Based on my understanding: Freemason started out as a fraternity of intelligent and educated men coming together to share ideas, build, and contribute to society, and they had done this (should not take this away from them). However, over time, this fraternity and its members started to put themselves on a certain pedestal, and feel, based upon their collective knowledge, they have the authority and understanding to create their own beliefs/faiths outside of Catholicism and Judaism (pulling in from other sources such as paganism, gnosticism, mythology, hinduism, and so on), thus not compatible. Resulting in the Freemasons creating a “cult-like church”.
One cannot be a Freemason without indoctrinating themselves into their beliefs/faith; however, this group DOES NOT have the authority on divinity which governs this, that authority has been given to the Catholic Church (through Lord Jesus Christ) and Torah/Judaism (through Moses); thus, with regard to divinity - they’ll just keep getting it wrong and it will be detrimental to the soul.
Here is a metaphor, the Freemasons are a group of lawyers (some of the best) trying to learn how to perform medical surgery (heart surgery, and so on) from their law books (wrong source), and from time to time put what they’d learned (from their law books) into practice and performed a medical procedure - disastrous. But being that they are great lawyers they rationalize all they do as great - megalomanic, and convinced others likewise.
If the Freemasons just leave divinity alone, and focus on academics/science, things might just start getting better, because they do have a number of intelligent, talented, and influential members.
In summary, Freemasons turned into a cult-like church with erroneous beliefs/faiths.
