Over the next few weeks, I will be posting things that I hear at church on a regular basis that I wish people would stop saying. They are not big, honkin', scary things, just little expressions that you hear frequently that just don't quite work. (Grammatically or doctrinally) So, as a service to you, I thought I would share them with you. As you know by now, I am deeply concerned - not only about the welfare of the church - but for the welfare of every individual saint.
• If you have suggestions, email them to me at email@example.com, but please don't post them as comments. No thunder-stealing s'il-vous-plait. (That's French for "I can delete")
If they are insightful, or funny, I will gladly expound on them and take all the credit. (OK, I'll give partial credit, but only if I didn't already have them on my list. My charity never faileth.)
To introduce this epic work, I have included a clip from Judge Maxwell in the classic 1972 comedy "What's Up Doc". I testify that this movie is truly hysterical. 39 years later. I actually remember seeing it at the theater as a boy, with my parents. One of my all-time faves.
"Stop saying that! Someone make him stop saying that!"
