    Have you ever wondered why some instructors are insistent about getting the work exactly correct? Wouldn't other words meaning the same thing work just as well? Read the following from the GCFL and decide.

    Sunday after church, a mom asked her very young daughter
    what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, "Don't be
    scared; you'll get your quilt."

    Needless to say, the mom was perplexed.

    Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the mom
    asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was
    about.

    He said, "Be not afraid; thy comforter is coming."


    :D

    Our Rituals are made for the Mason to understand, we teach our lesson's thru allegorical teaching's, if the Ritual becomes self explanatory to the point any one could read and understand it, we could possible lose our secrets ie.. tokens and other modes of recognition:pillars:.

    That’s not hard to answer, you get a word wrong and pass it along, and then someone else gets a word wrong, and before long who knows what it should have been.
    But I like the story.
