this sin, the Unpardonable Sin. Congratulations, Masons, you have just committed the Unpardonable Sin! This is very serious, because, once a person commits the Unpardonable Sin, the Holy Spirit stops working in his heart, convicting him of sin and trying to get him to ask forgiveness through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Thus, that person is doomed.

    The facts are now in:

    Freemasonry is boldly, completely, and totally Satanic.

    We issue an especially strong warning to all Christian churches and pastors caught up in Freemasonry. “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” This warning is from Jesus Christ Himself, so you must take it very seriously, if you value your eternal soul.

    If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

    If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

    If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

    We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order — Kingdom of Antichrist — in their daily news.

    Greetings,
    All you debaters are right about being wrong and yet wrong a bout what is right.
    just came a bout this site today as i was doing my research coz am more philosophical and open minded about things rather than interpreting everything and event in accordance to religious believes, doctrines and teachings.
    Am sorry for the single / simple / closed minded people like Jenny( nothing personal & am not hating on you) let me try to educate or re-Educate you and your like minded colleagues.
    kindly if you may please fist visit /Google: http://WWW.zeitgeist.com
    and learn the true origins of religions and how corrupt they all are.
    Egyptian religion existed 3000BC before Christianity and to make it even worse Christianity is a complete copy of Egypt religion with pagan symbols all around it, in addition there are other many religions with the same foundations and believes that were founded before Christianity, example is Krishna of Hinduism, was born of a virgin, born on 25th Dec, preceded by three kings, performed miracles,died for thee days and was resurrected on the third day and went to heaven, this are just a few of the most fundamentals of Christianity. the smae is also seen all over the world on many religions formed/ founded before even “Christ” was born. there are true accounts by historians who existed before, after, and around that time where Christ was born and lived and of all the 42 historians none of them mentioned Jesus Christ. he never existed.
    am sorry to tell you that religions of this world are but a political tool of control, another form of divide and rule and drafted by the same people who brought to us the monetary system coz they always need money which is the greatest evil of all time without it we would be very OK.
    please do not think that am telling you not to believe in your believes, but it is also good to open your mind to all other things, information is free, choose well and wisely but know all the facts first then feel free to be where you feel most comfortable.
    it is very foolish (am stating a fact not calling anyone names) to choose faith over facts coz that is what most of us have been taught and is always on default in our thought process when responding to things that question our believes on various aspects of life and things.
    example is; true love, when girl meets a boy she likes in this case the boy is a known player (bad boy) but she wont leave him even if she’s hit by a track until when she opens her eyes and see the reality the real truth, it’s when she stops and this only happens after the boy uses and finally dumps her and goes on to hook up with another girl most probably her best friend. can you guess the most stupid thing the girl says after all that? “Oh, my God why did i not see this coming” “how stupid was i to fall for this guy and his tricks?” dahhhhh
    Dumb isn’t it? the truth is she knew all along, she saw it coming even before they consummated the relationship she new he was a player and what they do. but just like those of us who are one minded, closed minded fanatics, who preffer ignorance over knowledge, she chose FAITH over FACTS hoping he will change or she will make a difference or be the one or be the one who changes him……… and that is why she/ (girls) ended up being heart broken, single mothers often, without a home and full of tears and sorrow regreting that she once was told and warned by every one but she ignored the information dissmissed it as slunder & blasfimers those who quetioned her stand. This is what truely happens in life when yuo choose ignorance as a deffece mechanism it may be bliss but all the more dangerous.
    i am Kenyan business man and i believe in a supreme being, in logic and philosophy always open to new ideologies so i may learn more and new staff that i didn’t know, I reside in Nairobi and ave allays wonder how it is to be a free mason , what knowledge do they posses things that i don’t know, it’s the only social forum that ave always wanted to be associated to or be in but unfortunately i cant coz i have never gotten a hold of some one whom is already in it to guide me on how i can go about it, mind you guys i have tried to do so for the last 7yrs so i gave up and i just Google, the Zeitgeist movement,Illuminati and the Free mason.
    this site includes even movies showing facts of what you choose to believe blindly just coz it’s what you were taught in class and Sunday school, open your mind there is very little you know of this world and you life as well that you have been denied to know. if you or any one wants the 2 movies which are documentaries full of vincible facts and documents i can send them to you. information is power and makes you understand things, when you do understand you learn to ask and transform what is.

      My dear brother I’ve read your article and I realize that you don’t understand Christianity. The idols you see in Catholic Churches were introduced by devil worshipers and that is why Catholics have a problem with salvation. Most Catholics who get saved realise this truth and move out to Pentecostals.
      We all know that the day Jesus was born was not recorded and could not have been in winter.
      The only celebration we are to celebrate is the passover which coincides with Jesus death and resurrection.
      Salvation is not joining some organisation but rather joining oneself to God. This experience is personal and no human speech is sufficient to describe it. You require a personal touch of God.
      You can only experience this mighty work of God when you turn away from your sins and invite Jesus into your life. God bless you.

    [...] About the reference to Masons there (who builds that built Beijing?) and the Illuminati, don’t take his bars as mere rhymes.  Bamboo and he, who used to make up a long time favourite K-SOUTH, are well read in what ‘normal people’ call conspiracy theories and I would love to share an exegesis with anyone who has the time but for now I will leave you to look up two things; one Bamboo’s real name from Wikipedia’s entry on him here then visit that post about freemasonry’s hand in Nairobi’s architecture and check out comment number 11.

    IF U ARE HONEST AND TRULY HONEST TO YOUR SELVES,whether already a mason or lookin 4 the door to knock into masonry,P L E A S E,read carefuly the above posting by the CUTTING EDGE -R Truth.

    My advice is twofold;
    1.For those claiming to b masons:Brothers I say to you the hard truth u r lied to by ur superior brethren.Most,if not all of u visitin this site are yet attain the highest degree-33rd,so u r only brain washed by the materialist 1st degrees 2 the detriment of your conscious understanding.
    Do ur homework wel 2b informed of the reknown masonic Mind control.
    2.The seekers of masonic degrees; all u need is 2 knw why u think u r not full without joining a club where even those iniatiated year b4 stil dont know that they misinformed by their high rankin “brothers”

    It is the God of Heaven who gives power to make wealth for the blessings of God makes rich and adds no sorrow. The wealth of the devil comes with much sorrow and fear. The state of having to sacrifice your own beloved close relatives for wealth. The fear of having to forfeit your eternal life for material gain. Brothers! the blood of Jesus is sufficient.

    Your opening sentence is rather peculiar, stating that Nairobi was an ‘empty’ place prior to the arrival of europeans and asians and somalis. What has this got to do with the rest of the subject (freemasonry)?In any case, the historical fact is that
    Nairobi area belonged to the Maasai, and not just to the animals. They grazed there in relative freedom, just like they do today in private estates in Nanyuki, Lukenya, and many other places. This statement of ‘no ownership’ when it comes to African land was propagated by defensive colonists like Elspeth Huxley, who even left ‘her’ land to the animals after independence. This fallacy that whites found ‘empty’ land in Africa was also part of the lore of apartheid perpetrators down in South Africa. I suppose the whole idea is to expunge the grabbers from guilt?

    To clear up some of the huge errors in this article,

    Freemasonry is NOT a religion.

    Any man of any religion with a belief in the supreme being is considered for candidacy.

    No one is ever invited to join as each man has to approach of his own free will and accord.

    the article is ignorant of a great many things and projects outright lies and falsehoods onto Freemasonry. Shame on the author for writing out of hate and ignorance.

    Nobody in their right mind would like to join freemasonry. A someone wrote above, it is no longer what it was meant to be……an association for builders of Roman catholic Cathedrals in the Roman Empire. No the fine line between Satanism and Freemasonry is very thin, especially for you my brothers in Kenya. Yes….I am a Kenyan woman. Freemasonry is a fraternity based on ranks and only a few people know the true goals and secrets of the organization. It takes years to become a grand master of the 33rd degree, closer to the top and by the time you get there, you may be involved in many mandatory beliefs that are contrary to family values and ethics……the fraternity takes priority in your lives.
    You have not seen freemasonry evil pics and architecture until you google the Denver International Airport. Who would willingly want to join an inherently evil fraternity……..for money, riches or prestige..
    Being in freemasonry is following a minority who do not reveal their “truths“ to you. This organization is a mostly White ….Scottish and now being taken over by the Illuminati and Jewish Zionists. As Africans you will be junior partners to do their errands.

    And…..BTW….Nairobi was founded by all people of Kenya, not just the Whiter ones in colour. Those Maasais should have refused all those outsiders access to their cold waters. Then those “Missionaries-cum-Freemasons“ would not have made their home in Kenya. Deceivers operate in the dark.

    I am here to save your souls. I do not believe in any religions whether they worship God or anything else. The life of a man is too short for a religious conviction to show any reward for a man. But am sure all of you are burdened with the yoke of socially constructed “rules” which dictate everything you do apart from what you type on this page.
    We all learn that if the society has not conferred power or wealth to us, we are reduced to or become merely instruments that propagate that system. There are better ways to adapt to such a social order.
    RULES:
    1. Devote all your time and energy to the accumulation of Strategic Knowledge for coping with repressive and dominating influences of the Human Society.
    2. Make money through whatever means you can in the world, and pay very little attention to what anybody imagines of you.
    3. Act like you are part of the system by going to church, being obedient because it is through doing these things that your business and domination of the rest will be attained.
    4. Have mastermind of friends in your small corner of the world who you cherish and protect with whatever might in the world.

    IN THE END:

    No government or society will dominate you!
    You will have money and knowledge to do whatever you want in the world.
    You will be a true under cover Freemason.

    Thank you all

    I am on my Journey just like the rest of you. I worship Knowledge, Power and Wealth.

    Hahahaha, u need Jesus those who are saying they want to join! May God have mercy because you clearly don’t know what you want! Who says when you join Freemason you get money? As a matter of fact you pay,,,you contribute to the brotherhood! Again, get this right, it’s said that if you want to join Freemasons you have to be believing in a ‘spiritual being’ which means it doesn’t matter even if u believe in a god!(with small g).so this clearly is a cult! My research shows that if you join a cult its even hard to leave! (Freemason means after you join You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave just like that) I hope you get the difference) Please lets keeps our hope in God, remember one of the fruits of the holy spirit is Patience, just wait upon God and never give up on Him, He knows our needs and He comes at the right time! Free mason will not redeem you from your problems it will actually put you into more trouble because one day you will have to stand before God and answer why??? He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for us and redeem us from sins! Keep you hope in God, not in man!

    To join free mason do this. become rich. some unknown guys will become very friedly and invite you for golf or something like that. Over a long time they will invite you in their homes and finally intot their lodges. and may be you will okay.
    and because free masons only give business contracts to fellow masons… you will think. wha the hell…. and you will be a mason.
    free msonary is a cult of wealth and power.
    And that is what all the strange peole in here want. they have no time fr philosophy or adacadabra of masonry. they just want free money. if devil worship is how… them… so be it!

    The person who wants to join Freemasonry must be a man (it’s a fraternity), sound in body and mind, who believes in God, is at least the minimum age required by Masonry in his state, and has a good reputation. (Incidentally, the “sound in body” requirement — which comes from the stonemasons of the Middle Ages — doesn’t mean that a physically challenged man cannot be a Mason; many are).

