Faithful & Scholarly Testimony

In A Time of Crisis & Chaos

crisis – "the decisive moment (as in a literary plot); an unstable or crucial time or state of affairs in which a decisive change is impending; esp. one with the distinct possibility of a highly undesirable outcome; a situation that has reached a critical phase."1

krisis – Greek word for 'judgment,' esp. the act of judging. That can mean 'deciding,' but its usual meaning in the New Testament is pronouncing a sentence upon the guilty. Krisis is the word most often used in the New Testament for God's 'judgment.'
