Poll: Which is a bigger problem in the church today, lack of grace or boldness?

I’m curious, based on your experience, which is a bigger problem in the church today, a lack of grace (Christians being jerks, misrepresenting Christ) or a lack of boldness (Christians being silent, NOT representing Christ)? I know both are problems, I’m just interested in what others think is the BIGGER problem today.

    I’m commenting here with certainty when I write that I believe the problem is a lack of boldness. I also think that perhaps the lack of grace could be resolved if those, filled with the Spirit and truth, would be more bold, thus setting visible, articulate examples for those who haven’t yet learned to follow Christ in obedience. I’ve heard that only 2 or 3% of Christians ever share their faith (let alone regularly). I’m willing to be that the USA would have half it’s current problems if Christians had, this whole time, been boldly sharing their faith with others on a regular basis.

      Gary, thanks for your comment. I’m inclined to agree. I actually expected people to say the opposite, that we were lacking more in grace, but so far most have answered boldness.
