May 6, 1 970To the members of Lodge # _____,Once again it's time to pay dues and once again I'm refusing to pay. That's right, I'mrefusing to pay because I'm still waiting for THAT MAN that you people were to send to answersome questions. A few of you were in attendance several months ago when I submitted a list of questions to be answered and none of you were able to answer them to my satisfaction. I stated,
"The God of the Masons and the God of the Bible is not the same God."
I had several examplesof which you disagreed with and we finally stated the meeting wasn't fruitful and you'd find aminister in Dayton to answer.Gentlemen, I received a notice on Feb. 16th that as of Feb. 28th - I would no longer be amember of your great Lodge because of non-payment of dues. IF YOUR WORD ISN'T ANYMORE STABLE THAN IT WAS SHOWN - then I will be quite happy to be dropped as amember.You teach falsehood of the only hope you'll see the Bible grant the veil of blindness be
be shown. All of your claims as such are contained within the Old Testament.Christ is revealed as The Way, The Truth, and The Life in the New Testament. So as you maysee - you miss the mark for the route to the Master of Whom you seem to base some concepts.The Great Light of Masonry reveals the only way unto God, but the Lodge is to busy withinspections and the raising of candidates to seek the depth of understanding the Great Light hasto offer. (John 3:19-20) The Great Light (Bible) says darkness (which is unbelief) will not haveanything to do with light (which is the Spirit of truth) because light reveals what ever is hidden.As for the character of the men in the Lodge - I have only seen three in the lodge whichseem to have searched, or are searching beyond their noses for the RIGHT the Bible doesdeclare. Those three are: Mr. S, Mr. S and Mr. K. They are concerned and do seem to want thelodge to stand on what is RIGHT. There's still depth they need, because the search ends onlywhen Christ is there to lead. Christ said,
"No man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Gentlemen, you have not Christ as your leader. He (the Way) is not declared in the lodge.Yet - you wear a symbol of His innocence - the lambskin apron as a sign of purity - that apronshould be black as sin - if you have refused Him as your guide. Bible says,
"He who has the Sonhas life, he who has not the Son has not life and the wrath of God abideth in him."
Maybe thiswill give you
a brief idea of why I ask questions of a lodge and it may also reveal why thelodge has failed to find the man to answer my questions.Scriptures and call it fact. I can in the true light and that God will lifted and the true routeto the These are statements to several members: Mr. P - you must have lost interest, you nevercalled back, or ask for a personal meeting. Mr. S - was the statements confounding - you neveranswered or called either.
