Masonic Lodges in Lebanon

‘Secret society’, ‘religion’, and ‘conspiracy theories’ are some of the words that most people think when they hear the word ‘Freemasonry.’ However, most of these beliefs are speculations by people who are mystified about the organization.

 

The Freemasonry

masonIt was in 1717 that the first grand lodge was created in London. Freemasonry began in medieval Europe as an organization for stonemasons. But as the time passed by, it became a social organization or a modern fraternity.

Conspiracies started when people noticed the meetings of the members. Since most of the members are from different places, have different jobs, and doing rituals, people thought that they are from a secret society. There were even 20 decrees from the Catholic Church against Freemasonry. The first decree was issued by Pope Clement XII in 1738 and is still applicable today.

As for what we know, Freemasonry is a social organization. There are 22 children’s hospitals where patients don’t have to pay for anything. There are even reports stating that the organization is donating $2 million every day. Furthermore, they are active with charity works like holding and participating fundraisers for different causes. They are just like social workers who give vouchers to people that can be exchanged for goods and/or services.

 

How to Become a Member

masonryIf you want to become a member, you have to meet the following criteria:

  • Believes in a Supreme Being;
  • Has good morals and a good reputation;
  • Must apply on your own free will;
  • Must be unanimously elected by the Lodge members.

Note that you can’t be a member if you are an atheist. According to Brent Morris, a Masonic historian, the organization was believed to have been built in order to bridge the gap between religious civil wars – which was happening during the time it started.

 

The Masonic Lodge

masonic LodgeMost people get the wrong idea about the “Masonic lodge.” They think it is the physical structure where Masons meet. In actuality, it is the term used to describe the basic organizational unit of the Freemasonry.

Inside the Masonic Lodge, there are top 3 officers: the Master, Senior Warden, and Junior Warden. The Master is similar to the head of an organization. The Senior Warden is the second in command; thus, he assists the Master. The Junior Warden is third in line of the organization and is in-charge of helping the lodge to run smoothly.

 

Masonry in Lebanon

masonry in LebanonIn Lebanon, the first Masonic Lodge was chartered by the Grand Lodge of Scotland in 1861. It was given with the name of Palestine Lodge No. 415 and operated in Beirut but it became dormant in 1895. There are several other Masonic lodges built in Lebanon but some of these were extinct, merged with other, and undergone a change of jurisdictional authority after World War I and II.

    Just like any other organization, the freemasons has been grounded on religion. That’s the reason why they still exist to this day.

     
  4. I have seen so many less fortunate people get to benefit to all these organizations relief efforts. It’s amazing how people help other people in need. 🙂

     
  5. Much of the Non Government Organizations enjoy the support of such brotherhood. I think this make things more beneficial to society.

  10. i want to share my testimony of how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail… i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me. ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous” you need to cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found their number so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great fraternity gave us $1,200,000 to start up our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do, so you can as well WhatsApp them now at +1(540)765-2566 or you can Email: ( church-of-satan@live.com )
