Summarize

Keep in mind that when sin is viewed superficially, it is dealt with superficially.

Obviously, sin needs to be confessed and repented of rather than ignored.

A Biblical Christian worldview perspective — We know that “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). However, we also know that mankind should not “continue to sin so that grace may abound” (Rom. 6:1–2). Proverbs 28:13 makes it clear that one who, “conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy”. As a believer, the reason we need to deal with our sins, (to repent and receive God’s grace and mercy) is presented throughout the Bible including from both James and John…

James 5:16 — Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

1 John 1:9 — If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
