After spending the past five years of my life studying theology it is difficult to not think about everything in life through that filter. Sadly, even though I am supposed to have mastered theology I find myself saying things that are not theologically correct but culturally normal. For instance:
“Let’s go to church”, “I go to church at ___”, or any other statement that defines church as a place or a building. Obviously, the Church is neither. It is not limited to a location; rather it transcends national borders, extends throughout time, and encompasses not a place but a people group. So how can one say these things better? Maybe say, “we are going to gather with other believers” or “we gather together to corporately worship at ____.” It may take a few extra words but the difference in meaning is significant.
So what theological slip ups do you find yourself saying?
