So very often when doing a presentation of Biblical truth the preacher / speaker will say “I am just going to …….” I would encourage all, including myself, who is no doubt a culprit here as well, to resist such phraseology. But why?
The “just” word gives the impression that what is going to be presented is really quite insignificant. By saying “just” you are colouring your words with a sense that they are not of any great importance. The “just” word indicates that it is something we can quickly get through and you need not bother too much about it.
The thoughts of insignificance and trivia should never be attached to biblical truth and so we should avoid the use of “just” because it leads us in that direction.
