We've had countless discussions on here about the religious colloquialisms and sayings that others say that we tolerate (e.g. many don't mind something like, ("I hope you get better soon - I'll pray for you", or something as simple as "bless you" after a sneeze). But what about the other end of the spectrum?

 

What are the xian, or religious for that matter, sayings that drive you crazy or get under your skin? For instance, here are a couple of mine...

  • When a religious person sees another who is down on his luck, or has had some tragedy, or is simply "not as good as" the religious person and they say, "There but for the grace of god go I". How pompous and sanctimonious, not to mention cruel and selfiish
  • Sports figures, actors, etc. who go through the histrionics of thanking god when something great happens to them. What, did god hate the other players/competitors?

You get the idea.

 

Can't wait to read your thoughts on this!

Thank you for feeling that emotion Steve. It's a powerful thought provoking thing to read isn't it?

It was just another time in my life when I looked at the sand, and still could only see one set of footprints. LOL.

They were yours.

I honestly don't know how I would react, and I hope I never have to find out. I'm sorry you were put through that.
