Confession – Admitting One’s Guilt

“But it is the word’s first meaning – confession of sins – that is usually the most difficult. It is never easy admitting to doing something you regret and are ashamed of, an act you attempted to keep secret or denied doing or tried to blame on someone else, perhaps arguing – to yourself as much as others – that it wasn’t actually a sin at all, or wasn’t nearly as bad as some people might claim. In the hard labor of growing up, one of the most agonizing tasks is becoming capable of saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ “(Jim Forest, Confession: Doorway to Forgiveness, pg. 15)
