So first off;
We apologize for all the dumb things we Christians have done, and sometimes still do, especially when we do them in the name of Jesus (who taught us better!)

.
I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
– Ghandi

Second
, people hurt by church, usually leave church. Of course they do.
However, on the spiritual journey, it’s a truism that people make better progress together than they do alone.

So it’s a dilemma!
– On the one hand, we can’t abide the toxicity of church…
– On the other hand, we need a spiritual community.

Is it your dilemma?
It used to be ours.
