Question
Specifically I am inquiring about John 20 verse 23.These are the words of Christ.
Certainly,Christ did not give the disciples authority to forgive sins?

Answer
Hi Ron,


As Christ was leaving, He did indeed pronounce the same power on them as God gave to Christ Himself. As they "forgave", or healed others, they did so in the Holy Name of Christ...not of their own power.

Hope this helps!


God bless!!

Expertise

I can answer any questions about SDA theology.

Experience

I have studied deeply the doctines of the Seventh-Day Adventist faith, testing each one against the Bible. I wish to share these truths with others, that all may be brought into the fullness of light that God has given to His church. Over the past 8 years of my life I have proven over and over again that the Seventh-Day Adventist truth, remains Gods truth.

Organizations

Education/Credentials
None that apply directly to theology.
