A common response when a person is first confronted with sin is defensiveness and lying. One of the worst things that can happen at that point is for him to find someone who will give him sympathy. Only true repentance provides a foundation upon which a life can be rebuilt after there have been broken dreams, hopes, & lives. Repentance does not stop all of sin's consequences, but it can cut down on the reaping of some of them. Jesus gave us a picture of the proper attitude of repentance when He told the story of the Pharisee & the Publican. Though both were sinners, one was proud & the other humble. One was defensive, & the other offered no defense. One justified himself by comparing himself with others. The other offered no justification. Paul expounded further on true repentance by showing that the difference in true and false repentance relates to the difference between worldly sorrow & Godly sorrow.
