It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. A lot of the people (including me) in the pews at Hometown Friends Church have warts—pride, envy, anger, and more. The focus on confession this morning naturally makes us look at the particular sin that has the strongest lock on us. The main point is the danger of hidden (unconfessed) sin. When we try to look better than we are, we give legitimacy to descriptors like façade, pretense, phony, counterfeit, fake, fraud, imposter—none of which I would want on my tombstone.
