Things with wrong names cannot be correctly understood. Everything must be named truthfully, accurately, precisely, so that people will not take phrases and bastardize their meaning and believe lies, perhaps without even being conscious of it. For the follower of Jesus the Christ of God, it is even more important than for the pre-Christian Confucian for names to be rectified, lest we all act of the basis of lies we do not know we believe. There is no sufficient mediator of true meaning without scrupulously accurate language.
My target phrase this summer is “the power of prayer”. I do not believe in such a thing, because it is unequivocally not the way that God portrays prayer in Scripture. Read of Elijah, of Elisha, of David, of Daniel. Had prayer any power of its own? See for yourself: there is none, because prayer is not magic. Attempting to magic harder will be of no avail. Because of this, I will speak no more of “the power of prayer”: instead I shall speak of God’s mighty faithfulness.
