Offended

January 1, 2016

Over twenty years ago the author John Bevere wrote in the book, The Bait of Satan, that he had “observed one of the enemy’s most deadly and deceptive traps. It imprisons countless Christians, severs relationships and widens existing breaches between us. It is the trap of offense.” What he observed over two decades ago seems to have increased exponentially today. The spirit of offense is behind much of the tension in the world as it engenders frustration, resentment, anger, and bitterness between people. The result is an increasing loss of compassion; coldness; and even hatred. As people lose the ability to genuinely dialogue about differences, they lose the ability to hear one another, discuss these differences, and most importantly the ability to spread the Good News of Jesus. In this teaching Dan Gallagher exposes the problem of offense, the cause behind it, and the godly solutions we can all employ to free ourselves from the Enemy’s trap of being “offended.”
