Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

While that may sound good to many people, it does not bear up under examination. Every word in the English language, in fact in any language, is a label. It is a label whether the word is for an action, person, thing or idea. We cannot communicate without language and we cannot communicate without words to identify what is being discussed. Man is a label. Woman is a label. Tired is a label. Poor is a label. Even evil is a label. Any word that we use is a label used to identify a person, place, thing or idea.
