File under “Inane”

Regular readers will know that I am not impressed with the tendency of the modern church to reshape and redefine vocabulary. I’m working on a post for next week about the issue, but here’s a little taste of how language seems infinitely malleable to these cutting-edge leaders.

From Brad Cooper’s Twitter account this afternoon:

‘Very Good’ is Very bad…. just go ahead and BE GREAT!

BCoop, you can’t just invert language. What is the difference between very good and great anyway? If very good is very bad, what is very bad? (Note to self: that may explain how very bad language is treated as great.)

Good and Very Good were good enough adjectives for the Creator.

I suppose we postmoderns have every reason to be bored with them now though.
