If Christians stopped bickering about church, presenting sex as a first-order concern, telling other people how to lead their lives, and lending our name to minor-league politicians, what would we have to say?
Honestly the author has a lot of good points, but the title is wrong. The article is a list of things the church should be saying. There is only one thing it needs to say. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being an active and enthusiastic vessel for racism, discrimination, violence, child abuse, bigotry, entitlement, cruelty and vice. I’m sorry for working tirelessly for the last thousand years to make the world an overall worse place to exist.” If it wants, it can throw in an “I’m a failure” for good measure.
