‘God won’t give me more than I can handle.’ And ‘God just wants me to be happy,’ are two of the lies that Christians have fallen into believing. How many times have you heard either of them said, and how many times have you said them yourself? This world is full of lies that are all too easy to believe and it can seem impossible to navigate what’s true and what isn’t. But, is there a way to know what’s true? On this week’s episode of indoubt, Shane Pruitt joins us to discuss 9 common lies that are often meant to comfort, but tend to do more damage than good. You’ll hear Shane and Joshua discuss some of them, discounting them with the truth found in God’s Word.
