A few things worth knowing

Confessions of a Transgressor

clipped from armstrongbaptist.org
There are some who would say that “denial” is a river in Egypt. Unfortunately most of those people are in fact living in denial (hope they don’t drown in it).
My grandfather had a saying, “It doesn’t affect me – affect me – affect me …” He would use it when there was some self-denial going on. The point being that we could claim something had nothing to do with us, when in fact its effects were profound enough to cause serious dysfunction to be occurring. Denying the truth did not negate its effects.
The greatest sickness of man is the fact that our sin has separated us from God. Denying that reality does not negate the devastating effects of the separation. Nothing can be truly right when we are denied the relationship with our Creator for which we were created.

There is great power in finding the relief of guilt coming from the forgiveness of God. He will not offer that relief until we confess the sin.
