Having issues with someone in the Church can be one of the most painful, frustrating, and aggravating things in the world. It causes people to leave the faith, quit Churches, and curse both God and Christians to everyone they encounter.
Why do Church struggles seem so ugly and leave such lasting hurt?
Because the people who follow Jesus should know better
They should have read their Bibles and understand what God desires from them. They should be making changes to be better people who love their neighbors. They should be the best people in a community at love, compassion, and truth.
The people of the Church should practice grace, be kind, overflowing with love, and understand the need to value people over buildings, programs, or projects. They should reflect Jesus in their actions and attitudes as they handle people.
Every believer should know better.
That includes you.
