Confession

CONFESSION

“Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of… Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate.” I Tim. 6:12-13


Two confessions under consideration

Two Confessions Under Consideration

  • The first comes before our baptism, and is mentioned in I Tim. 6.

  • The second is a Christian talking to his Father about the weaknesses of life.

  • Or talking with a trusted advisor.


Confession of faith in jesus

Confession Of Faith In Jesus

  • It is necessary – Romans 10:9-10; Matt. 10:32-33.

  • The content – I John 4:2-3; Phil. 2:11.

  • Example – Acts 8:37

  • What prompts us – Matt. 16:17; Rom. 10:9.

  • What hinders us – fear (John 7:13; 12:42-44)

    false teachers (2 John7)


Confession of sins

Confession of Sins

  • Confession of Jesus as Lord is ongoing.

  • So is confession of sin – I John 1:8ff.

  • Confession isn’t repentance, repentance should lead to confession to God. Acts 8:14-24

  • Or perhaps to a trusted friend – James 5:15f

  • “Confession is good for the soul, but bad for the reputation.”


Confession

  • “We confess our little faults only to persuade others that we have no great ones.”

  • “Promiscuous confession to promiscuous gatherings is not healthy. There are some things which God deals with in His private office.”

  • “Protestantism needs to develop a better method of dealing with personal guilt than public confession of general sinfulness. There is a need to particularize the guilt to get definitely rid of the burden.”


Public confession

Public Confession

  • We’ve always been taught, “Confession needs to be public if the sin is known to others.”

  • Not necessarily healthy…

  • But sometimes necessary…

    Do you need to make one of these confessions?
