the idea of confessing your sins to each other and not forsaking the assembling of the saints is biblical. to punish a person through judgement when breaking a written or oral contract, or through punishment from confessed sins, is living under the law of death. however, how can we remain accountable by living in the spirit? perhaps these methods of accountability are fundamentally admirable. i would like to know the method christians use to keep on the right track, and if they sin, the result that gets them back on track. i am asking this sincerely, because i have trouble with this in my own walk.
