In my Church we have bad example as well. For example, Peter denied Jesus three times; Judas sold Him for 30 pieces of silver and none of the Apostles except for John was there at his crucifixion. If bad example is a reason too not be a part of the Catholic Church founded by Jesus, then Jesus should not have died for the Church and yet He did.
John, your in your church, point to the perceived sins of others while ignoring your own sins; this is the example of the Pharisees who in their hypocrisy, opposed Jesus. They were shocked by the company Jesus and the Apostles kept. "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and SINNERS" (Lk 5:3).
Yes, John, you do have a Biblical precedent in Scripture; however, it is the example of the Pharisees who were critical of Jesus for eating and drinking with sinners.
In my Church we encourage the forgiveness of sins of our own members. Please repent of your own sins rather than, pointing to the perceived sins of others. I would love to hear from anyone who agrees with John Patterson. However, before you do, please show us a picture of your church before it was sold and a photograph of the ramshackle hut you have now. Thanks!
