Using big words…

Have you ever wondered why people use big words when little ones are sufficient?

Maybe big words make people feel knowledgeable, intelligent or superior?

Here are my new big words for the evening Simul justus et peccator. This is actually Latin, but who but the most avid scientist could translate this without Google?

Apparently it means that a Christian is at the same time both righteous (made right with God) and a sinner. Which while a mind bending concept is actually something that you can read and understand at a surface level :).
