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.
(1 John 1:9-10)
"I am not blind! You have loved and stood for 'freedom',
but you have also used it as a cover for evil.
"My eyes see the good you have done,
but My eyes also see the evil you have done.
You want to see only your good deeds,
but you don't want to admit to evil deeds.
When your evil is brought out into the open,
you either justify it or put forth your good deeds
as if enough good deeds will cancel out your evil deeds.
"You are just and righteous in your own eyes,
and you want the world to acknowledge it;
you want the world to praise you for your justice
but not to question you with the same standards.
"If your good deeds outweigh your wrongs,
and your wrongs are justifiable,
why do you need My Son's righteousness?
Shall I judge you according to your deeds?"
Art: "Whose Righteousness?"
