I Never Said That
Just because you’ve heard it a thousand times or even believed it yourself doesn’t mean it’s true, especially when it comes to matters of faith. Yet many of us continually buy into spiritual urban legends and Sunday school myths that although sound good on the surface actually erode our faith and keep us from living the life God intended.
