176: Six Unhealthy Responses to Disagreement as Christians
Manage episode 306167235 series 2412309
Have you seen friends and family experiencing division and even ‘unfriending’ one another over differences? Why is this happening, and what is the impact on our faith and leadership when we view disagreement as the enemy?
Disagreement does not have to be the enemy. Yet, for many in our culture and even in our Christian communities, disagreement is viewed as something to be avoided. And when we view disagreement this way, we react to it in unhealthy ways.
In this episode (part 1 of the conversation), I’m going to share 6 of the unhealthy responses to disagreement that I have seen take place in my own life as well as in the church and culture. I’m also discussing what happens as a result of these responses. In part 2 of this conversation, I’ll be sharing about how we can gain a different perspective about disagreement--one that reflects the love and light of Christ more effectively.
