I was recently asked by a Blember (blog-member) of this Blurch (blog-church),
"BP, what in the world is a Concordance?"
It was an excellent question; and it made me realize that there may be other "Preachery Words" I use on occasion that many of you are unfamiliar with.
As the magician said to his lovely assistant after the saw trick failed miserably, "My bad."
So in the interest of keeping everyone "together" on this stuff, let me define a few terms...
PULPIT:From the root word, pulpit-iote-me-wack. Which literally means: "to pull sinners out of the pit."
HERMENEUTICS:From the Presidential campaign of 2012.
Literally: "Herman's NEW idea" Even MORE literally: 9,9,9.
BAPTIZEFrom baptizo: to dip, to immerse, to plunge. See also: "Fun Stuff Preachers Like To Do."
SERMONThe most important part of a well-balanced breakfast.
A delicious addition to grits.
CONCORDANCE:I have no idea. I know it's not a Bible. And it's heavy.
As together we stand and sing.
