Where have you been? Where are you going? And why?
Whenever people proudly acknowledge that their problem is sin, you can be certain they have no idea what they are talking about. And when confession is easily made, followed by confident resolve to bear the fruit of repentance, you can conclude the same thing. Unless Christian teachers bear the marks of brokenness, their teaching will not highlight grace. More often, their study of Scripture will feed a harsh judgmentalism that enforces rules and delights to reprimand. Such teaching will entice few to follow Christ.
