You are a short, ferocious, simile-filled letter about some people who are infiltrating the church. We don’t know exactly what these people are up to but you mention sexual misconduct, problems with authority, and obsession with money. They are manipulative, arrogant, and divisive. They take advantage of the loving kindness of the church and they are dangerous.
Does that sound familiar?
- When was a time that you experienced manipulative, arrogant, and divisive people in a faith community?
- How do you see people taking advantage of the loving kindness of the church in our world today?
