Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me)

How far will you go to justify foolish beliefs, bad decisions & hurtful acts?!

Why won't we just admit our mistake, say we're sorry, & commit to doing our best not to do it again?

1 John 1:8-10
If we claim that we're free of sin, we're only fooling ourselves. A claim like that is errant nonsense. On the other hand, if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won't let us down; he'll be true to himself. He'll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing. If we claim that we've never sinned, we out-and-out contradict God—make a liar out of him. A claim like that only shows off our ignorance of God.
