Christians are such an easy target

The funny thing about Christians is how easy it is to criticize them.

The world, largely, thinks Christians think they’re perfect.

So when an imperfect Christian (which is all of them) does something hypocritical to core Christian values, everyone be like, “See, Christians need to shut up”.

  1. Jeff,

    It reminds me of a discussion I had with a person the other day who claimed the reason for not being a Christian or even attending a church is because the church is full of hypocrites. I said, “You are right. We all are, if the measuring stick is that we fall short of the goal. And trying to reach it in our own power won’t help; therefore, we need God. So yes, the church is full of hypocrites because we aren’t perfect, but those who are in church are trying to be more like Christ on the journey toward goal and trusting Him to get this imperfect person there.”

    Perspective is everything in this. People on the outside perceive that Christians think they are perfect. But a “true believer” (Phil Keaggy’s term for Christian ) realizes we are imperfect, will still make mistakes, and are in need of God.
