-saying there is nothing good on tv and should get rid of it and then don't
-people saying “yeah yeah” while you are talking to them about abortion YET they disagree
-when you send text to multiple people and everyone gets their reply
-“married or the equivalent or living as married” option on forms
-crediting the act of prayer and not the One prayed to with the “results” of prayer
-professing followers of Christ casually referring to things they do as addictions/making light of sin
-when texting, asking “what?” instead of looking at preceding texts to remind yourself what was being talked about.
