Three big ol’ fake-Christian aphorisms

open-windowRead this from Religion News Service. Nowhere in the text does it say:

Everything happens for a reason.

God won’t give you more than you can handle.

Hate the sin, love the sinner.

About that last one, from the link:

Instead of loving others because you perceive them to be sinners, perhaps you should focus on loving them despite the fact that you are. If we all learn do this, perhaps the most damaging cliches in our collective vernacular will slowly be replaced by more gracious, life-giving–and yes–biblical words.

  1. Hard to argue with Adam Hamilton. Not impossible…but hard.

    I wonder if he sent a copy of his book to Clinton.
