I am a student at a Christian College where I have been hearing the term "Christianese" thrown around a good amount and as well as hearing actual "Christianese" words and statements being used daily. It got me thinking: "How do non-Christians and new Christians understand this stuff?" -- I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when i was 6 years old and many of the common Christianese statements used on campus here I do not fully understand. So, I did as most do and asked google. The answers that I found literally brought me to tears. There are so many people who have been deeply hurt by Christians and from misunderstandings of Christianese statements spoken to them. It is my desire that this resource helps Christians and non-Christians alike to understand the true meanings of Christianese words and phrases.
Christianese is a language used within the Christian subculture. It contains words and phrases that apply and only make sense to persons who have spent time in or around the followers of Christ.
