    To Leslie on 'stuff' - Michael C. was right. Also, the word 'stuff' is not slang. Also it's from the 1700's KING'S ENGLISH. There is no better English. Also, 'stuff' was translated from the O.T. Hebrew. We say, oh, it's just stuff ....; that's not a slang word. It's a 'general, all inclusive term.

    When studying the Scriptures, there are some basic reference tools that everyone who really wants to learn, should get accustomed to using. Regardless of one's modern education level, it is vital to understand the meanings of the words used by both the inspired writers, and the translators of the Bible. A Strong's Concordance w/ Hebrew and Greek Lexicon; a College Level Dictionary; and EFFORT!
