  1. Sadly, despite the transformation that can take place, like the people in this account who grumbled, some church organisations do not always accept that people can change.

    • To become a Christian you first have to admit you are the worst of sinners and powerless to change yourself. Once Jesus forgives the millions you owe him and makes you clean what will He do if you go out and meet someone who owes you a day’s pay and you demand it from him? This is the terrible position the “Church” is in if they do not accept anyone and everyone. I didn’t say “approve of what they do” I said accept, value, extend warmth, be hospitable towards, be non-condemning of the person and choose to help them. I fail at this at times, but it is my goal.
