Should a Fifth Gospel be added to the New Testament?
Date: 11/24/2018 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Tom Simota
Synopsis: The Gospel of Thomas is a collection of 114 sayings of Jesus that was discovered in 1945 in Egypt. Could this text present compelling evidence about the life of Jesus which has been derived from a variety of sources in the East, including Buddhism, which are unknown to most Western scholars? Masonry helps points the way to the realization of the Inner Light, just as the Gospel of Thomas may direct the spiritual seeker to the Indwelling Divinity. Lets explore if adding a Fifth Gospel to the New Testament could be a stepping-stone to a deeper awareness of the Truth that guides to set us free.

Is a New Archetype for the Mystic emerging?
Date: 12/29/2018 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Pamela McDown
Synopsis: Do Mystics have to live cloistered lives to be effective? For centuries, it has been the belief that to find Divinity (in the deepest sense) requires a life of contemplative solitude. Though not denying that there is a measure of truth to this, are times changing? Author Caroline Myss uses the phrase “mystics out of monasteries.” The idea suggests that a mystic may have an ordinary life, a family, a partner, a profession - and yet simultaneously seek to develop a mystical interior life. Do we think that mystics in the coming age are coming out of their cloistered existence? Please join us to discuss mystics of the past and present day and how the mystical path is similar to the path of a Freemason.

Should certain books be banned from the public?
Date: 1/26/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Bro. Isaac Levy
Synopsis: America prides itself on the First Amendment, the freedom of speech. However, the American Library Association receives hundreds of complaints annually for certain books to be banned due to offensive ideas, sexually explicit content, or racial context. Many countries have books banned as well. Should certain books be banned from the public? Does this protect society or oppress society? Would Freemasonry, being an institution that fosters learning, advocate the banning of certain publications from the public? Are there certain Masonic books that are banned from certain people?

Is Deism Really Atheism in Disguise?
Date: 2/23/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Bro. Kris Wilson-Slack
Synopsis: Deism is the belief that while God exists and he created the universe, He has since been a hands-off being. He is the clockmaker that has no need or want of adoration; He has created the world and it need no longer to concern itself with His presence. Deism, created at the time of the Age of Reason values the mysteries of Science and Nature to explain the world. Much of what the Deist values are also valued by the Atheist - a strong sense of morality, a foundation in science and reason, and no need for organized religion. Freemasons value science, nature and God; concepts which, to either the Atheist or Deist, may seem at odds with each other. Yet, Freemasonry accepts Deists but not Atheists. We’ll discuss the similarities and differences between Deism and Atheism and determine if these two are closer in belief and nature than they first appear.

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
