LODGE HISTORY BRIEFS

A Masonic Creed

An expression of the simplest form of faith of Masonry, not exhaustive, but incontrovertible and suggestive, the following is:

The Masonic Belief

There is one God, the Father of all men. The Holy Bible is the great light in Masonry, and the rule and guide for our faith and practice. Man is immortal. Character determines destiny. Love of Man is next to love of God, man's first duty. Prayer, communion of man with God is helpful. Recognizing the impossibility of confining the Masonry to any fixed forms of expression, yet acknowledging the value of authoritative statements of fundamental principles, the following is proclaimed as:

The Masonic Teaching

Masonry teaches man to practice charity and benevolence, to protect chastity, to respect the ties of blood and friendship, to adopt the principles and revere the ordinances of religion, to assist the feeble, guide the blind, raise up the downtrodden, shelter the orphan, guard the alter, support the government, inculcate morality, promote learning, love man fear God, implore his mercy and hope for happiness.

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers and sisters to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard; that went down to the skirts of his garments; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forever more". Amen! So mote it be".

(Psalms: 133)

"Thus he showed me; and behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumb-line, with a plum-line in his hand. And the Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumb-line. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumb-line in the midst of my people Israel; I will not again pass by them anymore. "Amos 7: 7,8) 

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh when thou shalt say,

 I have no pleasure in them; while the sun, or the moon, or the stars be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain; in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and grinders cease, because they are few; and those that look out of the windows be darkened, (Ecclesiastes 12: 1,3)
