What Biblical Confession Entails

June 14, 2014

Friends,
Many “Christians” are teaching that God will forgive us of our sins if we confess our sins to Him. They often quote 1 John 1:9 which says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Sadly, they not only teach from this verse that God forgives a person while he continues to commit deliberate sin, but they also teach that being cleansed of unrighteousness means to be seen by God as righteous even while the person keeps on in his sinful ways! What falsehood! (Heb. 10:26-31)

Israeliteindeed has written down for us what Biblical Confession actually entails. Here is what she writes:

Biblical Confession

by israeliteindeed

The word, “confession” may conjure up all kinds of definitions in people’s minds, depending upon their religious background. Some believe that confession is merely saying “sorry” for your sins, and that this can be done once daily or weekly while sin is ongoing. It is generally believed that as long as this “confession” is being done, God is ignoring the sin. Others believe that confession is listing as many sins as can be remembered to a priest so that he can forgive those sins which are listed. Some believe that if some type of penance is added to the confession, or money is given to a church, this increases the likelihood of finding forgiveness.
