-Are we not to confess our sins to God as it says in Romans 10:10 and 1John 1:9?

Few of us could even remember them all! If confession is necessary for the remission of sin, where is the provision for the bad things done we cannot recall? What is 'confessing our sins'?

And for the ones we can recall, how to get rid of what led us to them?

To look at it one way: If sins did count, Christ saved us as sinners:.1Timothy 1:15. It wasn't required that one first had to qualify by following a lot of does and don'ts such as those people back then under the ancient.Mosaic Law were supposed to, but they didn't anyhow.(*). How much more then does the saving apply if we still have faults?.John 3:17; Matthew 9:13 "...I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." Matthew 18:11 "For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.".Luke 15:7....

Does the first sin after you became a spiritual person of love rescind His sacrifice? Does it stop us from being His workmanship? Does God know we still sin? Yes! Does He 'magico presto'.eradicate all capability.(subconscious mindsets).to sin once we accept Him? Isn't it instead that He has made us accepted by what He did when they crucified Him?

It's because of the plan of God for us that there is opportunity for character development?.2Peter 3:18. And why would character development be at all desirable anyhow? Is it just to be better so we all get along better? Is that it? No! This is it.

Has He become our intercessor?.Romans 8:34; Ephesians 2:5. Did Emmanuel pay with His life to open the way to the Father?.1Corinthians 7:23; Matthew 20:28; 1Timothy 2:6.

Has all sin, which is missing the mark of living with a higher consciousness, now been paid for? We were all subject to the lower consciousness of missing the mark because of having no choice early in life available to us regarding the ego level functioning of mankind?

Because eternity is only in the present, what we call the past and what we call the future is only the perception of the present. By changing the present, the past and future is looked after. This is hard to come to grips with from the ego level where we see history, but easier to comprehend from the far grander higher consciousness level, eternity.

Does God look at our sins.(past, present and future).or our spirits made perfect?.Romans 8:27; Hebrews 12:9,23. And why?.Romans 4:17 "...God, who quickens the dead and calls those things which be not as though they were."

Paul tells us to go beyond teachings that keep binding us to physical do's and don'ts:.Hebrews 6:1

The word 'confess' as used in Romans 10:10 and 1John 1:9, in the original, means 'to assent to', 'to agree with', 'to acknowledge', 'to realize'.

Luke 12:8 "Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men.(what this."confess me before men".means, see on Luke 12:8), him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God."

'Confessing sins', in context.(1John 1:3-7).refers to a relationship with God. 1John 1:9 is saying that if we realize that we have fallen short of this intimate relationship, Christ will 'send away this separation'.(original for word  'unrighteousness' there).from the Father. So the key is to be close to what Christ is.

1John 1:10 is saying that if we think we have not ever missed the mark since being converted, we are seeing through a glass darkly:.1Corinthians 13:12. God wants us to live life, learning what works for our best as we go along and as quickly as one can, so negatives can be avoided.

In this relationship with the Creator is perfect love, unlike anything you have previously encountered or knew.

Romans 10:10 with Luke 6:45 and Matthew 12:34,35 show us that the heart is the key. When we see and admit our faults, we thereby recognize them and hopefully have the attitude of wanting to be rid of them and make decisions to so do. Then the Holy Spirit has something with which to work.

When one is open with himself about shortcomings as to God's standard of love.(1John 4:8,16).he is in the attitude necessary for the Christ presence to help us:.1Timothy 1:5; Hebrews 2:18; 8:6; 9:15; Jude 1:20,21

Christ took all sin for all time upon Him so we could have a relationship with the Father.(read John 17th chapter). Now He is there to help us get delivered from what still is hurting us:.Hebrews 9:28; 1John 3:3. He is the captain of our salvation.(original is 'deliverance'):.Hebrews 2:10; Jude 1:24; Ephesians 5:25,26 "...Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it, that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word."

If one is willing to be cleansed of whatever attitudes have brought problems into his or her life, well, that's all that's needed:.Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Emmanuel unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.".It's speaking of leaving the low consciousness level for the higher consciousness level:.Philippians 3:13-15.

One in a relationship with Christ and the Father is of course going to talk to Him about things. You are in an intimate relationship. Christ hears and helps. Again, Jude 1:24

The Father does not any longer see your sins and no longer wants to hear them, Christ's sacrifice being just that precious to the Father in the exchange of your sins for His righteousness.

He would rather hear thankfulness for what He has done for you. The Father sees the spiritual you when in this energy called Christ, sees you as holy, righteous and perfect and sins no longer count:.Romans 4:17 "...God, who quickens the dead and calls those things which be not as though they were."

That is why, because of what Christ has done and is doing for us.(1Peter 1:5), we can have confidence in coming to the Father, even if sin is still in our lives and may even still be when He comes:.1John 2:28; Hebrews 10:35; 3:6,14; Ephesians 3:12

Now sins will cause heartache until you move from them and with Christ's help you can. Example Derek's life

The Father and Christ know you and me still have shortcomings.(1John 3:20), but because of Christ's sacrifice, they no longer are counted against you in the relationship. Beautiful forgiveness isn't it? Did not even He say?.Matthew 18:21,22
   The impetus for pursuing that which you now know to be true of you:.1John 3:1-3

The true gospel has power for deliverance.(Romans 1:16).for those who learn and apply it:.1John 3:3; James 1:27; 2Peter 3:2..Study the subject of 'Righteousness' in this regard. 

James 5:16 also talks about confessing faults. Word there for 'faults' is not the same as the original word for 'sin'.(missing the mark). The word 'faults' here means 'fall beside' or, off track for a while, like some people just have a hard time making themselves study and thinking about what they have studied, which would all help to keep one on track. Little by little their Christ consciousness can dissipate:.Jude 1:20,21.

So here it is not talking about your 'miss the mark' faults but rather one's daily efforts in God and how lukewarm you may have discovered them to be:.Luke 10:38-42.

-If sin no longer counts, why did Paul put such an emphasis on the law in Romans 7:12 as being holy, just and good and why does Paul also talk about a spiritual warfare and striving against sin as in 2Corinthians 10:4, Ephesians 6:12 and Hebrews 12:4

-If sin doesn't now count, why does Paul say 'not to sin' as in 1Corinthians 15:34?

'Don't miss the mark in awakening to righteousness, because those without this knowledge have missed this mark', would be a better translation.
