How many people think that Catholics believe they can do whatever they want and they will be fine as long as they go to confession?
I just came across a statement by a protestant on another site and she said just that, "I might as well be Catholic and do whatever I want and go to confession."
Just wondering how many people share that sentiment?

i dont agree with what the person said. im sure there are some catholics that do but those are also the ones that give other catholics a bad name.

If your not sorry for your sins then you can't be forgiven. It's about humbling yourself and trying to do better. We all have something that we need to work on. For some it's pride for others (me) it can be anger. the list goes on. It really helps to know that there is a person who can help through this, and every time we fail we can be forgiven. Hopefully, eventually the sin we need work on gets better and goes away. But like I said if your not sorry it doesn't work. There have been Priest's that refused absolution. The main case would be living together before marriage. Living in sin. If you go to confession and confess this without correcting the situation the priest can refuse absolution. You have shown your not sorry. You will continue to sin.

Hmm, I don't know. Maybe the comment would sit better with me if it were phrased: "I might as well be one of those Catholics who do whatever they want and then go to confession." There are some Catholics like that, I'm sure, but I dare say MOST are not and most understand the true purpose behind going to confession.
