Utter Loneliness

"Many Christians are unthinkably horrified when a real sinner is suddenly discovered among the righteous. So we remain alone with our sin, living in lies and hypocrisy…. He who is alone with his sins is utterly alone."

– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  1. This is true and sad that there are sinners that are too ashamed to tell or talk about their sins and we as Christians should welcome them as we are fellow sinners. And there are sinners that deliberately deceive the righteous to which God will judge. I dont necessarily think that “secret sin” should be judged until you understand the other person reasons for hiding it. James 5:16 NIV

    Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
