"SIN SHARED DOES NOT MEAN THE SAME JUDGEMENT IS SHARED. SIN SHARED DOES NOT SHARE THE REPARATION."

“I’m getting by with what I’ve done because only one or a few people know I’m guilty of certain things.  They won’t talk, they won’t discuss it with anyone.

So many times faith in another person involves a person’s line of total confidence that is beyond the one trusted’s integrity or ability to see the necessity for secrecy.

People who sin together feel a bondage that is bound by an unknown factor, but not so unknown that it cannot be termed ‘immorality’.

They say there is honor among thieves.  Many people feel that the honor in sin is upheld by the other person because they, too, must be bound by the secrecy for the good of themselves.

At the time of submission to impure acts, thoughts, words or deeds, the compulsion, the impulsiveness is attributable to, and justified, because of personal desire, personal need, personal satisfaction, personal self-love, personal ego, a personal relaxed conclusion that ‘I’ve got to do it.’

Sinning with someone else says a ‘weak relationship’ no matter what reason is accepted by the parties involved.  Also, such a weak relationship is never remembered as good.”
