Beschreibung

Help for those who have been harmed by Christiansand those who have inflicted the wounds. Throughout history, Christians have done considerable damage to othersboth independently and in the name of Christ. Each time this occurs, one of Gods precious creations is wounded and the churchs witness to the world is grievously weakened. For years, unbelievers and Christians have rejected the church because of damaging encounters with a Christian, a Christian leader, or a group of Christians. No matter how much we wish to reverse the damage, however, we cannot reach the unchurched with the life-changing message of the gospelnor can we protect those still within the bodyunless we insist upon dramatic changes within our church communities. Targeting every person who has ever been hurt by a Christianas well as those believers responsible for inflicting such damaging woundsauthor Dave Burchett calls for a new way of relating that will bring healing to the church and transform our witness to the world.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Klappentext

"Dave allowed God to navigate him through the pain of religious moralism to arrive at insightful, compelling, and gracious wisdom. He remains a sincere lover of God's church and people as he directs weary pilgrims to safer lodging."
-John Lynch, coauthor of TrueFaced and Bo's Café

Have you been betrayed by a Christian friend? Are you disillusioned with the church?

If you have been hurt by Christians, you know all about anger and resentment. But what about a workable solution? How can the words and actions of "bad Christians" be addressed so the mistakes are not repeated?

When Bad Christians Happen to Good People offers a workable response and, ultimately, a new way of living. In this revised and updated edition, you will find healing for hurts infl icted by others. At the same time, you will discover ways to help Christians and church leaders recognize the damage that is done by unexamined assumptions, words, and actions.

After dealing with his own hurt, Dave Burchett now shows believers how to:
■ Live as Jesus followers, not rule enforcers
■ Stop using religious performance as the standard for accepting others
■ Let go of moralism, legalism, and an allegiance to trying harder
■ Discover God's grace as a daily reality, not just a word to use in evangelism

Working toward a solution will benefi t your own life at the same time it helps others. Whether you have been a bad Christian in the past, or have been hurt by one, there is a better way to live.
