Use of the word Problematic

March 31, 2008

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord just a short comment here.

The use of the word problematic is being tossed around a lot in Christianity today often lets look at the actual meaning of the word.

From Wikitionary-

Adjective

problematic

  1. posing a problem; difficult to overcome or solve
  2. debatable; open to doubt
  3. unresolved or dubious
  4. doubtful or uncertain in its outcome

People that know me know Im pretty much a black and white person because I base what I believe in the roots of scripture. In the world of apologetics and discernment ministries of the Body of Christ (or those confessing to be part of the Body of Christ) the word problematic is tossed around more often than not.

If you have the Holy Spirit leading you into all truth things should be pretty clear to you. We know these are times of great falling away and deception so you need to stay rooted with your feet deeply grounded and rooted in Gods Word.

That is the only way you will be able to avoid the deception that is here there is even deeper deception to come.

So do I find the use of the word problematic to be problematic because its being tossed around by some apologist’s today?

No because satan said in the garden in Gen 3: 1 “Did God really say…

And 2 Timothy 4:3 states ”

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (New King James Version)(NKJV)

3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

So we should not be surprised that the use of the word problematic is used often even with some alleged apologist’s to lessen the danger or to raise that little bit of doubt in your mind about factual information.

Peace

Tim
