Reality Check

Carolyn Magner

Repent and don’t repeat!

| October 26, 2011

Dear Carolyn,

My conscience is killing me. Years ago I had a fling with a married woman.  Now that I’m married to a great gal, I feel like I should confess my past sins. Do you think that’s a good idea? I want to prevent this from happening again.

Mark

Dear Mark,

A conscience doesn’t prevent sin, it prevents you from enjoying the sin.  Save the confessions for the priest.  No need to worry your new bride. You have learned your lesson and will never repeat that mistake. Right?

I’m just say’n,

Carolyn