    Those are the only “formal” requirements. But there are others, not so formal. He should believe in helping others. He should believe there is more to life than pleasure and money. He should be willing to respect the opinions of others. And he should want to grow and develop as a human being.

    HOW DOES A MAN BECOME A FREEMASON?
    Some men are surprised that no one has ever asked them to become a Mason. They may even feel that the Masons in their town don’t think they are “good enough” to join. But it doesn’t work that way. For hundreds of years, Masons have been forbidden to ask others to join the fraternity. We can talk to friends about Freemasonry. We can tell them about what Freemasonry does. We can tell them why we enjoy it. But we can’t ask, much less pressure, anyone to join.

    There’s a good reason for that. It isn’t that we’re trying to be exclusive. But becoming a Mason is a very serious thing. Joining Freemasonry is making a permanent life commitment to live in certain ways. We’ve listed most of them above — to live with honor and integrity, to be willing to share with and care about others, to trust each other, and to place ultimate trust in God. No one should be “talked into” making such a decision.

    So, when a man decides he wants to be a Freemasonry Mason, he asks a Mason for a petition or application. He fills it out and gives it to the Mason, and that Mason takes it to the local lodge. The Master of the lodge will appoint a committee to visit with the man and his family, find out a little about him and why he wants to become a member of the Masons, tell him and his family about Freeasonry, and answer their questions. The committee reports to the lodge, and the lodge votes on the petition. If the vote is affirmative — and it usually is — the lodge will contact the man to set the date for the Entered Apprentice Degree. When the person has completed all three degrees, he is a Master Mason and a full member of the Freemasonry fraternity. contact +254726081145

    What is Freemasonry?

    Freemasonry, sometimes just called Masonry, is the word’s oldest and largest Fraternity. It aims to promote Friendship, Morality, and Brotherly Love among its members — men from every race, religion, opinion, and background — who are brought together as Brothers to develop and strengthen the bonds of friendship. There are more than 3 million members meeting in nearly every free country in the world. Freemasonry proposes to “make good men better” by teaching — with metaphors taken from geometry and architecture — about building values based on great universal truths. And of course, charity and community service is fundamental to Freemasonry and something we actively take part in.

    Where can I get more information about the Freemasons?

    The best way to get information is to talk to a Mason — either online or in person. You can ask questions of real Freemasons on our Live Forum, or you can use the “Find a Lodge” tab at the top of each page to link to the Grand Lodge website in your state. Most of these sites have Lodge Locators where you can find contact information for a Mason at a Lodge near you. That person, usually the Secretary of the Lodge, will answer your questions and provide you with additional information. If you would like, he can usually arrange a convenient time to meet, introduce you to some other members, give you a tour their building, and answer your questions. You may have some of the same questions as those below — so take a look at the rest of the FAQ’s.

    What are the requirements to become a Mason?

    Although exact membership requirements may vary slightly from country to country and state to state, generally anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a Lodge for membership:

    You are an adult male (usually 18-21, based on the individual jurisdiction) of good character and recommended by a Mason.
    You believe in a Supreme Being — no atheist can become a Mason — but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.
    You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; and, your decision to apply is based on your own “free will and accord.” No one will compel you to join.

    How do I become a Freemason? Ask!

    Because Masons have not traditionally recruited members, and do not hold public meetings, there has long been confusion about how to join the Fraternity. Does someone ask you? Do you ask?

    If you meet the requirements above, it is really quite simple:

    Most men can become a Mason by simply asking — – like Washington, Franklin, and most every Mason from the past to the present day. Each Lodge manages the membership process for its candidates. In general, men seek out a Lodge near their home or work (the “Find a Lodge” feature above will help you find the nearest Lodge), or they ask a Mason to recommend a Lodge to them. Once you’ve found a Lodge you would like to join, let them know of your interest and they will provide you with a petition.

    If you are unanimously elected by the members of a Lodge, joining the Fraternity involves going through three “degrees”: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. Every man accepted into the Fraternity goes through the degrees, thereby making each an equal to the others in the Lodge. Typically they are conferred during a Lodges’s monthly meeting over the course of three months. Once you are a Master Mason, however, you are free to join the many appendant organizations. Some of these are described on our “Masonic Family” page. You should know though, that the 3rd Degree, or Master Mason degree, is the highest degree in Freemasonry — any others are supplemental, and though they may add to your Masonic experience, the degrees are no higher, regardless of their number.

    What if I don’t know a Mason who can recommend me?

    It is quite possible you know a Mason but you just don’t realize it. If your father, uncles, or grandfathers aren’t Masons, they probably know someone who is. You might also want to ask around your workplace or school, church, or gym — anywhere that you find a group of men, you might find a Mason. Masons tend to be very proud of their association with the Fraternity, but though many love to talk about Masonry, others are uncomfortable talking about it. Some find it difficult to speak with their friends or family members because they don’t want to push Masonry on them. They might very well be looking forward to the opportunity to speak with you if you show interest, however. More importantly, they would probably be honoured to sponsor you for membership. for more information contact +254727106000

    If you don’t know anyone who is a Mason and you are a complete stranger to all of the members of the Lodge, you are going to want to take some time getting to know them. They are going to want to take some time getting to know you too. Once you are ready to Ask, a member of the Lodge will sign your petition.

    How do I find a Lodge?

    The best resource for the information you need is the Grand Lodge that presides over your jurisdiction (your state or province in North America, your country most everywhere else in the world). Use the drop down box in the “Find a Lodge” tab to find yours. Do not hesitate to contact them. They will welcome your inquiry.

    What are the time and/or financial commitments of being a Mason?

    Time: Becoming a Mason takes several months from the time you complete your petition until you have finished your degrees. Until you begin taking your degrees though, very little is asked of you. Once the degree work begins you will need to attend your Lodge’s monthly meeting. Different states may have additional requirements, such as attending a “Lodge of Instruction,” where you receive further explanation about the degree you just experienced. There is also some side work that you will need to complete that amounts to a little bit of homework. Every member of the Fraternity has gone through this process and your lodge will assign a Brother to help you.

    Once you have completed your three degrees, we expect our members to attend their lodge’s “Stated Communication,” or monthly meeting, although it is not required. Sometimes there will be a special meeting on a second night in a month, and rarely, you may find some Lodges that have stated meetings twice a month. Beyond that, there are other activities going on: community service, family and social outings, etc. that take place throughout the year. We hope our members will participate in the events that their time and interest allows. Like many things, you get out of Freemasonry what you put into it; although we also recognize and understand the need for balance between family, work or school, and other interests and commitments.

    Cost: Considering the cost to join many organizations these days, Freemasonry could be thought of as a bargain. But there are some costs involved, like initiation fees and dues.

    A one-time initiation fee is usually set by each lodge. The amount varies, again, from country to country and state to state. As an example only, in the State of Massachusetts, initiation generally runs between $100 and $250, with the average around $150. There are also annual dues, which again differ from lodge-to-lodge, that run between $50 and $150, with $75 being the average. Some lodges will charge more than these amounts and some charge less. Finally, there are Grand Lodge dues in most states. Again, as an example, in Massachusetts Grand Lodge dues are $29.

    Again, these costs are just one example. You will want to check with your local Lodge and/or your state’s Grand Lodge to get exact amounts.

    Where did Freemasonry come from?

    Part of the mystique of Freemasonry can be attributed to speculation about its roots. Over the years, historians have never been able to conclusively determine exactly when, where, how, and why Freemasonry was formed.

    The order is thought to have arisen from the English and Scottish guilds of practicing stonemasons and cathedral builders in the Middle Ages. Certain Masonic documents actually trace the sciences of geometry and masonry to the time of ancient Egypt, and some historians say that Masonry has its real roots in antiquity.

    The formation of the first Grand Lodge in London in 1717 marks the beginning of the Modern (or “Speculative”) era of Freemasonry, when members were no longer limited to actual working stonemasons. These “Accepted” Masons adopted more enlightened philosophies, and turned what was a tradesmen’s organization into a fraternity for moral edification, intellectual recitation, benevolent service, and gentlemanly socialization.

    Why is there so much interest in Masonry today?

    Over the last four centuries, Freemasonry seems to have flourished during times of great enlightenment and change. It is no coincidence that Freemasonry rose to prominence during the Age of Enlightenment in both Europe and America. That was the time when a new generation believed it could discover ways to gain personal improvement, bring order to society, and understand the whole universe. This statement is perhaps even stronger today than it was in the 18th century.

    Today, men seek out Masonry for the same reasons — to better themselves and improve society in the company of like-minded Brothers. As we learn more about how our physical world works, there’s also new interest in those things we don’t understand — especially things bound around tradition or that have a more mystical nature. Also, books like The Da Vinci Code and movies like National Treasure have brought up both new interest and renewed speculation about the nature of the Fraternity. Though these books and movies are a product more of a vivid imagination than fact, the real history of Masonry is perhaps the best story of all — one learned only by Asking — and becoming a Freemason.

    What are the benefits of becoming a Mason?

    There are numerous benefits to being a Mason, but they tend to be personal, and quite varied. The benefits can only be truly discovered by becoming a member. But we can try and give you an idea. Without question you will have the opportunity to experience camaraderie and fellowship with a group of men across the boundaries of age, race, religion, culture, and opinion. This is a fundamental concept to the Fraternity. Many find great value and knowledge in our ritual ceremony — it uses symbolism and metaphors to encourage and remind us to appreciate principles, ethics, and morality, and to live our lives accordingly. Others find great satisfaction in our charitable efforts, community service, and the support we provide our members and their families. Finally, for those who take on leadership positions within their lodge, they have the chance to develop or further very practical management skills.

    Can Freemasonry actually prepare me for greatness?

    No organization can guarantee to make anyone great — the capacity and motivation must come from the individual. But the powerful values and important truths that are taught as part of the Masonic tradition have proven to inspire, challenge, and develop leadership in men throughout the centuries. Benjamin Franklin may have said it best, describing the Fraternity as a place to “prepare himself.”

    Today, men are preparing themselves for greatness in Lodges the world over. If you think there’s greatness in you, we invite your interest.

    Why aren’t there any famous women who are Masons?

    Freemasonry is, by definition, a fraternity that aims to promote Brotherly Love and Friendship among its members. It is a worldwide organization that draws together men and helps cultivate and promote better relationships and the bonds of friendships between them. Freemasonry doesn’t focus on Friendship and Brotherly Love because it believes that only relations between men are important, or that relations between men and women are unimportant, but because hope for peace and harmony in the world is improved when men can put aside their differences and come together as friends.

    Masons also appreciate and value relations with women. We sponsor and participate in Masonic related organizations that include women and/or girls, such as the Order of Eastern Star, the Order of Rainbow for Girls, and Job’s Daughters.

    Is Masonry a Religion?

    Masonry is not a religion. But because it is open to all men who believe in a Supreme Being, it is one of the few platforms where men of all faiths — Christians (including Catholics), Jews, Muslims, and men of every other faith, can come together. Religion, though, is not discussed at Masonic meetings. Although Lodges open and close with a prayer and Masonry teaches morality, it is not a church or a religion. Masonry does not have a theology or a dogma, it does not offer sacraments, and it does not offer the promise of salvation.

    Is Freemasonry a charity?

