There was a priest in the Philippines who carried the burden of a secret sin he had committed many years before. He had repented but still had no sense of God’s forgiveness.
In his church was a woman who claimed to have visions in which she spoke with Christ and he with her. The priest however was sceptical. To test her he said, “The next time you speak with Christ, I want you to ask him what sin your priest committed while he was in bible college.” The woman agreed.
A few days later the priest asked, “Well, did Christ visit you in your dreams?”
“Yes he did”, she replied.
“And did you ask him what sin I committed in bible college?”
“Well what did he say?”
“He said, ‘I don’t remember.’”
