Precision in terminology

Last nighty at our first Lenten Study I was asked by an educated, intellgent, bible-literate, parishioner:

    Was Jesus part of creation?

This brought home again to me that terminology in theological discussions, and definition of these terms, is a critical issue. (Maybe I am just too post-modern and try to define my way out of any argument?) So: was Jesus part of creation?

Terminology needs to be precise in all our discussions, especially when we discuss difficult and heavy theological and philosophical issues.