    No. Masonic principles teach the value of relief (charity), and Freemasons give more than $2 million A DAY to charitable causes, along with countless man hours. More than 70% of these donations support the general public. Among their works are the Shriners Hospitals for Children, with 22 sites throughout North America that include world renowned burn centers and orthopedic facilities; almost 225 Learning Centers that help children with dyslexia, speech and hearing disorders; the Masonic Youth Child Identification Program (MYCHIP), and the Masonic Angel Foundation, providing modest assistance to children and adults in local communities who do not fit the criteria for usual social-services. Throughout America and world, there are numerous other worthy causes and groups that local Lodges contribute to and help in their communities.

    Is Masonry a secret society?

    No. It is sometimes said that Freemasonry is a “Society with secrets, not a secret society.” In point of fact, however, any purported Masonic “secrets” were made public several centuries ago in London newspapers, and today can be found in the Library of Congress, on the Internet, and in many books on the subject. Benjamin Franklin once said, “The great secret of Freemasonry is that there is no secret at all.” But some say the one great secret of Freemasonry… is finding out who YOU really are.

    What about secret handshakes, ritual, and passwords?

    Freemasonry, often called the “Craft” by its members, employs metaphors of architecture. Following the practice of the ancient stonemason guilds, Freemasons use special handshakes, words, and symbols to not only to identify each other, but to help, as William Preston said in 1772, “imprint upon the memory wise and serious truths.”

    Although every Freemason takes an obligation — and vows to keep the secrets of Masonry — it doesn’t matter to him that you can find the secrets in print; what matters is that he keeps his promise. And the secrets he is protecting are only used to help Masons become better men; and there’s certainly no secret surrounding what it takes to be good and true.

    What is Masonic “ritual?”

    The nature of Masonic ritual is both complex and beautiful. “Ritual” is a formal ceremony of initiation which recites certain tenets and truths that have been passed down for generations — mostly from mouth to ear. This “Ritual” takes the form of lectures and theater in the Lodge, and is used to teach new Masons the value of true friendship, the benefits of knowledge, and the necessity of helping those in need.

    It speaks to the power and impact our ritual has on men’s hearts and minds because it has stood the test of time for more than 300 years. Although our world has changed dramatically during that time, our ritual is virtually the same.

    Not everyone will want to learn the ancient ritual — as it takes great time and study — but those Masons who chose to learn it are rewarded with the satisfaction of upholding a great tradition and helping their fellow brothers further their Masonic understanding.

    Finally…

    Just because the secrets have been made public doesn’t mean everyone knows the mystery of Masonry. In fact, much of the appeal of the Craft is that the great truths revealed in Masonic ritual can take years to understand. Like the building of any great structure, the powerful metaphors and symbols of Masonry build character –

    What is Freemasonry?

    Freemasonry, sometimes just called Masonry, is the word’s oldest and largest Fraternity. It aims to promote Friendship, Morality, and Brotherly Love among its members — men from every race, religion, opinion, and background — who are brought together as Brothers to develop and strengthen the bonds of friendship. There are more than 3 million members meeting in nearly every free country in the world. Freemasonry proposes to “make good men better” by teaching — with metaphors taken from geometry and architecture — about building values based on great universal truths. And of course, charity and community service is fundamental to Freemasonry and something we actively take part in.

    Where can I get more information about the Freemasons?

    The best way to get information is to talk to a Mason — either online or in person. You can ask questions of real Freemasons on our Live Forum, or you can use the “Find a Lodge” tab at the top of each page to link to the Grand Lodge website in your state. Most of these sites have Lodge Locators where you can find contact information for a Mason at a Lodge near you. That person, usually the Secretary of the Lodge, will answer your questions and provide you with additional information. If you would like, he can usually arrange a convenient time to meet, introduce you to some other members, give you a tour their building, and answer your questions. You may have some of the same questions as those below — so take a look at the rest of the FAQ’s.

    What are the requirements to become a Mason?

    Although exact membership requirements may vary slightly from country to country and state to state, generally anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a Lodge for membership:

    You are an adult male (usually 18-21, based on the individual jurisdiction) of good character and recommended by a Mason.
    You believe in a Supreme Being — no atheist can become a Mason — but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.
    You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; and, your decision to apply is based on your own “free will and accord.” No one will compel you to join.

    How do I become a Freemason? Ask!

    Because Masons have not traditionally recruited members, and do not hold public meetings, there has long been confusion about how to join the Fraternity. Does someone ask you? Do you ask?

    If you meet the requirements above, it is really quite simple:

    Most men can become a Mason by simply asking — – like Washington, Franklin, and most every Mason from the past to the present day. Each Lodge manages the membership process for its candidates. In general, men seek out a Lodge near their home or work (the “Find a Lodge” feature above will help you find the nearest Lodge), or they ask a Mason to recommend a Lodge to them. Once you’ve found a Lodge you would like to join, let them know of your interest and they will provide you with a petition.

    If you are unanimously elected by the members of a Lodge, joining the Fraternity involves going through three “degrees”: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. Every man accepted into the Fraternity goes through the degrees, thereby making each an equal to the others in the Lodge. Typically they are conferred during a Lodges’s monthly meeting over the course of three months. Once you are a Master Mason, however, you are free to join the many appendant organizations. Some of these are described on our “Masonic Family” page. You should know though, that the 3rd Degree, or Master Mason degree, is the highest degree in Freemasonry — any others are supplemental, and though they may add to your Masonic experience, the degrees are no higher, regardless of their number.

    What if I don’t know a Mason who can recommend me?

    It is quite possible you know a Mason but you just don’t realize it. If your father, uncles, or grandfathers aren’t Masons, they probably know someone who is. You might also want to ask around your workplace or school, church, or gym — anywhere that you find a group of men, you might find a Mason. Masons tend to be very proud of their association with the Fraternity, but though many love to talk about Masonry, others are uncomfortable talking about it. Some find it difficult to speak with their friends or family members because they don’t want to push Masonry on them. They might very well be looking forward to the opportunity to speak with you if you show interest, however. More importantly, they would probably be honored to sponsor you for membership.

    If you don’t know anyone who is a Mason and you are a complete stranger to all of the members of the Lodge, you are going to want to take some time getting to know them. They are going to want to take some time getting to know you too. Once you are ready to Ask, a member of the Lodge will sign your petition.

    How do I find a Lodge?

    The best resource for the information you need is the Grand Lodge that presides over your jurisdiction (your state or province in North America, your country most everywhere else in the world). Use the drop down box in the “Find a Lodge” tab to find yours. Do not hesitate to contact them. They will welcome your inquiry.

    What are the time and/or financial commitments of being a Mason?

    Time: Becoming a Mason takes several months from the time you complete your petition until you have finished your degrees. Until you begin taking your degrees though, very little is asked of you. Once the degree work begins you will need to attend your Lodge’s monthly meeting. Different states may have additional requirements, such as attending a “Lodge of Instruction,” where you receive further explanation about the degree you just experienced. There is also some side work that you will need to complete that amounts to a little bit of homework. Every member of the Fraternity has gone through this process and your lodge will assign a Brother to help you.

    Once you have completed your three degrees, we expect our members to attend their lodge’s “Stated Communication,” or monthly meeting, although it is not required. Sometimes there will be a special meeting on a second night in a month, and rarely, you may find some Lodges that have stated meetings twice a month. Beyond that, there are other activities going on: community service, family and social outings, etc. that take place throughout the year. We hope our members will participate in the events that their time and interest allows. Like many things, you get out of Freemasonry what you put into it; although we also recognize and understand the need for balance between family, work or school, and other interests and commitments.

    Cost: Considering the cost to join many organizations these days, Freemasonry could be thought of as a bargain. But there are some costs involved, like initiation fees and dues.

    A one-time initiation fee is usually set by each lodge. The amount varies, again, from country to country and state to state. As an example only, in the State of Massachusetts, initiation generally runs between $100 and $250, with the average around $150. There are also annual dues, which again differ from lodge-to-lodge, that run between $50 and $150, with $75 being the average. Some lodges will charge more than these amounts and some charge less. Finally, there are Grand Lodge dues in most states. Again, as an example, in Massachusetts Grand Lodge dues are $29.

    Again, these costs are just one example. You will want to check with your local Lodge and/or your state’s Grand Lodge to get exact amounts.

    Where did Freemasonry come from?

    Part of the mystique of Freemasonry can be attributed to speculation about its roots. Over the years, historians have never been able to conclusively determine exactly when, where, how, and why Freemasonry was formed.

    The order is thought to have arisen from the English and Scottish guilds of practicing stonemasons and cathedral builders in the Middle Ages. Certain Masonic documents actually trace the sciences of geometry and masonry to the time of ancient Egypt, and some historians say that Masonry has its real roots in antiquity.

    The formation of the first Grand Lodge in London in 1717 marks the beginning of the Modern (or “Speculative”) era of Freemasonry, when members were no longer limited to actual working stonemasons. These “Accepted” Masons adopted more enlightened philosophies, and turned what was a tradesmen’s organization into a fraternity for moral edification, intellectual recitation, benevolent service, and gentlemanly socialization.

    Why is there so much interest in Masonry today?

    Over the last four centuries, Freemasonry seems to have flourished during times of great enlightenment and change. It is no coincidence that Freemasonry rose to prominence during the Age of Enlightenment in both Europe and America. That was the time when a new generation believed it could discover ways to gain personal improvement, bring order to society, and understand the whole universe. This statement is perhaps even stronger today than it was in the 18th century.

    Today, men seek out Masonry for the same reasons — to better themselves and improve society in the company of like-minded Brothers. As we learn more about how our physical world works, there’s also new interest in those things we don’t understand — especially things bound around tradition or that have a more mystical nature. Also, books like The Da Vinci Code and movies like National Treasure have brought up both new interest and renewed speculation about the nature of the Fraternity. Though these books and movies are a product more of a vivid imagination than fact, the real history of Masonry is perhaps the best story of all — one learned only by Asking — and becoming a Freemason.

    What are the benefits of becoming a Mason?

    There are numerous benefits to being a Mason, but they tend to be personal, and quite varied. The benefits can only be truly discovered by becoming a member. But we can try and give you an idea. Without question you will have the opportunity to experience camaraderie and fellowship with a group of men across the boundaries of age, race, religion, culture, and opinion. This is a fundamental concept to the Fraternity. Many find great value and knowledge in our ritual ceremony — it uses symbolism and metaphors to encourage and remind us to appreciate principles, ethics, and morality, and to live our lives accordingly. Others find great satisfaction in our charitable efforts, community service, and the support we provide our members and their families. Finally, for those who take on leadership positions within their lodge, they have the chance to develop or further very practical management skills.

    Can Freemasonry actually prepare me for greatness?

    No organization can guarantee to make anyone great — the capacity and motivation must come from the individual. But the powerful values and important truths that are taught as part of the Masonic tradition have proven to inspire, challenge, and develop leadership in men throughout the centuries. Benjamin Franklin may have said it best, describing the Fraternity as a place to “prepare himself.”

    FREEMASONRY – JUST WHO ARE THE FREEMASONS?

    That’s not a surprising question. Even though Freemasons are members of the largest and oldest fraternity in the world, MASONS or FREEMASONRY, and even though almost everyone has a father or grandfather or uncle who was a Mason, many people aren’t quite certain just who Masons are or what freemasonry is about.

    The answer is simple. Freemasons are members of a fraternity known as Freemasonry or Masonry. A fraternity is a group of men (just as a sorority is a group of women) who join together because:

    There are things they want to do in the world.
    There are things they want to do “inside their own minds.”
    They enjoy being together with men they like and respect.

