Can you join the Freemasons online?
Unfortunately, we get asked if one can become a Freemason online from developing countries in the sub-Saharan region, and by some misfortune, the idea is that once you become a Freemason, you will instantly become rich, powerful and famous.
This stems from wrong information about Freemasonry where one of the most common myths is that all Freemasons are rich and powerful.
Yes, there have been many Freemasons who become successful and there were even Kings and US presidents in the Craft, but that does not mean all Freemasons become rich through their connection in the craft.
Freemasonry is a charitable organization that requires you to “spend money” rather than earn it so if you’re one that believes becoming a Freemason will make you rich, prepare to be disappointed.
Please Do Not Send Any Money!
We have received “spam comments” on our website that if approved by us, would make you believe that just by calling 1800-ILLUMINATI will instantly make you a freemason.
It just doesn’t work like that.
How To Become A Freemason (For Real)
We have talked extensively about this and shared some valuable tips on our guide on how to become a member.
Freemasonry is a secretive society with a deep history in rituals and traditions.
You are not going to be able to join the freemasons online seeing as how the process I just described just cannot be replicated in the digital realm.
Also, being in a Masonic lodge surrounded by all your brethren is one of the most amazing benefits off Freemasonry so even if you could join online, I wouldn’t trade my experiences of going through my first 3 degrees for anything.
I really do hope this post has answered your question and please; if you want to become a Freemason, do it through the right channels and through a recognized Lodge backed by a Grand Lodge. Here’s a list of recognized Masonic Grand Lodges.
Unfortunately, not all countries allow Freemasonry this so I understand your frustrations if you come from a country where Freemasonry is frowned upon but do not believe you can join the freemasons online and whatever you do:
Never, ever send any money to somebody claiming they can make you a member.
If you have any doubts, please let us know and we’ll look into it further, but there’s an incredibly high chance that it will all just be a scam.
