Test of Your Confession

Test 8 of 9


1 John 1:8-10 says,

  • If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.

  • This is absolute, it's not optional. All Christians acknowledge their sinful ways. Confession is not something we do once, then get converted and never do again. We go on sinning too: John says here both if we claim to have not sinned - in the past - and also if we claim to (now) be without sin - in the present tense.
