Sermon: Secret Faults and Presumptuous Thoughts
Everyone hides skeletons in the closet of his mind, those embarrassing faults often relating to gray areas of life. People can mentally "legalize their iniquities," in doing so presumptuously attempting to make God the accomplice of their sins. But God is the accomplice in no one's sins; He will not overlook blatant or secret faults. The marching order for humanity is to carefully keep God's eternal Commandments, precepts, statutes and judgments (Deuteronomy 4:2-6; Psalm 119:152). God's people are warned that absolutely nothing is hidden from His eyes; the time of judgment will reveal all (Ecclesiastes 11:12-14). David, who realized that forgiveness was not equivalent to cheap grace, begged God to show him his secret and presumptuous thoughts (Psalm 139:23-24). Everyone's secret faults lie bare before the searchlight of God's Word (Hebrews 4:12-13), penetrating as it does to the depths of the heart. God's people must shine this penetrating light on their own inner thoughts, bringing them into captivity to Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5).
