Renovare Blogging 4

Chris Webb, the president of Renovare, is also speaking at today's afternoon. He is speaking on sin. He makes the point that we want cleaned up homeless people and prostitutes. We would rejoice in this story. But what about the struggling prostitute, who worships with us and then goes back out on the street? Would an AA group kick out an alcoholic? No. What about a church that kicks out all sinners? It would be empty.

David was a terrible sinner, sinning in most every chapter. But he was a man after God's own heart. When confronted with his sin, he was shattered.

Why do we pretend that sin does not exist in the church? What can change this pretense?
