Where in the Bible do we see the obligation to make private confession of sin? Why do we pray for the forgiveness of sins? What does it mean to forsake sin? What does it mean to “find mercy”? Why is the Roman Catholic view of penance wrong? What is public confession? According to Matthew 18 why are the courts of the church to sometimes get involved? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 15.6:
As every man is bound to make private confession of his sins to God, praying for the pardon thereof; upon which, and the forsaking of them, he shall find mercy; so he that scandelizeth his brother, or the Church of Christ, ought to be willing, by a private or public confession and sorrow for his sin, to declare his repentance to those that are offended; who are thereupon to be reconciled to him, and in love to receive him.
