There are things we hear in the pulpit that sound uber-deeply complex, but like a time travel movie, the more we think about it, the more likely our heads will explode from sheer absurdity. Here are some incomplete half-truths we hear in church that need more nuance. Let’s be thoughtful.

Tell Him you want to know Him, here today – even though you’re a mess and you’ll always be messy. He’s waiting on you… what are you waiting for?”
