Negative Perceptions

Christian-Snob
I’m so much cooler than you.

I think one reason so many people are repelled by Christianity is because of skewed interpretations of their beliefs. Sometimes, I think apologetics and discussing evidence of Jesus’ resurrection is hopeless if we do not first focus on the negative perceptions associated with the Christian faith. No matter how likely the resurrection seems to someone, they will not choose to commit their lives to something that seems elitist and segregating. Anybody who considers the evidence for Jesus has no chance of believing it if they have a negative perception of His followers. Apologetics is great, but in order to change negative perceptions, Christians need to first emphasize the fact that the Bible actually does not encourage snobbery.

  1. This is so true …….. “Anybody who considers the evidence for Jesus has no chance of believing it if they have a negative perception of His followers.” … and also, I think that the negative perception of followers is the reason that many, many people will never even get as far as reviewing the alleged evidence.
    Great Post:)
