Here are some thoughts he says to consider before you bash and trash talk - The Church of Jesus Christ:


1. We have to recognize Jesus loves the church (He loved her enough to die for her!)

2. The ‘local church’ is the hope of the world.

3. The church is made up of people.

4. People hurt people – not the church he states, “There is no such thing as the church hurting someone. It’s like saying: “The bank really hurt me.” “Restaurants have wounded me.” “The gym hurt my feelings.” It’s people who hurt others not The Church and the Bible tells us we have to forgive them!

5. There is no “Perfect local church” the only perfect church is one without people!
