Romans 6:23 Conversation: Sometimes I wonder just how many times a day the average person sins. Just suppose that a person sinned only three times a day, he would have over a 1000 sins per year!

A hidden camera takes footage of me doing it and the teller and other eye witnesses identify me as the culprit. When I am brought before the judge he asks, How do you plead? I am guilty and the evidence is undeniable, so I say to him, I am guilty, but I have given the money back to the bank and I only did it because I have five children to feed and no money and no job, I promise to never do it again if you will just let me go. Would the judge be just if he let me go? There would be no justice if our judges behaved like this. God is much more just than any human judge and He simply cannot excuse our sin.
