If we ever decided to CANCEL imperfect people from the Bible, we would be left with only one person… Jesus Christ.
God left the imperfect ones in the Word so that the contrast between perfection and imperfection would be crystal clear.
Also, we can learn lessons of failure and success from people who have tried, failed, got back up, and tried again—David, Peter, Thomas, Moses, Samson, etc.
The message is clear. Leave the imperfect examples there so we can learn what “not” to be like, but leave Jesus alone so we can learn WHO to be like.
In this world of “cancel culture,” there is only one who can genuinely cancel or remove our past sins and failures, and His Name is Jesus.
Romans 8:1 (NKJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
