God gave us His teachings in His word. It is not our job as Christians in our postmodern world to apply new meaning to His words. To do so in light of scripture is to twist or add to Gods Word.

Unfortunately Phil Pringle is a master of manipulating words and meaning in the bible. At the same time, his idea of a ‘correct’ definition can help other Christians understand what he is talking about.

Please feel free to use this translation key when talking to people from C3. This may help you lead, teach or give C3 goers a greater understanding how to understand their own pastor. This article will be updated to inform readers Pringle’s various new definitions of key words in Christian language.

GRACE is…

“This is the grace (unmerited favor) of God – if you are in Christ, you have fulfilled ALL God’s requirements to bless you.” – Phil Pringle, http://philpringle.com/2009/11/01/blessed-not-cursed/, 01/11/09. (Also found at http://philpringle.wordpress.com/2009/11/01/.) (Later accessed 01/07/2012.)

“God’s favour and God’s grace are interchangeable.” – Phil Pringle, Connect Group Notes: Favour,  02/05/2010.

TRUTH is…

“The key to truth becoming real is faith.” – Phil Pringle, SEVEN BIG THINGS That Make Life Work, Baptisms, pg. 71.

FAITH is…

“Faith is positive.”– Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith And Prayer – Speak It, 2001, pg 73.

“Faith is like courage & confidence, abandonment, uninhibited, unintimidated, fearless, fearless believing – all of those things are what faith is. A positive mindset, confidence and courage in your heart. Thinking big, not thinking small.” – Phil Pringle, Ps Phil Pringle: Get Ready For God, http://www2.myc3church.net/2003119ampp, Sermon (AM), 20/03/2011

“Faith is a spirit. It is an attitude. It is confidence in the heart.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 12.

“Faith is knowing something that no-one else does.” – Phil Pringle, Faith,  Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 12.

“Faith is a feeling” – Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 21.

“Let me say this to you. Faith itself is a feeling.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 21.

Faith is an attitude you have within you. – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 22.

“The source of faith is the Word of God.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 14.

“Faith is the collateral of heaven. It is what you use to trade with in heaven.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, Faith Is A Feeling, 2001, pg 13.

“Faith is the master key that unlocks all of heaven’s doors. It’s the collateral of God. It’s the currency of heaven. Without it, we are unable to purchase anything from God. He issues the invitation, “Come, buy wine and milk, without price, without money.” How do we buy without money? With faith, that’s how.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 53.

“Faith is a creative force. When we operate by faith, we employ the creative power of God.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 66.

“Faith is seeing what can’t be seen..” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 98.

“Faith is like an additional sense. A spiritual sense… Thus we walk by faith, that is, an inner substance, an inner reality that cannot be seen by anyone else. The conclusion is that we don’t wait until we receive a thing before we believe that we have it. We get it before we get it.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 56.

“Faith is the major key that opens every door in the Kingdom. It is a master key. Therefore it is imperative that we understand the ways of faith. Because these keys are the ways of God the natural man cannot receive them. They are spiritually understood. They are foolishness to the natural man. When a gift of the Spirit operates. Then we are able to impart that gift to others and teach them how to function in it also.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 58.

“We believe that we have the answer to our prayer before our five senses tell us so. The Amplified Bible interprets Hebrews 11:1 as “Faith perceives as a reality what is not revealed to the five senses.”

Faith is like an additional sense. A spiritual sense… Thus we walk by faith, that is, an inner substance, an inner reality that cannot be seen by anyone else. The conclusion is that we don’t wait until we receive a thing before we believe that we have it. We get it before we get it.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 56.

WORD OF GOD is...

“When we have no room for the Word of God in our lives we have no room for success.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 14.

“There is a direct correlation between the measure of God’s Word in our lives and the measure of prosperity we enjoy.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 14.

“The Word of God is none other than Jesus… When we speak the Word we are speaking Christ into that situation… ” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 90.

“The Word of God is the power of God unto salvation. This means that Christ and the Word of God are one and the same.” – Phil Pringle, Faith, 2001, pg 91.
