Originally posted by chzen people would ask "What is the difference between confessing to a priest and confessing directly to God?" Exactly!!! What difference there is such that one would rather opt the latter over the former. If there is no difference pala, why wouldn't you choose the first one?

Originally posted by Tessaria The sacrament of reconciliation should not be treated as some mechanical thing that you have to undergo. Unless it is done with a sincerely contrite heart, what's the point? ::shrugs::
It is good, though, that you're not into 'fishing for religions'. But I do encourage you to look into your faith a bit deeper, rather than just treating is as a religion of (in)convenience. Know what I mean?anawim, good explanation.ahmed. Same goes with any other spiritual leader that you'll think of, I guess. In your case, how sure are you that your local imam (is that how you call your spiritual leader?) is "pure and sin-free"?
I could go into a lengthy explanation as to why there is a sacrament of reconciliation for Catholics, but anawim sums it up pretty well. And I don't know if ahmed is serious in pursuing this topic or was just making pithy comments.
