9 False Statements Christians Say – And Why They’re False
Have you ever made a statement like “we’re all God’s children”? It’s a common phrase heard most often quoted by Christians (and those claiming to be Christians). The problem is that this statement is patently false. So why do Christians say something like it?
Some adages and cliches have become so entrenched in Christians and church culture that they get repeated generation after generation without much thought. But these statements are not just false, some are anti-biblical, and some lead people astray. So what are the most overused and unbiblical statements Christians need to never ever, ever, say again? Here’s the list:
- God helps those who help themselves.
- God wants me to be happy.
- We’re all God’s children
- Cleanliness is next to Godliness
- God won’t give you more than you can handle
- We all worship the same God
- Bad things happen to good people
- When you die, God gains another angel
- We’re all going to the same place when we die
If you want to read the commentary for each statement as to why it is false, I suggest clicking this link to read the original article. A shout-out to Shane Pruitt for posting this article as it is much needed for our education and edification. Maybe if Christians stop saying unbiblical things it will lessen confusion regarding the Gospel and what the Bible really says. In case you were wondering, yes, there is Scripture to go along with each statement showing why it is false and/or unbiblical. Read on friends, nothing but good can come from it.
