A high school in Bedfordshire, England has a policy of not correcting any more than three spelling errors in a student’s work, fearful that this would damage their self image. It seems we will go to any length to pretend unpleasantness does not exist. We pretend that sin is just a mistake. We pretend there is no God. We pretend that death ends all. But truth is never changed by putting our heads in the sand. Paul the Apostle warned, “Be not deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he shall also reap.” One Old Testament writer warned, “Be sure your sin will find you out.”In other words, we cannot do wrong and get away with it. Better to ‘fess up and then humbly ask God to forgive us. After all, that’s why Jesus went to Calvary.
