So, here are a few things for those who have been hurt to remember before they lash out.
The church didn't hurt you. It was a few people within the church.
Many of the hateful people in a church do not know the Lord.
Most churches are doing their best to reach people with the gospel.
The church is the Bride of Christ no matter what has happened to you.
Maybe you actually deserved what you got.
God is using this experience to do something greater in your life.
10 But the king said, “What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? If he is cursing because the LORD has said to him, ‘Curse David,’ who then shall say, ‘Why have you done so?’” 11 And David said to Abishai and to all his servants, “Behold, my own son seeks my life; how much more now may this Benjaminite! Leave him alone, and let him curse, for the LORD has told him to.
God could be using your loving reaction to work in the life of the one who hurt you.
38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
