Solomon.Speculative masonry is so far interwoven with religion as to lay us under the strongest obligations to pay that rational homage to the Deity, which at once constitutes our duty and our happiness. It leads the contemplative to view with reverence and admiration the glorious works of creation and inspires them with the most exalted ideas of the perfection of the divine Creator. Samuel Cole.We also have a religion which was given to our forefathers and has been handed down from father to sou. We worship in that way. It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive, to love one another and be united. - Red Jacket.It is more than probable that the diversified customs, institutions and religions of the several nations of the world are less dissimilar in their origin than is often imagined.
