Incorporated in the worship service of a local congregation was a video montage of the large staff confessing their sins as church leaders. “We are here to say we have failed and we have been wrong and we ask your forgiveness.” They confessed being cold, slothful and not diligent in the study of God’s Word, or hearing the Word of God. “We have not honored the Spirit of God; we’ve had little of the mind of Christ; and we courted honor from men, not Christ.” I’ve never seen nor heard of such a confession and I’m trying to wrap my head around not only the confession, but the manner of presentation. James said, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:16 NIV).
