    Very good article from Dr. Mohler on the relationship between Christianity and "words".

    Here is a snippet:

    I thought that was a great article and thank you for sharing it. What we say and confess has to have meaning or there is no point in saying that. I am not a philosopher or linguist so I do not think I am qualified to talk about things how words get their meaning, but just as a matter of Christian ethics I think we need to get back to calling men who confess one thing but preach another liars. It is a lie to take a vow, as it means to you and not the larger community. We are told to let our yeses be yes and our noes noes, and that applies when we publicly proclaim to be one thing but are in fact another. As a culture we have subbed out swearing to the moon and stars, to swearing but to our meaning.
