“… it’s true that Jesus Christ hung out with prostitutes, and people who were tax collectors, and people who were sinners, but He didn’t participate in their sin right along with them, He didn’t become a prostitute or become a tax collector to win them. Rather He came into their midst and they understood how much they needed Him, and they came to a life of true repentance where they walked away from their sin.”
