I saw these words on a church sign today on the way home from the library:
"No perfect people allowed. Come just as you are."
But what about these words found in Matthew 5:48...
"Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
Perhaps the church sign is a message for non-believers, letting them know they are welcome. But I go to church every Sunday. Do I need to stay un-perfect so I will be "allowed" in? If I remain un-perfect, then visitors will feel more welcome. Is that the point?
Is church for believers or unbelievers?
