What Does The "G" Stand For In The Masonic Symbol

Mistakenly, many believe that the "G" has always been there in the centre of the Square and Compass. They also seem to think it means "God" and therein, we propose, lies the reason why in North America, many people think Freemasonry is Christian.

When we did our research by looking at 3,500 blog post comments (using our software) and 2,500 "tweets" on Twitter over a 6 month period, we found that 75% of people commenting on the "G" said it stood for "God".

The "G" is ONLY used in the centre of the Square and Compass in Canada, United States and Mexico. No other country in the world has a "G" in the centre. Unfortunately, there is some truth to the "God" part in North America where during the late 1800's and early 1900's, the "G" was used in many Masonic Lodges in the U.S. and was sometimes portrayed as "God" and sometimes still is. The real meaning is Geometry as a reference to the Great Architect of The Universe (which could be God, Buddha, Allah or whatever your name for a Supreme Being is [excluding Satan, Satanists are NOT allowed in Masonic Lodges].)

I know a number of Brethren who are Christian, Muslim and Jewish who do not particularly like the addition of the "G" in North American lodges, but it is there. Most Masonic Lodges simply refer to it as meaning Geometry. As Masons know, Geometry plays a vital role in architecture, music, the arts and everyday life.

  1. False!!!!! My grandfather was a Freemason in Northern Ireland and his Mason 'medal' or 'pin' has the G at the centre. Therefore, it is not solely a North American addition.

  2. Are you stating the whole article is false or are you riding off your GRANDFATHERS coattails because you had one piece of knowledge and that made you somehow believe you were educated in freemasonry?

    The question was - What does the freaking G stand for?!

  5. LOL' "good grief" would be a comment many would make...but most say 'Great architect"...but more likely Geometry. Which was it's original intent...while it may appear in some non-North American jurisdictions, that is exceedingly rare...I was in a Lodge in Mumbai and Dubai and there was no "G" similar in Lodges in Berlin, Norway, Sweden and France.

  6. Everything was stolen and. Rewritten from the black people that where off in Egypt which were the Egyptians. The white man has stolen and rewrote everything. The masons here today and from the 1800. They are all Lucifer worshipers. They are our presidents, our mayors. And the ones in Canada. The so called Queen ever heard of Albert Pike if you really care about your life. And really believe in a Heaven and a Lake of fire. And the Creator which who is is control of everything and everyone he just gave us a choice. And the choice is Heaven or The Lake of FIRE. AND FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THAT WHITE IMAGE OF JESUS CHRIST THAT THEY SHOW ON ALL THE PAINTINGS. HA YOU ARE BELIEVING A LIE. DON't LET THESE DEVIL PUPPETS CAUSE YOU TO LOOSE YOUR SOUL FOREVER. BECAUSE THEY DON't CARE ABOUT YOU AND THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT ME. JUST THE POWER THEY HAVE OVER YOU. I GIVE FORTH YOU THIS CHOICE OF LIFE OR DEATH. I SAY ON TO YOU CHOOSE LIFE AND LIVE. HE THAT HAS AN EAR LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAS TO SAY.

    1. I agree with a lot of things you said but, whether jesus was WHITE OR BLACK is not your decision. Jesus was born of Jewish descent ( a HEBREW) the word Yahweh was an Hebraic sound expression for the word god, when Jesus said he was not of this world he meant he was of god

  11. the powers that be want to be god over spirited souls created by god, by controlling your faith and the truth so they tell you that jesus was not god( pure goodness), for goodness sake ( for sake ) the bible has been tainted with coded scripts for this reason, so that you would be worshiping their doctrines, words are sounds and sound is vibration and vibration is frequency and frequency is energy and energy is love
