What topics are covered in Masonic Lectures?
Masonic lectures cover various aspects of the moral and spiritual teachings of Freemasonry and explanations of the symbols. Some portions of the lectures are conducted in the form of questions and answers, as part of the proficiencies, or memory work. For example, this section is from Entered Apprentice degree memory work:
Masons are admonished in ritual to hope for eternal life. The Moslem, Hindu, or Mormon Mason is encouraged to hope that he will go to heaven, even though he does not have faith in the Biblical Christ. (See John 14:6)
Another example, from the Master Mason degree memory work, also deals with charity:
Masonic charity is directed toward Masonic recipients in many cases.
