Dumb Christian Sayings
I recently got reminded of a common saying that Christians love when someone dies especially a child and they say "God just needed another angel." When I was younger it sounded nice to me but then I realized, is God up in Heaven looking down and trying to find a kid he can kill because he needs another angel? Can't he just make another one? Of course like most Christian sayings it's just dumb if you think about it too much but I just don't see how it can get worse than imagining God killing kids because he's got an odd number of angels and he likes to keep things even. Angel

A couple others I hate for example are "So and so is a God fearing Christian." Because why would you want to be around someone who doesn't fear the wrath of God and the prospect of going to Hell? Seems like a real great person to me, why do good because it's the right thing? Nope! Fear is all you need!

Another one is,"I will win this competition/game/whatever if God wills it." Yeah, because all those years of hard work and training to get here means nothing, it will only be rewarded if God favors you above your opponents for some arbitrary reason you'll never know because he's not going to tell you, what a great system! Thumbsup

What other dumb things do you hear Christians say all the time that make no sense or are just plain stupid/immoral?

Don't forget the classic: "God works in mysterious ways". The "get out jail" card of christianity.

Sort of in-line with your last one, but when they grant god due for something that was entirely the product of human knowledge and labour.

For example saying it is a miracle of god when an ill kid is cured by a physicians work.

Technically, dumb people don't say anything.

Your point is mute moot.

By far the most annoying: God (or Jeebus) loves you. On earth, god's kind of love generates restraining orders.

Plus anything that "passes understanding."

When I was a kid, my mother would say good night to me and I would say good night and then she would say, "See you in the morning," and she would not let me got to bed unless I said, "god willing." What a sick exchange and tradition. I wrote a blog post about it once.

God helps those who help themselves.

And the most annoying one for me: GOD BLESS AMERICA!
