Jesus was and is without sin. However, the Body of Christ on earth today is human therefore, is not without sin. He can be seen in us that live a life of repentance. Perfection is not required.
He paid for our wrong doings, but it is common for ritual abuse survivors to be latent with self-condemnation. Part of the mind control was to be made to feel disgraced. I have uprooted this. Perfection is not required. Matter of fact those that appear perfect are always hiding something.
- Do not Judge people includes self-condemnation.
Often, people who are struggling with their own shortcomings speak condemnation on others whose flaws are more pronounced. This is wrong but it does not stop there.
Jesus has never been judgmental. The people who were close to him were transformed, just being close to him.
Living without judging others is well talked about. Yet self-condemnation is rarely addressed. Many consider the spirit of self-condemnation a demon. It is probably the most damaging force that mankind faces. It causes many to revert and submit to damaging behavior. I have heard multiple people state that they have gone too far for God to save them. This is the churches fault as we have not taught that there is nothing that cannot be forgiven. In truth, nothing is too hard for God.
Sin is bad. Yet, the truth is that the more time a person spends with God the better their behavior gets. Sin does separate us from our perfect creator. It is important that a person let this control them.
- Perfection is not required.
The illusion of perfection is a massive red flag. Fakers whether they are occult members who mascaraed as a group of Christians or if they are just following traditional wrongs are not Christ Like.
- Repentance is a process.
God will meet you wherever you are at that time. One will change one step at a time. Let your flaws be signs that you need him more. If one lets their downfalls draw them closer to him, they come closer to who he created them to be.
A believer has been forgiven. That job is done. It is the churches Job to convince a person that they still need to fully accept that they are forgiven.
People tend to be too hard on themselves. We walk around letting the voice of abusers, demonic and human echo in our heads. Self-condemnation has to be addressed by the church.
Sin does separate people from God. However, allowing that to hinder us from spending time reaching toward him is deadly. It stops our development.
The Church, the true church, is not as big as it needs to be. They are those who feed people and take them in regardless of flaws. They are the ones that speak love not condemnation. They manage to let go of the harm that others have done to them and continually offer Love. This exists. I prayed and God brought me to a real church. Never forget that nothing is to hard for him who created everything.
