Skip to comments.[Devotional] God Exalting Grammar
Posted on 10/02/2010 9:02:36 PM PDT by streetpreacher
This is some of the most Biblical God honoring passionate moving language that I have ever heard from a preacher of His Word... and I catch just a glimpse of not only God's glory but our place in it... delighting in the glory of God... and working to produce that joy in others.
Can you make this a devotional thread? This wasn’t put up to provoke any kind of debate. But I didn’t know how to mark a thread “devotional”.
God says it all.
well, you haven’t been moved until you’ve heard it in Latin.
In principio erat verbum, et verbum erat apud Deum. Et Deus erat verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud deum...
My kids and I learned John 1:1-14 last year with our Classical Conversations group. It was fun.
If you like rap, which you may not, check out http://www.theplumblinecollective.com/
Semper Reformanda Vol 2 has rap with John Piper as a bed/background. It’s nice if you like rap. Piper tracks include “Everyman” and I think “Justified”
the download is free.
I’ve actually heard some Reformed and Christian rap that I thought was pretty good.
I’m dying in Classical Greek this semester... I hear Latin is even harder.
Thanks for that ping. I’m an idiot for not thinking to ping the Religion Mod.
I've never had a class (I'd struggle in an English class). But I can see from what I pick up in Mass (and in the culture, esp. in legal matters) that it is a beautiful, in fact, the most beautiful, proportioned, verbal embodiment of logic available to man.
As a language, it's only one order of magnitude short of music.
What will people think when they find that I'm a Jeee-zus freak?!
I actually dug John Ruben, back in the day when "Christian" music was all I listened. In the '90's, it was some of the most cutting edge and creative music going, from rock and roll to hip hop to alternative to folk. About the opposite of everything popular Christian music had been up to that point.
Unfortunately, I had to drop the classical Greek class... not happy about that at all. I have been in way too much pain to be able to sit for any period of time and do the work of memorization that is required for any language class.
I probably won’t be able to pick it back up until next Fall as I don’t think it’s offered in the Spring (due to being sequential).
I hear you on the English. One of the things I struggle with in Greek is accents and breathing marks, simply because I never got any of that stuff down in English to begin with.
