A Web site I visited recently which seeks to explain Catholic doctrine and beliefs to Protestants contained the statement “Protestants do not believe in confession.” The statement is incorrect insofar as Protestants do not practice auricular confession (confessing ones’ sins to a priest in order to receive forgiveness).

That statement along with others I have seen shows that there is a. Augustine proved that auricular confession was NOT the practice of the Church of Rome in the late 4th/early 5th century. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the practice of confession changed throughout history and the current version did not get adopted until after Irish missionaries utilized it in the 7th century.

The priesthood generates great power via the doctrine of auricular confession. Despite this, the concept is not a Biblical one. We search in vain in the Bible for any word supporting the doctrine of "auricular confession" (the official title for confession to an authorized priest in a confession box.

The practice of auricular confession is not based on Biblical, but rather on pagan principles. Chiniquy sees the similarity of the auricular confession in light of Romanism: "Let those who want more information on that subject read the poems of Juvenal, Propertius, and Tibellus.

While the Church of Rome tends to claim that its beliefs come from sacred scripture or the traditions of the original apostles, the idea of auricular confession and penance did not come from either source–they are late heresies, essentially adopted from non-Christian sources.

The form of confession was thus a written text that served an oral purpose, as an aid to the actual practice of auricular confession.

In the proposed ACNA Prayer Book it is the section which begins with explanatory preface titled “Concerning the Rites of Healing.” I have reproduced that preface below.

The "ear confession" as we know it today is an invention of Irish monks (some 6th century. I'm not sure). Before that time, only heavy sins (especially renouncing Christ) were confessed in front of whole congregation.

Private confession allowed to confess all sins. This practice spread with Irish missionaries quickly. “The rites of healing” of the proposed ACNA Prayer The doctrine and practice of auricular confession book incorporate unreformed Catholic doctrine and practices.

They include forms for the sacraments of penance and unction, the practice of auricular confession, the use of sacramentals, and the practice of reserving the sacrament and communicating the sick from the reserved sacrament. During the Reformation the Church of England resisted attempts to have all references to private confession and absolution removed from the prayer book.

In the 19th century, the Oxford Movement encouraged a revival of private confession, and it was accepted by some Anglo-Catholics. Many Anglicans, however, favour the general confession and absolution of the Communion service.

Historically, the practice of auricular confession was highly controversial within Anglicanism. When priests began to hear confessions, they responded to criticisms by pointing to the fact that such is explicitly sanctioned in "The Order for the Visitation of the Sick" in the Book of Common Prayer, which contains the following direction.

AURICULAR CONFESSION The obligation by divine law of confessing one's grave sins, committed after baptism, to a qualified priest.

It is called auricular confession because normally the. Those facts are private confession to a priest known as auricular confession, the repetitive nature of confession and penance for all known sin, the practice of private penance as a satisfaction for sin and finally the necessity for the absolution of a priest.

These teachings of the Roman Church can be traced back many centuries. This is all too common when men do not preach and practice a Biblical doctrine of confession.

The challenge is first to restore the meaning of confession as taught in the Scriptures. As long as confession is seen as a Romanist doctrine, we have no. The obligation to confess is basic doctrine, but the scriptures prove silent or ambiguous when the question shifts to what, when, where, to whom, and even why to confess.

This article examines current and past Latter-day Saint doctrine and practice, the reasons why Latter-day Saints confess, the scriptural background, and confession in other.

ELCA congregations make the same affirmation. Here we have a rejection of penance and auricular confession as necessary for salvation.

Christianity Edit. In Christian faith and practice (), confession is similar to a criminal confession -- an admission of one's practice is conducted between a confessor and a priest, often within a confessional booth.
