#Scandal – Would you confess your sins to anyone? [blog/reflection]

In ABC’s Scandal, we have witnessed Vice President Sally Langston murder her husband as a result of his infidelity and his sexuality. Sally wears her evangelical Christian values on her sleeve and has been carrying the heavy weight of conviction. During this season she has revealed that she is no longer hearing God’s voice. In an effort to hear God’s voice she is determined to confess her sins publicly, during a debate. Unless God gives her another sign, she set to reveal what she has done on national television. Ultimately she doesn’t do it because Fitz decides to throw the debate.

We may think she was crazy but Vice President Sally Langston is far off about confessing her sins.

In James 5 the Bible states following:
14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.

The Bible is pretty clear about what confessing sins can lead to.

Practicing Catholics confess their sins to an unidentified priest but confession to a priest is not a part of the Protestant tradition. For those of us who are not Catholic, would you confess your sins to another person in order to be healed? Would you confess your sins to another person in order to hear from God or deepen your connection with God? Post your comments below
