I recently filled out a job application questionnaire. One of the questions asked whether I had ever stolen anything from a store. It was a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question, with no room for explanation. I replied that I had not stolen. However, this is not true. Over fifteen years ago, when I was seventeen, I stole some items from a book store. I have confessed and repented of that old sin from many years ago. Was I right in not answering the question truthfully? Or should I have answered differently?
Thanks for your input.
