Rhetoric - Feature Image
Posted On 02/02/2015


Church people seem to have a vocabulary all their own. Have you ever heard a word like  “righteousness”,  that seemed so stuffy you involuntarily yawned? Have you ever heard a term like “Holy Ghost” and thought, “That’s spooky! I wonder what it means?”  Maybe, the lingo of Christians is just so “churchy” it leaves you feeling like the Bible is just a bunch of out of date mumbo jumbo.
If you are new to church, this can leave you feeling like you are on the outside looking in. As you look around the room you find yourself asking, “Is anybody else getting this?”
However, understanding some of these concepts is absolutely vital. These terms are persuasive, emotional and life changing. Yet, if no one knows the rhetoric, these words are without power and meaningless.


We want everyone to understand these key concepts with absolute clarity.

Even lifeless instruments like the flute or the harp must play the notes clearly, or no one will recognize the melody. 1 Corinthians 14:7

In this two part series, we give these terms an updated translation so that you can follow along with the melody. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the rhetoric.

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
