Sorted?

SORTED?

Is it possible for two people to say the exact same thing, using the exact same words – and yet mean something different?

It is.

“I believe in God”, says person A. “I believe in god”. says person B.

First question: ‘What god would that be?’

And if it is not the same god – then although they are saying the same thing, they are making two completely different statements.

One way to sort this – is to know the name of the god they believe in.

But if I tell you I believe in God, and your god is not my God, then when you click the ‘like button’ on reading my remark, you do so probably with your own god in mind.

And if the God I refer to, is not your god – you have hit the ‘like button’ by mistake.

Outcome: Misunderstanding.

Outcome: We are not in agreement.

Good I’m glad we got that sorted out…

  1. Sometimes someone new will give me a like. I then check his or her page and realize there is no way they could have agreed with what I wrote. They’re probably just trying to pick up followers. Anyway, I agree with you, Ken.
