Speak with a forked tongue?

Well, not a forked tongue, but you might not have guessed it yesterday. Maybe this T-shirt should have been my motto.

"understanding things is overrated"

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.

I hope the Bible class participants will forgive me. Next week will be more understandable. So this coming Sunday I will address the question in a better fashion—and it will be understandable!!!SmilieFace

    I can’t for the life of me figure out what you’re referring to. I was there Sunday, and I thought the explanation you gave was very understandable, credible. No problems here!
