Globally renowned Neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf shared with Pastor Steven Furtick that Christian lingua (Christianese) phrases can become toxic strongholds that prevent believers from renewing their minds and putting Christian behaviour into practice. Instead, we recognize and repeat familiar terms without ever internalizing them, causing a schism between what we say and what we do.
Leaf says, “What you’re saying is coming from a toxic root, so it sounds good, but it’s not good, because it’s not a reality in your life. That causes brain damage.”