    (we’ll look at some of these things later)

    FREEMASONRY EXPLAINED – WHAT IS IT?
    No one knows just how old freemasonry is because the actual origins have been lost in time. Probably, it arose from the guilds of stone masons who built the castles and cathedrals of the Middle Ages. Possibly, they were influenced by the Knights Templar, a group of Christian warrior monks formed in 1118 to help protect pilgrims making trips to the Holy Land.

    In 1717, Freemasonry members created a formal organization in England when the first Grand Lodge was formed. A Grand Lodge is the administrative body in charge of Freemasonry in some geographical area. In the United States, there is a Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in each state and the District of Columbia. In Canada, there is a Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in each province. Local organizations of Freemasony are called lodges. There are freemasonry lodges in most towns, and large cities usually have several. There are about 13,200 lodges in the United States.

    WH0 ARE THE MASONS?
    Freemasons are a unique institution that has been a major part of community life in America for over two hundred and fifty (250) years. It is America’s largest and oldest fraternity, and one that continues to be an important part of many men’s personal lives and growth.

    The fraternity of masons are an organization of men bound together with a philosophy of moral standards, mutual understanding and brotherhood in which all men are on a level and equal.

    WHAT ARE THE MASONS?
    Masons are men who have decided they like to feel good about themselves and others. They care about the future as well as the past, and do what they can, both alone and with others, to make the future good for everyone.

    Many men over many generations have answered the question, “What are the Masons?” One of the most eloquent was written by the Reverend Joseph Fort Newton, an internationally honored minister of the first half of the 20th Century and Grand Chaplain, Grand Lodge of Iowa, 1911-1913.

    IS FREEMASONRY A RELIGION?
    Although Freemasonry is not a religion, its emphasis on the Fatherhood of God ensures that the Brotherhood of Man follows naturally. This coupled with the obligation to abide by the Golden Rule, particularly with a fellow Mason, makes for one of the strongest bonds of society. When you meet other Masons, the odds are very high indeed, that they will treat you as you would like to be treated.

    The goal of this site is to serve as a forum for communication with the membership of the Michigan Masons in the Grand Lodge of Michigan, as well as an information resource for masons and non masons alike in Michigan and around the world.

    WHEN ARE MEN CONSIDERED MASONS?
    Freemasons and virtue:
    When they can look out over the rivers, the hills, and the far horizon with a profound sense of their own littleness in the vast scheme of things, and yet have faith, hope, and courage — which is the root of every virtue.

    Masons and nobility:
    When they know that down in their heart every man is as noble, as vile, as divine, as diabolic, and as lonely as himself, and seeks to know, to forgive, and to love their fellowman.

    Freemasons and sympathy:
    When they know how to sympathize with men in their sorrows, yea, even in their sins — knowing that each man fights a hard fight against many odds.

    Fraternal friendship:
    When they have learned how to make friends and to keep them, and above all how to keep friends with themselves.

    Masons and life:
    When they love flowers, can hunt birds without a gun, and feels the thrill of an old forgotten joy when he hears the laugh of a little child.

    Happiness:
    When they can be happy and high-minded amid the meaner drudgeries of life.

    Masons and rememberence:
    When star-crowned trees and the glint of sunlight on flowing waters subdue themselves like the thought of one much loved and long dead.

    Freemasons and aiding a distressed voice:
    When no voice of distress reaches their ears in vain, and no hand seeks their aid without response.

    Faith:
    When they find good in every faith that helps any man to lay hold of divine things and sees majestic meanings in life, whatever the name of that faith may be.

    Masons and fellow man:
    When they can look into a wayside puddle and see something beyond mud, and into the face of the most forlorn fellow mortal and see something beyond sin.

    Hope:
    When they know how to pray, how to love, how to hope.

    Masons and their God:
    When they have kept faith with themselves, with their fellowman, and with their God; in their hand a sword for evil, in their heart a bit of a song — glad to live, but not afraid to die! – Masons.

    Mason and Secrets:
    Such men have found the only real secret of Masonry, and the one which it is trying to give to all the world. These are the Masons.

    FROM BRITAIN TO AMERICA, HOW?
    In a time when travel was by horseback and sailing ship, Masonry spread with amazing speed. By 1731, when Benjamin Franklin joined the fraternity, there were already several lodges in the Colonies, and Freemasonry spread rapidly as America expanded west. In addition to Franklin, many of the Founding Fathers — men such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Joseph Warren, and John Hancock — were Masons. Masons and Freemasonry played an important part in the Revolutionary War and an even more important part in the Constitutional Convention and the debates surrounding the ratification of the Bill of Rights. Many of those debates were held in Masonic lodges.

    WHAT IS A LODGE?
    The word “lodge” means both a group of Freemasonry members meeting in some place and the room or building in which they meet. Freemasonry or Masonic buildings are also sometimes called “temples” because much of the symbolism Freemasonry uses to teach its lessons comes from the building of King Solomon’s Temple in the Holy Land. The term “lodge” itself comes from the structures which the stonemasons built against the sides of the cathedrals during construction. In winter, when building had to stop, they lived in these lodges and worked at carving stone.

    If you’ve ever watched C-SPAN’s coverage of the House of Commons in London, you’ll notice that the layout is about the same. Since Freemasonry came to America from England, we still use the English floorplan and English titles for the officers. The Worshipful Master of the Lodge sits in the East. “Worshipful” is an English term of respect which means the same thing as “Honorable.” He is called the Master of the lodge for the same reason that the leader of an orchestra is called the “Concert Master.” It’s simply an older term for “Leader.” In other organizations, he would be called “President.” The Senior and Junior Wardens are the First and Second Vice-Presidents. The Deacons are messengers, and the Stewards have charge of refreshments.

    Every lodge has an altar holding a “Volume of the Sacred Law.” In the United States and Canada, that is almost always a Bible.

    SO IS FREEMASONRY EDUCATION?
    Yes. In a very real sense, education is at the center of Freemasonry. We have stressed its importance for a very long time. Back in the Middle Ages, schools were held in the lodges of stonemasons. You have to know a lot to build a cathedral — geometry, and structural engineering, and mathematics, just for a start. And that education was not very widely available. All the formal schools and colleges trained people for careers in the church, or in law or medicine. And you had to be a member of the social upper classes to go to those schools. Stonemasons did not come from the aristocracy. And so the lodges had to teach the necessary skills and information. Freemasonry dedication to education started there.

    It has continued. Freemasons started some of the first public schools in both Europe and America. We supported legislation to make education universal. In the 1800s Masons as a group lobbied for the establishment of state-supported education and federal land-grant colleges. Today we give millions of dollars in scholarships each year. We encourage our members to give volunteer time to their local schools, buy classroom supplies for teachers, help with literacy programs, and do everything they can to help assure that each person, adult or child, has the best educational opportunities possible.

    And Freemasonry supports continuing education and intellectual growth for its members, insisting that learning more about many things is important for anyone who wants to keep mentally alert and young.

    Freemasonry teaches some important principles. There’s nothing very surprising in the list. Freemasonry teaches that:

    Since God is the Creator, all men and women are the children of God. Because of that, all men and women are brothers and sisters, entitled to dignity, respect for their opinions, and consideration of their feelings.

    Each person must take responsibility for his/her own life and actions. Neither wealth nor poverty, education nor ignorance, health nor sickness excuses any person from doing the best he or she can do or being the best person possible under the circumstances.

    No one has the right to tell another person what he or she must think or believe. Each man and woman has an absolute right to intellectual, spiritual, economic, and political freedom. This is a right given by God, not by man. All tyranny, in every form, is illegitimate.

    Each person must learn and practice self-control. Each person must make sure his spiritual nature triumphs over his animal nature. Another way to say the same thing is that even when we are tempted to anger, we must not be violent. Even when we are tempted to selfishness, we must be charitable. Even when we want to “write someone off,” we must remember that he or she is a human and entitled to our respect. Even when we want to give up, we must go on. Even when we are hated, we must return love, or, at a minimum, we must not hate back. It isn’t easy!

    Faith must be in the center of our lives. We find that faith in our houses of worship, not in Freemasonry, but Freemasonry constantly teaches that a person’s faith, whatever it may be, is central to a good life.

    Each person has a responsibly to be a good citizen, obeying the law. That doesn’t mean we can’t try to change things, but change must take place in legal ways.

    It is important to work to make this world better for all who live in it. Freemasonry teaches the importance of doing good, not because it assures a person’s entrance into heaven — that’s a question for a religion, not a fraternity — but because we have a duty to all other men and women to make their lives as fulfilling as they can be.

    Honor and integrity are essential to life. Life without honor and integrity is without meaning.

    WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE MASONS?
    The person who wants to join Freemasonry must be a man (it’s a fraternity), sound in body and mind, who believes in God, is at least the minimum age required by Masonry in his state, and has a good reputation. (Incidentally, the “sound in body” requirement — which comes from the stonemasons of the Middle Ages — doesn’t mean that a physically challenged man cannot be a Mason; many are).

    Those are the only “formal” requirements. But there are others, not so formal. He should believe in helping others. He should believe there is more to life than pleasure and money. He should be willing to respect the opinions of others. And he should want to grow and develop as a human being.

    HOW DOES A MAN BECOME A FREEMASON?
    Some men are surprised that no one has ever asked them to become a Mason. They may even feel that the Masons in their town don’t think they are “good enough” to join. But it doesn’t work that way. For hundreds of years, Masons have been forbidden to ask others to join the fraternity. We can talk to friends about Freemasonry. We can tell them about what Freemasonry does. We can tell them why we enjoy it. But we can’t ask, much less pressure, anyone to join.

    There’s a good reason for that. It isn’t that we’re trying to be exclusive. But becoming a Mason is a very serious thing. Joining Freemasonry is making a permanent life commitment to live in certain ways. We’ve listed most of them above — to live with honor and integrity, to be willing to share with and care about others, to trust each other, and to place ultimate trust in God. No one should be “talked into” making such a decision.

    So, when a man decides he wants to be a Freemasonry Mason, he asks a Mason for a petition or application. He fills it out and gives it to the Mason, and that Mason takes it to the local lodge. The Master of the lodge will appoint a committee to visit with the man and his family, find out a little about him and why he wants to become a member of the Masons, tell him and his family about Freeasonry, and answer their questions. The committee reports to the lodge, and the lodge votes on the petition. If the vote is affirmative — and it usually is — the lodge will contact the man to set the date for the Entered Apprentice Degree. When the person has completed all three degrees, he is a Master Mason and a full member of the Freemasonry fraternity.

      Masons are men who have decided they like to feel good about themselves and others. They care about the future as well as the past, and do what they can, both alone and with others, to make the future good for everyone.

      Many men over many generations have answered the question, “What are the Masons?” One of the most eloquent was written by the Reverend Joseph Fort Newton, an internationally honored minister of the first half of the 20th Century and Grand Chaplain, Grand Lodge of Iowa, 1911-1913.

      IS FREEMASONRY A RELIGION?
      Although Freemasonry is not a religion, its emphasis on the Fatherhood of God ensures that the Brotherhood of Man follows naturally. This coupled with the obligation to abide by the Golden Rule, particularly with a fellow Mason, makes for one of the strongest bonds of society. When you meet other Masons, the odds are very high indeed, that they will treat you as you would like to be treated.

      The goal of this site is to serve as a forum for communication with the membership of the Michigan Masons in the Grand Lodge of Michigan, as well as an information resource for masons and non masons alike in Michigan and around the world.

