Overused Christianese Words

Ok, there are words that have gotten completely worn out in Christianese. You know, every "relevant" "cool" preacher says them, all the time..


Unpack
Every preacher wants to "unpack" this sermon, this thought, these points, etc.

New words- what about unbaggage, unbunch, unbundle, unjam, unload, unstuff, untruss yea, I like Untruss.


Relevant
Way overused in hip Christian circles.

New words- applicable, apposite, apropos, germane, material, pertinent


Mega Church

New words to put before the word "church"- amplitudinous, astronomical, behemoth, big, colossal, cyclopean, elephantine, enormous, epic (NO THIS IS ANOTHER OVER USED WORD! SEE BELOW), leviathan, macroscopic, magnitudinous, mammoth, Olympian, pyramidal, pythonic, stratospheric, towering, tremendous, vast, vasty


Epic
yea, stop saying everything is Epic.

New words- see list above.


Ok, give me some more overused words from the Christianese language..

Also those are Culture Words, not Christianese. Christianese are words like saved, lost, redeemed, Amen...etc
