  1. Why is confession an important part of receiving forgiveness?

    1 John 1:9
    English Standard Version (ESV)

    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  2. Well some believe Jesus just continues to forgive one’s sins forever.

    Yet John tells us that if one sins he or she has never seen God, nor knows God. A Spiritual Christian does not sin, and if such a person does sin there is no repentance.

    (1 John 3:4-6) “Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin.No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.”

    (Hebrews 10:26-31) “If, after we have been given knowledge of the truth, we should deliberately commit any sins, then there is no longer any sacrifice for them. There is left only the dreadful prospect of judgment and of the fiery wrath that is to devour your enemies. Anyone who disregards the Law of Moses is ruthlessly put to death on the word of two witnesses or three; and you may be sure that anyone who tramples on the Son of God, and who treats the blood of the covenant which sanctified him as if it were not holy, and who insults the Spirit of grace, will be condemned to a far severer punishment. We are all aware who it was that said: Vengeance is mine; I will vindicate his people. It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
