I posted a review of Soulprint by Mark Batterson earlier this week on nickduffel.com. I wanted to share one of his thoughts on confession and self-deception because it is so insightful.
“Our potential for sin is exceeded only by our potential fr self-deception. Sinful self-deception may be the only unlimited capacity we possess. So I’m no longer surprised by sin. What does surprise me is the person with the rare courage to confess. My opinion of people, when they confess their sins, never goes down. My opinion always goes up, simply because they are able to admit what the rest of us deny.”
Good stuff! Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy!
