The Latin word religare means to tie. Religion is thus what ties up men together to God. In the lodge it's forbidden to speak about religions in terms of doctrine; it is allowed to speak about metaphysics, i. e. God without adjectives!
Personally, I regard and view Freemasonry as having a deep spiritual foundation. Though I also know many who do not share this view, others do in fact likewise share this view, each of us in our own individual and specific ways.
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
