Official position of the masonry
Before beginning my investigation of “deviated or not” Freemasonry, I want to clarify the position of official Freemasonry, because we often read about authors who deal with matters concerning Freemasonry and Religion. Almost all of them have a common denominator which is malfeasance, the power to manipulate men and things, occultism and mutual aid aimed at deviance and economic power.
In this premise, I would like to point out that official Freemasonry is not a Religion and does not tend towards a divine vision or sacred worship. Freemasonry is born as an association and is inspired by knowledge, unique through cultural transcendence. Transcending ignorance and reaching out towards knowledge is a goal to raise the individual and social capacities of man. The Great Architect, therefore, is not a deity, but knowledge in its broadest expression.
