In the last week or so, I’ve read several good posts on the idea of dissenters or critics among the church.
Dan at “Cerulean Sanctum” wrote “A Response to ‘Five Types of Critics in the Church’.” He struggles with the top down approach often taken with critics and criticism.
(By the way, Dan’s post and Arthur’s post are responses to the article “Five Types of Critics in the Church.”)
I think these are all good posts, with some very valuable discussions about dissension and criticism.
But, I wonder, why do we dislike criticism so much? Would you be willing to answer that question, from your own perspective, not about other people.
When you struggle with dissension and criticism that is leveled at you, why do you think you struggle?
