Most of the Bible speak we use isn't really understood by non-Christians.

"You must be born again", for example, confuses normal people. Think how Nicodemus felt. The Bible gives examples of what it's like trying to have a spiritual conversation with a non-spiritual person. Break it down in plain English (or whatever language you speak) and it'll help people pick it up a lot faster.

I really find these phrases are a bit of a peeve for me. Especially, "let go and let God". I call this churchanese.
They are a church version of babel. I dislike the babel of the world, and the world is babylon, the church should not be.

And "via con Dios" is "go with God."

Ok sorry to be a wet blanket. I know this is supposed to be fun.
So I will say that I do have a favorite. When the Pastor pronounces the forgiveness of sin in the name of Jesus. He sometimes will say. "go in the peace of God".

I like how you've drawn a distinction between Christians and "normal people" :ROFL:

LoL! I just realized how that came off. In my defense I think I was thinking of something like the "unspiritual natural man" like in 1 Cor. 2:14:

14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Not my favorite, but one that has been around awhile and is false. "Cleanliness is next to godliness"
Why is it false? If you broaden the meaning of cleanliness to include spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical cleanliness, then it is very fitting. Jesus said:
Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.
(John 15:3)

Because I've always heard it used in relation to taking a bath or shower i.e. the cleaning of the body. I've never heard it used of spiritual cleanliness.

“Just accept Jesus into your heart.”
A fine example of the message being lost in translation.

What is a heart, do you mean the organ that pumps blood? How can Jesus enter into it? Those are kind of questions I've heard for that one.

Accept him for what? Who is he and what did he do?

" I was saved by the finished work of christ "
What does this mean ? When Jesus said " it is finished " we were not regenerated .

" Nothing but the blood of Jesus " I get the point ,and i like the song ,but is it high resolution? What about the resurrection?

" Hes the same today, yesterday and forever "
Whenever someone points out a difference or a transition in the bible thats not applicable today.