      WHEN ARE MEN CONSIDERED MASONS?
      Freemasons and virtue:
      When they can look out over the rivers, the hills, and the far horizon with a profound sense of their own littleness in the vast scheme of things, and yet have faith, hope, and courage — which is the root of every virtue.

      Masons and nobility: When they know that down in their heart every man is as noble, as vile, as divine, as diabolic, and as lonely as himself, and seeks to know, to forgive, and to love their fellowman.

      Freemasons and sympathy:
      When they know how to sympathize with men in their sorrows, yea, even in their sins — knowing that each man fights a hard fight against many odds.

      Fraternal friendship:
      When they have learned how to make friends and to keep them, and above all how to keep friends with themselves.

      Masons and life:
      When they love flowers, can hunt birds without a gun, and feels the thrill of an old forgotten joy when he hears the laugh of a little child.

      Happiness:
      When they can be happy and high-minded amid the meaner drudgeries of life.

      Masons and rememberence:
      When star-crowned trees and the glint of sunlight on flowing waters subdue themselves like the thought of one much loved and long dead.

      Freemasons and aiding a distressed voice:
      When no voice of distress reaches their ears in vain, and no hand seeks their aid without response.

      Faith:
      When they find good in every faith that helps any man to lay hold of divine things and sees majestic meanings in life, whatever the name of that faith may be.

      Masons and fellow man:
      When they can look into a wayside puddle and see something beyond mud, and into the face of the most forlorn fellow mortal and see something beyond sin.

      Hope:
      When they know how to pray, how to love, how to hope.

      Masons and their God:
      When they have kept faith with themselves, with their fellowman, and with their God; in their hand a sword for evil, in their heart a bit of a song — glad to live, but not afraid to die! – Masons.

      Mason and Secrets:
      Such men have found the only real secret of Masonry, and the one which it is trying to give to all the world. These are the Masons.
      WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE MASONS?
      The person who wants to join Freemasonry must be a man (it’s a fraternity), sound in body and mind, who believes in God, is at least the minimum age required by Masonry in his state, and has a good reputation. (Incidentally, the “sound in body” requirement — which comes from the stonemasons of the Middle Ages — doesn’t mean that a physically challenged man cannot be a Mason; many are).

      Those are the only “formal” requirements. But there are others, not so formal. He should believe in helping others. He should believe there is more to life than pleasure and money. He should be willing to respect the opinions of others. And he should want to grow and develop as a human being.

    The Truth About Freemasons in Kenya

    The truth shall set you free
    One of the earliest pieces on DR was a rebuttal to Zuqka’s speculative nonsensical article that claimed that several of our favorite artists were Masons; more specifically, that Jay-z was part of some secret society. Hogwash really.

    But what isn’t hogwash is how Kenyans feel about such groups of people. We have been polarized to react acidicly negatively to Freemasons – or as many call them, Devil Worshippers & Satanists – because they supposedly drink blood drained from virgin children’s necks and pray in dark rooms with no windows while having orgies with abducted prostitutes. But how much of this stigma is really true? Here are 10 things you need to know about Freemasons before you pass judgment.

    1. Freemasonry is NOT a religion
    Mason Bible
    Possibly the most common misconception. There’s no Mason God or anything weird like that. It’s a Fraternal Organization – much like Academic Fraternities -that began some 400 years ago. You are however required to have a religion before joining so you’ll find plenty of Christian Masons, Muslim Masons, Hindu Masons…etc.

    2. Freemasonry is NOT Satanism
    Baphomet Goat of Mendes
    In fact, Satanism is one of the few religions that isn’t exactly allowed in freemasonry. Freemasons are required to believe in a “Supreme Being” and to the best of my knowledge, Satan doesn’t quite qualify as being Supreme enough. Besides, most of their practices go against the code of the masons.

    3. Freemasons are NOT idolatrous

    idolatrying

    They don’t worship the symbols or their Grand Master; they don’t sacrifice chickens to pagan gods or …whatever crazy thing they get flack for.

    4. Freemasonry is NOT a cult

    John Dee Table

    This should really have been #2. Dear Kenyans, stop calling everything occult. Occultism is, simply stated, some mystical search for deeper truth in life; magic, alchemy, witchcraft & wizardry and all this. It normally involves a lot of secrecy and very little reasoning(because you see, reasoning is counter-occult; “you can’t see the deeper truth with these eyes”…).

    5. Freemasonry is NOT a secret society

    They have a headquarters with an address and a list of members. They are in your Yellow Pages and online. Seriously. What kind of secret is that?

    6. Freemasonry is NOT exclusive or inclusive.

    Freemason ring

    Nobody forces you to be a freemason and no one will stop you. Anybody can walk in there and apply to join the fraternity. In fact, one of the requirements is that you came there of free will. If your references check out, you take the oath and you’re in. Just like any other fraternity.

    7. Freemasons are NOT malevolent

    idol worship

    There’s this theory that most masons are thugs and crooks of the highest order. One of the requirements of joining the “fraternity” is that you are a morally upright person. You even need character references from reputable people saying you are a stand-up guy before they let you join. I fail to see how most of our politicians would qualify.

    8. Freemasons are NOT special;

    nwo

    They don’t control your world. They aren’t even international. Each region of Freemasons operates independently from the others. There are societies out there that are international and a lot more powerful and scary; Freemasons are not one of them. for more information +254727106000 or email me on palandre.george36@gmail.com

    THE BENEFITS of MASONIC MEMBERSHIP

    With pleasure we present this Short Talk Bulletin prepared by the noted Masonic scholar and author, Brother Alphonse Cerza. He brings into perspective a variety of the answers we can all use in answering the title question .

    Occasionally a member is asked by a non-Mason “What benefits do you receive from your Masonic membership?” Most members when asked this question for the first time have difficulty knowing what to say. This is especially true if the member has not given the matter any thought or he has had no experience explaining things to others. The situation can be further complicated for the member who erroneously believes that Freemasonry is a “secret” society and that the answer he may give might be disclosing a Masonic “secret.” We also must recognize that Freemasonry has so many facets and attractions that each member has sought membership in the Craft for a reason personal to himself. Each has entered the lodge in search of something that is prob-ably different than another member.

    It is hoped that he has found in Freemasonry that which he was seeking. This facet or attraction is intimately connected with the specific benefit which the member logically would ex-plain in his answer to the question if he is not prepared to answer the question as a result of careful thought and consideration of all the possible benefits that have come to him as a result of his becoming a Mason. Every member should be aware of the possibility that such a question might be asked of him and he should be prepared to answer it fairly, truthfully, and completely. Here are some observations on the matter that will help you answer the question under consideration.

    A benefit may be considered as anything which is helpful, profitable, favorable, and advantageous to a person. A benefit may take many forms such as improving a person in some way, promoting his happiness, raising his status socially, increasing his personal contacts with others, or assisting him in any number of other ways. In a general way the benefits of Masonic membership are both tangible and intangible.

    Here are a few of the tangible benefits that come to mind at once. Many Grand Lodges maintain a Home for the needy members in their Golden Years. Some maintain a Home for the children of deceased members. It is a comfortable feeling to know that if you have minor children, and with an untimely death that your children will be taken care of by the Craft; and if you are unable to take care of yourself in your declining years, it is a calming feeling to know that there will be help available for you and your wife. In some areas the Craft maintains a hospital for the public and takes care of the needy members of the Craft as well when they require medical attention.

    Most lodges have sick visitation committees. When a report is received of a sick member, steps are taken to have someone visit him. These visits are good for the person who is sick as well as for the one who is doing the visiting. If you are sick in bed or home bound, it is a great feeling to know that out there is someone who cares enough to take time to visit you. All members are taught to be charitable in word and deed. The word “charity” is used in the Craft in its broadest sense. When visiting a sick Brother you are urged to listen to his troubles, sympathize with him, and to help him unburden himself. Often the faithful breast and the listen-ing ear can do more good than all the medicine in the world to improve one’s spirits.

    Many lodges have Low Twelve Clubs in which members make a nominal payment each time a member passes away. The money is de-posited in a bank account and when word is received that a member has died, the treasurer immediately presents the family with a check for the prescribed amount so that it may be used to meet expenses at once.

    Some lodges and some Grand Lodges con-duct a blood bank program. Members of the lodges volunteer to give blood to the bank. When a member or someone in his family are in need of blood to regain their health, the blood in the bank is made available to them without cost .

    If a Mason finds himself stranded in a strange place and is in need of help, there is al-ways available help not too far away. In some areas there are Masonic Boards of Relief to help in such cases. In other places the needy Mason can contact the local lodge which will render whatever assistance is necessary.

    Many illustrations can be given of how Masonic charity has been dispensed to members and their families. Here are a few of them. A widow of a deceased member was in need of her house being painted and she called the secretary of the lodge for a recommendation of a painter who could do the job at a reasonable price. Knowing the tight financial condition of the caller, the secretary informed the Worshipful Master and a meeting was called at which the officers met to discuss the matter. As a result, several members donated the necessary material to paint the house for the widow. In Canada several years ago a widow called the Masonic Board of Relief and requested help in an un-usual situation. A family of skunks had settled in the crawl space under her house and she needed help to remove the new tenants. A number of lodge members were enlisted to bring this about.

    (Many fascinating examples of Masonic

    Charity can be found in prior Short Talk Bulletins. Indexes are available at no charge.)

    Clearly, the intangible benefits predominate over the tangible ones. In some instances the benefits defy classification because they are a blend of both general benefits. The first benefit received by a candidate for the degrees is the contacts he makes with those that recommend him and those who investigate his petition. The next benefit is the receiving of the three degrees and the friendships that develop with the poster and others connected with his securing the needed proficiency to advance from one degree to the other. The ceremony of receiving the degrees together with the lectures is a new experience and hopefully the candidate has come to the meetings in the spirit of anticipating an important event with a receptive heart and mind. The impressive presentation is bound to have an important effect on him. He is bound to observe that he is the center of attraction, that the degree is conferred on him alone, and that we are concentrating our attention on him. This should convince him that we are devoted to the importance of each person who joins us in our work.

    There are a number of intangible benefits that do not readily meet the eye, but they do exist in ample measure. Freemasonry is a selective organization and not everyone is accepted as a member. The mere fact that an application for membership has been filed indicates a desire to belong to something and to be associated with something worthwhile. He may not recognize this intangible element but he is seeking to “belong” to a worthwhile organization and to make his contribution to the work of the group. Let us recognize that there is nothing more destructive of one’s happiness than the feeling of being alone, of not being a part of anything worthwhile. When he becomes a member he acquires a large number of new Brothers bound by a solemn obligation to do everything possible to make this a better world in which to live. I know of one case where an only child joined a Masonic lodge and after he became a member was filled with joy for he was no longer an only child but had acquired Brothers that he did not have before.

    Joining the Craft immediately gives the new member a new identity. He becomes a member of a world-wide fraternity dedicated to the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. Non-members are aware of the many fine charitable projects supported by Masons, and when a member is identified as such it is bound to reflect favorably in the eyes of the non-member. There is also the matter of securing identity with other Masons and creating warm friendships. Each member knows that in common with all other members he has taken a solemn obligation to be a good man and true. As a result, when meeting another Mason there is immediately established a close sense of friendship resulting from the unexpressed knowledge that they both have a common philosophy of life which makes them better men and that they can help and trust one another. This matter of identity is indicated by the many Masons who wear a Masonic pin and thereby tell the world of their identity with the Craft.

