Dan Dick writes about being misquoted and treated poorly by critics. His final paragraph has an excellent exhortation for all of us:
As Christians, I believe we need to play by a better set of rules than the rest of the world. Twisting words, ascribing intention, lying and trying to make those we disagree with look bad are all rules of the secular game — but we can do better. Critics of contemporary Christianity accused us of being obtuse, and when we work so hard within the fold to attack and discredit each other, we merely fuel the fire. There is a lot of room for us to learn to speak the truth in love.
I say, Amen.
