People today try to justify themselves for different reasons. One reason is to look good and impress people. When this happens sooner or later the truth comes out, This is called foolish pride. Fortunately the Lord does forgive when one calls out and confesses their sin. Justification in the Bible means though we never sinned because of what Jesus did on the cross for us. The good news is that as Christians we are justified through Him by faith. Romans 5:1-5.