    The member who becomes active in the work of the Craft acquires some degree of leadership and eventually develops a feeling of “importance” because he is serving the organization in worthwhile activities. Every person, in order to be happy, must feel that he is important to his family, his employer, his community, or some other group. The more experiences exist in one’s life the happier that person is bound to be. Sometimes we complain about the many persons who are introduced at Masonic meetings, but this is one way that we show our appreciation for work done and making the worker feel important because of services rendered.

    Even the inactive member who pays his dues and attends Masonic functions occasionally will get a glow of satisfaction as he hears of the many activities being supported financially and otherwise by the Craft.

    One of the most valuable benefits that is secured by being a Freemason is the unlimited opportunity to make deep and abiding friend-ships. Working with other good men on worthy projects has a way of developing into close friendly relations with a feeling of mutual respect for one another. You know that in case of need you can speak safely in confidence with a brother Mason. In case you are dejected you know that you have someone to speak with and unburden yourself as you pour your troubles into a sympathetic ear. I know of two cases of bachelors who lived in a single room each in separate boarding houses. Each night they went to a different lodge meeting with regularity so that over a period of time they virtually adopted certain lodges as their own. The friendships that they developed and the visiting they were able to do each night enriched their lives immensely and saved them from the boredom of sitting in a single room looking at four walls night after night.

    Active members receive the greatest benefit from their connection with Freemasonry. Opportunity is afforded to develop one’s memory, working with others, learning to organize projects, develop speaking ability by making re-ports and presenting lectures, and learning how to work with others. There are many members who have no opportunity for an extensive for-mal education to thus secure considerable educational training.

    The intangible benefit that is often over-looked is that the Craft teaches its members a philosophy of life. The importance of this benefit should not be overlooked because every person needs a philosophy of life to guide him or her in the journey through life. In past years a great deal of the turmoil with our youth was the confusion relative to an absence of a philosophy of life as they floundered around seeking something but not knowing what it was. Some-times these young folks spoke of high ideals but really had nothing that would guide them into meaningful activities to make these ideals a reality. If we could only reach the minds of these young people they and the Craft could profit greatly.

    Another intangible benefit is the opportunity which the Craft offers its members to be-come associated with worthy projects that help make this a better world in which to live. These consist primarily of the many charitable projects that are supported by the lodges, the Grand Lodges, and the appendant bodies of the Craft.

    Non-members are aware of the spirit of friendship that exists between members of the Craft. The question is sometimes asked out of curiosity whether Masons are required to patronize other Masons in their business transactions. Every Mason knows that there is no such rule of the Craft. But we must recognize that when one is considering entering into a business or professional relationship he is more likely to select someone that he knows and trusts. If you need the services of a real estate broker, for example, and you have been working on a project with a fellow member of your lodge, there can be little doubt that all things being equal your Masonic friend will receive your patron-age. Personal contacts, working together, developing friendships is bound to result in business and professional relationships in many in-stances even though no Masonic law requires this to be done.

    For the member who is interested in intellectual pursuits, the reading of Masonic books especially in the area of Masonic philosophy and history, can be a valuable experience. These books, of course, can be read by non-Masons but they will not be able to receive full benefit of the material in these books because of their lack of complete information about the Craft .

    Each member, if he gives this matter some thought, undoubtedly can recall instances in which his Masonic membership has proved to be a benefit to him. Above all else, it is well to be prepared to answer the question should the occasion arise, “What Benefits do you receive from your Masonic membership?” MORE INFORMATION CONTACT PALANDRE ON +254727106000 or send an email to palandre.george36@gmail.com

    JOINING FREEMASON
    Expressing a desire to join the fraternity is the first step to becoming a freemason.
    What attracts a man to Freemasonry? Every man comes of his own free will and accord, with his own individual needs and interests. One man may join so that he can associate with other men who believe that only by improving themselves can they hope to improve the world. Another man may join because he is looking for a focus for his charitable inclinations. And yet another may be attracted by a strong sense of history and tradition. Many join simply because they knew a friend or relative who was a freemason and they admired that man’s way of living his life. All who join and become active discover a bond of brotherly affection and a community of mutual support; a practical extension of their own religious and social beliefs.
    Please read a short article entitled “The Ideal of a freemason”. It was written over a hundred years ago and sums up much of what attracts some to Freemasonry. Keep in mind that this is an ideal. This is a goal that some freemasons may fall short of, but they all have committed themselves to a path that leads to this ideal. We do not consider ourselves superior, but we do hold ourselves to high standards.

    To be eligible for membership in the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of British Columbia and Yukon an applicant must satisfy the following qualifications:

    1. The ability to read and write in English.
    2. Have resided in British Columbia or the Yukon for the previous twelve months.
    3. Have resided within the jurisdiction of the constituent lodge for the previous six months.
    4. “shall be a man, of the full age of 21 years, free born and capable of supporting himself and those dependent upon him.”
    5. Be, in clear conscience, able to answer the following questions in the affirmative:
    a) Do you seriously and upon your honour declare that uninfluenced by mercenary or other unworthy motives, and unbiased by the improper solicitations of friends, you freely and voluntarily offer yourself a candidate for the mysteries of Freemasonry?
    b) Do you seriously and upon your honour declare that you are prompted to solicit the privileges of Freemasonry by a favorable opinion conceived of the Institution and a desire for knowledge?
    c) Do you believe in the existence of a Supreme Being?
    Initiates are required to pay an Initiation Fee. Members are expected to pay Annual Dues and be actively involved in the working of their lodge. This requires a commitment of two to four evenings a month and the effort to study and understand Freemasonry’s philosophy, history, ritual and practices. As in any society, the member can only get out of it what he puts into it.
    Requirements in other jurisdictions may vary. FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT PALANDRE ON +254727106000 Or email me on palandre.george36@gmail.com

    , you must be over the age of 21. Some states vary, so you will need to ask.

    You must believe in a Supreme Being. (This is a requirement in the majority of jurisdictions around the world.)

    You must be able to support yourself and your family.

    You must live a moral and ethical life.

    You must have a strong desire to want to make a difference in the world. By your actions, you want to make yourself a better man, and make your community and the world a better place to live.

    Are Lodge dues expensive if I become a Free Mason?

    Typically, lodge dues are a nominal sum in the United States, however each Lodge varies, somewhat. Lodge dues in other countries vary. Some are nominal sums and some can be more expensive. Inquiries as to the annual dues in your area should be made to your individual lodge.

    What will I gain if I become a Free Mason?

    1. You will never again be truly alone, because you are a part of a brotherhood of men who want to see you prosper in all ways possible and if it is within their ability, they will help you to do so.

    2. You will learn to focus your energies upon an upright and truthful life, and remove the more negative excesses which all of mankind must continually resist.

    3. If you become a Free Mason, you will become a better man, if you truly wish to study and learn.

    How do I begin the process to become a Free Mason?

    1. you may look in the telephone book for the phone number of a Masonic lodge near you, however, it is highly probable no one will be there to answer your call because lodges usually only meet twice a month, during a week day, in the evening.

    2. If you find a man who has a bumper sticker that says: 2B1Ask1, you may ask him to provide you a petition. He probably won’t have a petition for Masonic admission with him, but if you give him your name and phone number, he will contact a member of his lodge, who will contact you.

    3. However, the easiest way to begin the process to become a Free Mason is to contact your state or country’s Grand Lodge. You may call them or fill out their website form and request that they have someone contact you.

    Then what happens?

    Arrangements will be made to meet you, personally, to discuss Freemasonry.

    A committee of members from the Lodge, which are called the Investigative Committee, will contact you to arrange a meeting.

    They will answer any questions you may have. If the meeting is mutually satisfactory; you will be asked if you wish to fill out a petition form.

    The Investigative Committee performs inquiries of others as to your character. In the United States, this may take a few weeks. In most other countries around the world, this thorough investigative process may take up to 2 years.

    Your request for membership will be balloted upon by the lodge’s members.

    You will be advised of the date of your admission.

    What is Freemasonry?

    Freemasonry, sometimes just called Masonry, is the word’s oldest and largest Fraternity. It aims to promote Friendship, Morality, and Brotherly Love among its members — men from every race, religion, opinion, and background — who are brought together as Brothers to develop and strengthen the bonds of friendship. There are more than 3 million members meeting in nearly every free country in the world. Freemasonry proposes to “make good men better” by teaching — with metaphors taken from geometry and architecture — about building values based on great universal truths. And of course, charity and community service is fundamental to Freemasonry and something we actively take part in.

    Where can I get more information about the Freemasons?

    The best way to get information is to talk to a Mason — either online or in person. You can ask questions of real Freemasons on our Live Forum, or you can use the “Find a Lodge” tab at the top of each page to link to the Grand Lodge website in your state. Most of these sites have Lodge Locators where you can find contact information for a Mason at a Lodge near you. That person, usually the Secretary of the Lodge, will answer your questions and provide you with additional information. If you would like, he can usually arrange a convenient time to meet, introduce you to some other members, give you a tour their building, and answer your questions. You may have some of the same questions as those below — so take a look at the rest of the FAQ’s.

    What are the requirements to become a Mason?

    Although exact membership requirements may vary slightly from country to country and state to state, generally anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a Lodge for membership:

    You are an adult male (usually 18-21, based on the individual jurisdiction) of good character and recommended by a Mason.
    You believe in a Supreme Being — no atheist can become a Mason — but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.
    You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; and, your decision to apply is based on your own “free will and accord.” No one will compel you to join.

    How do I become a Freemason? Ask!

    Because Masons have not traditionally recruited members, and do not hold public meetings, there has long been confusion about how to join the Fraternity. Does someone ask you? Do you ask?

    If you meet the requirements above, it is really quite simple:

    Most men can become a Mason by simply asking — – like Washington, Franklin, and most every Mason from the past to the present day. Each Lodge manages the membership process for its candidates. In general, men seek out a Lodge near their home or work (the “Find a Lodge” feature above will help you find the nearest Lodge), or they ask a Mason to recommend a Lodge to them. Once you’ve found a Lodge you would like to join, let them know of your interest and they will provide you with a petition.

    If you are unanimously elected by the members of a Lodge, joining the Fraternity involves going through three “degrees”: Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft, and Master Mason. Every man accepted into the Fraternity goes through the degrees, thereby making each an equal to the others in the Lodge. Typically they are conferred during a Lodges’s monthly meeting over the course of three months. Once you are a Master Mason, however, you are free to join the many appendant organizations. Some of these are described on our “Masonic Family” page. You should know though, that the 3rd Degree, or Master Mason degree, is the highest degree in Freemasonry — any others are supplemental, and though they may add to your Masonic experience, the degrees are no higher, regardless of their number.

    What if I don’t know a Mason who can recommend me?

    It is quite possible you know a Mason but you just don’t realize it. If your father, uncles, or grandfathers aren’t Masons, they probably know someone who is. You might also want to ask around your workplace or school, church, or gym — anywhere that you find a group of men, you might find a Mason. Masons tend to be very proud of their association with the Fraternity, but though many love to talk about Masonry, others are uncomfortable talking about it. Some find it difficult to speak with their friends or family members because they don’t want to push Masonry on them. They might very well be looking forward to the opportunity to speak with you if you show interest, however. More importantly, they would probably be honored to sponsor you for membership.

