It is bad to focus only on the evil out there, and what is wrong with churches. It’s easy to get trapped into this, to read and obsess on all these things especially when you find that you’ve been attending a church that’s into wrong teaching. It’s easy to focus on how to recognize the bad things and not focus on how to recognize truth. It’s important to keep the balance, and not an equal balance either. More focus should be on the study of Christ through the bible.
I find I have really put too much focus on all that is bad in churches. I needed to learn at first, the curve was great. Now that I have my eyes opened, I really need to get back to truth (I should always have had the balance, but it is easy to turn away just like that “train wreck” you cannot look away from). I am challenged to my core to retrain my focus on Christ. It’s sad how easy we can allow ourselves to be distracted. Such is the Christian life, knowing we are so wretched and thanking God for His grace and mercy. I know I really need Him, and can use every ounce of grace and mercy to cover all that is sin in me..
