Niceness is not a biblical virtue…

Niceness is not a biblical virtue; in fact, I consider it a vice.  Nice Christians pretend things are fine when they’re not, say one thing and do another, and avoid difficult conversations.  Niceness is rampant among Christians and it does damage.  The real virtues of our faith such as honesty, love, discipleship, repentance, and reconciliation require looking life full in the face and speaking the truth in love as best we can.”
