MYW 4.7 PROBLEMS WITH CHRISTIANS

Here is one frame for the exercise that should capture all the feedback and experience and equip people to speak for the gospel.

I AM

I am part of the church. I apologize for wrongs we did/are doing.

I fail my own best, do you?

No one is perfect. No organization is perfect.

HYPOCRISY IS

Everyone fails their own standards.

Need to be disillusioned.

Does God set higher standards for us?

Pretending we did nothing wrong is worse than the original offense

INTEGRITY IS

What makes some failures acceptable and some screaming for revenge?

If Church sets itself up as ‘perfect’ or a moral authority, it deserves its fall from grace

Someone who can acknowledge and apologise has real integrity.

Christians confess their sin every week in public. Who else?

JESUS IS

Gave his most stinging rebukes to hypocritical religious persons

Reforms the church regularly with new ideas and values

Too loving to reject us for our wrongs, including our hypocrisy

Too holy to leave us that way, calls and equips everyone to be like him.
