We are not a group of perfect people, we all make our share of mistakes, but we also know that God has called all mankind to live righteously and godly in this present world (Rom 12:1-2; Titus 2:12). We have found the one Friend that can atone for our mistakes and shortcomings, and that Friend is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Heb 5:9).
