    I can’t help but think that these are leaders with knives in their backs.

  • Ellen Haroutunian

    That is so true and it makes me so sad.

  • preacherlady

    Of course it’s the leaders with the knives in their backs.

  • Nancy T.

    I think that it really applies to all, especially in churches that become unhealthy. Yes, often those in leadership roles get the knife, but… it can also be them back-stabbing, and congregants doing it to each other. I think at times the dysfunctionality breeds that kind of anger and passive-aggressiveness to the point that many people become involved in it, to some degree or other.

  • Jill

    yes – the bloody knives in the backs with the ‘great for Christmas’ line underneath.

  • Lilly

    That’s gonna leave a mark!!!

  • Siestheday

    Cynical view on fellowship … but in reality often recognizable.

  • Ang

    Yep, I went to church thereā€¦…
