Today I take from a perfectly worded post that my friend Sierra wrote:

Today, there was a man condemning people on the NAU campus for various reasons. He mocked others, name-called, and yelled. He claimed that he was a disciple of God and that he himself is completely “perfect” and “never has sinned.”

1 John 1:8-10 says that “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make God out to be a liar and His word is not in us.”

The man speaking out today does not define my Christian faith. In fact, a lot of what he said contradicted God’s word. My dear NAU friends, please pray for this man and those affected by his hateful words. The world needs to know the true, loving God, and confusion and contradiction are not of Him.
