There are many more common sayings which are expressly not found in Scripture but have biblical sentiments such as, “spare the rod, spoil the child.”

However, the highlighted ones are worryingly questionable which have become common place and believed amongst professing Christians.

These are things which no Christian living by the written word of God should accept as Truth.

They might make some sense in some situations but should not be taken as principle or an instrument to measure the verity of any situation.

“…‘This people honour me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!” (Mark 7:6-9)

There are so many more but the above are a few but let’s keep in mind a principle for determining what is fable and what is truth:

“TEST ALL things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

  1. “A problem shared is half solved”
  2. “Marriage is not a bed of roses”
  3. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” “Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:18  
  4. “Forgive and forget”
  5. “Do it as long as you’ve prayed and have peace about it”
  6. “God won’t give you more than you can handle”
  7. “This too shall pass”
  8. “Be true to yourself”
  9. “People don’t change” “First impression matters most”
  10. “It’s not in the Bible so we can’t speak on it”
  11. “Rest In Peace/ Heaven just gained an Angel.”


“The Christian God is always looking for people to save.”

– S.O Olatunji

“The only liberty a saint has is the liberty not to use his liberty.”

– Oswald Chambers 

“Never confuse the trial of faith with the ordinary discipline of life, because a great deal of what we call the trial of faith is the inevitable result of being alive.”

– Oswald Chambers 

“To read the Bible according to God’s providential order in your circumstances is the only way to read it, viz., in the blood and passion of personal life.”

-Oswald Chambers 

“The words of the Lord hurt and offend until there is nothing left to be hurt or offended. “

– Oswald Chambers 

“God’s purpose is not simply to make us beautiful, plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He may squeeze the sweetness out of us.”
