"Redeemed: broken and flawed no more."
For #SixWordStories' Self-Portrait Mini-Contest. This is who I am, a Christian; I am no longer the same.

“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Ooh, profound stuff. :nod:

I like how this relates to who and what you are. The way you've phrased things is quite cool and I like the words that you've used as well. It's powerful in the way you've structured and.. yeah, it's not bad.

I'm not sure if I can agree with you there... I do feel it depends on your perception. I feel that, as humans, we are meant to be flawed.. but possibly not broken.

Still, that's just how I see things. ^^;

First of all, thank you for the feedback! I was racking my brain for this very interesting contest, I am many things: Author, Minister, sister, daughter, friend, ect. However, none of those seemed quite right... So, I just went with the simplest: Christian.

On the ‘flawed’ part: to be a Christian means to be Christ-like—I know so many who call themselves ‘Christian’ don’t follow that part so well, we aren’t always the best witnesses! The reason why I chose that wording is because when God see someone who is saved, He sees His Son who was *perfect* and *blameless*, thus, we are as well. Now, that is the ‘religious’ aspect of it, but I thought I would explain myself a little more. Hopefully, that made sense...

But everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion; I just thought I would explain mine. :)

Thank you for your time.

Yes, I know what you mean. :nod:

Hmm... I guess it's just different to different people because of perception and interpretations and such.

Oh... that makes more sense. :nod:

Thank you for explaining yours. :)
