So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?
Previously, I addressed the incompatibility of Freemasonry and Christianity.
I was stoked to hear of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church's similar 1942 conclusion in their general assembly report: "Christ or the Lodge?" (HT Brother Hank)
The committee finds that the evidence presented concerning the religion of Masonry permits but one conclusion. Although a number of the objections commonly brought against Masonry seem to the committee not to be weighty, yet it is driven to the conclusion that Masonry is a religious institution and as such is definitely anti-Christian.
Far be it from the committee to assert that there are no Christians among the members of the Masonic fraternity. Just as a great many who trust for eternal life solely in the merits of Christ continue as members of churches that have denied the faith, so undoubtedly many sincere Christians, uninformed, or even misinformed, concerning the true character of Freemasonry, hold membership in it without compunction of conscience. But that in no way alters the fact that membership in the Masonic fraternity is inconsistent with Christianity.”
I guess I'm down with OPC. Yeah, you know me.
