    I have been a hypocrite.

    I have mocked you guys and the teachings of Christ and his saints in my heart when it comes to purity. Much like saint Augustine did at one point. I have much work to do. I pray that you may forgive me. God help me.

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again. We all fall. You're just like everyone else in this regard.
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

    Exactly. None of us are perfect. Far from it. We all have a long record of failures and will continue to fail. That you realize it and strive to do better is what is important.

    I'm glad you are seeking God with all your heart, but this sort of post is unnecessary. Don't seek approval or attention for things that are common to us all. Just seek Him and pick yourself up when you fall. No need to rattle the can for us to hear the change inside.

    Never thought of it that way before.

    “After each failure, ask forgiveness, pick yourself up, and try again. Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself but just this power of always trying again.” C.S. Lewis
    "Heaven offers nothing that the mercenary soul can desire. It is safe to tell the pure in heart that they shall see God, for only the pure in heart want to. There are rewards that do not sully motives. A man's love for a woman is not mercenary because he wants to marry her, nor his love for poetry mercenary because he wants to read it, nor his love of exercise less disinterested because he wants to run and leap and walk. Love, by definition, seeks to enjoy its object.” C.S. Lewis
