Can anybody help me to understand what the bold text means?
"And, dear Jesus, we beseech Thee, on behalf of one among us, or perhaps now among us, or soon to be present among us (it would not do to admit that he knew of anything that was occurring in the room), one we truly fear dead in trespasses and sins and so it seems far indeed from the precious blood. May it please Thee that this thine aged servant may at last be gladdened, ere he pass into his exceeding great reward, by Thy wonderful mercy working in this hard heart and unregenerate Adam --"
Aleister Crowley, The Death Bed Repentance, 1918
Thanks a lot.

It would not be good to admit that Jesus might know what was going on in the room.
