We've got to love people for what they are, and not belittle them for what they aren't.
Patience with others is Love, Patience with self is Hope, Patience with God is Faith.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity
I Corinthians Ch. XIII v.13
"The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity. Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone."
Dr. Joseph Fort Newton –

The right to be wrong in matters of religious belief must be accorded. Otherwise we produce hypocrites instead of persons with enlightened belief that is fully their own.
the truth be mighty and God all-powerful, his children need not fear that
disaster will follow freedom of thought.
