Are You Guilty of Using any of These 10 Christian Cliches?

Oftentimes, we’ve grown up using these phrases that just come naturally. But, what do they mean? They can cause such confusion or create a level of inauthenticity. Let’s stop using these Christian cliches.

1. One of the most common Christian cliches — “Bless Your Heart”

Everyone knows this really means, “Well, that was a stupid move, but you’re not really self-aware enough to see it.” Or, some lead with “Bless your heart…” right before dropping a bombshell or insult.

2. “I’ll Pray for You.”

Of course, this can be super meaningful, but many times we just use it as 1) conversation filler, 2) conversation ender, or 3) a way to sound spiritual.

If you say this — MEAN IT! And make sure and actually pray. And, be sure to text the person occasionally as you pray. This helps communicate your commitment to pray.

3. “I Don’t Feel Led”

Be honest, you probably just don’t wanna do it. Don’t use this Christian cliche as the Jesus-card to get out of doing something unpleasant. Ponder, pray, and listen for what you are being led to do. Feel free to share this with others to help keep you accountable.
