What is the best way for a Freemason to prove to doubters that Freemasonry is not evil?
By actually explaining what a Free Mason does and what masonic halls are set up for.
My father was a member of the Masons when I was a young girl. I have no memory of anything evil in my father's life. One of the sad facts of life is that people will believe what they want to believe about you and the things you do no matter what you do. If they set out to think or portray you as evil, they will most likely succeed for a period of time. The best way to prove anything in your life is the way you live your life. In the end, the truth stands firm. There are things about the Masons and Shriners that are questioned by society. However, these organizations do alot of good for society. Children's hospitals and other charitable efforts are among their contributions. We would do better to put more effort into protecting our children from the Twilight craze and the Gothic influence, than to be attacking organizations that contribute positively to our lives.
By make their private circle public. Secret meetings at secret locations only add fuel to the conspiracy flames.
Wow..What a bold question..The more you try to disprove it, the more the believers that it is evil will believe that it is evil, so in my opinion, you work with those who do not believe it is evil rather than trying to convince the other camp.
Open the doors and unlock all the secrecy to the various levels of learning and the mysteriousness of the Masonry rather than keeping it shrouded.
Just be, let be. You don't have to prove anything and the best is to focus on your life and do your best.

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?

Can you be a true Christian and a Freemason? Doesn't these two group serve to different Masters?Freemasons is a group that has been said to be connected to worshiping themselves and the dark side. Christianity is connected to worshiping Jesus the way the true and the light. what do you think?

What do you feel compelled to prove and to whom do you have to prove it?I had the lyrics of a song in my head for a long time (not the music mind you, just the lyrics). The concept of the song is about our individual need to prove something. Maybe I'm the only one. I realized,...
