“Bridging the Gap”

Categories: GRAB BAG

I know I am an old guy, but just when I think I have heard everything, I come across the title to yesterday's question. What in the world is “The 411 on the Bling Bling”? Don't keep me in suspense!

Sincerely, Old As The Hills

Dear Old As The Hills,

We here at AYP attempt to answer Bible questions with all seriousness… but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun from time to time. The headline you are referring to is from this post. The title is based off of everyday slang of the younger generations. ‘411’ is a way of saying ‘the information pertaining to’ and ‘bling bling’ is a funny way of referring to jewelry. We thought it might be a pithy way of referring to the question about wearing gold. Since it seemed obvious the question was asked by a younger person, we thought a catchy slang title might be funny. As cultures and language change, it never hurts to be ‘all things to all men’ (1 Cor 9:22)… not to mention that the title made us laugh really, really hard!
