"He who covers his transgressions will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will be no mercy" (Proverbs 28.13).

The conditions under which they may receive forgiveness of God, is free, fair and reasonable. The Lord requires us to forgiveness of sins undergo any suffering. We do not take long and tiresome journey, or perform painful penance, we ensure you that by God's mercy or atone for his transgressions.

But he who confesses his sin, and leaves him, there is grace.

The Apostle writes: "Therefore confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that ye may be healed" (James 5:16). Confess your sins to God, who alone can forgive its flaws and one another. When you're insulted your friend or neighbor, you must admit his mistake and his duty to forgive from the heart. Then you ask God for forgiveness, because brother, whom you have wounded is the property of God, and if it hurt, it sin against his Creator and Redeemer. The case is presented to one true Mediator, our glorious High Priest, who "wore all experienced temptation as we are, yet without sin" and who is "unable to sympathize with our weaknesses" (Hebrews 4:15) and can cleanse each spot from iniquity.

Those who have humbled your heart before God and did not recognize my guilt, yet fulfilled the first condition of acceptance. If we have not experienced true repentance, if we are right in the heart humble, contrite spirit to confess their sins and not odious to his guilt, then we truly have begged for forgiveness of sin. And did not ask if we truly, do not find peace with God.

The only reason why we lack the forgiveness of sins committed is that we are not willing to humble your heart and do not want to conform to the conditions of divine truth.

They were given to the detailed instructions. Confession of sin, whether public or private, to be honest, to be made freely and not be enforced by the sinner. Not also be done casually and carelessly, and may be enforced by those who still have no clear idea of the terrible nature of sin.

Only faith, based on the depth of our inner, finds its way to the eternal mercy of God.

The Psalmist says: "The Lord is near to those who are contrite in heart, saving people, which is of a contrite spirit" (Psalm 34.19).

True religion is always a special character: it contains confession of sins. Sins can be such that it can only bring them to God, are sins to be confessed to those who have caused harm, and may also be the sins of a public nature, and they should be publicly confessed. Every religion, it should be clear and specific and should include a list of sins, which we are guilty.

Religion without sincere repentance and no remedy is not pleasant to God. In the life of the material change must occur, everything is dear to God, must be removed.

This is the result of true repentance of sins. What we do is clearly stated: "Wash yourselves, be clean, eliminate me of their evil deeds from the eyes, cease to do evil. Learn to do good. Seek the right, take action against violence, the law helps make the orphan, the widow ujímejte ( Isaiah 1,16.17). "When the wicked turn from his sin, it will replace, who reflects what will be governed by the regulations leading to life and will not do iniquity, will certainly live and die" (Ezekiel 33.15).

The Apostle Paul writes about repentance: "Look, what led you to this grief according to God's will: what you wake up in sincerity, a willingness to apologize, what concern, what fear, as an attempt to punish the culprit. All this you have shown you in properly preserve things then, "(2 Corinthians 7.11).

Sin destroyed the moral sense, it does not recognize the faults transgress its nature and neither realize the enormity of the evil perpetrated and not give in until the persuasive power of the Holy Spirit, left to their sins partially blind. His beliefs are sincere and genuine. For each guilty plea requires an apology for his action and declared that had he not been certain circumstances, never would have never committed this or that, what is Karan.

True repentance is manifested by a man bears his own guilt and confesses to her without deceit and hypocrisy.

As the poor publican, who lifted not his eyes to heaven, exclaims: "O God, have mercy on me a sinner!" (Luke 18.13).

All those who admit their guilt, we are justified, for Jesus will plead for every penitent in blood.

Examples of true repentance and humility, which are contained in the word of God, to show the true spirit of religion, which is no excuse for sin, or a desire for vindication. Paul did not try to apologize. Recounts his sin in the darkest colors, and not trying to diminish his guilt. He writes: "When I got it from the chief priests I put many believers imprisoned, and when they had to be killed, I approved of it. After all the synagogues, I gave the sentence and urged them to blaspheme. Like a madman, I going to pursue them even in foreign cities "(Acts 26,10.11). He does not hesitate to declare that "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. I belong to them in the first place" (1 Timothy 1:15).

Humble and broken heart, filled with genuine regret, appreciate God's love and sacrifice on Calvary. The son of a loving father admits his guilt, the penitent bring all his sins before God. It is written: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
