Practical Theology Discussions: Freemasonry in Christianity — Is there room on the pew?

Practical Theology Discussions: Freemasonry in Christianity — Is there room on the pew?
This is an anti-site from the Southern Baptist Church. My response to them:
I find it curious to deny a Christian access to a congregation to worship Jesus, who would turn away no one.

Reading your analysis, which was very in-depth, I must agree with earlier responders. Freemasonry is not a religion, and it is not encouraged to be practiced as such by it’s members. Some have compared it’s purpose to that of a religion, but it does not come with a theology.

the beauty of Freemasonry, and this is where you may argue, is that it does allow men of ALL faiths to come together under the divinity of GOD. What does that men, essentially, no man proselytizes to other members to convert, subvert, or convince them to whom they should worship.

Perhaps with that in mind, the SBC is likely an intolerant host in that they could not agree that other religions have a right to believe what they believe. Would the SBC say that Jews are wrong? Are Muslims wrong? In that argument, are the only ones right the SBC and those who believe what they think? Where is the scholarship in that?

Looking outside the narrow box of what the SBC tells you to believe, there is tolerance within it. There is tolerance in Freemasonry, and they would still come to your door to worship.
