Let's face it.  


There is a systemic problem with corruption of faith, stemming from an inability to brave the truth, the whole truth and nothing, but the truth.  


Half truths are not whole truths.  


Sometimes it is unintentional, because the mind believes what it wants to see and forces that belief into reality in a confirmation bias.  


Confirmation bias sometimes causes us to believe in lies, because we want to believe it to be true.


We want to believe that when we sin, we will be forgiven; therefore, we will give it greater significance than what can be forgiven.  


"And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven."  

                                        - Matthew 12:31


We can be forgiven for sins, but will be we forgiven by the Lord, by the person(s) you have hurt? 


And how to receive forgiveness without remorse, without confession of wrongdoing, without repentance and atonement?  


My point is that because of confirmation bias, our minds sometimes only hear that we will be forgiven for all of our sins, and do not distinguish between can be forgiven and blasphemy.


If you do not take in consideration that whole verse, then you are only hearing half the truth and not the whole truth. 


By recognizing the need to see the whole truth, however ugly, allows you to see the whole truth, understand and be enlightened.
