Our society's educational and other media has chosen to MISREPRESENT the actual beliefs of our founding fathers. That is intellectually dishonest. I was pleased to hear what Washington thought in Washington's own words -- the intro is written by somebody else, obviously.
I was also fascinated by the fact that George Washington as a high level Mason was a believing Christian, and he apparently saw no clash between the two. I think that Masonry is often a reflection of the beliefs of the men who participate in it. It is, as far as I understand, an organization which welcomes men of differing opinions who choose to behave responsibly. A man should believe in a Creator God to be a Mason, but Masonry is a fellowship of Christians, Jews, and others.
I know a great many people consider Masonry to be incompatible with Biblical Christianity. I see that George Washington had a different opinion. And there is no doubt at all about the depth and Biblical nature of his Christian faith. Many of the references in his prayer diary are references to the Bible's teachings. You do need to be familiar with the Bible to realize that.
I have found this book to be an excellent piece of primary source material. I highly recommend it. You don't have to become a Bible believing Christian to acknowledge the fact that George Washington was one and to respect his faith. I am a Bible believing Christian. You don't have to be one to be intellectually honest about historical facts.

Once again Christians scramble to try and claim historical people of prominence as being through and through devout members of their clique.
Its well known through Washington's own verified writings and speeches that he was a Deist , and more obviously holding Deist views of The Creator mixed with sprinklings of Unitarian Christian ideas.
This publication makes out that Washington was a devout, through and through Christian, speaking and praying always of Jesus Christ and Christological beliefs. This is just not the real case.
Washington hardly if ever mentioned Jesus or any other clear Christological beliefs in any of his writings and speeches.
This book also includes the ''Washington Prayer book'' which conveniently has day to day prayers which are full of Christological fervour, mentioning Jesus, The son of God, Salvation and Israel multiple times in every prayer. This was already proved to be a fraud, Washington never prayed or even spoke like this after his very young age.
