Here are some common modern day fallacies about Christianity:
Righteous acts do not make a person righteous.
Jesus did not come to make bad people good. He came to make dead people live.
When I sin it is not me that sins, but sin that dwells in my flesh.
Reading the Holy Bible isn’t the same as studying.
Religion says do. Jesus says done.
It’s not about religion it’s about relationship.
God loves you unconditionally.
Baptism is just a public display of faith.
These fallacies may sound true, but in your heart and that nagging part of your mind – you know something just isn’t quite right about these statements. Pay attention to those feelings, keep exercising your discernment.
Fine tuning comes from experience. Reading the Holy Bible is study and through it you can learn the difference between right and wrong. Recognizing a half truth or wishy-washy statement can save you grief in the future and protect and strengthen your faith.
