Bible Study Backlash
July 5, 2011
By: Rick Boxx

It’s sad when someone gets sued for doing good. Ron, a business owner I know, launched a voluntary bible study in his workplace.

An attendee began making poor decisions that impacted Ron’s business. The attendee eventually quit coming to the bible study. After several rebukes Ron finally dismissed him.

Ron was sued for religious discrimination. The claim said that bible study attendees received preferential treatment. Even though the claim was untrue, defending the suit cost Ron considerably.

1 Peter 4:16 recommends, “If you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.”

Like Ron, as Christians we may be attacked. Praise God for the honor, but also consider options to prevent future suits; possibly like asking others to lead the study.
