INTRODUCTION
Currently, many believe that it is not necessary to confess sin
because they call it a mere weakness linked to the environment
and hereditary aspects. In this lesson, we will see that the Bible
does not teach like this. In his epistle, the apostle John writes
that sin is real and, therefore, it is a danger to the life of the
believer, as its consequences are tragic. The biblical guideline is
that, if a sin occurs, it must be confessed and abandoned as
evidence of repentance so that the repentant believer can receive
God's forgiveness (1 John 2:9; cf. Ps 32:5).

KEYWORD:
Confession
10
11
I – CONFESSION OF SIN
I – CONFESSION OF SIN
1. Definition. The verb “confess”, from the Hebrew word
yadah, appears as “throw”, “throw”, “throw” (1 Kings 8.33), a
word that comes from the verbal root of hadah which means
“to extend the hand”. This word is present 900 times in the Old
Testament, appearing with the meaning of “become aware”,
“know”, “recognize”. The word appears in the OT in the
context of confession of sin (Ps 32:5).
12
In the New Testament, the Greek verb for “confess” is
homologéo, which means “to agree with”, “to consent”, “to
grant”. This word is made up of the root homou, together with
people gathered; and logos, the act of speaking. The word
homologue occurs 25 times in the New Testament (Mt 7.23,
Rom 10.9,10; James 5.16). There is an important Greek verb for
“confess”, eksomologéo (Mt 3.6), which means “to profess”, “to
openly and cheerfully acknowledge someone’s honor”; “publicly
promise to do something”, “commit to”. Therefore, we can say
that confessing is a way of declaring what one believes or knows.
13
2. The biblical confession of sin. The general biblical
teaching on confession of sin brings the idea of
recognizing it and making a confession, as forgiveness
depends on this act (Ps 32.5; 1 John 1.9). This confession
may be at the time of conversion; or after it, when sins
committed may be against God or against a brother (Mt
5.21,22). It is important to highlight, however, that,
according to biblical teaching, it was only after the
confession of sins that one could truly live a life of prayer
and communion with God (Ne 1.6; Ps 66.18; Luke 18.9-
14). 14
3. The symbol of confession of sin. In the act of confessing
sins, the person autonomously recognizes the sins committed
and that, therefore, they are unworthy of being in the presence
of God. She recognizes her sinful nature before the Most High
(Rm 3.10-12). Then, in sincere repentance and confession, he
seeks what is guaranteed to him through the Word of God:
forgiveness. Thus, whoever experiences the sincere and humble
act of confessing sin reaches God's mercy (Pr 28.13). Then the
soul is comforted and spiritual life is restored.

SYNOPSIS I

II – THE DANGER OF
UNCONFESSED SIN
18
II – THE DANGER OF UNCONFESSED SIN
1. The evils of unconfessed sins. When we read and analyze
Proverbs 28:13, we realize that confession of sin is not only a
Jewish teaching, but also a Christian one. The Epistle of John
corroborates the need to confess sin, leave it and achieve
forgiveness (1 John 1.9). On the other hand, whoever ignores the
confession of sin, hiding it, lives a life of appearance and
spiritual death; similar to what our first parents, Adam and Eve,
lived when trying to hide their sins before God (Gen 3.8); as well
as King David, the man after God's own heart, who sought to
hide his sins from the Lord (2 Sam 11; 12).
19
2. The consequences of Adam and Eve's sin. The biblical
reality of sin can be seen in the first couple, Adam and Eve,
when they sinned and, therefore, received due sentences (Gen
3.14-19). Furthermore, our first parents lost the right to live in
the most perfect and beautiful environment that God created
(Gen. 3:24). Therefore, in the lives of Adam and Eve there are
tragic consequences of sin, such as: changes in the physical
condition of both; the transition from immortal to mortal
nature; diverse tensions in the human race and in nature. Thus,
we know that the consequences of the sin of our first parents
were not limited to them, but permeated the entire human and
natural race (Rm 5.12-14).
20
3. The consequences of David's sin. King David paid a high
price for his sin. The Bible shows that, therefore, the sword
would not leave his house (2 Sam 12.10-12). Chapters 11 and 12
of 2 Samuel reveal the conflict and sense of guilt that marked
the life of a man who, for a certain time, hid his sin, bringing
him moral illnesses and affliction that led him to groan. Psalm
32 shows that, by remaining silent, not confessing his sin, David
became increasingly weak, losing his spiritual vigor (Ps 32:2-4).
Psalm 51 shows the king's confession of sin, recognizing all his
mistakes so that they could be forgiven and the psalmist purified
(Ps 51:2-6).
The Word of God shows the need to confess
sin, leave it and thus achieve forgiveness.

