A Texas pastor asked people why they don’t come to church. The #1 reason?
We’re stuck up, judgmental, anti-homosexual, non-thinking hypocrites.
It’s not that people outside the church have low expectations of Christians. It’s the opposite. They expect us to actually live out the things we proclaim on Sunday. They expect us to love our neighbor, care for the least of these and love our enemies.
They have high expectations for us, and we have disappointed them. Instead they have been insulted, hurt and broken by us.
Thanks for sharing the article, Landon!
Is there any way to read the end of this post without subscribing to The Lutheran magazine?
Jill, let me see what I can do.
