Sometimes people are full of sanctimonious self-satisfying pandering to the masses actions.
In the name of reasonableness do we not all have a past? I know I have said things in the past I am not proud of. I probably hold opinions now, some would disagree with.
I loathe being near people who smoke, possibly more than any other person than an ex-smoker! It is those who are reformed who often have the strongest opposite view of the things they have taken part in.
Life is about growth. We only learn who we are by experiencing life and that includes making mistakes.
Whether it is an editor, a politician, a member of the local parish council, a film star or a worker at the checkout at the local supermarket, we are all likely to have sinned.
“Let he or she who hath not sinned cast the first stone.” John 8:7
Where would we be without forgiveness and understanding of change to promote growth. The best example I can think of where not holding a grudge against past actions would be the Germany of the Second World War, through to reunification and where it is now a strong European power.
Please give it a rest. It is getting to be more frequent than a re-run on the BBC
