Letters October 2014

Watch your language

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the headline on the October Journey. Are you so out of touch with the real world you no longer understand its language? But then, the Uniting Church has gone so far from the truth, anything should be expected these days! Ephesians 5:3 “But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or any kind of impurity!” I suggest you quickly discover the implications of “screw”.

The subject of the article advises “to be yourself” left out some very important words—be yourself “in Jesus”. We are exhorted to live life as Jesus would have us live, using him as our model. It is easy to make yourself popular using contemporary secular custom. Most believe, “I can go along with that.” It is amazing how easily people, who should know better, can be lead astray. Your headline is a good example of that leading.

    I was pleased to see the letter from Jack Waddell Paradise Point Uniting Church on page 18 of the November Journey. It was well written and I believe a good representation of the disappointment many congregations felt about the cover of the October Journey.

    The language used on the front cover was inappropriate and sent the wrong message to our young people that this kind of language is OK. It is sad that the blasphemous language of this world is now considered appropriate for the front cover of Christian publications.
