Don’t Let The World Change Your Words

Have you noticed how the world is trying to change and redefine your words? Words and language are powerful. Words have definitions and those definitions are important. One of the ways to transform culture is through the transformation of language. Old words are cancelled. New words are created. The culture “demands” that certain words be used and others stop being used.

In this episode Dr. Rob and Amy Rienow discuss the importance of holding firmly to words and meanings which are important for the Christian worldview. Choosing to use language that speaks the truth in love is an essential ingredient to being a light for Christ in this dark world.
