Why do you have to go to a priest to have your sins forgiven?

03-18-2018Rev. Scott Holmer

Often, we hear the question posed to us as Catholics, "Why do you have to go to a priest to have your sins forgiven?" Imagine two brothers walking in Israel two thousand years ago. One brother tells his brother good news: "I have met Jesus, who I believe is the Christ, let us go visit Him for He has the authority to forgive us all our sins for He is God in the flesh!" The other brother retorts smugly, "Oh, I do not need to go to Jesus for confession, I can go directly to God!" Once we go down this deluded road of "self-salvation," Jesus and the Church are seen as unnecessary.
