Here’s a really good piece about people who ‘fess up to some wrongdoing, only to keep going and actually justify it. I’ve noticed that especially in the church culture today, when a person tries to cover something up, it seems that more blame is affixed to the cover-up than the actual sin itself. But what if someone “puts it all out there,” only to excuse it away as no big deal in the first place? Might this actually be worse than feeling ashamed and covering it up? Food for thought.
