And we wonder why people are skeptical of “the church?”
And here’s the really crazy part of all of this: When Christian leaders like yourselves look around incredulously and ask why people are exiting and disowning the Church in massive numbers? It’s because of this. It’s junk like this. It’s leaders like you. It’s the testosterone-fueled hubris you perpetuate that makes following Jesus a really tough sell for those who witness it. There’s a profound disconnect between the ministry he was building and what this is, and people can see it from a mile away.
