Christians don’t need another outlet to gossip. It seems that the worst rumor-mills tend to show up amongst Christian people. Unfortunately, Christian bookstores have become a place where Christians talk about other Christians and churches, of which they know nothing about.
Now, obviously, it isn’t the bookstore that is to blame for this, it is Christians. Instead of celebrating the fact that God uses and blesses all kinds of churches, Christians mock, blame, and judge people and churches they know nothing about. And, instead of going directly to the source to get the straight scoop, they talk and accuse and spew hate.
We are the Kingdom. Our mission is to work together to reach the world for Christ. It isn’t about my church or your church growing, it is about the Kingdom growing….Period.
