Dear junior: I would like to discuss the use of modern communication today.
Much as your peers like the term “idk” (“I don’t know” in short), I believe you do know a lot of stuff. There is no need to say ‘idk’ to your elders, especially those of ancient ages. It is actually more ‘in’ to say, “I know.” Many people say “idk” as they really do not know. Why should you be like them?
You see, people of ancient time are not concerned with “idk”. When it is time to say “yes”, they say “yes”. Otherwise they just say “no”. It is a simple way of communication. All they need to do is to know what to say, to whom, and at what time. Unlike today’s people, the ancients are wise and yet not complicated. Most of their wisdom comes from the Bible. They read their Bible and believe the words of God as truth. They live contented uncomplicated unpolluted lives. Jesus says, let your yes be yes. The ancients follow closely this golden advice.
You may want to know why it is important to say what we mean. One good reason is many people do not say what they mean and Jesus calls them hypocrites. When Jesus calls someone hypocrite it means bad news for that person. No, it is not cool to be a hypocrite. Many people could not stand Jesus because He tells the truth. His yes is amen.
You can of course say you don’t know when you really don’t know. When you know just speak out. We need young people to speak out today. No more a vague “idk”. To be honest, “idk” is the only “modern” communication terminology I know. Well, I shall learn another one when we next meet…
love in Christ, the Ancient.
