    Well...it Was More Like "Withheld the Whole Truth"...

    I was a very shame-ridden little kid.  I held myself to high moral standards because I didn't really believe in forgiveness, even though the Church said "if you ask God for forgiveness, you will get it."  I thought that notion was absurd, because then that...

    when i was in primary school, my school tried to stick to a programme of a fortnightly confession (it lasted about 4 months) - we used to have to go to confession every 2 weeks when the priest came to the school - i used to get so sick of going in there and saying "it...

    Too Ashamed To Confess

    I don't remember any time in my life, from the time I was the tiniest child, when I wasn't a cross dresser. Women's clothing and behavior has been a fascination for me from the get-go. I always knew I had to hide it, but the guilt and sin aspects didn't kick in until puberty. I...

    What Child Could Possibly Sin That Much?

    I was raised Roman Catholic. It was utterly ridiculous that confession was mandatory.To satiate the perverted needs of the hierophants, I fabricated sins every week and never did penance.By the age of fifteen, I became a non-ritualistic Wicca.Ha!

    This Takes Me Back.

    I went to a Catholic school and I was sooo boring as a child.   I didn't lie, cheat, swear or steal.  So, I would lie to the priest during confession saying things like "I got smart with my parents" or "I lied."  Looking back now, that...

    Ha, Ha, This Is Funny!!

    I didn't really lie... I just didn't tell some things.. Ha ha, and once a priest told ME HIS problems and sins, this was pretty funny... And once a priest wasn't in the mood to listen my sins, so he just told me what I have to pray and God will forgive me. He even prayed some...

    Jesus

    Sooo, when did Jesus ever say to confess your sins to a priest? I thought he just said that "ask and it is forgiven" to God the Father alone?

    In my opinion, those who think everyone is lying to them has either been lied to all their lives or is a liar themselves. In my case, I've been lied to for years and years.
