The language of Christians, and though I’m Christian, mock the jargon.
Why do we (christians) think and act as if there are special words like:
Praise the Lord
bless your heart
glory and other words,
that define the persona of a believer?
Why do Christians assume that anyone who doesn’t use this verbiage isn’t Christian?
Why do we assume that God only recognizes people who say these words and if anyone doesn’t use these words or phrases, then, this person isn’t a believer?
Are these words created by Christians so that we can recognize one another and if these words aren’t used somewhere in someone’s conversation, then understand and know, those beings aren’t Christian? Is there a subliminal identifying signal which says, “hey. I’m a believer, and they are to?”
Do we believe that God sent us a box of jargons, specialized language, slang, cant, idiom, argot, patter; newspeak, informal speech-babble, journalese, bureaucratese, technobabble, psychobabble; double-talk, doublespeak; gibberish, gobbledygook, blather (from apple dictionary), to use?
I’m just curios as to how this emerged and do all languages have their identifyable “Christian” talk.
