    Almost every initiate is led to believe that Freemasonry is a world-wide, a "universal" fraternity, which admits to its membership and privileges worthy men of every country, sect, and opinion. He also presumes that Masons everywhere are motivated by the same ideals and that fraternal intercourse is always and everywhere possible.

    Masonry and its friends are adamant in its opposition to freedom for other religions to compete with this now almost universal religion. Masonry is a religious organization: this is evident in the Apprentice Mason's handbook, and in virtually all Masonic writings, particularly MORALS AND DOGMA published in , which is used in all Scottish. In the original book it did not list the Landmarks. In , Albert Mackey defined what he throught were the 25 ancients landmarks. He also specificied traits that any and all landmarks should posess. These traits are: notional immemorial antiquity; universality; absolute "irrevocability" As previously stated a Grand Lodge can reconize any.

    ESSENTIAL SECRETSThe essential secrets of Masonry consist of nothing more than the signs, grips, pass-words, and tokens, essential to the preservation of the society from the inroads of impostors; together with certain symbolical emblems, the technical terms appertaining to which served as a sort of universal language, by which the members. In his book "Speculative Masonry" [3], A.S. Macbride defined our Landmarks as "certain established usages and customs, occupying the position which usage and custom do in a community" namely, similar to 'common law' in a political system. These Landmarks are similar to civil laws but they differ in one respect: they were adopted by a Grand Lodge.

THE DIVISION OF SYMBOLIC FREEMASONRY INTO THREE DEGREES’s is a Landmark that has been better preserved than almost any other, although even here the mischievous spirit of innovation has left its traces, and by the disruption of its concluding portion from the Third Degrece, a want of uniformity has been created in respect to the final.

Masonic landmarks are a set of principles that many Freemasons claim to be ancient and unchangeable precepts of Masonry.
