Dear Dr. Boli: I never have understood confession. Why in the world confess to something that is logged already? Perhaps the act of confession absolves the sin, the sinner and the redeemer. —Sincerely, Sin Boldly.

Dear Sir or Madam: Christians confess their sins to God, not to make God aware of what they have been up to, but to make their own lives seem more interesting than they really are.
