Etymology and God's Word

January 22, 2019
By Mr. Kobes

At our most recent school assembly, Mr. Kobes talked to the students and staff about the importance of words, and why we as Christians need to pay especially close attention to the words we read and use. We were encouraged to remember three things:

Words are important.
Choose your words wisely and know when to say them.

Words are specific.
Read the Bible knowing it’s a translation, and recognize the benefit of multiple translations.

Words have significance.
You wear the name of Christian. Ensure you are acting in accordance with that name!

Discussion points:

1.    Why are words so important that the Bible would repeatedly discuss taming the tongue?

2.    What are some benefits of reading the Bible in multiple translations? What should we consider when reading the Bible knowing it’s a translation?

3.    What does it mean to "wear" the name of Christian?

4.    Why are we called Credo Christian and what are we called to?
