We have become so intolerant of Biblical Terms we cannot even handle what God calls sin.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:16
Once upon a time we called sin by its Biblical name. Now we call many sins mistakes. Here are a few: “An affair”—Biblically it’s adultery. “He has Sticky fingers”—Biblically, He’s a thief. “She sure is manipulative”—Biblically, She’s a liar. We have made excuse after excuse why we do what we do. Simply put, we are sinners in need of a Saviour. Jesus is that Saviour! He didn’t come into this world to save us from our mistakes. He came to save us from our sin!
A mistake is not something done intentionally like sin. A mistake is done by a fault, a slip, or an error. Sin is intentionally done because that is who we are-- sinners. Isaiah 53:6 describes us as wondering sheep; “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6 Our “own way” is to sin! Without Jesus Christ coming to fulfill our need of a Saviour we would still be lost in our sin and trespasses. He died, was buried, and arose again the third day to conquer death, hell, and the grave for you and I! If you repent, He will save you! If you ask Him, He will save you! If you trust Him, He will save you! Unbiblically speaking, even from the “Simple Mistakes” you have made…He will save you!
