People everywhere and in every time have tried to make themselves right with God. They try to deal with their feelings of guilt and shame by hiding it or giving a good outward show. But they are just repeating Adam and Eve’s mistake in the garden. Watch how in By This Name, John Cross explains the aftermath of their choice to sin.
“There was only one problem with the fig leaf solution: it didn’t work. Having a good outward appearance did not remedy the inner reality. The feelings of fear, shame and guilt still churned within.”
–By This Name, Page 71
