I’m ready to become a Mason BUT. . . tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12126 2018-12-03T21:58:43Z 2018-12-03T22:03:23Z Boazbeonthe33rdlevel Hey there! Thanks for looking here. Okay so a quick recap. About a year or two ago I asked to become a mason. I thought then that the time was right and looking back now, I wasn’t ready. A new year quickly approaches now and I’m ready. I have four main problems right now though.
1. I already asked to be a Mason, and I’m not sure who i can ask now and if i can ask again.

2. I live in a small town and I want to attend this lodge but again I asked one of the members and I’m not sure if it’s right to ask again

3. My friend wants to join with me. I’m not sure if that’s allowed or if we need to take our own paths or what. He said he’ll join when I join.

4. Again I live in a small town and unfortunately a lot of people know my father as an alcoholic, a drug addict, etc. My father also has had run in with the police multiple times and a lot of the police that he has dealt with are in fact masons that attend the lodge I want to attend. Ofcourse I know that I need to take my own path and better myself. Actually a side note: as I write this I can hear my father ramble on drunk in the other room.

Can someone help me out here? I feel stuck and I’m not sure what to do. My situation is tense. Thank you for reading this and answering my questions I appreciate it.

EDIT:I’m also afraid of being black balled for these things.

Wisdom, Strength and Beauty tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12121 2018-11-21T18:24:41Z Kim Hello.

I have a few questions to ask and was wondering if a Mason could give me an answer.

1) As I understand it within the Lodge the ranking of the pillars are Wisdom, Strength and then Beauty. Why is Wisdom placed above Beauty in the Masonic lodge?


2) Do Masons consider themselves the Tribe of Judah? (or at least those of the York Rite)


3) Considering the massive amount of antimasonic propaganda and distorted public opinion, do you fear that you will suffer another WWII masonic holocaust in the lead up to, what seems like, WW III?


What has been is what shall be, what has been done is what shall be done. There is nothing new under the sun.


Thank you


Kim

I feel led to freemasonry tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12123 2018-11-26T20:46:54Z 2018-11-26T20:49:54Z Awoken Hello everyone,

I am new to the site. I am 23 years old and live in Utah, although that is not where I am from. I do not have family members that are, or have been masons (that I know of). Throughout a series of spiritual experiences and epiphanies, I feel led to freemasonry. My interest is totally organic, which leads me to one of my questions: is this a common theme amongst masons? Feeling organically led without knowing any masons personally or having family involved? I’m just curious. Also, are there any platforms I can go visit to casually chat with masons and maybe exchange skype or phone numbers? I have taken a tour of the local lodge in the past and went to a meetup, but have only very recently committed to attending regularly so that I can submit my petition. My first meetup in over a year and only 2nd meetup ever is on thursday the 29th. Thank you and I look forward to my journey in becoming a better man.

Can you be gay or bisexual and a Freemason? tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12043 2018-03-31T05:02:34Z 2018-03-31T05:04:41Z salexandera Hey everyone, hope you are well.

I am interested in finding out if being homosexual or bisexual would preclude a man from joining as a Freemason?

I’m aware that persons in lodges could have different understandings about such matters, however, is there a generalised position on this?

Best,

Oaths and being “unequally yoked?” tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12069 2018-07-20T17:09:24Z 2018-07-20T17:10:26Z Manna33 I am asking this question in regards to 1 Corinthians 6:14, to those Masons here who are active Christians who are avid Bible readers. I am very drawn to Freemasonry and I don’t share the common Christian beliefs that Freemasonry is into evil stuff like Satan worship. I believe that it would be a good thing for me. However, in Freemasonry I would be sharing membership with people of many other faiths. On the other hand, I am pondering the actual context of the Bible verse at hand. It speaks of being “yoked” which symbolically means “teachings.” I wouldn’t be yoked in the sense that Freemasonry would take precedence over my own beliefs. And if yoked means teachings,  then that would mean that a yoke is something altogether different and apart from an oath of membership, correct?

Update on my masonic journey tag:masonforum.com,2018:/viewthread/.12113 2018-10-11T10:03:41Z Michaeluk Hello everyone,
It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Life has run away far too quickly this year!

I thought I’d give a quick update on myself for those of you kind enough to offer help when I was first looking to join.

I am due to complete my third in 2 weeks and very excited! I have also found a club here in London for young masons which has been a great experience to get to know lots of people!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Many thanks,
Michael
