    I do not know exactly. I would guess that they use the Holy Bible, Holy Qu'Ran, Zend-Avestas, the sayings of Confucius, the sayings of Buddha, the Talmud, etc.

    Our ritual requires the WM to name the VSL. That's because we have five Volumes on our altars.

    Like he said "Bye Felicia". We don't discriminate on religion, but we do "King James Version" not Labron James...

    A lot of Brothers of the Muslim faith shy away from Masonry because they are trying to find the true word, which they say it's in the Qu'ran but me being the Baptist that I am, will always say that the word ly's within me....

    We aren’t trying to find the true word of god....we are trying to find a made up lost password

    Does the Altar have a bookshelf?

    And even that is symbolic. Knowing an ancient word that gave access to a meeting would not be useful. Our search is for deeper meaning in a story about high personal character and not giving in to the demands of the unworthy. It's not about dying. It's about having something worth dying for. It's not about remembering. It's about taking actions that future generations will consider worth remembering.

    This is the stuff of the divine spark within each of us that most of us lose as we grow up. It's a quest to find that spark that's already there.
