Until I read this article, I had no idea that thousands of people everyday were confessing their sins on the internet. Thousands sense a lack and a need in their lives and are turning to the internet for answers and absolution?
My first reaction is horror and sadness that so many are really seeking God in their lives and don’t really know it. Instead they find some kind of human band aid to pacify the hurt and receive some kind of justification and faux forgiveness through the comments of other online seekers.
Finally though, I see a vast potential for true revival to come and bring the reality of God into the lives of countless thousands who do not currently know Jesus or a faithful representation of his church.
Update: Here is an article posted today about a Christian confession site that stresses prayer and confession directly to God.
