Right on! That's why we need a real Redeemer/Savior. But his Spirit has been alive in all people since the beginning of time. David 1334, I love King David, who did an unbelievably terrible thing, but he never stopped being the "beloved of God," which is what he remembered as he was able to face himself and accept his lack of perfection and asked for forgiveness. Was he perfect afterwards? Probably not. The race is long and falling and taking detours is reality.
