Lauren Daigle Isn’t A Whore.

I don’t know Lauren Daigle or her heart for God. And here’s the kicker: NEITHER DO YOU!

But she’s the latest casualty along with Joel Osteen, Steven Furtick, Prosperity Preachers, Grace Preachers, Word Of Faith Preachers, and so many others by Christian Keyboard Warriors.

Why is it that you, in a public forum, feel it’s your job to shout the sins (or doctrinal disagreements you have) about other Christians on social media for the world to see? You look like an absolute fool to anyone outside of Christianity. And you make Christianity look as appealing as a colonoscopy.

Let me be completely clear at what I’m saying here. It’s not your job to “call out” by name any other Christian in the public arena. Period. No exceptions. It’s not scriptural and it’s damaging to the church.

I question your motives and your endgame. You’re puffing out your chest in unadulterated pride to build yourself up at the expense of a brother or sister. Proving you’re correct is never more important than building someone up. And you’re also playing judge and jury. Thank God for His grace!

Screaming about other people’s interpretation of scripture or their sin isn’t okay. Neither is taking someone’s statement out of context and crucifying their character. And isn’t it funny how you’ll scream the loudest about the things YOU don’t struggle with?

Don’t try to justify your behavior, it’s completely fruitless. We’re not their judge. We’re not the Holy Ghost. Do you think so little of the Holy Ghost that you think you can convict better than He can?

Wouldn’t it be more productive to take that same passion and zeal and share the actual Gospel of Christ?

If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. Matthew 18:15-16

The opinions of this blog are mine and mine alone. It doesn’t necessarily reflect the views of the church where I serve, the pastoral staff, my family, our golden doodle, or my first grade teacher. I earned a secular degree from a state college so you’re probably smarter than me. If you disagree with me that’s fine. I’m a big boy and I’m able to have cordial conversation with you.
