    If we had to be perfect to enter heaven, heaven would be an empty place! Jesus's sacrifice on the cross with his shed blood made us perfect in His sight. It forgives all our imperfections, past and future. Of course we still have to keep trying to live according to His teachings and not purposefully sin, but we will at times. We acknowledge this and ask God for forgiveness, and keep trying :) This is my belief and it is Scriptural.

    I do or say something dumb everyday, I am so grateful to have a Savior that stands in the gap for me! Nobody can ever be perfect! No not ever, the key is to forgive oursleves and try to do better, until the next oops occur, which in surely coming.......
