Nate Holcomb, Free from Idolatry

All they have for their efforts is certain material advancement which does not endure past the grave. As they laboriously ascended the "winding stairs," they were promised rich rewards for their labor. But instead of eternal truth, they were given fables. Instead of developing the righteous character of God, they grew in the unholy character of selfishness and greed through seeking extra privileges for themselves to the exclusion of others. Instead of growing in true knowledge, they tickled their vanity with mysterious phrases and symbols which meant nothing, but were empty and void, only to be told at the end of their wearisome journey that the Mason must ever be in search of truth, but will never find it.
