Are spiritual urban legends messing up your faith? A spiritual urban legend is a widely believed spiritual idea that isn’t necessarily true. These beliefs or trite phrases are repeated so often that we assume them to be biblical and true. Until life proves they are not. Often given as quick answers to hard questions of life, spiritual urban legends can lead to feelings of betrayal, distrust of Scripture, and loss of faith. Each week the rest of the summer we’ll expose a harmful spiritual urban legend on our way to discovering a truth upon which we can anchor our lives.
