Say What?

They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read. Nehemiah 8:8

CIB, DIFAC, EFMB, SQT, SIT, LAW, EIB, FAS, ORP, PB, CCP, PX, FOB and the list goes on. I listened to a sweet civilian lady in our Bible study describe how she first felt when listening to soldiers. She said, ‘They were all speaking in alphabet.’ We can make the same mistake with the Bible. Sometimes we can fall into a trap of explaining the scriptures with big religious words and it actually defeats the purpose. Try to avoid christianise (language only churched folk know) when talking to your non-christian friends. We need to use terms that even a Ranger can understand. Put the cookies on the lowest shelf. So the next time you’re tempted to say ‘Hermeneutics,’ just say Bible study. SP172
