Ever have someone say awful things about you behind your back? Or do awful things behind your back?
A place we don’t expect this to happen is in our church, but it does.
You may have been told “there is no perfect church” in order to frame the situation for you.
You may have seen your situation minimized as you, the victim, are expected to forgive – while the perpetrator continues their devices.
More may be expected from you.
Backwards, isn’t it? Sometimes it seems as if political correctness has infiltrated our churches.
It is true there is no perfect church.
It is true you must forgive (more on this Friday).
It is not true you aren’t allowed the space to be hurt. Sometimes the table is turned on the victim. Why?
But there is no perfect church.
