I am sitting here thinking.
About the term coined CHURCH HURT.
I have used it myself.
But I realized that was not fair.
I was blaming THE CHURCH.
For the pain and shamed I endured in THE CHURCH.
Then it dawned on me.
A light bulb moment.
It was not THE CHURCH.
But the broken people in THE CHURCH.
THE CHURCH is full of broken people.
That is why they, we are there.
Because we all need Christ.
To heal our broken pieces.
So THE CHURCH is not to blame.
It is a hospital for the sick.
Our focus should not be on the people.
We should never let anyone distance us from the LOVE OF GOD
Or HOUSE OF GOD.
So I myself, abolish the term CHURCH HURT.
It is time to move forward.
