I write a monthly column in the Knoxville News-Sentinel as part of their Community Columnists line-up in the Sunday “Perspectives” section. This week’s column was a Christian apology to non-Christians for the unchristlike behavior that we often exhibit. The article can be found here: http://knoxnews.com/kns/perspectives/article/0,1406,KNS_2797_5575498,00.html.
I was not expecting the enormous (and overwhelming) response that I received. So far the e-mail tally is somewhere between 30-35. There were Christians who agreed with me, which was encouraging. There were also many who have been hurt by Christians or by the Church in general.
I have enjoyed corresponding with them and hope to continue to do so. There are so many with honest and heart-felt questions who just need someone who can discuss things with them without condemning them.
I pray that more will seek and that more Believers will be willing to have open diagalogue with those who may disagree with them..
