“And I am convicted.”
Why do I never hear this word other than in “church speak” … ?
And why does church-speak seem to make that statement its very own evidence?
“I am convicted so I am right/it is right/we are right. And you should be convicted too. If you search your heart I know that you too will be convicted. I have the proof – my proof is that I am convicted. So just why isn’t that proof enough for you?”
an unshakable belief in something without need for proof or evidence
“And I am conviction-ed.”
an unshakable belief
without need for proof or evidence
Is it just me – this use of “church speak” to make “an unshakable belief without need for proof or evidence” into a good thing simply because it is “church-speak” which means it is “all the proof we need” in holding an unshakeable belief (that requires no proof) –
Or does anyone else find that just a little scary?
