Why is nearly every radio evangelist using the word “unpacked?” Who started this trend?
“I am going to unpack this verse.”
“Let me unpack this word.”
Can we just explain the text? Can’t we just offer more details? Can we just say what this verse means? Can we stop unpacking?
It is time to retire “unpack” just like we need to retire the phrase, “thrown under the bus.”
“Unpacking” is not original. It is a tired, worn out slang that suggests the superiority of the evangelist over the congregation.
