Food was becoming an obsession bordering on worship, and the addict wanted to confess.
But not to a priest or a minister. The distraught person went to the computer.
"I have lost friends, jobs and opportunities because I put my addiction first. ... I have destroyed the perfectly good health that God gave me," the anonymous person wrote at dailyconfession.com. "I can't see how I can be forgiven. I knew better and I did not do better. I cannot stand myself."
Being forgiven and receiving peace with God is NOT a state of mind but a state of being AFTER being born again.
Making confession whether it be on the internet or to another sinner via face-to-partition-to-face may make you feel better but it will NEVER give you true peace from a forgiving Father who sent His only begotten Son to die for you and redeem you from your sinful nature.
The result of being forgiven by/of God is a new life and a supernatural desire to worship Him in righteousness for all of eternity, NOT merely a refreshed conscience (though in degrees this may be true of some) and a second wind to tackle life's new problems.
