The will to detest sin, which is the result of deep remorse, is always just the inner matter of each individual. Read more:

Act of forgiveness of sins. Jesus Christ as redeemer.

13. and 14. November 1947. B.D. NR. 4166.

The act of forgiveness of sins can also only be seen as ceremony when the spiritual prerequisites for the forgiveness of transgressions are lacking. As soon as man feels sinful and carries his transgressions to God, as soon as he sincerely repents of the sins and asks God for forgiveness, the sin will also be forgiven him by God and for the sake of Jesus Christ the sin remitted, because the man Jesus Christ died for it on the cross that the transgressions of the entire mankind of past, presence and future was redeemed. And so the faith in the redemption work of Christ is therefore the first prerequisite for the forgiveness of sin and the will, to belong to those, who have been redeemed from their transgressions through the blood of Christ. Sincere repentance to God and therefore the recognition of having transgressed against God through the sin, of having violated his command of love, is a further precondition to justify the act of forgiveness of sins. Man can certainly announce regret with words, while his heart is not touched; he therefore does not suffer under the pressure of his sins and therefore also does not recognize how severely he has transgressed against God and his commands. Then the transgression can also not be taken from him; then he remains marked with his sin, (13.11.1947) until he is aware of his guilt and it presses him, so that he asks God for forgiveness. Man however has no reason to mention his sins to fellowmen. (14.11.1947) This has certainly the one thing to be said for it that he practises humility, if he openly confesses his weaknesses and mistakes, but this open confession to a man has nothing to do with the forgiveness of his sins. "Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained." This saying of Jesus you quote as reason, but you do not consider then that Jesus has spoken to his disciples, to those who had reached a spiritual maturity through their way of life, which made them clairvoyant and clairaudient. Jesus further spoke of those sins which consequences were bodily visible and cause that the sinners sought help from the disciples, whom they recognized as men of God, i.e. averting of their sufferings. The ceremonial act of general forgiveness of sins after the confession of the sins to a man originated out of this, but which again is just to be seen as a reshaping of the teaching of Christ, as a misleading insofar as men mostly believe (make) the forgiveness of their sins dependent on the confessing the same, but this confession becomes on many occasions a formal matter, while the deep inner remorse, the confessing of the guilt against God and detesting of the sin and serious wish of a reform only touches the heart of man in a weak hint , but the forgiveness of the sins only depends on this alone. This inner confession of guilt must take place to God. No mediator is necessary for this and consequently the auricular confession is again just a command added to the teaching of Christ by men, but which finds extremely strong observance, stands however in contradiction to the will of God, who wants to have every external appearance replaced by true inner devotion to God, through complete spiritual experience and giving full expression to his commands. Because every external appearance is a great danger for man that they observe themselves too little, only make humanly added demands their business and as a result become superficial and lukewarm in their soul work. Because the spiritual fall of men proves that the will to detest sin, which is the result of deep remorse, does not exist or has become action, what would absolutely be the case when the act of the forgiveness of sin would not have been brought into such a form, but would always just be the inner matter of each individual. Then man would educate himself to an improved way of life, if he would just be of good will. But so also those being willing become lukewarm and indifferent through wrong instructions and portrayal of the forgiveness of sin, which is not so wanted from God, as it is made out to be to men. Before God only true inwardness has value, and every outer form does not find his pleasure and therefore nit his approval. Amen. B.D. NR. 4166.
