A Lesson in Grammar
Sins are verbs. If you committed a sin, then you did something. Maybe you lied. Maybe you drove 15 miles/hour over the speed limit. Maybe you stole your neighbor’s lawn chair.
Sins are verbs.
- Lie is a verb. Let’s use it in a few sentences.
- I prefer to lie when asked about my age.
- Yesterday I lied when you asked me if I liked your shirt.
- When you continue to lie, then lying becomes a bad habit.
- We can substitute another verb and still have good sentences. Let’s use the verb walk.
- I prefer to walk when asked about my exercise program.
- Yesterday I walked when you asked me how I arrived.
- When you continue to walk, then walking becomes a good habit.
- If the word gay was a verb, then it could substitute in for a verb and keep coherence. It doesn’t.
- I prefer to gay when asked about _____. (nothing would make sense)
- Yesterday I gayed when you asked me how ____. (nothing fits)
- When you continue to gay, then gaying becomes a ____. (?)
