Firstly you must leave the masons, its an evil ungodly dangerous organisation. My dad was a mason and he was so deceived as so many are. Even if your husband wont leave, you must. Your involvement will also badly affect your children. You will need to repent of your involvement as well. Involvement in astrology is also dangerous.
You also need to ask God to direct you to a good Bible believing church who will help you get back on track.

Not sure what you mean by 'you were in an open marriage for gods sake???' God forbids adultery and teaches faithfulness in marriage. So if that is still going on you need to stop that as well and both repent.

Ellel ministries should be able to help. They are quite new to the USA(they have several centres here in the UK) but they should at least be able to give you advise and find someone who can help you get free.

I have good news. God is truly doing his work quickly! My husband said he is willing to come and listen to a priest. I still need your prayers for this. My husband does not believe that masonry is morally wrong, but I want him to know that he won't find God in an organisation. 

I know the path that God chose for me. It is called humility.

Praise him, our father.

 Hi ForgivenSoul, I pray our Heavenly Father is with you as your family discovers the road to salvation through Jesus Christ. May God continue to bless you in the knowledge of Him as you search for the truth. Thank You Father for answered prayers. Let it be so.

Would he read a book written by people who have come out of the masons?

The masons may do charity work, it doesn't make them good. There is nothing godly about them, they are basically worshipping evil. Being a mason brings curses on your family. True repentance is needed, and repenting of the vows you made.

Interesting. I never heard of him before. I think he spoke some truth, but his interpretation of the Shriners is a red flag to me. So, I am not going to believe him. He was not a mason himself, was he? I have no idea how he came up with something like that.

Thank you for the link, but I am not going to challenge my husband's beliefs. He is not going to change who I am or what I desire to become with God. I do not feel that we are cursed. In fact, I felt like I was cursed when I married a Christian who thinks he is wiser than God. I have a lovely family now and I am finally happy. I grew up in Texas by the way. I have guns. I will use a force, if I had to protect myself and my family. Nothing scares me anymore.
   
We talked to a godly and wise priest. He knew better. I’m forgiven. I believe God was going to forgive me anyway, but I chose to humble myself. My husband considers himself a Unitarian Christian. He does not attend a church anymore. I remember that we have been to a Unitarian church 5 years ago and they did not welcome us for being masons. So I do not think anything will change his mind. It took me Many years to come out of this. He also needs to know Jesus. I mean the True one, but that happens through an experience. Not sure how to put it in words but I believe one day he will figure it out just like me. I also do not think I’m saved because I do good works. Like I said, I could be a deadly individual depending on what I need to do and I will not even feel guilty for it. That is why I know only Jesus saves us.   

Thank you for your prayers.

I want to baptize our baby. My husband is OK with it. This is how the Greek Orthodox Baptism is done.

This way I know for sure that she is not going to be influenced by our sins.

Baby baptism is entirely unbiblical and pointless. You both need to repent of your sins yourselves.As long as your husband is part of that organisation it will affect you all. You cant  force him to see this, but pray for protection.

You can have your baby baptized , but the first thing is that a baby baptism is not a forgiveness of sins.
If you are looking as giving her to God for protection.... you can have no way to know if she will or won't be influenced by your sins.

Baptisms are not for the protection to be kept from the influence of anyone's sins....

If that were the case... no baby who was ever baptized would ever sin themselves because they would never be influenced by anyone.

The best way to achieve what you want to do is to repent and stop doing whatever you regard as sins.
That way you can lead by example and raise up your child the way God wants you to.

It is, after all, up to you...not Him

I am not sure how to put it in words myself. It is more of intuition, regardless of what is correct theologically. Sorry, I also do not feel water baptism is a forgiveness of sins either, but I can trust a priest. I am saving a second marriage and this is what I need to do. That is all. 

Have a good day.

You sound like my mother. When she passed away, I knew part of me was not of God. I found out that I do not cry anymore. I decided to marry a preacher, because I thought that would change me like a trick or something, but that did not work. I believe I am born like this. Many Christians fear me. They think of Satan. This is why I want to keep a distance. My mother was a weakling in my eyes. This is the reason why we do not pray for protection. I can pray for my child. Children change who we are sometimes.
