Masonry’s Only Fight
by Ed Halpaus
By Dewey H. Wollstein, PGM of the Grand Lodge of Georgia
The work and hope of Masonry is to bring the spiritual nature of man and the spiritual nature of the universe into a harmonious balance. There is forever in Masonry the sound of marching men and the beat of drums. There are the determined faces of men who are fighting in a great cause.
But the enemy of Masonry is not sought for in rival camps. Masonry does not point out an enemy lurking in every dark corner. Nor does Masonry take up arms against this or that organization or institution which may differ in their interpretation of the meanings of life and of the universe. Rather does Masonry lay emphasis on the reasons that bring all men into the realm of Brotherhood.
Masonry’s one and only fight is for the supremacy of the nobler man over the baser. The victory of the good that is vouchsafed all who strive for such a victory is all the “spoils of war” that Masonry seeks. The triumph of Brotherhood is all the “rich territory” that Masonry hopes to gain.
Masonry has but one weapon. That weapon is the true and tried Mason who in the struggle to make himself more God-like becomes more man-like. As he progresses toward God he becomes more tolerant, more forgiving, more loving toward all mankind.
