When you became a Christian, did you begin to confess your sin? What about your past sins? Did you confess the sins of your childhood? Did you confess the sins you committed as a baby? Well, that’s exactly what St Augustine did, and not only secretly to God, but he wrote a whole 96,000 word, 13 book volume, confessing to the world his wrongs, from infancy to manhood.
In his writing, Augustine acknowledges that it was God Who had been working in his life, sovereignty predestinating his circumstances, and leading his steps.
Augustine contemplates God throughout his book, and states some interesting points and opinions as helpful pointers to the answers.
The Confessions is a wonderful, captivating volume, and I highly recommend anyone over 13 years of age, (children and adults alike), to open, and contemplate Augustine’s writing.
