A wake up call, courtesy Tertullian

Tertullian's Apologeticum 39:7 -

[The pagans] say, "See how these Christians love one another" (for they themselves hate one another); "and how ready they are to die for each other" (for they themselves are more ready to kill one another).

Wake up call for today: do you think people are saying this about your church today? Are they saying it about Christianity in general in our area? Are they saying it about you and your family's relationship with your church?

Or (more likely) are they seeing us gossiping, splitting churches, being hateful, and acting in hypocrisy?
