In my last post I explained the idea behind this series I'm calling "Church-Speak" Translated. Here's how I introduced the series:
"From time to time I have come to some realizations (at least in my own mind) about the way we speak as Christians in America. Sometimes we say things that don't make sense, are well intentioned or are just not true. The purpose of this post is to point out some of these things so we can be more aware of them. This post is not meant to be negative, just real so we can acrtually see what we do and how we act sometimes in Jesus' name. From time to time as things are made aware to me, I will post one of these "translated" sayings from our American church life."Here's the latest edition of "Church-Speak" Translated:
"God doesn't really want us to give away everything, He only wants us to be willing to give away everything."
"I really don't plan on giving away anything. I like my comfortable life just fine, thank you."