    If you don’t know anyone who is a Mason and you are a complete stranger to all of the members of the Lodge, you are going to want to take some time getting to know them. They are going to want to take some time getting to know you too. Once you are ready to Ask, a member of the Lodge will sign your petition.

    How do I find a Lodge?

    The best resource for the information you need is the Grand Lodge that presides over your jurisdiction (your state or province in North America, your country most everywhere else in the world). Use the drop down box in the “Find a Lodge” tab to find yours. Do not hesitate to contact them. They will welcome your inquiry.

    What are the time and/or financial commitments of being a Mason?

    Time: Becoming a Mason takes several months from the time you complete your petition until you have finished your degrees. Until you begin taking your degrees though, very little is asked of you. Once the degree work begins you will need to attend your Lodge’s monthly meeting. Different states may have additional requirements, such as attending a “Lodge of Instruction,” where you receive further explanation about the degree you just experienced. There is also some side work that you will need to complete that amounts to a little bit of homework. Every member of the Fraternity has gone through this process and your lodge will assign a Brother to help you.

    Once you have completed your three degrees, we expect our members to attend their lodge’s “Stated Communication,” or monthly meeting, although it is not required. Sometimes there will be a special meeting on a second night in a month, and rarely, you may find some Lodges that have stated meetings twice a month. Beyond that, there are other activities going on: community service, family and social outings, etc. that take place throughout the year. We hope our members will participate in the events that their time and interest allows. Like many things, you get out of Freemasonry what you put into it; although we also recognize and understand the need for balance between family, work or school, and other interests and commitments.

    Cost: Considering the cost to join many organizations these days, Freemasonry could be thought of as a bargain. But there are some costs involved, like initiation fees and dues.

    A one-time initiation fee is usually set by each lodge. The amount varies, again, from country to country and state to state. As an example only, in the State of Massachusetts, initiation generally runs between $100 and $250, with the average around $150. There are also annual dues, which again differ from lodge-to-lodge, that run between $50 and $150, with $75 being the average. Some lodges will charge more than these amounts and some charge less. Finally, there are Grand Lodge dues in most states. Again, as an example, in Massachusetts Grand Lodge dues are $29.

    Again, these costs are just one example. You will want to check with your local Lodge and/or your state’s Grand Lodge to get exact amounts.

    Where did Freemasonry come from?

    Part of the mystique of Freemasonry can be attributed to speculation about its roots. Over the years, historians have never been able to conclusively determine exactly when, where, how, and why Freemasonry was formed.

    The order is thought to have arisen from the English and Scottish guilds of practicing stonemasons and cathedral builders in the Middle Ages. Certain Masonic documents actually trace the sciences of geometry and masonry to the time of ancient Egypt, and some historians say that Masonry has its real roots in antiquity.

    The formation of the first Grand Lodge in London in 1717 marks the beginning of the Modern (or “Speculative”) era of Freemasonry, when members were no longer limited to actual working stonemasons. These “Accepted” Masons adopted more enlightened philosophies, and turned what was a tradesmen’s organization into a fraternity for moral edification, intellectual recitation, benevolent service, and gentlemanly socialization.

    Why is there so much interest in Masonry today?

    Over the last four centuries, Freemasonry seems to have flourished during times of great enlightenment and change. It is no coincidence that Freemasonry rose to prominence during the Age of Enlightenment in both Europe and America. That was the time when a new generation believed it could discover ways to gain personal improvement, bring order to society, and understand the whole universe. This statement is perhaps even stronger today than it was in the 18th century.

    Today, men seek out Masonry for the same reasons — to better themselves and improve society in the company of like-minded Brothers. As we learn more about how our physical world works, there’s also new interest in those things we don’t understand — especially things bound around tradition or that have a more mystical nature. Also, books like The Da Vinci Code and movies like National Treasure have brought up both new interest and renewed speculation about the nature of the Fraternity. Though these books and movies are a product more of a vivid imagination than fact, the real history of Masonry is perhaps the best story of all — one learned only by Asking — and becoming a Freemason.

    What are the benefits of becoming a Mason?

    There are numerous benefits to being a Mason, but they tend to be personal, and quite varied. The benefits can only be truly discovered by becoming a member. But we can try and give you an idea. Without question you will have the opportunity to experience camaraderie and fellowship with a group of men across the boundaries of age, race, religion, culture, and opinion. This is a fundamental concept to the Fraternity. Many find great value and knowledge in our ritual ceremony — it uses symbolism and metaphors to encourage and remind us to appreciate principles, ethics, and morality, and to live our lives accordingly. Others find great satisfaction in our charitable efforts, community service, and the support we provide our members and their families. Finally, for those who take on leadership positions within their lodge, they have the chance to develop or further very practical management skills.

    Can Freemasonry actually prepare me for greatness?

    No organization can guarantee to make anyone great — the capacity and motivation must come from the individual. But the powerful values and important truths that are taught as part of the Masonic tradition have proven to inspire, challenge, and develop leadership in men throughout the centuries. Benjamin Franklin may have said it best, describing the Fraternity as a place to “prepare himself.”

    Today, men are preparing themselves for greatness in Lodges the world over. If you think there’s greatness in you, we invite your interest.

    Why aren’t there any famous women who are Masons?

    Freemasonry is, by definition, a fraternity that aims to promote Brotherly Love and Friendship among its members. It is a worldwide organization that draws together men and helps cultivate and promote better relationships and the bonds of friendships between them. Freemasonry doesn’t focus on Friendship and Brotherly Love because it believes that only relations between men are important, or that relations between men and women are unimportant, but because hope for peace and harmony in the world is improved when men can put aside their differences and come together as friends.

    Masons also appreciate and value relations with women. We sponsor and participate in Masonic related organizations that include women and/or girls, such as the Order of Eastern Star, the Order of Rainbow for Girls, and Job’s Daughters.

    Is Masonry a Religion?

    Masonry is not a religion. But because it is open to all men who believe in a Supreme Being, it is one of the few platforms where men of all faiths — Christians (including Catholics), Jews, Muslims, and men of every other faith, can come together. Religion, though, is not discussed at Masonic meetings. Although Lodges open and close with a prayer and Masonry teaches morality, it is not a church or a religion. Masonry does not have a theology or a dogma, it does not offer sacraments, and it does not offer the promise of salvation.

    Is Freemasonry a charity?

    No. Masonic principles teach the value of relief (charity), and Freemasons give more than $2 million A DAY to charitable causes, along with countless man hours. More than 70% of these donations support the general public. Among their works are the Shriners Hospitals for Children, with 22 sites throughout North America that include world renowned burn centers and orthopedic facilities; almost 225 Learning Centers that help children with dyslexia, speech and hearing disorders; the Masonic Youth Child Identification Program (MYCHIP), and the Masonic Angel Foundation, providing modest assistance to children and adults in local communities who do not fit the criteria for usual social-services. Throughout America and world, there are numerous other worthy causes and groups that local Lodges contribute to and help in their communities.

    Is Masonry a secret society?

    No. It is sometimes said that Freemasonry is a “Society with secrets, not a secret society.” In point of fact, however, any purported Masonic “secrets” were made public several centuries ago in London newspapers, and today can be found in the Library of Congress, on the Internet, and in many books on the subject. Benjamin Franklin once said, “The great secret of Freemasonry is that there is no secret at all.” But some say the one great secret of Freemasonry… is finding out who YOU really are.

    What about secret handshakes, ritual, and passwords?

    Freemasonry, often called the “Craft” by its members, employs metaphors of architecture. Following the practice of the ancient stonemason guilds, Freemasons use special handshakes, words, and symbols to not only to identify each other, but to help, as William Preston said in 1772, “imprint upon the memory wise and serious truths.”

    Although every Freemason takes an obligation — and vows to keep the secrets of Masonry — it doesn’t matter to him that you can find the secrets in print; what matters is that he keeps his promise. And the secrets he is protecting are only used to help Masons become better men; and there’s certainly no secret surrounding what it takes to be good and true.

    What is Masonic “ritual?”

    The nature of Masonic ritual is both complex and beautiful. “Ritual” is a formal ceremony of initiation which recites certain tenets and truths that have been passed down for generations — mostly from mouth to ear. This “Ritual” takes the form of lectures and theater in the Lodge, and is used to teach new Masons the value of true friendship, the benefits of knowledge, and the necessity of helping those in need.

    It speaks to the power and impact our ritual has on men’s hearts and minds because it has stood the test of time for more than 300 years. Although our world has changed dramatically during that time, our ritual is virtually the same.

    Not everyone will want to learn the ancient ritual — as it takes great time and study — but those Masons who chose to learn it are rewarded with the satisfaction of upholding a great tradition and helping their fellow brothers further their Masonic understanding.

    Finally…

    Just because the secrets have been made public doesn’t mean everyone knows the mystery of Masonry. In fact, much of the appeal of the Craft is that the great truths revealed in Masonic ritual can take years to understand. Like the building of any great structure, the powerful metaphors and symbols of Masonry build character — and sometimes greatness — one stone at a time.

    The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which replaces sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda that ideologizes its establishment as the culmination of history’s progress. Significant occurrences in politics and finance are speculated to be orchestrated by an unduly influential cabal operating through many front organizations. Numerous historical and current events are seen as steps in an on-going plot to achieve world domination through secret political gatherings and decision-making processes.[2][3][4][5][6]

    Prior to the early 1990s, New World Order conspiracism was limited to two American countercultures, primarily the militantly anti-government right, and secondarily fundamentalist Christians concerned with end-time emergence of the Antichrist.[7] Skeptics, such as Michael Barkun and Chip Berlet, have observed that right-wing populist conspiracy theories about a New World Order have now not only been embraced by many seekers of stigmatized knowledge but have seeped into popular culture, thereby inaugurating an unrivaled period of people actively preparing for apocalyptic millenarian scenarios in the United States of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.[3][5] These political scientists are concerned that this mass hysteria could have what they judge to be devastating effects on American political life, ranging from widespread political alienation to escalating lone-wolf terrorism.[3][5]

    Freemasonry is a politically powerful financial organization operating under the guise of an all encompassing religion generally open, at least at some levels, to everyone but atheists. Their goal is the domination of the world from a deistic perspective. NOTE: Freemason concern for morality is focused in relationship to their own membership, not upon morality in the world. While they allow membership to those who have belief systems that recognize the existence of a god or god’s ranging from the Christian universal creator, an active God, to totem pole worshipers and agnostics, most lodges will not allow the name of any god to be mentioned at meetings.

    A one-time initiation fee is usually set by each lodge. The amount varies, again, from country to country and state to state. As an example only, in the State of Massachusetts, initiation generally runs between $100 and $250, with the average around $150. There are also annual dues, which again differ from lodge-to-lodge, that run between $50 and $150, with $75 being the average. Some lodges will charge more than these amounts and some charge less. Finally, there are Grand Lodge dues in most states. Again, as an example, in Massachusetts Grand Lodge dues are $29.

    Again, these costs are just one example. You will want to check with your local Lodge and/or your state’s Grand Lodge to get exact amounts.

    Where did Freemasonry come from?

    Part of the mystique of Freemasonry can be attributed to speculation about its roots. Over the years, historians have never been able to conclusively determine exactly when, where, how, and why Freemasonry was formed.

    The order is thought to have arisen from the English and Scottish guilds of practicing stonemasons and cathedral builders in the Middle Ages. Certain Masonic documents actually trace the sciences of geometry and masonry to the time of ancient Egypt, and some historians say that Masonry has its real roots in antiquity.

