Foundational Ideas: Flawed Saints
I wrote about being flawed saints
just a few days ago
, and I do not need to repeat my words. However, because the idea is so central to my thinking, I wanted to mention it again.

Simul iustus et peccator.
You are flawed saint.
Larry Crabb also helped me to see that I live in the middle of this apparent contrast. However, I really appreciated Richard Pratt’s book
