Confession Sometimes Required
By: Rick Boxx

For decades, the Securities Exchange Commission allowed financial institutions that committed wrongdoing to pay a fine and neither “admit or deny wrongdoing.” According to the Wall Street Journal, the new SEC chairman, Mary Jo White, will “begin requiring admissions of wrongdoing in some cases in the future.”

I applaud the SEC for holding people accountable for their actions.

In Numbers 5:6 God said, “‘When a man or woman commits any of the sins of mankind, acting unfaithfully against the LORD, and that person is guilty, then he shall confess his sins which he has committed, and he shall make restitution in full for his wrong and add to it one-fifth of it...”

If we want to stop corruption, and bring healing, we need to require confession to victims, then restitution.
