I Corinthians 4:4 And Sins Committed Through Ignorance

Almost all denominational believers and even many brethren believe that as long as we are sincere we don’t have to worry about the sins we may commit due to incomplete Bible knowledge (sins of ignorance). This is commonly called the “continual cleansing” view. But notice something Paul said in I Corinthians 4:4 – “I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me” (RSV). If one of the greatest Christians of all time wasn’t assured of personal justification just because he didn’t know of anything he had done wrong, then surely the same would be true of the rest of us. Conclusion: It is required that Christians must repent of and confess any and all sins to be forgiven of them (Acts 8:22, I John 1:9).
