Truth, Offense, Correction

Today there are preachers who are afraid to preach truth for fear people will react and leave the church. The end result is a church of easily offended people who cannot grow beyond their inability to accept correction.—Francis Frangipane, A House United, page 119

I came across this in a blog. You can see it here also. I just found it interesting that's all. It makes me reflect on what is truth, how should it be presented?

Is there any possibility to relay truth without any offense?

How should we work on correction?

How should we respond to offense?

I would like to hear your views.

I'm a student of Theology (currently and will always be one). I'm a student of culture and a student of music as well. I guess you could say life is a never ending journey of learning. Because of that we never stop being students. Just a little something about this blog: Deconstructing The Monkey is all about being a safe space for emerging conversations
