Look at the people God used throughout the Bible that had lives that were out of line--Noah got drunk; Abraham listened to Sarah and took Hagar as a concubine; Moses tried to deliver Israel from the Egyptians by his own strength, then struck the rock instead of speaking to it during the Exodus; Saul didn't completely obey when he was sent to destroy his enemies; David committed adultery; Jonah tried to run away when he was told to go preach to the Ninevites; Peter denied Christ three times, and cut off the ear of Malchus; and even Eli and Samuel, great men of God that they were, failed to hold their sons accountable, and the Bible says their sons were corrupt. Solomon married and took as concubines 1,000 foreign women, and ended his days worshipping their idols. Jesus is the only Person who was perfect; there have been people who loved God in the post-Biblical age who also stumbled, and most recovered. God alone is Judge.
