Confession & Sins the World Does Not Recognize

We as Christians have been influenced by the world to have similar views of right and wrong—lying, cheating, and stealing are a few of the common sins. So as long as we do not lie, cheat, or steal, our conscience does not yell at us.

There are other sins, such as complaining, arguing, not being thankful, not rejoicing, being anxious, and being depressed. These are all very clearly sin. They need to be in your conscience. You should be convicted of sin when you do any of these, convicted so that you confess them and get forgiven. The non-Christian will not be convicted of these. He does not have the Holy Spirit.
