The unkind kind

Tony Myles has several theories on why so many churches are full of unkind Christians. I found this most striking:
We don't always know if we've grown or if we've just gotten more intelligent about spiritual things. So we create a lot of rules that smell like Scripture but really are our own desire to feel in control... and we use them to tear others up.
"Rules that smell like Scripture." That's a keeper.
