Email Tips: Teach as to Children

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, March 13th, 2010 .

Understanding your Bible should not be complicated.
If feedback says you are making it difficult you need to
change your approach. Try explaining it to a child.

Children have smaller vocabularies and less tolerance
if you misspeak. This forces you to explain new concepts
using simpler words or to define new words clearly.

Without simplifying the message we risk sounding
over complicated and convoluted.

Without condescending we need to speak clear and
plain to people if we are to make all men see the
fellowship of the mystery (Eph 3:9). We can not make
them believe, but If they can not see then we have
failed at our job.

Speak clear. Help them see.

For his glory,

Justin Curtis Johnson
