    Thank you for writing this! So many good things to think about.

    Thank you for this! “Perfect” characters get such a bad rap (often for good reason) that I’m really glad to see the good examples defended here!

    If you want to know how to write perfect characters… I have an idea.

    What is the meaning of perfection? Why did a perfect God order a slaughter of entire nations? Will at times moral deeds bring bad consequences? Loving the Lord may mean at times violating conventional morality (I recommend reading Kiekengaard’s fear and trembling to get the idea).

What say you?
