    I belong to a Free Methodist Church. As a rule Free Methodist doctrine is not pro-Masonry but my particular pastor is O.K. with it.

    Southern Baptist here. I have heard conflicting stories about the SBC's stand on Freemasonry, but I have had no negativity at my church (Grandview Baptist, Muskogee).

    My early instruction was in the Shamanistic arts, but those who know me call me a Druid or Wiccan depending upon their cultural framework.

    I wonder what your new president says on the matter, he seems to have some fresh views.

    Is that a faith? I've known Jewish and Christian individuals that study Hermeticism.

    Faith is a point of view on the bigger scope of "God" by whatever the individual may call that. I live the way of the Hermit or internal ascension in other words. This embodies the 7 principles and applying them to my daily conception of life. Freemasonry to me would be a place to refine my character and conceptions on the world, and even that is in line with the Hermetic Philosophy.

    I guess if you had to tag a label on me that is a bit more obvious, I'm a pagan. I believe in an array of gods and goddesses that exist within the Grand Architects creation of the cosmos.

    I'm Presbyterian as well brother and on our session board (ruling elders). I see no conflict, as a matter of fact I believe the craft enhances our understanding of Christian faith.

    True. I'm a Christian with a Hermetic view.

    Concerning my faith, I'm a devout Christian. Concerning which establishment I belong to... I'd have to say the esteemed pedestrians. Lately, when I see a church, I just walk right on by.

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You might know us better by our nickname, Mormons, although we're really not supposed to refer to ourselves as such anymore!

    I live in the area Joseph Smith is from and asked a guy I work with if he was a Mormon (someone had said he was) because I had some questions about Smith and his relationship to Freemasonry. He politely corrected me on that title of "Mormon". Had no idea.

    For me, I look at it this way. In my obligations in becoming a Mason, none of the parts of the obligation conflicted with anything regarding God, Family, and Country. Masonry is not a religion. So your religious beliefs are represented by you simply being a part of the fraternity. Masonry is about your life here on Earth and how to better it. Nothing more, nothing less.
