They’ve been around a while. Age-old quotes and sayings that represent truths. Or do they?
1. “The devil you know is better than the angel you don’t.”
Impossible, to say the least. A devil can never be better than an angel. It doesn’t matter whether you know one or not. It just can’t be.
2. “Rules were meant to be broken.”
Rules were meant to instill order. If they were meant to be broken, we simply wouldn’t have them, therefore there’ll be no rules to break. Where do we get all this stuff?
3. “To be a Christian is not to be a fool.
Wrong again. If we are God’s chosen, and He has chosen “the foolish things”, I think you see where I’m going with this…
4. “There is no fire without smoke.”
Ever heard of the word “Lies”?
5. “You can do all things.”
No. No you can’t. Really. You can’t.
1. “Love conquers all.”
The word “Conquer” is associated with ‘conquest’, or battle. Battle only ensues because of enmity. Love extinguishes enmity. Thus, the solution to every battle is love. It’s that simple, yet it isn’t.
2. “Doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result is insanity.”
Need I explain? You can’t keep “having an opinion of you own” and expect to be accepted, be it positively or negatively.
3. “Where there is a will, there is a way.”
Will will pave a dry road through the red sea. It is one of the most powerful forces in existence. He, or she, who will, does. Will is a force that makes impossibilities possible.
4. You can do all things through Christ…
Yes, you absolutely can.
