Love, unity, and spittle within the body of believers…

Lies we believe about other believers within Christianity, especially at our own churches

1. “I don’t think they really are believers, have you seen (insert whatever here – their movie collection, their children, their cars, their house, how haughty, etc…)

2. “They are just pretending to be Christians, treating this place like a social club to make them feel better.”

3. “Why do they even come except to have everyone notice them?”

4. “Does anyone in this place open their Bible besides me? Oh, wait, I haven’t opened mine in a week.”

5. “Does anyone in this place pray besides me? Oh, wait, I haven’t prayed in a week.”

6. “Go ask so, and so, she always does those things for other people.  Nobody else can do it or we might offend her.”

7. “Don’t look now, it’s the Brady Bunch.  Everything is either perfect in their world, or they are hiding some dark secrets that we will never know about.”

8. “The only reason they are on stage is to glorify themselves, not to glorify God.”

9. “I am not going to talk to that lady, she is crazy.  I heard she has twenty cats in her house.”

10. “I don’t think anybody in this place wants to be here, so why do we keep coming?”

What other lies can you think of that we use to belittle others within our congregations and to dissuade ourselves from stepping foot in church?
