Here are five popular Christian clichés that are not biblical:

“You’re never more safe than when you’re in God’s will.”

Insofar as the safety here is eternal, or means something like “in the right place,” this maxim is gloriously true. Almost every time I hear it, though, the person is referring to physical safety.

Years ago, as I was preparing to become a missionary in a closed country, a few well-meaning believers assured me God would protect me from harm since he had called me.

Jesus seems to disagree:

You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you they will put to death. You will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But not a hair of your head will perish. (Luke 21:16–18)

Some of you they’ll slaughter. You’ll be entirely safe. Huh?

These promises sound contradictory, but they’re not.

If it is controversial, it's got my attention. Growing up, God seemed to be the one topic that was unspoken, and I needed to know the truth. I discovered Him in my 20's, and really started finding tremendous evidence for Him that had to be shared. Supernatural miracles exist today, and He speaks to His people today. Yeshua has given us prophecy to strengthen us in the days ahead. Find your victory in His strength. Connect with me on Facebook, or feel free to email me (michaelandmeranda @ g mail .com)
