Hi guys. I’m a bit worried about something.
See, there’s a sinful addiction I’ve been dealing with for a long time behind my parents’ back, and I’ve recently got it into my head that I’m going to have to tell them about it. The thought of this is absolutely terrifying. I know for a fact it would ruin my relationship with both my parents and it would do no good. They would probably mever forgive me. I’ve stopped doing it, I’ve confessed it and done penance, so I know it’s off my soul. I can’t tell if this is me being reluctant to follow God’s will, or the devil inspiring fear and anxiety in me by twisting Bible verses and not letting me stop thinking about this. What do you guys think? Is it a sin to keep this secret? What’s the official teaching?
