When converting to Orthodoxy having been baptized Protestant, does one have to attend confession to confess all previously committed sins?

Second opinions are for diagnosis not treatment. In our day of board certifications and medical oversight, treatments are factually standardized any significant deviation would be outside the norm. Every specialty actually has a rather small basket of interventions from which to draw. If you’re septic you’re getting fluids and antibiotics— the type of antibiotic will vary with bacterium but it’s not going to be antivirals.

Young priests should just pray and administer the sacraments. They’d do less harm. In my experience my first priest wanting to gleefully dig around in my head and witness continuous tears messed me up royally. Yet, I’m certain he believed he was helping. The title bears a lot of authority — someone should apply some standardized oversight/training.
