Torturing our Own?

A couple weeks back, we had a short discussion at church about past hurts brought on by churches, and their people. Someone made the comment that the church is the only army which kills its wounded.

I remarked that we don't kill our wounded. We keep them alive and torture them for awhile. There was a hearty laugh in the room.

Why do we identify with this sad observation?

sometimes we forget to mourn. which leads down the rabbit hole... and that compounds the ? who are we in Christ?
