So many of us have been hurt by Christians. Is there a solution and a way to make the hurt not happen again?
When Bad Christians Happen to Good People shows ways to help those who are hurting. It also discusses ways to show those who have done the damage what what they shouldn’t have been doing.
Topics discussed are:
- How churches are unfriendly towards its own members.
- The use of fear to try to gain new members.
- Christians using their own languages to talk to unbelievers.
- Strength in obedience to God.
- The knowledge on how to get rid of legalism and moralism.
My thoughts- This book is needed in today’s society as so many people are leaving the church, because of the Christians within.
We need to let the sinners in. We need to make them feel welcome. I’m glad that I go to a church where I am welcomed for who I am. I would like to go to different churches that are not “sinner-sensitive churches,” so I could help them from the inside out. I want all of God’s children to feel welcome, not just the “perfect” ones.
“Fear-based Christianity” and speaking to unbelievers using the Christian language is not the way to go. People who try to gain followers that way really make me shudder. They really need to read this book.
All Christians and nonbelievers need to read this book, because we would understand what needs to be done and how to do it. Please find a copy.
