One of the most critical teachings of Christianity is forgiveness and redemption. It is through these teachings that individuals are encouraged to seek a new path and make amends for their past actions. However, despite these teachings, some churches still judge individuals based on their past behaviour, particularly those who have had a troubled past. Such attitudes can have a profound impact on the spiritual growth and well-being of those individuals, as well as the church community as a whole. To overcome these issues, churches must embrace forgiveness and redemption fully and create an environment that is welcoming to all, regardless of their past behaviour.
