Neither.

It is a figure of speech, not a statement meant to be taken literally.

Being a non Christian it doesn’t really bother me and is just a figure of speech at the end of the day

The details are important, leaving them out could be deadly. That said, how you say it doesn't matter, it matters only about paying attention to them.

It's a useful phrase. I use it.
Maybe it's a bit of a cliché?
