Thank you for your last correction.

Can you explain to me why I can't use the past simple in sentence (1) as the action is finished? I really hope you can check all the other sentences too

1) He makes clear that he had to overcome his prejudice towards her ..... (he is unprejudices now)
2) He is not remorseful. He doesn't repent his attitude towards Elizabeth's sister
3) He says that she might have forgiven him, if her pride hadn't been hurt by his honest confession.
4) She accuses him of loving him against his reason.

Thank you

    If you are writing in the present, then all verbs must be in the present; if writing in the past, then all must be in the past. You can not switch back and forth.

    You are saying, "he makes"- present
    he had - past.

    The other sentences are fine.
