But do we? Sometimes Christians feel pressured to be perfect. I know sometimes my athiest friends expect me to be. Sometimes to be a witness, do we say that we've done better or experienced something that relates to them that we haven't auctually experienced?
Sometimes the witness in me wants to say that when I have faced the same temptation I resisted. Afterall, my non-christian friends need to know there's hope in that area. But that's a lie. There are other times that I'm embarrassed that I have commited that paticular sin. Then when they ask me if I have done it, I want to say, "Why no, I haven't." Pretty soon we can adopt the attitude of Joe Christian and feet holyer then the average joe. Or the person who we told we related to them in experience tells another friend who tells another so pretty soon there are ten unknown people talking to you about an unrealated subject that you have not related to.
So admit your human. But hey, you're human so if you mess up once or twice all it means is that you have to try harder or get an accountibillity partner to help you. I know I'm getting one.
