Exaggerating in confession


I know that concealing a sin makes the confession invalid, what about exaggerating the number or stating doubtful sins as certain to be on the “safe side”?


Speak with a trusted confessor about scrupulosity. Don’t post on the internet about it.


That is also the wrong thing to do.


Check out this website fisheaters.com/scruples.html the original website was taken down and this is he one that I could find of it. Also keep track of how many times you do it.
