They are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might even find in the Bible:
- Everything happens for a reason
- God helps those who help themselves
- God won’t give you more than you can handle
- God said it, I believe it, that settles it
- Love the sinner, hate the sin
We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth – yet they also miss the point in very important ways.
