There is no question, we are all sinners. How are we to handle this capacity within ourselves? David L Talley tells the story of David. He sinned. He tried to hide his sin. He suffered and was compelled to sin even more. Then, David found the answer.
Read Dealing with Hidden Sin, by David L Talley at Bible Study Tools
"The primary turning point for sinful humanity is to see with our eyes what the Lord sees with His eyes. We need to see our lives as He sees them. Hiding is simply an attempt to divert one’s and other’s attention away from what is true about self with the hopes that everything will be okay. King David’s life reminds us that it is not that simple. After seeing our sin as God sees it, we need to acknowledge it before Him and ask for His forgiveness. King David’s prayer in Psalm 51:1-2 was “be gracious to me,” wash me thoroughly,” and “cleanse me” (see also Psalm 51:7-17)."
1 Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity And cleanse me from my sin.
7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which You have broken rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins And blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners will be converted to You.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; Then my tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips, That my mouth may declare Your praise.
16 For You do not delight in sacrifice, otherwise I would give it; You are not pleased with burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
