“For I am the least of the apostles, and not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God” (1 Corinthians 15:9).
Just as Paul knew he wasn’t fit be called an apostle, neither are we worthy to be called followers of Jesus. It matters not who I once was, but who I am now in Christ Jesus. The church is not a “cancel culture” that seeks to define individuals on the basis of their past. Who you are now is defined by Jesus and your relationship with Him.
