Why Bible Teachers Should, Like, Care about Proper English

“Should we split infinitives? Can we say ‘to boldly go where no one has gone before’?” A sharp teenage girl in my church recently asked me this.

Great question. How do we judge what is “correct” English, anyway? And should Bible teachers even, like, care?
