Churches and Christian festivals like to highlight by testimonies those that have done terrible things, repented and have been realigned with Jesus. These testimonies are examples of the thief on the cross who repented and went to Heaven. The stories of transformed lives are powerful, no doubt - and we all, as sinners, rest in the assurance that no sin is too great for forgiveness and entry to Heaven. Praise God.
But perhaps there is a time and a place for graphic testimonies of past sins and lives transformed and maybe that time and place are not every Sunday and perhaps they should have a parental guidance warning that goes along with them.
Do we do an injustice to believes who are walking in the light of Jesus (have not crossed the line to the world of sin), and to non-believers (seekers) who are leading a morally sound life?
Might we actually, by highlighting past sins in detail, creating excuses (even subliminally) for people to sin. Are we leading the flock to a milk toast type of faith where people say, "It's ok, Jesus loves me so I can sin, and sin, and sin"?
