Visualised Religion

I do not endorse the following statement. However, I am collecting quotes on the subject in a study of eminent Masonic authors. This quote is taken from the introduction of the book "Freemasonry and the Ancient Gods," by J. S. M. Ward. The Introduction is written by the Hon. Sir John A Cockburn.

"The code of morality taught by Christianity can hardly be distinguished from that of Masonry. The new commandment of Brotherly Love is common to both. The difference lies not so much in the precepts as in the manner in which they are conveyed. Other cults communicate their lessons through the medium of written or spoken words. Masonry does so by means of symbols. It may be described as visualized religion."
