Well the submit part is what I put with conviction and repentance. Thanks for making that point clear!
We are all flawed. It is when I see people saying these flaws are just who they are that concerns me. If you have the Holy Spirit in you that would cause you to not accept sin in your life, and you would desire to remove it.
