Two years ago, my friend practiced oral sex, but didn't confess it. What is the church's view on that? What will happen to my friend if he does not confess his sin?

Reassure your friend that the church will not refuse a true repentant who comes willingly and confesses his sin. Only God knows the heart of everyone and when one offers true repentance God blots out his sins. St. Peter says, "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19). Encourage your friend to go to his father of confession, confess his sins, ask for his guidance and accept his recommendations joyfully.
