Question Clichés  (CL)

A cliché is a phrase or saying that every one says and generally agrees with without thinking. They are easy to spot, because of how often we hear them. Whenever a particular Bible passage has given rise to a cliché or become a quaint saying oft-repeated and printed on calendars, pretty pictures, posters and memorabilia, always pause to examine it. Clichés are not necessarily wrong, but they should always be questioned.
