The Role of Guilt, Self-Blame, and Confession

Question: What is the role of guilt? And what is the role of self-blame for personal wrongs committed? What about confession of sins?

Answer: The role of guilt belongs to the self-wrecking parts of one’s self that persist in unconsciously doing what that same self then decries it has done. Self-blame is the unconscious advocate of guilt. True confession of one’s sins (original Aramaic meant to “miss the mark”) can be a benefit to a belabored heart. The real change comes in the moment that we see what we are, not as we think back over what we’ve done.
