Scriptures: 1 John 1:8-10, Proverbs 3:20, Isaiah 55:7, Romans 3:25-26


We won't call sin by its proper name anymore. For example, people don't lie--they have a "credibility gap." People aren't dishonest--they are just "shrewd business people." People don't commit adultery--they just have "affairs." It's not embezzling--it is "creative accounting." Doublespeak has become one of the biggest problems in the English language.


The reality is, these are sinful, whatever we choose to call them. But the bright hope is, in Christ, we don't have to "spin our sin" with fancy words. We don't have to sweep anything under the carpet and pray God doesn't notice. In Christ, we can be forgiven of anything.


"When you confess sin, you say about that sin what God would say about that sin. The reason why that is so difficult is, in effect, when you confess sin you are testifying against yourself." --Dr. Merritt
