Church people mess up. Christians mess up. We mess up JUST LIKE anyone else. Being a Christian does not make someone perfect.
I’m not even sure why anyone ever started thinking that way.
If we were perfect, then there wouldn’t be any need for Jesus’ Blood to cover us or for Him to have died for us.
Jesus is The One who is perfect; not Christians.
People are people.
People sometimes say, “Well, I don’t go to church because there are hypocrites at church.”
Yes. There are.
AND there are hypocrites at the grocery store, school, the gym, the office, the bar, and everywhere else you go.
The enemy WANTS you to give up on church and the whole idea of “church.”
You still go to these other places even though there are hypocrites there.
So please, please don’t let a church building be THE one place you stop going because of this.
YOU may have something to share with people that nobody else has shared.
YOUR presence in a church building could be the VERY thing in which satan is MOST afraid! He’s the great deceiver. If you don’t think this could be true, then why would he work so hard to keep you out?
