Churchtian Phrases that don't make sense

`Worship Leader` in the context of who ever happens to be leading music... the theory supposedly being that worship and music are synonymous. (again more sheep mentality but that's not elaborate on here)

`Slain in the Spirit` doens't make sense. the Spirit doesn't `Slay` people, He blesses and loves them, and I've yet to find a biblical comparison to every evangelist's favourite trick of pushing people over

`God has a plan for you` in a very Rawlesian context that you're supposed to be inspired that God, before this proclemation, was indifferent to your life and doings.

Revival In the context where there never was a vival in the first place (not a great annoyance I must admit, but again, Christians adopting words for themselves just regresses them one step further towards `religion`. Oh that's another one...

Religion In the context of an insult.

Back Slidden For someone who doens't go to church as much. `Back-Slide` isn't a verb! And doens't make sense as a compound word structure to be construed as one. It'd be like me saying to someone, `ooooooo, he's awfully holy regressive`. Not that, it's also a bloody annoying thing to say about someone, it's an excuse for churchtians to gossip about other churchtians without using the phrase `he's not as Christian as he used to be`, and lo, the judgement and gossip of the situation is lifted.

`We're going to have a time of worship` You see, for the grunt Christians they worship for about forty five mins a week on a sunday morning, but the Christian intellegensia worship in a cell group as well so they worship twice as much. Me, I was working so much in sixth form, I missed church for about three months, so I went a quarter of the year without worshipping. That's back slidden indeed!

Revival Fire What!? Stop using two out of context words and trying to trade mark them! Unless you count this - but still doesn't make sense in that the Twelve wern't reviven.

Awesome (see last sixth months of blogging below)

God is in the House To distinguish between that and the times when our omnipresent God finds Himself waiting at the door wondering which deacon has the key.

    God has a plan really annoys me when people say that, how is it remotely inspiring? God has a plan for everyone, it's not a word of knowledge from God for the person you're praying for, it's blatent fact!
