    1. “God wants me to be happy, therefore he’s OK with my sin. He is a God fo Grace, after all” 
       
    2. “It is so old fashioned to say I have to get married before moving in with the person I love.” 
       
    3. “God told me that I should quit my job and join the circus, and I won’t listen to any godly counsel from anyone else because I’m totally convinced God told me to do this.”
       
    4. “How I live out my Christian beliefs is between me and God, so whether or not you think I’m sinning is none of your business.”
