Well, not a forked tongue, but you might not have guessed it yesterday. Maybe this T-shirt should have been my motto.
Sunday morning Bible study was great. We had almost full house, as we have recently been doing. We began with Matthew’s Gospel (11:15-19), moved to discuss language and history—good discussion. And eventually a question arose about the differences between the Christian faith and what Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW) believe and teach.
Yep, everything I said was correct and addressed to that question—except for one problem, I forgot to speak in English. Well, understandable English. My wife kindly reminded me of this when we got home. As much as I have stressed understandability in translations, I need to remember that applies everywhere, even in Bible studies! So I spoke in extreme Biblish… and yuck, the after-taste is not good.
