If you're angrier with myself and other #Exvangelicals for pointing out the hypocrisy and abuse in the Evangelical church than you are with these horrendous abuses and hypocrisy's, sorry to say, but you're part of the problem. #EmptyThePews [1]
Your anger shouldn't be at those of us who refuse to be silent, but with those who continue to perpetuate the harm that has chased so many out of the church. Your anger at those in pain, who have been harmed, instead of those doing the harming speaks volumes. [2]
If your desire is to truly be like Jesus, to truly emulate this saviour who came to show us the nature of God, then the reaction should be to comfort those in pain and cry out against injustices. But it's not. [3]
Injustice is defended with strawman arguments, excused for the very same things you condemn your opposition for. Those who are hurt are told to be silent and stop being divisive. #EmptyThePews #WeWillNotBeSilenced [4]
I grew up being told by Evangelical leaders we will be held accountable for every soul we turned away from Christ. If that is the case, if that is truly what you believe, then you, dear Evangelicals, are the largest culprits. [5]
The God and Christ you told us you believed is not who you emulate. You told us to fight for the poor, the marginalized -- to stand up for the immigrants and widows and children because that's what Jesus said. But you lied. [6]
When it came time to put your words into actions, you balked at the idea of helping any of these groups. You're content to send money and go on mission trips, but recoil in disgust at the idea of actively helping when they need it. [7]
You call those of us who stand up and fight for everything you told us we should care for as Christians 'heretics' 'social justice warriors' and 'cucks'. The Jesus-card you have played is not the one you claimed to hold. [8]
So no, we're not going to shut up, or be silenced, or stop standing up for what's right. That's the one good thing you instilled in us. Your faith may be tied into a book written by men. But ours isn't. Ours is in goodness. Justice. Love. Everything you pretended yours was. [9]
This is why I #Exvangelical and fight to #EmptyThePews. If your anger towards my voice is bigger than your anger towards the injustices being done in the name of the God you claim is love, you're perpetuating the abuse and harm as much as the rest. [10]