III – CONFESSION OF SIN: A
PATH OF HEALING AND
RESTORATION
23
III – CONFESSION OF SIN: A PATH OF
HEALING AND RESTORATION
1. Confessing sin to God. According to biblical teaching, the
confession of sins must first be addressed to God, through his
Son, as only He can forgive our sins (Ps 51.3,4; Mt 9.2,6).
Throughout his ministry, the Lord Jesus said to the sinful
woman: “Your sins are forgiven you” (Luke 7:48). In the Our
Father prayer, the Lord Jesus taught: “[Father] Forgive us our
debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Mt 6.12). In 1 John 1, we read
that our sins must be confessed to Christ (1 John 1:7-9). In this
way, forgiving sin is a prerogative of God the Father through the
Lord Jesus, through his work on Calvary.
24
“[...] Hiding sin is deciding to
embark on a journey of spiritual
and emotional suffering.”
25
2. Achieving healing and restoration. The golden text of this lesson
reminds us that hiding sin is deciding to embark on a journey of spiritual
and emotional suffering. But those who put aside pride and arrogance to
walk the humble path of confessing sin live a lighter life. There is
nothing more restorative than enjoying the Lord’s mercies (Pr 28:13).
There is nothing more consoling than confessing your sin and leaving it
definitively, as this way we will find rest for our soul. This entire process
of confessing and abandoning sin reveals the effectiveness of God's
ministry of reconciliation through Jesus Christ (2 Cor 5:18). Whoever
does this finds the path to healing and restoration, as we read in the
words of the psalmist: “While I was silent, my bones grew old through
my roaring all day long. [...] I confessed my sin to you and I did not cover
up my wickedness; I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord;
and you forgave the evil of my sin” (Ps 51:3,5).
Confession of sin is the only path to healing and
restoration of body, soul and spirit.
SYNOPSIS III

CONCLUSION
In our Christian walk we are subject to sin. Covering it up
and living a superficial spiritual life is not a biblical option
for the path of healing and restoration. Therefore, a
journey of forgiveness is only possible with the
confession of the sin committed and the resolution to
abandon it once and for all. Whoever does this will enjoy
endless divine mercies
1. What idea does the general teaching of the Bible bring
about the confession of sin?
The general biblical teaching on confession of sin brings
the idea of recognizing it and making a confession, as
forgiveness depends on this act (Ps 32.5; 1 John 1.9).
2. What does the person recognize in the act of confessing
sin?
In the act of confessing sins, the person autonomously
recognizes the sins committed and that, therefore, they
are unworthy of being in the presence of God.
Reviewing the content

3. What can we understand in Proverbs 28:13?
When we read and analyze Proverbs 28:13, we realize that
confession of sin is not only a Jewish teaching, but also a
Christian one.
4. According to the lesson, what can happen to those who ignore
the biblical recommendation to confess their sin?
Hiding sin is deciding to embark on a journey of spiritual and
emotional suffering.
5. According to biblical teaching, confession of sins should be
addressed primarily to whom?
According to biblical teaching, the confession of sins must first
be addressed to God, through his Son, as only He can forgive our
sins. 29

