This Week's White Horse Inn

The Preached Word

According to William Willimon, Christianity is kind of like a foreign language that one is not born with, but must be baptized into. Unfortunately, many preachers today are attempting to "translate" the faith into familiar and comfortable terms that people are used to, but the result, he argues, is that things get "lost in translation." William Willimon, author of Peculiar Speech: Preaching to the Baptized, joins the panel on this edition of the White Horse Inn.

The reason that we use terms like justification, propitiation, sanctification and many other Biblical terms is: 1. It is a much more precise description of a key Christian doctrine. 2. When you are able to use one of the Biblical terms, it enables the hearer to understand quickly, without us having to explain the concept for 15 minutes.
