    (not pastors)
    How many of you are Masons?
    How many don't mind if others are?
    How many would not attend a church where the pastor either is a Mason or sees nothing wrong with being one?

    I am not a mason.
    I hate the mason faith.
    I wouldn't even consider a church where masons were thought of in a positive sense.

    My husband and grown sons are NOT masons. My father and step father were and were not men to be admired.

    I don't believe Christian's should be involved with this organization.

    I would not attend a church where the pastor was pro Freemasons in any way.

    it seems to be a very immature organization with many silly rituals.
    i am embarrassed to have once belonged.

    Am not, husband and sons are not,
    yes I mind when other christians align themselves with false teachers such as masons, it dishonors the name of Christ,
    Haven't though about as my pastor is not a mason.

    Masons are men. Some in need of the Saviour, others dedicated to the same Lord Jesus.

    I would welcome masons to my church just as I would welcome all sinners.

    I went through the chairs and also denounced masonry, but prolly not for the same reasons of many here. I have a high respect for masons, as I do for any who give so much time to the benefit of others, and especially children.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    My grandfather was a Mason.

    I would not belong to a church where the pastor and/or church leadership was pro-Freemasonry or ignored the issue (assuming Masons were in the church or Freemasonry became an issue).

    Bottom line, Freemasonry is tantamount to a religion.

    How many here would allow someone to be simultaneously a Catholic and a Baptist, or any other denom. or religion?

    some of the more liberal religionists would see no problem with the simultaneous religion mix

    '
    Not me and neither is anybody in my church.

    "How many would not attend a church where the pastor either is a Mason or sees nothing wrong with being one? "
    I don't mind if a pastor is a member of the Rotary or Lion's club and as long as membership of the Freemasons remains on that level I'm not all that concerned, if people start taking the mumbo jumbo seriously I'd say we have a severe problem.

    Rotary, Round Table and Lions are different leagues to the cult of Freemasonry which worships a composite false god (JE-BAAL-ON); any man who joins the masons pledges his allegiance, through the initiation ceremony, to this demonic entity.

    Christianity and Freemasonry are wholly and utterly incompatible.

    Yours in Christ

    Matt
