Rapid societal change driven by the technological advancement in our time continues to exert profound influence on human values at an accelerated pace and on a global scale. Although many benefits to human life are included in these advancements, the rapid changes are also shadowed by troubling trends of increasing permissiveness. For example, the world, as exemplified even by its educational institutions and governments, openly encourages the attitude that virtually anything and everything should be deemed acceptable. Unfortunately, believers can also be deceived by misinformation, propaganda, and lies from the devil and the world, as Apostle Paul warned and exhorted: “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them” (2 Tim. 3:13,14).
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? In biblical times and for centuries in many cultures, it was common for sons to learn the same work as their father and continue in that occupation for their lifetime. Jesus likewise continued in the work of the Heavenly Father in His public ministry. This text reminds us of His main purpose—to heal sin-sick people and to save those who were dead in their sins.
Martin Luther writes about three types of confession. Confession, in which acknowledgment of sins is directed to God, is confession of faith or confession of the heart. Private confession happens in the presence of a trusted confessor father or mother. In the confession of love a transgression is acknowledged to the person against whom one has transgressed.
