From North Carolina pastor John Pavlovitz:
Sometime truth is just volume.
The loud people get to write the story that everyone hears, the one they come to believe is the only story. In this way, they get to define what is true for those looking on who may not hear anything else.
Right now there is a story being written about Christians in America; a story saturated with cruelty, one absent of compassion, and because the author’s volume is so great and their profile so high—that is becoming the singular story. It is becoming true for all of us.
But that is not our story.
There is another story.
There is a different kind of Christian.
We are such people.
