Over Christmas we had a big family dinner, and for some reason we always talk 60% church stuff, 40% anything else. I guess it could have been worse...like 90/10. Anyway..
My aunt told us that she was getting a new VIsitng teaching person because the previous person left the church! Apparently this lady used to work for the church office building. Couple of months ago she left her job and then she left the church.
Aunt: I just don't get why she left. You would think people working directly for the church won't have those...problems...
Dad: Oh, well. You never know. People leave for various reasons.
Someone: Well, people usually leave cause they get offended.
Aunt: Yeah, someone probably offended her. Yeah, that could be the reason. But why would you give up your job? I wouldn't leave my job over a stupid offense.
Someone: Wait. Did she quit or did she get fired?
Aunt: I don't know. I was told she quit the COB...
Someone: Maybe they fired her. Perhaps she did something wrong, she could have stolen something...
Aunt: I didn't think about it... She quit the job all of sudden and stopped attending Church...well, it would make sense. She got fired and that made her mad, so she left the church.
I had to call my family out on their BS. This person probably had long term doubts and couldn't fake it anymore. It blew my mind how they looked for any possible scenarios, which would put this lady into a bad position, while the church is still perfect.
