The Great facebook Debate
WaII Info Subscribe Photos +
Charisma Here’s a question we often wrestle with in the office: Should we report on “problems” affecting the body of Christ (e.g., divorce, financial misappropriations, etc.)? Our Charisma Facebook friends gave us their thoughts. Do you agree with their comments? Do you have something to add? Join us at facebook.com/charismamagazine.
D.F. Absolutely. The Bible does not conceal the sins of God’s people. They are listed, some in stunning detail, for all to see. Not saying anything gives a false impression that all is well; and it is not. We are sick and need healing. A problem needs to be identified and diagnosed before healing can begin.

S.Q. True believers live in transparency and allow others to grow from it. We need accountability. God will lead you to what is building up and what would be tearing down. Great example: the January issue cover story. Wow, what a great story of overcoming!

D.B. You should leave the exposing to God. Christians may not admit it, but they like gossip just as much as sinners. If something that isn’t kosher happens in your family, would you sell the story to the media so the whole world can judge your loved ones? No, so why do it to our church family?

A.P. I’d like to read it from a Christian source first in order to be prepared, rather than from the [secular] news media. From a Christian magazine, it’s handled with sympathy for that person caught in a trial. We can’t point a finger, as we all have sinned. It’s a hard question and I would imagine either way will bring criticism.

N.M. Yes, just start and end with hope, grace, love—not elder-brother judgments. We need honesty, but in the context of love.
