“Confessed Unto Him Their Sins”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
By this ye may know if a man repenteth of his sins-behold, he will confess them and forsake them“ (D&C 58:43). Confession of sin involves two dimensions: disclosure of the deed(s), and covenant and commitment to Christ through the appointed priesthood leader (see Brent L. Top, Though Your Sins Be As Scarlet, chapter 4).”
