Someone is going to jump to a conclusion about this episode before
they even hear it, all because of the title I chose. And they
will be very embarrassed with themselves after they discover what
I'm actually talking about - as opposed to what they thought it
Clue: I insist on keeping this podcast as something that anyone and everyone can listen to, and I'm proud of my "clean" rating.
Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about what this episode is actually about. It's about a word which might possibly the most mis-used word in the English language. That is especially unfortunate, since it is so often batted about when religion or spirituality is a topic for discussion.
Most words have a definition in a dictionary, but some fit one US Supreme Court justice's description of pornography: "I know it when I see it." And that is perhaps the situation here, once you get past the rhetoric and grandstanding that goes on about this particular word.
And once you have a grasp of what that word really means, you might be surprised at how much of it you actually do have. You might have more than you thought and if you do, you'll be very glad of it.
So, what is this special word that I've got you so curious about?
Listen to this episode and find out!
