ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS
Another part of Scientologys ethics system is what is known as Confessionals. Man has long postulated a means by which he could put himself on the right path. As long ago as 500 B.C., religions recognized that confession frees a person spiritually from the burden of sin. In Scientology, it has been found that a Confessional (a type of auditing) assists the person who has transgressed against his own and his groups moral code to unburden himself and again feel good about himself and be a contributing member of the group.
As L. Ron Hubbard has written: No man who is not himself honest can be free he is his own trap. When his own deeds cannot be disclosed, then he is a prisoner; he must withhold himself from his fellows and is a slave to his own conscience.
These are just two of the tools from the wealth of ethics technology that exists in Scientology. Complete information on this subject is contained in Introduction to Scientology Ethics by L. Ron Hubbard.
