View Full Version : "God has forgiven me?"

What are some particularly egregious examples of scandalized prominent evangelists proclaiming that god has forgiven them? The more flagrantly insincere the better. I'd like some nice quotes, but if you can tell me "so-and-so said such-and-such", that'd be fine as well.
