I realize from reading all the scriptures about how we should confess with our mouth, let's me know that confession is good for the soul. Jesus said to confess our faults one to another , but SO of us would rather almost die to say we were wrong about something. If confessing is good for the healing of the soul and body; then I wonder why more us aren't confessing to each other our wrong doings.
If Jesus tells us to confess to one another, then we as bothers and sisters in Christ should be obedient to his word. I have always tried to live my life according to the word of God; and if I hurt anyone in any kind of way, I try to make it right with that person. If I'm wrong then it's up to me to be a women enough to admit my wrong doings. I would go to the person , tell them I'm sorry and ask their forgiveness because that's what the word of God say to do. we must always confess to our sins Jesus and confess our faults one to another in God.
