The sad thing is that when I post trivial things on Facebook and social media, when I post happy things and daily reminders to love yourself, etc., my church and Christian community will be more than happy to respond and engage in conversation about this matter.
But when I post things about honest convictions, about accountability within the Christian community, and honestly, about anything not positive and bursting with light (pertaining to Christianity or not), my Christian community falls silent.
I’m convinced they see it, they hear it, they read it, but why the silence? It’s not even vocalized disagreement, it goes beyond that. When you’re ignored, it’s as if people can’t even be bothered enough to pose a response or formulate an opinion on what I’m addressing.
That hurts not only me, but our fellowship, our community, and it hurts the Christian community as a whole.
