From Chaplain Mike at Internet Monk.

If only it weren’t too true …..

The thing about Christianese is that it really doesn’t translate to daily life. It’s insider code that excludes. Can you imagine Jesus speaking in order only to be understood by those ‘in the know’? Me neither.

Got any examples to share? (in a light hearted non-cynical way 🙂 )

Mine: ‘Lord grant ‘x’ a hedge of protection’.

      Matthew 13:10-13
      10The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

      11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:

      “Though seeing, they do not see;
      though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
