If a man sins and denies it…

If a man sins and denies it, saying, ‘I have not sinned,’ do not correct him, or you will destroy any intention he might have of changing. If you say, ‘Do not be cast down, my brother, but be careful about that in the future,’ you will move his heart to repent.

- Abba Poemen, sayings of the Desert Fathers
