5. You’re honest about your struggles.
Unchurched people get suspicious when church leaders and Christians want to appear to have it ‘all together.’
Let’s face it, you don’t. And they know it.
When you are honest about your struggles, it draws unchurched people closer.
I make it a point to tell unchurched people all the time that our church isn’t perfect, that we will probably let them down, but that one of the marks of a Christian community is that we can deal with our problems face to face and honestly, and that I hope we will be able to work it through. There is a strange attraction in that.
