My work of an evangelist has made me aware of a trust inequity between churched and de-churched believers. Many churched believers and their shepherds expect new acquaintances to trust them much more than the trust they extend to new acquaintances. This is a sin of hypocrisy and a failure of the Golden Rule. Repenting of this sin is key to welcoming de-churched believers into better pasture and greater fellowship. I've found it to be one of the main barriers in my work of building bridges between de-churched believers and traditional models of Christian fellowship.
