Freemasonry is only a worldly thing and not a Spiritual thing in Salvation, so how can a FM better himself ? he can only come across as good in a worldly way, like in promoting himself how he wants to be seen, because he has learnt a craft that elevates man. nothing wrong with that, but such is just only as filthy rags in the light of God.
What does bother me is when a Son ask a question, he should get a truthful reply ? they don't reply ! and that is a Sin.
I would put my family before any organisation and inform my family everything I know to the best of my ability at all times.
As a true Christian, one knows what secrets are the work of.
Sure I have friends and people I look up to who are FM but I know people who claim to be Christians that I don't look up to much at all.
I had a political party bloke shake my hand and he went side to side ? not up and down, so I asked my FM in law what was that all about ? he said nothing at all to me, it was just as if I did not exist ?
Now I take on a great lot of information when someone shakes my hand, because in my business it can express things about a person.
