Its been a while since I posted something so I'm back full force and effect.
the issue I want to raise is: BACKBITING. what do you do when someone at the same church as you seems to have it in for you.
you know I have a had a few conversions with many people who are not Christians and most of the them their reasons for avoiding Christianity is because of the behaviour of other Christians.
I think the worst thing about church is the fact that it is filled with human beings. and we are imperfect. and because we are imperfect we mess up but God is graceful and will forgive when we repent, but what about those sisters and brothers in the house of God who are so soaked in their own self righteousness that they can no longer relate to the rest of the world. people who spend all their time trying to bring others down. The bible says that we are called to save the world and not to condemn them. A close friend of mine has left the church because of the constant gossips and bad actions of other so called "saints".
its terribly unfair. verbal murder is committed in churches all over the world because some people are not content with their own lives. we are called to rise above petty issues and to bless the earth. how can we possible do that if we spend all of our time fighting? do they not realise that this is another weapon of the enemy to stop us from achieving that which God has destined for us.
My advice: to those going through issues, hold on - God is your strength. To those avoiding church because of other Christians, my advice is stop looking at people and look at God. and to those who are deliberately causing issues - Repent!. There is always a second chance with God. Love your neighbour and stop backbiting. God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap. Galatians 6:7.
