    The scriptures use confession in at least two ways. In one sense, to confess is to state one’s faith in something, such as to confess that Jesus is the Christ (Matt. ; Rom. ; 1 Jn. –3; D&C ). In another sense, to confess is to admit one’s guilt, such as in a confession of sins.   However, on more technical matters, like sacramental confession, this is wholly inadequate. To be clear, a Catholic doctrine doesn’t need to always be spelled out in Scripture in order to be valid (learn more here). Sacred Scripture is just a cross-section of authentic Christian beliefs and practises. It is not a comprehensive encyclopedia of it.

    The more I read my Bible, the more deeply the Holy Spirit convicted me that I had grievously erred by trying to figure out how to do church successfully by reading a lot of books, visiting a lot of churches, and copying whatever was working (Confessions, 44). That conviction gave way to .

In , the English Parliament called upon.

    The Word Brings Salvation 9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved. 11 It is just as the Scripture says: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.”. The Lutheran Confessions are a summary and explanation of the Bible. They are not placed over the Bible. They do not take the place of the Bible. The Book of Concord is how Lutherans are able to say, together, as a church, "This is what we believe. This is what we teach. This is what we confess." The reason we have the Book of Concord is.
