Temple Of The Body

To the Master Mason, the Temple of Solomon is truly the symbol of human life; for, like life, it was to have its end. Masonic teachings are not intended to convey a historical fact concerning the erection of a building, but ever to keep in sight, the beauty of that temple as a symbol of life in which he should live as a man and Mason. — ( St. John 2:19 - 1 Corinthians 6:19 )