    The formation of the first Grand Lodge in London in 1717 marks the beginning of the Modern (or “Speculative”) era of Freemasonry, when members were no longer limited to actual working stonemasons. These “Accepted” Masons adopted more enlightened philosophies, and turned what was a tradesmen’s organization into a fraternity for moral edification, intellectual recitation, benevolent service, and gentlemanly socialization.

    Why is there so much interest in Masonry today?

    Over the last four centuries, Freemasonry seems to have flourished during times of great enlightenment and change. It is no coincidence that Freemasonry rose to prominence during the Age of Enlightenment in both Europe and America. That was the time when a new generation believed it could discover ways to gain personal improvement, bring order to society, and understand the whole universe. This statement is perhaps even stronger today than it was in the 18th century.

    Today, men seek out Masonry for the same reasons — to better themselves and improve society in the company of like-minded Brothers. As we learn more about how our physical world works, there’s also new interest in those things we don’t understand — especially things bound around tradition or that have a more mystical nature. Also, books like The Da Vinci Code and movies like National Treasure have brought up both new interest and renewed speculation about the nature of the Fraternity. Though these books and movies are a product more of a vivid imagination than fact, the real history of Masonry is perhaps the best story of all — one learned only by Asking — and becoming a Freemason.

    What are the benefits of becoming a Mason?

    There are numerous benefits to being a Mason, but they tend to be personal, and quite varied. The benefits can only be truly discovered by becoming a member. But we can try and give you an idea. Without question you will have the opportunity to experience camaraderie and fellowship with a group of men across the boundaries of age, race, religion, culture, and opinion. This is a fundamental concept to the Fraternity. Many find great value and knowledge in our ritual ceremony — it uses symbolism and metaphors to encourage and remind us to appreciate principles, ethics, and morality, and to live our lives accordingly. Others find great satisfaction in our charitable efforts, community service, and the support we provide our members and their families. Finally, for those who take on leadership positions within their lodge, they have the chance to develop or further very practical management skills.

    Can Freemasonry actually prepare me for greatness?

    No organization can guarantee to make anyone great — the capacity and motivation must come from the individual. But the powerful values and important truths that are taught as part of the Masonic tradition have proven to inspire, challenge, and develop leadership in men throughout the centuries. Benjamin Franklin may have said it best, describing the Fraternity as a place to “prepare himself.”

    Today, men are preparing themselves for greatness in Lodges the world over. If you think there’s greatness in you, we invite your interest.for more information contact +254726081145

    Why aren’t there any famous women who are Masons?

    Freemasonry is, by definition, a fraternity that aims to promote Brotherly Love and Friendship among its members. It is a worldwide organization that draws together men and helps cultivate and promote better relationships and the bonds of friendships between them. Freemasonry doesn’t focus on Friendship and Brotherly Love because it believes that only relations between men are important, or that relations between men and women are unimportant, but because hope for peace and harmony in the world is improved when men can put aside their differences and come together as friends.

    Masons also appreciate and value relations with women. We sponsor and participate in Masonic related organizations that include women and/or girls, such as the Order of Eastern Star, the Order of Rainbow for Girls, and Job’s Daughters.

    Is Masonry a Religion?

    Masonry is not a religion. But because it is open to all men who believe in a Supreme Being, it is one of the few platforms where men of all faiths — Christians (including Catholics), Jews, Muslims, and men of every other faith, can come together. Religion, though, is not discussed at Masonic meetings. Although Lodges open and close with a prayer and Masonry teaches morality, it is not a church or a religion. Masonry does not have a theology or a dogma, it does not offer sacraments, and it does not offer the promise of salvation.

    Is Freemasonry a charity?

    No. Masonic principles teach the value of relief (charity), and Freemasons give more than $2 million A DAY to charitable causes, along with countless man hours. More than 70% of these donations support the general public. Among their works are the Shriners Hospitals for Children, with 22 sites throughout North America that include world renowned burn centers and orthopedic facilities; almost 225 Learning Centers that help children with dyslexia, speech and hearing disorders; the Masonic Youth Child Identification Program (MYCHIP), and the Masonic Angel Foundation, providing modest assistance to children and adults in local communities who do not fit the criteria for usual social-services. Throughout America and world, there are numerous other worthy causes and groups that local Lodges contribute to and help in their communities.

    Is Masonry a secret society?

    No. It is sometimes said that Freemasonry is a “Society with secrets, not a secret society.” In point of fact, however, any purported Masonic “secrets” were made public several centuries ago in London newspapers, and today can be found in the Library of Congress, on the Internet, and in many books on the subject. Benjamin Franklin once said, “The great secret of Freemasonry is that there is no secret at all.” But some say the one great secret of Freemasonry… is finding out who YOU really are.

    What about secret handshakes, ritual, and passwords?

    Freemasonry, often called the “Craft” by its members, employs metaphors of architecture. Following the practice of the ancient stonemason guilds, Freemasons use special handshakes, words, and symbols to not only to identify each other, but to help, as William Preston said in 1772, “imprint upon the memory wise and serious truths.”

    Although every Freemason takes an obligation — and vows to keep the secrets of Masonry — it doesn’t matter to him that you can find the secrets in print; what matters is that he keeps his promise. And the secrets he is protecting are only used to help Masons become better men; and there’s certainly no secret surrounding what it takes to be good and true.

    What is Masonic “ritual?”

    The nature of Masonic ritual is both complex and beautiful. “Ritual” is a formal ceremony of initiation which recites certain tenets and truths that have been passed down for generations — mostly from mouth to ear. This “Ritual” takes the form of lectures and theater in the Lodge, and is used to teach new Masons the value of true friendship, the benefits of knowledge, and the necessity of helping those in need.

    It speaks to the power and impact our ritual has on men’s hearts and minds because it has stood the test of time for more than 300 years. Although our world has changed dramatically during that time, our ritual is virtually the same.

    Not everyone will want to learn the ancient ritual — as it takes great time and study — but those Masons who chose to learn it are rewarded with the satisfaction of upholding a great tradition and helping their fellow brothers further their Masonic understanding.

    Finally…

    Just because the secrets have been made public doesn’t mean everyone knows the mystery of Masonry. In fact, much of the appeal of the Craft is that the great truths revealed in Masonic ritual can take years to understand. Like the building of any great structure, the powerful metaphors and symbols of Masonry build character

    Every afternoon from 3pm, a procession of posh cars with tinted windows delivers an average of 70 ‘worshipful brothers’ — many of them prominent Nairobians — to the Masonic temple located off Nyerere Road.

    Long considered a preserve of the rich and famous, the secretive Freemasons now seem to be attracting hordes of potential followers from unlikely quarters.

    Not too long ago, any association with the organisation, which some believe worships the devil and has bizarre rituals, would have inspired deep furrows of the brow. But, as The Nairobian found out in its investigations, things seem to be changing — and they are not all glittery.

    Desperate Nairobians out to do everything to join this exclusive fraternity, are now falling into the hands of conmen, who at a fee are promising membership.

    “They (the con artists) hang around the gate and speak to curious visitors, who want to join. Since it is not easy for anyone to just walk in here, the promise to give access is usually given at a high price,” a worker at the Masonic Hall, who sought anonymity for fear of losing his job, told us.

    The cons have gone the extra mile by setting up blogs and websites that hawk their services. One of the sites has the banner, “How to join Freemasonry worldwide” and goes on to boast: “In Freemasonry we believe that we were born in paradise and no member should struggle in this world. Hence all our new members are given Money Rewards once they join in order to upgrade their lifestyle.”

    This site that lists registration fees of up to Sh20,000 to join Freemasonry promises a reward of $200,000 (Sh16.6 million) immediately after joining.

    Facing hard times, a number of Kenyans, who regard the mysterious organisation as a short cut to riches, are also posting their numbers online in sites where Freemasonry is mentioned, hoping that someone will contact them.

    When we called one of the numbers listed, the man who answered the call said he was ready to pay Sh1 million to be a Freemason while another pledged to offer any sacrifice asked for, in a shocking revelation of the lengths some are prepared to go for supposed wealth found in Freemansonry.

    “To ensure that I only deal with serious people and also limiting the number of petitions, I require that you send Sh1,500 through M-Pesa to (number redacted) after which I will call you to arrange on how we can socially meet and get to introduce you to a lodge of convenience,” a statement in one of the online fraudsters reads.

    With such enticement, it is no wonder then that some have been conned. Take one Jacob Ouma, who posted his experience in one of the sites: “I met a guy who promised to help me. I sent the amount to him then he switched his phone off until now.”The increased efforts to join the Freemason come at a time when the organisations, once a shadowy and exclusive fraternal society, that dates back to medieval Britain, has been putting efforts to open up to the public.

    Early this year, the fraternity released a book titled Freemasonry Explained Pocket Book of Facts, Myths, Misconceptions and FAQ’s on Freemasonry authored by their ‘Orator’ (someone allowed to speak to the public) Prof Bill Lore. We were unable to reach the professor as he was said to be out of the country.

    The book explains that members of the organisation are not devil worshippers or homosexuals, and are not connected with “the new world order”.

    The book further says it is not a secret society, they do not have supernatural powers, do not walk naked and do not sacrifice their male children in exchange for material wealth.

    Despite such damming accusations and the refusal of majority of their members to be named in public, the number of Freemasons membership in Kenya continues to grow with estimations that it may reach 3,000 soon.

    In a 2011 interview with our sister publication, The Standard, VK Talwar, the district grand master for East Africa, said that to become a Freemason one must believe in a supreme being.

    “Whatever it is you believe in is not our concern, we don’t interfere with that. All somebody has to say is that he is not an atheist. If you are an atheist, you can’t become a freemason,” said Talwar, adding that freemasonry is not a religion.

    Once associated with blood oaths, secret handshakes, arcane rites and binding vows to aid “brothers in distress”, Freemasons have inspired a worldwide movement of anti-masons.

    For example, in 1999 hundreds of supposed Mungiki members unsuccessfully attempted to set on fire the Nairobi Masonic temple claiming that it housed satanic and demonic materials. One of the then Mungiki leaders Ndura Waruinge claimed that they were targeting “a snake which is fed on human blood drawn from children kidnapped by Freemasons.”

    For years, the church in Kenya has propagated the view that Freemasons are devil worshippers. However, a report on devil worship that has never been released to the public reportedly cleared them of the claim.

    The Masons have long been prohibited from talking about their secret meetings, and until the 18th century were forbidden to talk about the society’s very existence.

    But times do change. Today they run a website where they list a number of their officials, they request the media to cover their charity activities and even advertise their charitable events.

    There is no regular Grand Lodge of Tanzania. The only regular Masonic Lodges in Tanzania are under the jurisdiction of the District Grand Lodge of East Africa, which is based out of Kenya. These Lodges are part of the United Grand Lodge of England. If you live in Tanzania and are serious about becoming a Freemason, you need to do it through that District Grand Lodge. If you find any organization claiming to be under the jurisdiction of “Grand Lodge of Tanzania” or ANYTHING other than the District Grand Lodge I mentioned, you should assume that it is a “clandestine Lodge” and NOT part of regular, mainstream Freemasonry. Joining a clandestine Lodge means you would not be able to visit any regular Lodges anywhere in the world.

    i am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail… i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me.

    ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous”
