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.

If you are a Christian, you are washed clean in the sight of God. You are called a saint and yet, this side of heaven, you will not reach perfection.  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 Designedfor Dignity.
