Recently I have witnessed a growing trend of Christians who are attacking and criticizing other Christians. Their verbal attacks are cannibalistic. I’m sure these kinds of things happened long before social media ever existed, but now it seems to be getting worse.
A well-known ministry said one thing that is shared and reshared around pages where their followers start petty squabbles. The next week, it will be another victim. It becomes hot gossip, and people from all walks of life are weighing in on the latest story. Sadly it’s like playing telephone, these things get blown way out of proportion. The ministries get attacked. The unbelievers are reminded as to why they don’t want to go into churches, and the Christians participating think they have become some kind of church vigilante.
