Identity - False Guilt
True guilt is an emotional response as a result of any wrong attitude or action. Here again, we're trying to define these terms for you.
So you can consider is the guilt that I'm experiencing true or false? And so true guilt refers to the fact of you are at fault. It's not that I'm a child of God and I haven't done anything wrong. It is true guilt is us recognizing I have done something wrong, I have said something wrong, I am actually guilty of this offense, that false guilt is self blame, even though no wrong has been committed by self or self blame that continues after confessing and repenting of a committed sin which is no longer part of a person's life.
So feeling guilty today of something that you confessed and change that happened years ago, that guilt is is building in you and can make us feel continue to feel ashamed. false guilt is based on self condemning feelings of not having lived up to your own expectations or the expectations of someone else. Expectations not meeting expectations cannot create true guilt.