  • 9. INTRODUCTION Currently, many believe that it is not necessary to confess sin because they call it a mere weakness linked to the environment and hereditary aspects. In this lesson, we will see that the Bible does not teach like this. In his epistle, the apostle John writes that sin is real and, therefore, it is a danger to the life of the believer, as its consequences are tragic. The biblical guideline is that, if a sin occurs, it must be confessed and abandoned as evidence of repentance so that the repentant believer can receive God's forgiveness (1 John 2:9; cf. Ps 32:5). 9
  • 12. I – CONFESSION OF SIN 1. Definition. The verb “confess”, from the Hebrew word yadah, appears as “throw”, “throw”, “throw” (1 Kings 8.33), a word that comes from the verbal root of hadah which means “to extend the hand”. This word is present 900 times in the Old Testament, appearing with the meaning of “become aware”, “know”, “recognize”. The word appears in the OT in the context of confession of sin (Ps 32:5). 12
  • 13. In the New Testament, the Greek verb for “confess” is homologéo, which means “to agree with”, “to consent”, “to grant”. This word is made up of the root homou, together with people gathered; and logos, the act of speaking. The word homologue occurs 25 times in the New Testament (Mt 7.23, Rom 10.9,10; James 5.16). There is an important Greek verb for “confess”, eksomologéo (Mt 3.6), which means “to profess”, “to openly and cheerfully acknowledge someone’s honor”; “publicly promise to do something”, “commit to”. Therefore, we can say that confessing is a way of declaring what one believes or knows. 13
  • 14. 2. The biblical confession of sin. The general biblical teaching on confession of sin brings the idea of recognizing it and making a confession, as forgiveness depends on this act (Ps 32.5; 1 John 1.9). This confession may be at the time of conversion; or after it, when sins committed may be against God or against a brother (Mt 5.21,22). It is important to highlight, however, that, according to biblical teaching, it was only after the confession of sins that one could truly live a life of prayer and communion with God (Ne 1.6; Ps 66.18; Luke 18.9- 14). 14
  • 15. 3. The symbol of confession of sin. In the act of confessing sins, the person autonomously recognizes the sins committed and that, therefore, they are unworthy of being in the presence of God. She recognizes her sinful nature before the Most High (Rm 3.10-12). Then, in sincere repentance and confession, he seeks what is guaranteed to him through the Word of God: forgiveness. Thus, whoever experiences the sincere and humble act of confessing sin reaches God's mercy (Pr 28.13). Then the soul is comforted and spiritual life is restored. 15
  • 16. The biblical teaching on confession of sin brings the idea of recognizing it and making a confession. SYNOPSIS I 16
  • 17. 17 II – THE DANGER OF UNCONFESSED SIN
  • 18. 18 II – THE DANGER OF UNCONFESSED SIN 1. The evils of unconfessed sins. When we read and analyze Proverbs 28:13, we realize that confession of sin is not only a Jewish teaching, but also a Christian one. The Epistle of John corroborates the need to confess sin, leave it and achieve forgiveness (1 John 1.9). On the other hand, whoever ignores the confession of sin, hiding it, lives a life of appearance and spiritual death; similar to what our first parents, Adam and Eve, lived when trying to hide their sins before God (Gen 3.8); as well as King David, the man after God's own heart, who sought to hide his sins from the Lord (2 Sam 11; 12).
  • 19. 19 2. The consequences of Adam and Eve's sin. The biblical reality of sin can be seen in the first couple, Adam and Eve, when they sinned and, therefore, received due sentences (Gen 3.14-19). Furthermore, our first parents lost the right to live in the most perfect and beautiful environment that God created (Gen. 3:24). Therefore, in the lives of Adam and Eve there are tragic consequences of sin, such as: changes in the physical condition of both; the transition from immortal to mortal nature; diverse tensions in the human race and in nature. Thus, we know that the consequences of the sin of our first parents were not limited to them, but permeated the entire human and natural race (Rm 5.12-14).
