Online Confessions

This article talks about a growing trend for the confession of sins and secrets online. Literally millions of people are sharing their darkest secrets anonymously online. It's interesting to note that many of the websites created are hosted by churches. On one hand, confession of sin creates a sense of relief and is helpful for repentance. On the other hand, without accountability or community, online confession seems a little like an opiate for conscience-stricken people.

What do you think: is online confession helpful or harmful? Read the article, then share your thoughts!
