Relational Restoration in a World of “Toxicity”

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-wbifi-e3d916

We have all heard of the term “toxic relationship” or the popular question of “when do I cut off a toxic person/relationship?” These pop psychology phrases have morphed into the social phenomena of “cancel culture” and echo chambers of “self love”

But when Christians have fractured relationships with family or friends, or even members of Christ’s body of believers, how should we respond? Should we be asking the same questions that popular culture tells us to ask – evaluating what the other person brings to the relationship? Should we seek to rebuild relationships that have been poisoned by a past wrong, or even more popularly today, by identity politics? What does scripture say about relational restoration and its level of importance? What kind of hope can we have for restoring relationships?
