We in ministry encounter suffering at almost every turn. But do we approach the notion that some of this suffering is not due to existential questions or to bereavement issues or to physical or financial loss but quite frankly due to how some people can confuse the hell out of others because of hypocrisy? The confusion we ourselves cause or allow others to inflict results in suffering. Christian Holy Scripture instructs us that we have a duty of fraternal correction (Matthew 18:15-17).
