Do men have the power and authority to grant forgiveness from sin? Some believe that Jesus granted the power of absolution to the church of Christ. God nor Jesus has given the church nor church leaders the power or authority to to forgive sins.


Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven you. (NKJV)

Jesus is God, He can forgive sins. Priests, preachers, pastors, deacons, elders, nor pew sitters are, God, they cannot forgive sins.

Mark 2:7 "Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?" (NKJV)

Only God forgives sins.

Acts 8:18-22...Simon.....22 "Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.(NKJV)

The apostle Peter did not say I forgive you Simon of your wickedness, he said pray God would forgive Simon. Peter did not have the authority nor the power to forgive Simon of his sin against God. Only God forgives sin.

Jeremiah 33:1-8 ...the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah.....8 I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.(NKJV)

No priest, preacher, pastor, deacon, elder, nor pew sitter can forgive the sins of those who sin against God. Only God can forgive sins.

No church nor church leader as the power of absolution. ONLY GOD FORGIVES SIN.

  1. Why Try so hard to complicate what God has said that HE has made so abundantly obvious so that ALL men are without excuse? And since the beginning?

    Firstly If I or anyone then has to take a person and SHOW such a doubtful person such a thing has been said, that same "Individual still has to "Believe" that it was in fact God (their creator) who said such a thing. SHOULDN'T that at least be able to "Frame" a specific need that remains unanswered in that persons mindset?

    Isn't there a much easier explanation that God has also made available to ALL mankind? Why is it so hard for some to grasp the concept as to why square pegs do NOT fit into round holes?

    You can ask that question until Christ returns, but unless you take the Hammer away from this type of person, they're going to keep hammering away.

    The reason no one can see themselves as the "Deliverer" is because this type of mindset has lost sight of what they're supposed to be 'Delivering" as if from God...

    The Doctor didn't have to also create/make the baby before he/she became qualified as the one who delivers the baby do they?

    No it's the Faithful deliver of the TRUTH that sets men free from the bondage of SIN.

    More often souls first want the physical evidence presented BEFORE they are willing to believe a matter, yet where does that then Leave Faith?

    Ask most anybody today where the essence (meaning) of the phrase "Don't kill the messenger" came from and they look at you like a calf staring at a "New Gate"!

    The type of "Faith" the said "Ministers" of today are in all practicality Pimping is "empty"! What does the words of God say is also the "Power of God"?

    And if it is NOT the Gospel Of God being preached today in its entirety then doesn't that also explain why so few are actually finding and keeping a tight "Life" dependent Grip not only on who God is but the "ALL" that God says He is and is willing to do specifically for the sake of what He says is also "Righteous" here in the earth as it is in heaven?

    Was Christ merely "Jesting" when He did ask IF He will FIND faith when he returns? As if such that also agrees with the Narrow Way (Gate) He forewarned (Prophesied) about?

    Wake up Oh're NOT just dreaming about this thing called life Eternal we're also so earnestly placing our hope in... Faith is what it is, but ALL that Faith is also how God alone defines the type of faith He's looking for...

    You can't even begin to respond much less take a stand against the type of foolish questions that will result because of "Unbelief" In God can you? Namely because it's still undecided in the minds of those making the inquiry as to "Whom" God has given the authority to speak on Gods behalf?

    and be asked of what the Apostle's of Christ were talking about when they wrote to us some 2k years later to "Find out what is the perfect and Perfect and pleasing "Will" of God

    Maybe those souls should all move to Missouri (the show me state)?
