Confession as Guilt Relief, Not an Avenue for Change

Stanley urges the reader to analyze why I am making a confession. Is it simply to move on ... to get beyond some wrong I have done? How many times to I confess to someone so that I will feel better or so that I can repair some harm I have done?

How much better it would be if I treated confession as a way to change my behavior, as a way to redirect my actions.

This post was inspired by the book It Came From Within by Andy Stanley.
