So, This is my first time starting a thread on here and I really like the thread I've been reading. Starting off I've been a Christian for as long as I can remember and with that being said there have been a lot of changes in this world that are concerning but the most concerning issue I think facing the body of Christ is that the church have spent so much time teaching and preaching on condemnation. I believe that there is definitely a way to tell the body of Christ whether that be new Christians, people who have been Christians most of their lives, or born again Christians about sin and how we should turn away from it and what not. However, I've noticed many churches, ministers, pastors spend so much time telling the body what they are doing wrong and basically scare the body of Christ into believing. It just frustrates me that we are not informing our brothers and sisters on the life that we have now and we spend so much time condemning them not as Christ would do, but as we understand consequences. God abides in a kingdom of love. Our job is to show that love to others to where they question their disbelief in Him. Again this was my first thread. I'm a college student who is very active at my church. I struggle daily with navigating in this world system, but finding sites like this is definitely encouraging for me.
