Do you speak Christianese?
Sometimes the language Christians use to explain the faith and their religious experiences can be difficult. This happens, in part, because words and phrases which describe the central tenets of Christianity are unfamiliar to a Non-Christian world (trinity, substitutionary atonement, hypostatic union, liturgy, etc). We have our own vocabulary, and its important for us to learn it. However, in some cases, this problem is the result of unhelpful lingo that brings more confusion than clarity. Here is a thought provoking article that introduces a series by Michael Kruger examining our "Christianese"--the way we as believers sometimes talk about the faith, and whether those specific phrases are biblical or beneficial. Its challenging and convicting.
