We Are Imperfect People

 
 
 

 

No kidding, right? So why are we going out of our way to highlight this fundamental truth? Because for too long now many people who don’t trust the Bible feel that way because they don’t trust us. You know all the stereotypes - hypocritical, dishonest, self-righteous. They’re oversimplified, but they wouldn’t be stereotypes if there wasn’t at least partial truth in them. We need to fix that, but the hard part is being honest with ourselves about how we have contributed to the problem. Let us be known for our humility, as it’s the most basic tenant of cultivating trust.
