What if, in fact, the Bible teaches the opposite? Many with a shaky foundation of biblical knowledge confuse something that “sounds like it came from the Bible” with actual biblical truth. "Cleanliness is next to godliness"—is that really in the Bible? "Spare the rod, spoil the child"—does the Bible actually say that? Discover the truth for yourself in this fascinating, easy-to-read study that reveals the truth and error behind some of the most popular sayings of the day.
