It’s disturbing.  The articles and posts these days that find fault with nearly everything Christians do.

It’s trendy.  Social media rants and click-bait titles such as:
“10 Things Christians do that are Totally Annoying.”

It’s expected.  For unbelievers to attack Christians in this way.

It’s heartbreaking.  When the writers are Christians themselves.

It’s unfair.  To see good and faithful believers wrongly characterized.

It’s hurtful.  To read generalizations that condemn fellow believers.

It’s perplexing.  No other group seems as judgmental of their own members as Christians.

It’s backwards.  Critical statements written by Christians that denounce Christians for being too critical.

It’s illogical.  Hateful posts written by anyone denouncing anyone else for not showing love.

It’s true.  Christians are not perfect.

It’s reality.  No one is perfect.

It’s necessary.  For us to challenge each other in our spiritual lives.

It’s unnecessary.  To do so in a manner that brings disgrace to Christianity.

It’s possible.  To rebuild the reputation of Christians and support our fellow believers in all ways.

It’s written.  We should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.  Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.  (Galatians 6:10; John 13:35)
