Sermonette: A Pure Language

Calling on the Name of the Lord
#1286Bs

Given 14-Sep-15; 18 minutes

Description: (hide)

Zephaniah 3:8-9 foretells of a pure language. The problems of language do not derive from syntactic, morphological, or phonetic considerations, but instead from the depths of the heart. The lips are defiled if the heart or mind is defiled. Charges emanating from sundry groups affiliating with Hebrew roots or sacred names mistakenly feel the purity of a language is innately embedded in pronunciation patterns, which are still a matter of speculation and guesswork from reconstructed dead languages. It is impossible to know the pronunciation of the early languages. The Bible was written in Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek, with none of the tongues holding exclusivity for purity or sacredness. Culture has defiled Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew, English, and every other language on earth. A pure language is a function of vocabulary emanating from a pure and undefiled heart. Any language on the face of the earth would be an acceptable candidate for a pure language if this criterion were met.
