Fifty Cent Words
One in "Christian" circles uses alot of fifty cent words and phrases and tries to "Christianese" (Christianese means use them in a spiritual sense but really sometimes don't add to the conversation and dialogue) them.
Here are a few terms I've used in a class for Wednesday nite on vocabulary.
I. Theology - The pursuit of God.
II. Bibliology - Study of the Bible.
III. Anthropology - study of man, sin and death.
IV. Christology - study of the work and person of Jesus.
V. Soteriology - study of salvation.
VI. Pneumatology - study of the work and person of the Holy Spirit.
VII. Eschatology - study of the end times.
VIII. Ecclesiology - the study of the church.
There is importance to the study of things and words but in reality it is best to keep things simple. Use non-Biblical words sparingly. Language is something we use everyday and should be something in which we convey the message of God in such a way that from the complex to the simplest of people can understand God's Word.
