No one is too far gone to outreach God's Love.
Even the most heinous apostate can be reconciled to God.
To God we are all like His children.
He will not judge us.
He will not condemn.
This is why Jesus said, "'For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.'" Matthew 9:13b (NRSV)
We can pray for those who persecute and abuse us to be reconciled to God.
This is what it means to love our enemies.
And who is to say that God will not redeem them?
