Be Honest With Yourself

Being dishonest with oneself about what to do or say can turn one problem into many.


If a Christian’s conscience warns them not to accept an idea or engage in an activity, they should honestly think about the decision they are about to make in relation to their beliefs as a Christian.

One of the key ways for Christians to maintain an authentic Christian life and attitude is to be honest with themselves when it comes to what they think and the choices they make. If a Christian’s conscience warns them not to accept an idea or engage in an activity, they should honestly think about the decision they are about to make in relation to their beliefs as a Christian.


It isn’t hard to tell oneself it is probably okay to do what one’s better judgment warns against when under peer pressure and for other reasons. This is not the same as doing what is wrong, and then telling oneself not to do it again afterward. Once Christians convince themselves that it is okay to do what they knew they shouldn’t have done, they are likely to continue acting in that way to their detriment or the harm of others.


Christians can be dishonest with their better judgment for reasons such as peer pressure or a strong temptation. However, Christians need to remember that this problem can turn one mistake into many. Christians need to remember that their love for Jesus, their beliefs as a Christian, and the good their way of life does for themselves and others is more valuable than what tempts or pressures them.
