Here’s an interesting article from Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck about the local church that appeared in the Washington Post. Definitely worth a read.
“We’ve been in the church our whole lives and are not blind to its failings. Churches can be boring, hypocritical, hurtful, and inept. The church is full of sinners. Which is kind of the point. Christians are worse than you think. Our Savior is better than you imagine.”
