"What think you, loving people, and how seem you affected, seeing that you now understand and know, that we acknowledge ourselves truly and sincerely to profess Christ ... addict ourselves to the true Philosophy, lead a Christian life, and daily call, entreat and invite many more unto our Fraternity, unto whom the same Light of God likewise appeareth?" - Confessio Fraternitatis
Q. Is Rosicrucianism evil or satanic?
A. Genuine Rosicrucianism relies on the power of God. It has nothing in common with the sinister practices of black magicians and sorcerers.
Q. Is the Brotherhood related to other Rosicrucian organizations and is it New Age?
A. While not passing judgment on other groups, the Brotherhood has no relation to modern forms built on the teachings of Freemasonry, "esoteric Christian," or New Age ideas.
Q. How old is your brotherhood?
A. The Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross is a living branch of the original Rosicrucian Brotherhood founded by Christian Rosenkreutz in 1407 and brought to America by Johannes Kelpius in 1694.
Q. Will your teachings work for me?
A. That is entirely up to you. It is, however, believed that everyone who enters the Brotherhood and stays the course will eventually achieve illumination, prosperity, happiness and greatness in life.
Q. How do I know all this is true?
A. Come and see! Find out for yourself.
Q. How much does it cost to belong?
A. To cover the costs of processing your application, we request a minimum donation of $55. "Dues" are a minimum donation of $25 per month. Over the course of a year, twenty-five dollars a month times 12 months divided by 52 weeks works out to $5.76 per week. Something anyone can afford. There are no additional "initiation fees" or assessments.
Q. What does it mean by a "minimum" donation?
A. This is the minimum requirement for all members. As you advance in Rosicrucian knowledge and begin to receive financial blessings and increase your income, it is customary to tithe or offer a tenth of what you have received so that God will continue to bless you.
