My thoughts? I think he hit the nail on the head in many of these. I think Christians often use words that sound spiritual, though they mean the same as a non-Christianese word. I think some people will get defensive when finding something they say on this list. I don't like it when people use Christianese to try and disguise the fact they're talking about things they shouldn't be. I think it would be hard to try and decode Christianese if you'd never been exposed to it.
So, did the list make you laugh or fire you up a little? Just curious.
