Suitable Proficiency

Posted by Bro. Trahan on September 24, 2010 at 11:24 AM

The subject of "what is suitable proficiency" when it comes to new candidates obtaining the 3 degrees of Masonry was brought up in our Sept. 18th meeting.  P.M. Pledger stated his opinion of what he thought suitable proficiency should mean.  I can't remember specifically what was told but I wasn't satisfied with his answer so I decided to do my own personal investigation of what suitable proficiency is in Masonry.  Here's my take on it:  Webster defines proficiency as " well-advanced or competent in any art, science, or subject; skilled."  Suitable is defined as "appropriate."  To me, this phrase, relating to Masonry, means that if a Master Mason does not know you are a EA, FC, or MM, you must be able to prove that you are.  To prove that you are, you must be able to prove you are competent.  The problems tend to come in because what is competent to one Brother might not be competent to another Brother.  I'm open for everyone's opinions on this subject.....
