“But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14).
What separates the church and makes her stand out from other organizations and causes? The buildings? Programs? Budget? No, such things as these are common to a wide variety of entities. Our distinction and uniqueness is found in the person and work of Jesus Christ. When Christians give their voice to the negative rhetoric, hate-mongering, and mudslinging that dominates both the news cycle and social media, we just become part of the divisive clutter that widens the chasm of fear, hatred, and distrust. If we must comment on a personality, let it be the person of Jesus Christ. He alone can redeem the ills of humanity.
