Not often. Apparently – get ready for a shock – people hate admitting when they are wrong! Daily experience confirms this reality, but if you think I’m wrong about this, allow me to present some verifying research. PhyscTests AIM Inc. found in a 2019 study that 67% of the people they surveyed acknowledged that they hate admitting when they are wrong, while 11% claimed that they don’t mind admitting when they are wrong, and the rest who admitted nothing. This research is far from surprising. One need look no further than our country’s politicians to observe the amazing and often ridiculous lengths that people will go to to avoid any admonition of wrongdoing. “Mistakes were made.” By whom, good sir? “I misspoke.” Right, that’s what us common folk call lying. “My thinking has evolved.” Translation: “My previous promises will go unfulfilled.” It’s easy to call out politicians for doubletalk and their failure to own their mistakes, but what about everyday people? Every once in a while, I hear someone say “I’m never wrong!” I’m honestly dumbfounded when I hear someone say this. Thankfully, this is a minority view amongst people, with most admitting that they are sometimes wrong. That “all have sinned” (Rom. 3:23) is accepted by most. And while people will often readily admit to small mistakes that we daily make – like misplacing items or confusing information, when it comes to major beliefs and lifestyle, most people are convinced that they are right. As God’s Word says, “Every man’s way is right in His own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart” (Prov. 21:2). I recall sharing the Gospel on one occasion, and being told, “I’m pretty sure I’m not wrong.” It’s incredible how most people can recognize that we are all wrong about some things almost daily, and yet are not even willing to evaluate whether their beliefs about God or their lifestyle is wrong. It seems that the bigger the error, the more difficult it is for people to own up to wrongdoing. As Christians, we can still understand and empathize with these feelings. But when we initially came to God, we swallowed our pride and admitted our guilt. Sadly, admitting to wrongdoing is often the greatest obstacle in the way of people getting right with God. God is ready and willing to forgive all who begin by admitting “I’m wrong.” As God once said to Israel, “I will not be angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the LORD your God” (Jer. 3:12c-13a). We must reason with people to help them get past this obstacle. We should share with others that if “you are wrong about small things all the time, then couldn’t you be wrong about big things also, like your relationship with God, or your way of life?” Truth can only be found when people willingly admit when they are wrong. And God can only be found by those who acknowledge their sin. Let us always lead by example by admitting when we are wrong, and help the world see that getting right with God begins with saying “I’m wrong.” ~Jeffrey Howell
