    That is something that has bothered me about the church as a whole. If someone sins & fails they are often cast off as a has been & the body can no longer use them.
    Almost every person written about in the Bible has major flaws like us in present day.

    Lazarus did have quite the problem:p ^_^

    exactly! And the church unwittingly casts aside the very ones whom the bible seems to focus most of it's time on. In a biblical perspective? It's our imperfections that qualify us. When the church casts aside the "immoral" I'm sure that's the same persecution the apostles endured by the religious leaders of THEIR day.

    thats awsome and praise God. He uses people who are the lowest and feel bad, sinners and turns them into Godly men and women

    Not to mention a ton of God's chosen were also murderers.

    Two of the greatest people in the old testament were murderers. Moses and David. Not to mention a ton of others.
