The forgiveness of sins is perpetual and righteousness first is not required.

The forgiveness of sins is perpetual and righteousness first is not required.

“But privately when things got very bad I often looked into books to see whether I could find some helpful words, and one day I read, “The forgiveness of sins is perpetual and righteousness first is not required.” This impressed me so deeply that I went around saying it to myself. But then I forgot which book it was.”
Saul Bellow, Henderson the Rain King
