Also I would like to add, it's impossible or at least nearly impossible to confess ALL your sins to the priest, you're bound to forget some, or maybe you commit a sin without even knowing...
and it is because of this fact that we pray for the dead (according to what I heard from HG Bishop Roufael) for God to forgive them those sins
so to say that all sins not confessed to a priest are not forgiven, even in the teachings of our own church should not be taken too literallyyes, we should strive to confess all, but when we don't for the mentioned reasons, it doens't mean we'll be going to hell
