This morning we are starting a short series called My Apologies. For many who are outside of faith, they seem to not have a problem with Jesus, or at least who they perceive Jesus to be, but they have rejected Christianity as they know it or have heard of it. As the church of Jesus we bear much of the responsibility for this. This morning we are going to look at a question that has been asked of me and maybe you, Why are Christians so Judgmental? In a 2007 Barna research it was discovered that 90% of 16-29 year olds in the U.S. were of this opinion and claimed it was one of the major factors in leaving the church. The church purports itself to be different and those outside it expect it to be that way. Why? Because being misjudged by others is a wearisome reality. Phycology Today: The reality is many of us misjudge people, often based on what they look like, what they are wearing, or perhaps what they sound like…[A] survey revealed that 75 percent of people misjudged someone at least once a month or more.
