Confession was used in Jewish practices and the Church as a way to heal and be restored back to God. The fruit of God's Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self control. There is no law against these qualities. These qualities bring more enjoyment to life and living and can set you free from the things that hinder and hurt you. I suppose the quality we all could use regarding eating is self control, eh?
