By acknowledging my sin, I mean more than a halfhearted admission to myself that I acted selfishly in a given instance. Rather, I mean a wholehearted, defenseless admission, ‘I am a selfish person, and that particular act was only a manifestation of the selfishness that still dwells within me’. But in order to make such an admission, I need the assurance that my selfishness is forgiven – that God no longer holds it against me.”