  • 20. 20 3. The consequences of David's sin. King David paid a high price for his sin. The Bible shows that, therefore, the sword would not leave his house (2 Sam 12.10-12). Chapters 11 and 12 of 2 Samuel reveal the conflict and sense of guilt that marked the life of a man who, for a certain time, hid his sin, bringing him moral illnesses and affliction that led him to groan. Psalm 32 shows that, by remaining silent, not confessing his sin, David became increasingly weak, losing his spiritual vigor (Ps 32:2-4). Psalm 51 shows the king's confession of sin, recognizing all his mistakes so that they could be forgiven and the psalmist purified (Ps 51:2-6).
  • 21. The Word of God shows the need to confess sin, leave it and thus achieve forgiveness. SYNOPSIS II 21
  • 22. 22 III – CONFESSION OF SIN: A PATH OF HEALING AND RESTORATION
  • 23. 23 III – CONFESSION OF SIN: A PATH OF HEALING AND RESTORATION 1. Confessing sin to God. According to biblical teaching, the confession of sins must first be addressed to God, through his Son, as only He can forgive our sins (Ps 51.3,4; Mt 9.2,6). Throughout his ministry, the Lord Jesus said to the sinful woman: “Your sins are forgiven you” (Luke 7:48). In the Our Father prayer, the Lord Jesus taught: “[Father] Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Mt 6.12). In 1 John 1, we read that our sins must be confessed to Christ (1 John 1:7-9). In this way, forgiving sin is a prerogative of God the Father through the Lord Jesus, through his work on Calvary.
  • 24. 24 “[...] Hiding sin is deciding to embark on a journey of spiritual and emotional suffering.”
  • 25. 25 2. Achieving healing and restoration. The golden text of this lesson reminds us that hiding sin is deciding to embark on a journey of spiritual and emotional suffering. But those who put aside pride and arrogance to walk the humble path of confessing sin live a lighter life. There is nothing more restorative than enjoying the Lord’s mercies (Pr 28:13). There is nothing more consoling than confessing your sin and leaving it definitively, as this way we will find rest for our soul. This entire process of confessing and abandoning sin reveals the effectiveness of God's ministry of reconciliation through Jesus Christ (2 Cor 5:18). Whoever does this finds the path to healing and restoration, as we read in the words of the psalmist: “While I was silent, my bones grew old through my roaring all day long. [...] I confessed my sin to you and I did not cover up my wickedness; I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord; and you forgave the evil of my sin” (Ps 51:3,5).
  • 26. Confession of sin is the only path to healing and restoration of body, soul and spirit. SYNOPSIS III 26
  • 27. 27 CONCLUSION In our Christian walk we are subject to sin. Covering it up and living a superficial spiritual life is not a biblical option for the path of healing and restoration. Therefore, a journey of forgiveness is only possible with the confession of the sin committed and the resolution to abandon it once and for all. Whoever does this will enjoy endless divine mercies
  • 28. 1. What idea does the general teaching of the Bible bring about the confession of sin? The general biblical teaching on confession of sin brings the idea of recognizing it and making a confession, as forgiveness depends on this act (Ps 32.5; 1 John 1.9). 2. What does the person recognize in the act of confessing sin? In the act of confessing sins, the person autonomously recognizes the sins committed and that, therefore, they are unworthy of being in the presence of God. Reviewing the content 28
  • 29. 3. What can we understand in Proverbs 28:13? When we read and analyze Proverbs 28:13, we realize that confession of sin is not only a Jewish teaching, but also a Christian one. 4. According to the lesson, what can happen to those who ignore the biblical recommendation to confess their sin? Hiding sin is deciding to embark on a journey of spiritual and emotional suffering. 5. According to biblical teaching, confession of sins should be addressed primarily to whom? According to biblical teaching, the confession of sins must first be addressed to God, through his Son, as only He can forgive our sins. 29
