This one is tough for me to answer, because I don't fully understand the dynamic behind this.
I mean, I DO, but I have no Scriptural counter-argument yet for those who say it's unnecessary.

All I have is this:

When I apologize to someone, it certainly feels better to say it out loud,
and to hear that person whom I have wronged tell me that he/she forgives me.


Know what I mean?

no no no no noo no no no no no no no no no no no no no

A priest forgiving you is like him judging you and giving himself authority above you. He is no better than you and basically the only thing your doing is telling him about the time you farted on an old lady, then stole her wig.

The priest acts as a representative of God to help us through the process to receive God's grace.
He lets you know that if you really are sorry for the things you've done,
you ARE absolved of your sins.
So who does the forgiving? The priest?
No.
God.

I agree, in theory.
Clearly most priests probably sin LESS than I do, but God does not love them MORE. I totally get that.

That doesn't make any sense to me.

ok well i think that if you are going to have a REAL, in-depth relationship with God, yes, God, then apologizing to him should be what you are worried about, and that should resolve it for you. I mean, how much more direct does it get than that?

nah mean?
