THE PURPOSE OF FREEMASONRY
Is Freemasonry Losing its Purpose? Should Fraternity of Freemasons take a more active position on the hot political and social issues of today?

July 8, 2008 – (I-Newswire)
New York, Tuesday July 8th, - In his just published book "The Purpose of Freemasonry", Masonic scholar and Freemason from New York, Stevan V. Nikolic proposes that three million Freemasons worldwide should use their institutional structures and financial power for promotion of the humanistic and positive solutions to the hot political and social issues of today.

"The Purpose of Freemasonry" was published by CreateSpace on June 18th 2008. In it, Mr. Nikolic examines various aspects of the concept of Freemasonry. Why is Freemasonry a religious organization but not a religion? What is its connection to the mystical and occult schools? How Masonic charities work? Should Freemasons put their moral teachings to the practical use and voice their opinions on the hot political and social issues of today? What is the future of Freemasonry? Mr. Nikolic gives surprising answers to these and many other questions.

Mr. Nikolic says: -"Freemasonry is relevant as much as the actions of Freemasons are meaningful. For three centuries Freemasons were in the forefront of the positive social changes in the world. Washington, Garibaldi, Bolivar, Churchill, F D. Roosevelt, Truman, and many other famous Masons worked hard for the advancement of their countries. Critical decisions that they made in their times still affect us now. Freemasons of today should learn from their forerunners and act. They should use their ethical teachings not only for their own benefit but for the benefit of the societies in which they live. Giving money to charities and at the same time being on the sidelines of the social issues doesn't justify the existence of the fraternity.
Freemasonry is the oldest and largest international fraternity. They define themselves as a "brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of a Supreme Being". Religious in its character, but not a religion, Freemasonry asks of its members to be "faithful and dedicated" to the religion of their own choice.

Discussions on the politics and religion are not allowed at their meetings. There are an estimated 3 million Freemasons worldwide, and more than a half of it in the United States.

Stevan V. Nikolic is the author of several books and articles on Freemasonry published in the United States and Europe. He is an active Freemason (member of the Consolidated Lodge No.31 in New York) and Editor- in Chief of Freemasons Press, Independent Quarterly Review on Freemasonry
