Corrupt - but aren't we all?

Lies.  Corruption. Lack of repentance.
This could be a great time to throw stones.
Let's not.
Remember what Jesus said:

They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”  John 8:7 NLT

I now dwell happily in the Canadian prairies, but the majority of my life was spent in the Chicago metro area.  Political corruption wasn't an exception, it was the norm.  Yet each one that pointed a finger also condemned himself.

If one is beyond forgiveness then the same is true of all.  Instead of counting sins, why not look at the ways God can and will be glorified as grace flows and redemption arises!

All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn't, and doesn't, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it's sin versus grace, grace wins hands down Romans 5:20 The Message
Living loud what my heart believes with others at People of the Second Chance
