A few years ago I did a video called 5 Words a Christian Shouldn’t Say in which I suggested that our speech can be lazy sometimes. Maybe even more repugnant than swear words are words that express something contrary to our faith. What we say matters.
Unfortunately, there are many phrases that fit this bill as well. As common and seemingly religious as they are, things like “Jesus take the wheel” doesn’t stand up to much scrutiny. When we ask ourselves, “Is this what I actually believe?” the answer is almost always “no.”
And so, in the spirit of that first video, I offer five Christian clichés that we need to eradicate from our everyday speech.
