God does not hold us accountable for our mistakes.
He writes off our debts.
How many parables did Jesus tell of the master writing off debts?
How many times did he say, "'Your sins are forgiven.'" Matthew 9:5 (NRSV)
It is inevitable that we will make mistakes.
We cannot know everything from birth.
So it is really just a matter of degree.
Jesus said, ""Those who are well have no need of a physician but those who are sick.'" Matthew 9:12 (NRSV) "For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.'" Matthew 9:13 (NRSV)
He also said that he who is forgiven more will love more.
