I worked with a guy who was a 37 degree a great guy but he just had some unbelievable ideas about the bible. I have known other masons who believe the way I do. What does the mason org believe?
As a mason, I can say they the masons do not care what you believe, as long as you believe in a higher power. As for church, I go to church, and have never been asked about it. There are jews, christians, muslims, and catholics in lodges all across the world. Just in South Carolina, for example, there are 40,000 individual masons. Presidents, VP, senators, congressmen, judges, lawyers, preachers, farmers, cooks, taxi cab drivers, there is no way of knowing who is a mason unless you ask. 2b1ask1
