Romans 8:34 (NIV)

You need to realize who it is who was slaughtered for you 2,000 years ago… Jesus, the highest Majesty, shed His blood so that, if you truly believe that He has irrevocably reconciled you to God with His sacrifice, you are sanctified once and for all. You are no longer a sinner who still has to ask for forgiveness of his or her sins, because for 2,000 years this has been compensated by the sacrifice of Jesus. Instead, you are a saint who unfortunately, from time to time, still sins:

“And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” (Hebrews 10:10; NIV)

Religious people condemn themselves

God does not accuse you anymore. But that doesn’t matter to all the religious people. Instead of enjoying their glorious identity purchased by Jesus, in the peace and blessing of God, they condemn themselves and beg for forgiveness of their sins.

Talking to God about your sins is different than confessing sins for God to forgive you

I don’t want to know how God and Jesus might feel in the face of such selfish behavior of minimizing what Jesus accomplished. Because biblical truth is this:

“Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Romans 8:33-34; NIV)

Say (!) this: Jesus has forgiven all my sins. Thank You, my God. Please help me to sin less and less (or, of course, in your words).
