You can hide things from people, you can even hide them from yourself… But, you cannot hide from God

1 Corinthians 3:13 

The work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done.

Food for thought

Reputation: is what you’re perceived to be by others.

Character: is what you really are.

Your character is more important than your reputation. You can fool others, but you cannot escape from who you are.
