Woe to you

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." (Matthew 7:7-8)
These verses will be applied to your entering Masonry (i.e., you asked the recommendation of a friend, you sought admission, and you knocked on the door of the Lodge and Masonry opened its doors for you). You may wish to look these verses up and see what Jesus had in mind when he made these statements so you can discuss them factually, should anyone ask. Perhaps other Masons would be interested to find out that Jesus uses them in reference to himself, not Masonry. It might lead to an interesting discussion of why the Craft feels it can reinterpret Jesus' words for its own reasons.

T. N. Sampson
