The Jonah Syndrome in the Church

A forever friend of mine made a most profound statement to me regarding the salvation of a friend who was not very popular in the community. She stated that the church failed him because it failed to demonstrate the grace and gospel Jesus did. “The church is more like Jonah than he [the friend] was.”

Ouch.

Is it true? Does the Church of Jesus Christ have the Jonah Syndrome?
