    This is not about the components of what it means to confess. It is more about what we as believers should confess.

    I do believe we need to be specific when it comes to confessing (coming in agreement with God and repenting)our individual sins, but I also believe it goes much deeper than that. As believers we are not to practice sin, yet we all find ourselves sinning. We confess the particular act of sin but never confess the original sin that lead to the act. In other words our confession does not deal with the root of the problem. We sin as believers when we walk in the flesh instead of the Spirit. The result of walking in the flesh is manifested in the act(s) of sin, so we confess the act(s), but never confess the reason for the act(s). Should not we also teach our people and practice ourselves the confession of the decision to walk in the flesh that leads to the act(s) of sin, as well as the act(s) themselves?

    Does this make since? What do you think? Is this unconfessed area of sin harming the Body of Christ? Does it make us less effective?

    Share your thoughts.

    God Bless,

    It seems that I was born again by my confession to God. I don't want to be lured out of continuing to confess and being honest before him.

    I have become dependant and addicted to faith in God and the one whom he sent into the World.

    I am disappointedly clueless when it comes to being effective.

    2 things concerning confessing your sin(s) are:

    1. Confessing your sin(s) without repentance.

    2. Confessing your sin(s) with repentance.

    Any thoughts?
