The biggest complaint I hear against organized Churchianity is the injustice Christians give each other every day. Christians allow scandal after scandal of dominating each other, neglecting needs, disunity, just to name a few.
Inviting non-Christians to join the scandals we harbor will only make future evangelism more difficult—and rightly so.
It’s as if Christians think non-Christians are blind to injustice, as if Christians have the corner on every good idea, and they’re actually surprised at non-Christian brilliance. Evangelism would be faster and easier if Christians plucked the log. But, first, they’d have to give non-Christians some overdue credit.
