Having a Ta'avah doesn't make you a Rasha, that's a Beinoni :P

Do we need a priest?

Naw, Chaim, the idea was to do it publicly so all could learn. Sort of like prison where they teach each other to be better criminals. (I think I have been to a farbrengen or two like that.)  :P

When I saw the word "confessional" RC came to mind. I am pretty sure they do it in private but I could be wrong.

Yes, but the purpose of the thread was not absolution. It's exhibitionism.

Well, the taaveh itself is not a chet
It's not a virtue either. To be honest, it's an undesirable middah.

Three steps to absolution (Sacrament of Penance)?
there is one major component of tshuva which is not part of Christian sacrament iinm, and that is kabalah al ha'asid, that one must accept upon himself not to do the sin again. This makes three parts of Jewish repentance since there is no priest involved.

I'm still waiting for the verdict from our resident poskim here, as a shulchan aruch abiding Jew, may I go to an AGT show? does it depend on whether I consider it fun? how about TiVo'ing it, youtube?

What happens if the same sin is committed again?

If you would go past the first few chapters you would see why that isn't reason to be depressed, but I guess that's a whole other discussion best kept to Freddy's thread...

Of course that could be depressing, I just have a difficult time comprehending how we can all be considered a Rasha when what defines us as a Rasha is impossible (at least in our generation) to avoid.

I don't understand this stuff, isn't our madreiga only relevant to our own potential. Who cares how we compare to others?
