The unsectarian character of Masonry is also implied in the era chosen on the title page: The prevailing opinion at present is, that from time immemorial, i. The texts of and of the fundamental law concerning Atheism are purposely ambiguous.
The title Ahiman Rezon has been often said to be of the Hebrew language and variously mean “to help a brother”, “will of selected brethren”, “The secrets of prepared brethren”, “Royal Builders” and “Brother Secretary”.
By his oath the Master Mason is pledged to maintain and uphold the five points of fellowship in act as well as in words, i. The principal Templar systems of the eighteenth century were the system of the “Strict Observance”, organized by the swindler Rosa and propagated by the enthusiast von Hundt; and the Swedish system, made up of French and Scottish degrees in Sweden.

In ancient times the masons were charged to comply with the Christian genearl of each country where they travelled or worked; but Masonry being found in all nations, even of diverse religions, they are now generally charged to adhere to that religion, in which all men agree, leaving each Brother his own particular opinionthat is, to be good men and true, men of honour and honesty, by whatever names, religions or persuasions they may be distinguished; for they all agree in the three great articles of Noah, enough to preserve beneral cement of the lodge.
