and yet another glossary term...
Hey, remember "work's trip"... if you didn't do something "in the spirit" you were on a "work's trip". Rolling Eyes

Good one. Smile


(By the way, what about keeping the glossary term recommendations in one thread?)

Good idea!
Sounds good... which tread, though? Razz

glossary terms thread
OK - that sounds good - this could be the "glossary terms thread" - those are always fun - laughing at the stupid, Evil or Very Mad idiotic sounding TF/COG speak language they made up.

News snoop reminded me of the one about being "in the flesh" - we were "in the flesh" as opposed to "in the spirit" if we did such things as "vain babble" or watch "system" shows or listen to "worldly" music.

Of course, it was a "work's trip" if we got too holier than though, but if we didn't then we were "in the flesh" - I could never reconcile that one.

That's a good distinction between the two terms. And "vain babble" wasn't yet listed in the glossary (I just added it)...thanks!

By the way, anyone is welcome to help write definitions for these terms. All red links in the list don't yet have an associated article.

no problem
any time - I'm still pretty much brainwashed with all those terms. I still catch myself using those old terms and have to consciously think about what I'm saying or shouldn't say. Like saying, "thanks for 'sharing' that (as in relating a story) with me. Or using "sharing" for having sex. Every once in awhile, we'll crack up laughing over using an old term from TF. They still slip out somehow.

All these articles. Some are so contraversial. Aren't you afraid of the "Romans"?

Here are three more
These may already have been posted but... remember:

1. going through it ("it" is a trial)
2. on guard (of course against the enemy's attacks)
3. (in the) dumps (according to the ML... it's discouragement) Mr. Green

Flesh the toilet?
My "flesh" family. My "flesh" mother! I'm a "flesh" Jew. You're seeing things with your "flesh" eyes. You're "leaning on the arm of the flesh." Yep, that's right. I have a body and there are people who are biologically related to me.

How about this phrase...
"keep it in check"... like stay on guard about your weaknesses... don't let yourself stray too far...

I've heard that phrase in use outside TF both in business and casual environments and would tend to think that its meaning is widely understood.

Family material
Remember when we were looking for new disciples, someone could be rejected if they weren't "family material"?

So that means...
all of us FGA's were "Family material"??? Ooooo it makes my skin crawl. I also remember looking at our catacombers and sort of discerning if they were "children of David" or not.
What was that quote... it's not enough to love Jesus, but you have to hate the system as well...
So in our search for "bellwhethers" we had to find those people who were sick of the "system' and could stomach the unadulterated pure words of Berg.

God forgive me. Embarrassed
