Re: A challenge!
Firstly, my definition of good and evil:
Good: selfless acts, truth, justice - Acts of the light
Evil: Careless or thoughtless acts, cruelty, inconsideration, selfishness - Acts of the darkness (not the band)
The Entered Apprentice Freemason seeks light. NOT lucifer the light bringer, but light.
OK, Next, Alistair Crowley was NOT a Freemason. DeMolay is NOT a UGLE recognised craft, therefore not true Freemasonry.
And the Oxford dictionary definition of a cult, well one of them at least, is:
Cult (n) An exclusive group of persons sharing an esoteric, usually artistic or intellectual interest.
So to argue semantics, you are correct in that.
To discuss the Brotherhood. It IS expected that a brother helps another brother EXEPT where that help is either: Contrary to the laws of the country or detrimental to the wellbeing of others. Breech of these two rules is frowned upon to say the least.
