The Biblical Guide for Those Hurt by the Church

By       (Page 3 of 3 pages)   3 comments

He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. -- Titus 1: 9 (ESV)

The urge will be there however to blame all for the sins of some. Seek out our true brethren and enjoy their fellowship. The bride of Christ did not hurt you -- the apostate church did. There is a reason why the bible implores us to do our own homework and ensure we are being taught correctly. There is a reason why Paul names names of false teachers and the bible is filled with warnings against it. There is a reason why the bible says we are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. Iron sharpness iron but that alone implies two people. The anti-bride church hurt people are easy to spot. They wear their pain on their sleeve and wield it like a hammer. In many cases they appear to know the Word but use it to proof text their stone casting. Avoid them beloved for you may not be part of a church but you are part of the body of Christ.

There are few things more painful than being hurt by people you trusted and believed were in this for Jesus. I know. I have been there too. These steps I believe are crucial following the exodus from a church that has hurt you. You must test yourself to make sure that it is not a false christ you have been sold. Do not rely upon your feelings and experiences to sway you into belief. Use the Word of God alone. Next you need to realize that you are far from alone. Associate with people who share your faith and understand your pain. Seek out churches that are preaching the whole counsel of God and not these modern goat-focused, seeker-friendly purpose farms. Lastly, make sure your pain does not become an excuse to hate the bride of Christ. Learn to differentiate between the apostate church and the remnant. It is ok to admit that you were fooled once but never again beloved. Never again.
