Reflection Points

  • In your opinion, where does prejudice seem strongest in the church? (race, class, politics, etc)?
  • Where do you feel you are most prejudiced? Who, for you, is guilty until proven innocent?
  • How do you suppose the non-Christian world views a church that is unable to display unity across ethnic, economic, or political lines? (If you are not a Christian, please state how you personally view such a church)?
  • How does considering the surpassing glory of Jesus help you to stay away from favoritism?
