Many people who walk out of a church are offended Christians who became bitter. They were probably genuinely offended, but their wounds never healed.
One time i was in the office counselling, when a young man came to me. He boldly stated, “I have decided to be in your church because i believe this is where God wants me to be.”
I queried, “Why did you leave your former church?”
He replied, ” i was led by the Spirit to come here.”
I asked. “Apart from that, did something else happen to make you leave?”
He hesitated, and after a brief introduction, he kept on lamenting…
Immediately, i knew that what i suspected was true. This man was hurt and unresolved hurts had caused him to be cut off from his church.
