Confession 2.12 | KJV
I must acknowledge the great evil that there is in sin, and in my sin; the malignity of its nature, and its mischievousness to me.
The sinfulness of sin.
O that sin may appear sin to me, may appear in its own colours; and that by the commandment I may see it to be exceeding sinful, Romans 7:13(KJV) because it is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4(KJV)
By every willful sin I have in effect said, I will not have this man to reign over me. Luke 19:14(KJV) And, Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice? Exodus 5:2(KJV) And thus have I reproached the Lord, Numbers 15:30(KJV) and cast his laws behind my back. Nehemiah 9:26(KJV)
The foolishness of sin.
So foolish have I been and ignorant, and even as a beast before God. Psalm 73:22(KJV)
