Some Religious Vocabulary That Is Actually Non-Existent in theBible
(Poor Translations Teach Shallow or Wrong Concepts)
“CHURCH” “Ministry” “Baptism”“Religion” “Pastor” “Prayer”“Christ” “Apostle” “Salvation”
While these words are commonplace in today’s Christendom, and thetranslations o the Bible that we have in our language do, in act, use thesewords, I’d like you to think with me or just a moment. What i the words thatJesus spoke to the multitudes, and the words that Paul wrote to the churcheso his day conveyed an entirely dierent meaning than that which we hear orread today? Te word “gay,” or example, doesn’t mean what it used to mean,does it? Te “gay nineties?” You get the point. Te religious system o today has (more by inheritance than overt deception, or sure) adopted a vocabulary o ecclesiastical (churchy), poorly translated, or “transliterated” words romthe Bible. Unortunately, these words do not represent at all what Jesus, orPaul, or the others had in mind when they spoke them or wrote them. As youread your Bibles, henceorth, try to hear what
heard, rather than hearingthese religious terms in their degenerated meanings o the present day. Deal?Look into it—it’s a un and challenging search or ruth.
