1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Never forget to remember that we are not better than any one else. We have all made mistakes in the past, and maybe even more in the present. We are sure to make more in the future. So we cannot hold someone’s past over their heads out of fear, to keep them in a subordinate position, or in an effort to prevent them from reaching their full potential within the Kingdom of God.
