Nigerian pastor quote I saw


Well-Known Member
I've never thought God owed me anything. What he gives me is a gift, not something owed. I wonder what exactly this pastor meant by that. Maybe his meaning is something different than what it leads me to think.
Exactly what I was thinking...I even gave Romans 11:35 I believe but the person responding was pretty convinced this pastor is the real deal.

I think it was an attempt to create a memorable phrase that would stick in your head-- playing "owe" off of "own". Unfortunately, in finding a clever "rhyme", the pastor (or whomever he heard it from) went for the rhyme at the expense of true doctrine. Sadly that happens too much in the world of preaching.
