I don't know, Joe . . . I found the "I Screwed Up.com" site to be a little unsettling . . . like voyeurism or something. I went there out of curiousity (although I could write a book on ways I've screwed up in life) and felt my skin crawl. Weird. I'm just glad I have a personal one-on-one with Jesus and don't feel the need to publish my sins for the world to see.

What!?!?! You went there to read! You're supposed to go their confess! LOL! Actually I hadn;t really read any of it before promoting it. I thought about confessing some of my own sins but I thought people would figure out who I was and hold it against me. Good thing we can confess to Jesus!

Kelly

You are SO bad! NO! I didn't go there to read (LOL). . . I was curious as to how they set up the site, what questions, they asked, etc. I was actually surprised to see that you COULD read what people wrote!! I really think they should have a "Now What" link -- a link to give them more info on a new life in Christ so that those who truly want to seek a new way and a new life have the tools to do so.

And just for the record, there was NO JP from CT posting there - so your sins are safe with Jesus!

Well they do have a link for their church where you can contact them and/or find out more about the church. It does make you sad to see so many hurting people...

If this is how one chooses to confess then all thats left to do is pray . James5:16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.

I am surprised that there hasn't been something online in this vein before now. How long has it been up, anyway? Considering the easy access that the average citizen has to the internet, I think it actually makes sense(don't ask if I am in my right mind, I will plead the fifth..)Yes, it does seem to me that confessing your sins online does seem a bit drastic. On the other hand, those seeking emotional and spiritual wholeness are probably not as concerned with the public aspect of the internet. The search for relief is an intense propellant towards sites like this. A hungry man is not going to bicker over whether a plate has an onion on it before eating it. Just a thought...

Sorry...I didn't plan on posting the same comment twice. Ooops...

It is a little creepy -- I'm with Kelly on that. I did feel dirty going there. It's like Post Secret with a Christian twist. Weird.

That's cool you talked about the Donald Miller confession booth. Two summers ago , a woman from my church put up a confessional booth like that during Gay Pride week. She had amazing stories to share. Maybe you should get one going during Sail Fest -- what an experience that would be!!!!

My online confession is...

I read Paskewich's blog!

Whew... I feel much better now that its all out in the open!!!

lol. its become such a controversial topic. online confessional in my opinion have their real value. while i think confessing not God is a personal matter. but confessing publicly yet anonymously and recieving feed back on your confession is important too. the original confessions booths of the catholics were meant to gather information on the public. personally i found
www.creepyconfessions.com to be the best one.
