Stabs in the heart

September 6, 2017 Leave a comment

I have a Christian friend who is currently inactive. It’s probably the best way to describe them that I can think of at the moment.

This friend comes from a multi-cultural background and has a different personality. They tend to be quiet in their approach.

Once, while working at a church school, “Christians” took this friend aside and criticized their personality, their ethnicity and told them that they needed to get right with God.

Still scarred from this, my friend tells me they love Jesus but see God as not a nice person.

It reminded me of what one athlete once said they felt they were over-criticized: “Everybody needs a kick in the butt once in a while, but no one needs a knife in the heart.”

Why is it in Christianity we cling so hard to traditions, even at the expense of hurting others?

Critics like that will have a LOT to answer for someday…
