We all seem to put people into a box–labeling them in ways that we can either easily dismiss, or categorically aspire to, without really getting into the messiness of really knowing them. Most are likely to say that stereotypes are not true, yet they still exist and influence our perceptions in profound ways.
This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we look at the reality that not only have we stereotyped certain people and groups in life, but the same has happened to us. We’ll talk about changing five stereotypes Christians are known for.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- Why humans tend to want to stereotype and label others.
- Ways that the media shapes unhelpful stereotypes about Christians.
- How Jesus was hard to label because he moved in a “third way”.
- 5 stereotypes that Christians need to change about us immediately.
From this episode:
“I fear that some of our listeners may want us to come down way harder left or right on this issue, but again I have to say, my heart breaks that culturally there exists a stereotype that says that Christians, God’s kids, and by extension maybe God himself, is anti-anybody. That goes so against the gospel!”
