I say, traitors; as some men live upon the reward of treachery, for their quiet and liberty; if it may be called a liberty, as it is redeemed with the betraying of the interest of Christ, and the blood of His people.
Redemption is not perfection. The redeemed must realize their imperfections.
The Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. God loves us, not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created and redeemed us in love.
It's true my father abused me and didn't love and protect me the way he should have, and at times it seemed no one would ever help me and it would never end. But God always had a plan for my life, and He has redeemed me.

I think to an extent every human being needs to be redeemed somewhat or at least needs to look at themselves and say, 'I've made mistakes, I'm off course, I need to change.' Which is probably the hardest thing for a human being to do, and maybe that's why it interests me so.
Praise now is one of the great duties of the redeemed. It will be their employment for ever.
One of the things that Dostoevsky talks about is that no character is too high to fall and no character is too low to be redeemed.

I really do believe that no one is too pious to fall or too far gone to be redeemed in some way.

It kills me that I care.
John F. Kennedy
