Re: Masons: biggest secret society in the world.
FYI, freemasonry is not a secret society nor a satanic religion. Freemasonry came from the group "Poor soldiers of Christ" a.k.a "Order of the Knight Templars" this organization was organized during the 13th century to guard the road between Acre and Jerusalem, they are exactly supported by the Catholic Church and they are the guardian of the secret of the church. In the late year of the order to be exact is 1307 the last grandmaster was accuse by blasphemy together with the order, King Philip the fair of France together (philip IV) with Pope Clement V order the arrest of all members and most of them was burn at the stake. But some of the members was escape and travel to the east until they reach the early United State of America which in that time in Civil war. They help to win the Civil war and together with the new members they change the name and the meetings of the order.
Some of you do not understand why is it that in the lodge of freemasonry they are to many symbols. this are some explanation of the symbol; The two pillars symbolizing the two pillars in the bible, some of the other symbol was adopted in the ancient Egypt writings. The east is the symbol of the morn of life, the south is the noon of life, the west is the symbol of the evening of life , the north symbolize death. the east is where the master sits, west is the senior, and the south is the junior. Every position symbolize power and if they joined together will create equal power. They are 3 degree in the Blue Lodge, this is where you are called master mason but there are other organization to continue your journey, first you can join the Scottish rite where you can continue to 4th degree to 33rd degree. other is York Rite where another set of degree on which you can go. Every Degree has its own password and handgrip, query and others.
Other organization under freemasonry family are Order of DeMolay, Order of Job's Daugther, Order of Rainbow for Girls, Order of Pythagoras, Order of Builders, Order of Eastern Stars, Order of Amaranth, Shriners and etc. All of this order has its own ritual and obligation.
First requirement to join the order is you must believe in one living and true God which is the architect of the Universe, and you must a good citizen of your country.
If you are thinking that freemasonry will dominate the world think again. Why not think that Bill Gates will dominate the world. Not just because Freemasonry has large roll of members they will dominate the world, join the group first then judge it. There are to many teachings in the organization that you may think in your lifetime they never teach but they are. Just as the injunction said "Do not judge a book by its cover".
