What does Masonic stand for?
Similarly, it is asked, what is the purpose of the Masons?
The basic purpose is to make "better men out of good men", better fathers, better husbands, better brothers and better sons. We try to place emphasis on the individual man by strengthening his character, improving his moral and spiritual outlook and broadening his mental horizons.
Additionally, what is the name of the Masonic God? Certain Christian ministries take the position that Jahbulon is the name of a Masonic Pagan god, and therefore violates the Biblical commandment "You shall have no other gods before me".
Similarly, you may ask, what do the Masonic symbols mean?
As well-represented as the All Seeing Eye is, the Square and Compasses are really the most well known or recognized Freemason symbol. The meaning behind it is quite literal, with the square representing morality in that Freemasons need to 'square [their] actions by the square of virtue with all mankind'.
How do you join the Masons?
- Be a man at least 21 years of age. This is the most basic requirement under most Grand Lodge (the center of authority for Freemason groups) jurisdictions.
- Believe in a supreme being.
- Have high morals.
- Have an educated understanding of Freemasonry.
