Volume 2 of 2. One of the purposes of this series of lectures is to display the true design and tendency of the Order of Freemasonry. True Freemasonry forms no part of the national religion, although it does teach the genuine principles of Christianity. Because of this fact, Freemasonry is often vilified and objected to. These detractors generally intend to show that Freemasonry's pursuits are inconsistent, frivolous and useless. Another purpose of this work is to rebut such absurd charges and set the record straight.
