    They may be trying to deter you from you joining to see how serious you are about it. A lot of folks join or do things on a whim. Masons do, or should at least try to, guard their 'gates' to not allow men in that will ultimately get out or not take it seriously. Not saying you are that way, but many men that want to join do it for the wrong reasons.

    Only you can answer that question. We cannot tell you why you want to become a Mason. You're asking us to feed you an answer that they will want to hear, rather than answering the question from your heart.

    Why do you want to join? Do you have hundreds of US dollars for fees and from 6 months to 3 years to study at least 6 hours/week? That is a very realistic idea of the commitment required

    You won’t become rich nor powerful - that is a myth - Masonic lodge will investigate you to determine if you can afford the dues/fees without material hardship.

    Some of those fees are for charity contributions to groups not to individuals

    So what’s your hurry? It could take years to be a Freemason depending on what country.

    I cannot understand why anyone would think that a Texas based masonic forum which ONLY provides information mostly applicable to the USA has any influence in other countries
