the Christians to confess their sins to each other ( and not that they
should confess to priest/minister ) and so, after a person has become a
Christian, after they have baptized, having surrendered completely,
some write their confessions. Confessions
tell the story of the writer: typically, from the age of awareness to
the time of the confessions. Confessions can also be updated every five
or ten years, or at longer intervals.
Confessing sins is not a requirement ( a law ) in Jesus' doctrine. It is not like baptism, which is a prerequisite to salvation.
5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each
other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is
powerful and effective.
the Gospel Jesus tells us that a priest can mediate between men
and God to obtain remission of sins for a subject. This would render
'Baptism' useless! It is another method to control, invented by
the Catholic church, to trap stupid people.
JOH 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God.
