Although Freemasonry is not a religion, The Craft is readily practiced and accepted by men of all faiths without issue or contradiction.
The Christian will see The Craft representing Christ, the Jew will see The Craft representing Moses, the Muslim will see The Craft representing Muhammad, the Buddhist will see The Craft representing Siddartha Gautama, the Baha’i will see The Craft representing Bahá’u’lláh, the Wiccan will see The Craft representing The God and the Goddess, and the Hindu will see The Craft representing Krishna. All Masons, regardless of their spiritual background, can easily identify with the Widow’s Son and his obligation to protect the secrets of Solomon’s Temple at the cost of his life, as well as the sacred resurrection.
What this entails is that The Craft is something far more profound than a religion, and originates from a time in lost antiquity from which all major faiths were practiced as one. It is therefore important to note that what is called Freemasonry is but the contemporary embodiment of The Craft, which has existed in secret throughout the ages under various names and practices.
