OPEN REBUKE IS BETTER THAN SECRET LOVE…Proverbs 27:5
Unfortunately as much as we like to witness or do the new thing “recruitment” for the church. People have stories and some like to always have a rebuttal for those who are disenchanted with the church. I let them vent! Those of us who understand the frontlines. They know that there are a lot of us who have had some bad experiences with the church. I don’t sell…Jesus! I lead by example.
Ministry today needs a lot of transparency. and with accountability. Meaning we need to be honest and say that it is what it is… and the church contains many unsavory elements inside the church. Yet, it should be the place to be free… but we have bullies and terrorists inside the church which can be bondage! I am not ever the one who steers clear from correction.
I don’t bother with the church shenanigans no more do I believe you have to a place to sit and moan for Jesus. Yes, I understand “the wailing” wall. But lets admit… some of this stuff is just sheer foolishness. So many things are based on generational ignorance and non biblical that have been passed down. I don’t mind traditions as long as it doesn’t interferes with God and common sense.
The prejudices inside the pews still exists . However, I should be able to go to any church a House Of God in the world… and be comfortable but I am NOT! We all know that many have rules and regulations and make you so uncomfortable that you wont return.
If you are serving the same God that I am serving the “welcoming mat and committee” should be there with open arms instead of criticism and self-righteousness.
You shouldn’t be belittled, … If you don’t wear certain garment, or article of clothing, or you don’ t wear make up, or you don’t believe in women preachers, women who have muscles. I hear some of the craziest things within the church walls. The list can go on forever and so does the ignorance!
Yet, we are so misinformed about the love of God…People can’t handle what our differences are. God has a “blueprint” that so many of the places of worship fail to follow. Yes, the church deals with all kinds of people and behaviors but it’s the KINGDOM minded people who mature.
We don’t want to recognize that there is some unappealing behavior with our own church community. If you want to see some of the most hateful people go to church. I have no idea what the purpose of going to church and you don’t want anything from God. Religious routines don’t exempt you from being rebuke. Terribly, I am still encountering some of most insecure, immature suppose to be Christians. No one wants that kind of Jesus.
Just in the days of Christ they are still gathering together just like thug street gangs….trying to figure you out and to take you down. Well , if you spend that much time on your own imbecile behavior you wont have that much to time to judge and hate on others. REALLY?
Do we have to wonder why people are always bitter in church? You know what I learned about people who are intimidated by others they have to be joined at the hip with people who act just like them…They live to find the ones who want more in life and God to be jealous of. When you find them outside their gangs they are not functioning….only in fear when they are alone..They will carry a cup of bitter and tear people down with lies and insinuate and incite others to be just as cruel. And this is all based on their forms of bigotry!
It’s still happening and it’s time we address just how many are in church who are not maturing in God forget about how emotionally handicap they are. Young, or old, rich or pool, educated or uneducated they procreate among themselves.
There is nothing more disheartening than seeing grown people who were bullies as children and are still bullying as adults. Do we have to wonder why we have so much violence and angry children?
Look no further, try make a heart felt assessment as if bullies really do that!
