The sinner is often closer to God than the saint.
The saint often has many conditions and rules that keep him/her from experiencing direct communion with God, while the sinners' lack of conditions and rules, may allow him/her to unexpectedly discover communion with God.
Of course there is no such thing as sinner or saint – they are made up according to our beliefs which are also made up. The point is, the more conditions and rules you must follow in order to know God, the more you constrict yourself and the more constricted you are, the more you disconnect from the essence of who you really are, which, of course, is God.
Live Life Fully
Follow Your Heart
and, of course, Love, Love, Love!
In grace & gratitude,
