Praise the Lord?

Just wondering... why do we so often say 'Praise the Lord' when greeting one another, when I cannot find one instance in the Bible of such a greeting? Instead, greetings seem to be along the lines of 'Grace and peace to you' or something like that.

I am not saying this is wrong. But why do we not greet one another more often in a Biblical manner?

Re: Praise the Lord?

Ate up w tradition...you don't greet one another that way then you're not "totally in"...getting real close but haven't quite commited wholy to the system, I mean the church


Preacher friend of mine always greets the congregation with "praise the Lord Saints(pause for reply)...praise the Lord again". I think he's trying to get everybody to do what they're saying.

Tradition.
Religious traditions of men passed on as a sign of holiness.

I do not practice this junk, but my parents did.

I don't care if it's in the Bible or not, no dude better try kissing me. Better not try to grab my thigh like they did in the OT, either.

Saying "Praise the Lord" has no "value," is "garbage" and "dung" to you? Surely you're kidding!

My friend, what do you think you are saying when you say "Hallelujah"?

Halleluiah
HALLELU'IAH, n. [Heb. praise ye Jah or Jehovah, to praise,that is, to throw, or raise the voice, to utter a loud sound; L. ululo.]

Praise ye Jehovah; give praise to God; a word used in songs or praise, or a term of rejoicing in solemn ascriptions of thanksgiving to God. It is used as a noun, or as an exclamation.
