Church Wounds? Hurt in Church?



Do we need to call hundreds of ambulances for the many people around the world who are suffering from church wounds? I have experienced a church wound, and I have to admit that the pain from these wounds are initially very hard to bear. Isn’t it amazing that some of the most vindictive people that you can find anywhere are in the church? One must understand that church for some of us is all that we have, and to experience rejection, hurt, and dismay in one’s only place of safety is devastating to many people. I would submit that many of the mean spirited posts by Christians on the Internet, are from those who have festering church wounds. Many of the vindictive so called Christian Bloggers, Heresy Hunters, and Pulpit Pimp Monitors who post filth, rumours, and innuendos are simply those who have not healed from their church wounds. Is it right to hurt others because you are hurting?
Christians should be strong and vigilant to the attacks of the enemy, yet one would be remiss to not admit that many on the Christian battlefield are injured by friendly fire. Our enemy’s job is made so much easier many times by Christians, who are busy lusting after Positions, Power and Stature in the church to such a degree, that they hurt many others in the process. I am asking for responses from those of you who have suffered a devastating church wound that lead you to seek God for the healing of your church wound. Church wounds, like many other wounds heal over time if treated properly. The only way to treat these wounds properly is to seek God for healing and deliverance from the wound. Please leave your comments to help others who are currently going through the same thing, and to help the Body of Christ in our attempt to limit our losses due to friendly fire!
