    CONFESSION CAN SET FREE FROM SIN: Do you know the story of Emperor Frederick the Great's visit to Potsdam Prison? Frederick spoke to each prisoner asking each one, "Why are you in prison?" The first said, "I don't really belong here. I am innocent." Another claimed, " I really shouldn't be here. I didn't get a fair trial." Still another said, "I'm not to blame; it is society's fault." One after another told the emperor that they were really innocent. They were victims of the system. They were unjustly imprisoned. One man sat quietly in the corner saying nothing. The emperor eventually asked him, "Whom do you blame for your imprisonment?" The old prisoner surprised the ruler as he said, "Nobody, sir. I am guilty and richly deserve my sentence." The emperor called the warden and said, "Come get this man out of here before he corrupts all these innocent men." CONFESSION SET HIM FREE.
