So every week or two I've been tweeting a banned Christian phrase. Someone asked me to collect all my banned phrases in one place. So here's the list so far:
- "hedge of protection"
- "rethinking church"
- "praise report"
- "the center of God's will"
- "love on"
- "love well"
- "Jesus is the reason for the season"
- "God will never give you more than you can handle"
- "God showed up"
- "a God thing"
Can you think of others?
To qualify as a banned Christian phrase, think of something Christians say a lot that either makes no sense to people outside the church, or is said merely because it's the cool, hip, trendy thing to say, or has appeared on sentimental framed prints in the local Christian bookstore for years...or is simply untrue.
If we want to impact our culture, let's use truthful and sensible words.
