Sin is sin; whether it is public or resides privately in the depths of your soul; or whether you are aware of its presence inside you.
And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity. (Leviticus 5:1 KJV)
There is a sinful silence. Sin is sin and is always an offense to the holiness of God even if it cannot be seen or heard by others or made known unto you. Sin is continually detected by God’s perfect and omnipresent spiritual radar system. His radar detects all sin naturally in opposition to His holiness.
You are a party to or take part in sin of others; whether you directly engage in a sinful choice or act or are standing by silently as an offense to God takes place. Sin hidden from man is never hidden to the spiritually burning eyes of God. The Bible tells us all things pertaining to man are naked or fillet before His presence.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. (Hebrews 4:12-13 KJV)
This is true wherever you may be; whether you are alone, in your own home, out in a crowd, or among other Christian’s fellowshipping, or attending God’s church. Sin is always present no matter where we are in this world as is the supernatural presence of God upon this earth and in the eternal realm.
