It is a known fact that no one will ever reach perfection. It is a common goal, for most humans, to try to achieve perfection. It is, also, natural for a human to create their own idea, of perfection for another person, without 'walking in the other person's shoes.' When, many, humans 'fall short' of their own perfection, they try to deflect this failure by pointing out another's imperfections. In reality, it is their own idea, of perfection for the other person, that is not achieved. A direct example, of this deflection, is in the use of the phrase 'jailhouse religion.'

'Jailhouse religion' is a phrase used, by many people, to imply that one only found religion because they are incarcerated. This phrase is used to imply that when the person is no longer incarcerated, they will 'end up' doing the same things that they were incarcerated for. This is a direct example, of deflection, because the phrases 'divorce religion, death religion, sickness religion, etc.' do not exist. Yet, incarceration, divorce, sickness, etc. all carry an equal chance of 'backsliding.' Have you ever seen a man/woman divorce a man/woman then, later, marry a similar man/woman? Is that 'divorce religion?' Besides, all sins were already 'paid-for' at the cross.

There is a more common example, of this deflection, and it centers around Adolf Hitler. It is commonly stated, in America, that Hitler is evil and in Hell, due to the holocaust. Yet, no one was with Hitler every second of every day. As far as we know, Hitler could have been asking God to work with him on his hatred of the Jews. Just as we ask God to work with us on cigarettes, or lust, or hatred, or whatever. Over time, he could've stopped, like America did with slavery. Who is to say that, spiritually, killing is worse than lying, cheating, adultery, etc. One sin is not worse than another. So, was Hitler really evil? We
just don't know.

Some people wish that they could travel back, in time, to make their imperfections perfect. But, be careful what you wish for. Here is a scenario. A basketball player loses his championship game by missing a last second shot. He wishes that he could travel back, in time, so that he could take a better shot. Somehow he does travel back, in time. This time, he is hit by a car and dies. He didn't even get to play in the game. Which do you think he would prefer, to miss a shot resulting in him losing the game, or losing his life? Unlearn.
