    The word says confess to one another
    James 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 man is powerful and effective.


    1 John 1
    9 If we confess our sins , he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.


    Acts 19
    18Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds.


    And there is more.

    1 John 1:9 Works everytime.

    Of course our confession should be to God and not another man.

    >>Do you believe we are to continue confessing sins?

    I think we should quit sinning, so that there is nothing to confess. If your going keep right on sinning, it will not do any good to confess it, because God will know your only sorry your not allowed to sin, and that your not at all sorry for being a sinner.

    I have to disagree with you, in part, JohnR7.

    There are some sins in life which are grieving but very difficult to stop.
    I know this as I am a person recovering from addiction.
    there is some sin that has me in thral only the power Of the Lord can change me and turn me from this sin.
    I am not perfect yet , so I still need to confess sin.

    1Jn. 1:8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the
    truth is not in us.

    Theres no way to stop sinning, but we do have an advocate-- Christ Jesus
    :help:

    The Bible says:

    They that knoweth to do good and doth it not-- to them is sin.

    Even the rightious man sinneth seven times in a day.

    :cry:

    but thanks be to Jesus for paying the price for our sins!!

    Are you sinless? You are the only one in the world who is if you say you are or you are deceived. Which would be more like it. (Deceived that is.)

    If you say you are without sin you are decieved, because to say such a thing is vanity and a sin in and of itself.

    As John the Evangelist makes clear, the children of God do not sin. I wonder who's children would like us to believe otherwise? :scratch:

    Still, that doesn't mean there aren't such people that do what is right.

    "Even a just man falls seven times a day." A fall isn't the same thing as a sin.

    As Marguerite Porete writes:

    Even Jesus never said he was without sin. It's a sin to say you are without sin. It ain't a sin to be without sin, though.

    Spoken like a true harlot. If your trying to say Jesus was a sinner, that would be blasphemy.

    The truth is, the reason He was able to take our place at calvery, was because He had no sin.

    2 Cor. 5:21
    He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

    If Jesus was a sinner, and He went around preaching that people should quit sinning, then that would make Him a hyprocrate. He would be preaching something that He himself was not doing. Jesus was not a hyprocrate.

    Jesus was tempted, even by Satan in the desert, but he new no sin. Which is why His death is of effect.

    :rolleyes: I didn't say that. What I meant was someone who is without sin -- Jesus being one example we can all agree one -- shouldn't say they are without sin. "If we say, 'We are without sin,' we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."

    Dear Solo66man;

    You said,

    1. (James 5:16) stated confess your "Sins" Not so! For one thing James was addressing Jews under a covenant realationship of works. (James 1:1) He told them to confess their "Faults" to each other volentarily so God could help them, not damn them if they didn't.

    2. Jewish Individuals confessing Jesus as their messiah "Once for salvation" was enough to save them eternally. Can you give me a scripture saying confessing was repeditiveness after the cross? (1 John 1:9)

    3. As for your comment on their being more scriptures, I say there are also more explainations by "Rightly dividing" (2 Timothy 2:15) God bless!

    Dear Joanr7;

    You said,

    1. "We should quit sinning, so that there is nothing to confess" Do you know anyone including yourself who has stop sinning in order to stop confessing?

    2. The wages of sin is "Death" not "Sorrow" You can be sorry all you want but without blood is no fogiveness! God bless!

    Dear BigEd;

    1. Your right about having difficulty with weaknesses of the flesh, as did Paul. (Romans 7:15,17,18,19,20,25)

    2. As to your claiming to be in need of confession due to no "Being perfect yet" I would ask if you had a scripture encouraging us to confess repeditively after salvation? God bless!
