How do I join the Freemasons, what criteria is there for joining

To join the Freemasons, you will need to meet certain criteria and go through a process of application and initiation.

The specific requirements for membership can vary slightly depending on the jurisdiction and the individual lodge you wish to join, but in general, the following are some of the typical criteria:

  1. Be a man of at least 18 years of age (in most jurisdictions)
  2. Believe in a Supreme Being or higher power (the specific nature of this belief may vary)
  3. Be of good character, with a reputation for honesty, integrity, and morality
  4. Have a genuine interest in the fraternity and its principles, such as brotherhood, charity, and self-improvement.

To begin the process of joining, you can reach out to a local lodge and express your interest in membership. The lodge will typically invite you to meet with members and learn more about the fraternity, and may also ask you to fill out an application form.

After submitting your application, you will go through an interview process and be subject to a background check.

If you are accepted as a candidate, you will then go through a series of initiation ceremonies, which will involve learning about the symbolism and teachings of the fraternity and participating in various rituals.
