Look you are just plain wrong.
I know the Holy Spirit without a doubt . I am not trying to judge I just hope whatever angle looking at in this approach Christ sees it right. I have experiences in the Holy Spirit , I know Christ. I did not get this idea at all.
I was in the Indy church movement. Nobody talked like this 20 years ago. They all believed in personal sins confession. This "calvinism or whatever it is" leaked in then took personal sins confession away somewhere. I believe it is very wrong just like John warns about being deceived in 1John1. You have to go to God. It matters period.
I am not a strident Catholic I know the Divine Mercy is soooo Good and Great. It is his forgiveness that gives us Christ. Always his forgiveness.
'So the only reason we confess our sins is so we can be saved' is what you appear to be saying johngrace.
What other possible reason could there be for it? Perhaps because it is deadly to us right here and right now and that confessing to one another helps us grow spiritually? Hardly a "dinner mint" johngrace.
3 John 1:2 - Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
I totally get that brother and God bless you for it.
I hope you don't see me as some sort of anti-catholic bigot johngrace but FWIW my motivations,such as I can muster,are because I love the brethren.
Well they'd better be anyway!
