“An Honest Mistake”

     What if you have done something that’s a sin, but you didn’t know it was?


Dear Ignorant,

An unintentional sin is still a sin, and we need the grace of God to forgive us of it.  In the Old Testament, Jews were commanded to offer sin offerings for unintentional sins (Lev 4:2-3).  A sincere person making mistakes is certainly better than someone purposefully seeking out sin, but an honest mistake is still a mistake.

Jesus Christ came and gave His life, so those who wish to live godly lives could get a second chance and forgiveness for the sins they regretted.
