by Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Sharing Our Brokenness With Others
Editor’s note: What?!?!? Now we’re being told that admitting to imperfection or listening to the imperfections of others is a sin? These people has some of the most twisted horrible toxic logic of all time. How is admitting where we are in the moment a sin? Jesus didn’t tell us to go out there and brag about how together and perfect we are at all. He preached humbleness, reality, truth. But the female cultural enforcers cannot be having people being honest and real, can they, or it might expose the broken down system they follow is riddled with hideous flaws.
Have you noticed how popular among Christians it is to write and speak about their brokenness? A woman shared an article in the chat room called, “The Very Worse Trend Ever.” Women bragging about having messy homes, burnt dinners, and anything else they can think of that they failed at so they can help other women feel content knowing that even these big name, popular female writers struggle in the same areas that they do.
Is this what we, as Christian, are called to do? These women are admitting to us that they aren’t perfect. Yes, we know this. No one is perfect even if they act like they are. We all have struggles and hard times when we fail at what we want to be and do. However, in God’s Word, we are told to encourage and exhort one another daily. Paul said he disciplined his body and wouldn’t allow his body to have control and disqualify him from the race set before him. He told us to follow the examples of those who are living godly lives.
I have been told that I make women feel guilty and I have no right to do this since I have failed in areas that I teach: working when I had a child and being an unsubmissive wife. I have been very honest in my failures and what I have learned to become what the Lord has called me to do. I take seriously the command to exhort one another daily.
