Why cover it up when sin can be washed away? You cannot save yourself. There is nothing you can do to be able to stand perfect before God on your own. Even the Old Testament sacrifices of the blood of bulls and goats could not take away sins (Hebrews 10:4).
The sunny skies are always inviting. Big fluffy white clouds against a bright blue backdrop are naturally soothing. However, storms do come. Being prepared for bad weather as well as the various storms of life that try to weaken our faith is the smart thing to do.
Hopefully no one is planning on using the excuse that God is unknowable. Even creation itself reveals God. In this world where many are worshiping the creature rather than the Creator, there still will be no worldly excuse that will nullify sin on that day each of us stands before our Creator. Agnostics and atheists will stand before God too.
Since creation itself reveals there is a God who made it all, anyone who seeks him will find him. The problem is in seeking a god that we want to be in our image rather than understanding we are made in the image of God and must choose to serve him as he wills. The Gospel is actually quite simple, and Jesus was quite clear in John.14.6 that he is the only way.
