This question has been running through my mind lately and I have come up with the truth albeit at a considerable cost to me in a civil court case. This case was overseen by a judge who without a jury allowed my two opponents whom are both masons to lie under oath without any penalty.
Here is a link that deals with this question on a less personal note than my admittedly biased position against the Freemason Society. Ironically it is my understanding that I had great uncle who was a shipbuilder in Scotland many years ago that belonged to the Freemasons.
Fortunately for me God does not hold the sins of former generations against their children.
Hope you enjoy the read and that you never have to pay the cost that I did to find out that a Mason cannot be a Christian.
