Tolerance and apathy...


Yup.  Been saying this for a long time.  All that remains is to see how it plays out.  What will be left after the fuck-fuck games are over?

Did Jesus give Peter and the apostles the authority to forgive individuals of their sins before and after they became Christians? Do contemporary pastors and priests have the authority to forgive Christians of their sins? The answer is no, no, and no.


Mark 2:1-7....... "Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone.(NASB)

Jesus was God on earth, He had the authority to forgive sins. The apostles were not God on earth. Contemporary pastors and priest are not God on earth. For anyone other than God to claim they have the authority to forgive sin is blasphemous.

Isaiah 43:15-25 "I am the Lord, your Holy One.....25 "I even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.(NASB)

No preachers, pastors, apostles, nor priests can wipe out transgressions. Only God forgives sin.

Micah 7:18 Who is a God like You who pardons iniquity...(NASB)

The apostle Peter nor any apostle had the power to pardon sins. There is not an example in the New Testament Scriptures where any apostle said to an individual nor a group of people I forgive you of your sins.

Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 16:9) Jesus not give Peter and the apostles the authority to grant forgiveness to men. Only God forgives sin.

Peter used the keys on the Day of Pentecost. The keys were faith, repentance, and immersions in water. (Acts 2:22-41)
Peter did not say I or we the apostles forgive you of your sins against God, nor did he say that to anyone Christians subsequently. [Terms of pardon:FAITH John 3:16, REPENTANCE Acts 3:19, CONFESSION Romans 10:9, IMMERSION IN WATER Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16]

There is no Scriptures that teaches that apostles, preachers, pastors, priests, nor the church as the power of absolution. Only God forgives sin.

1 John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;(NASB)

The apostle John did not tell those in the body of Christ to ask for absolution for theirs sins by asking the church, the priest nor the pastor to grant them forgiveness from their sins against God.


We know that, John 20:23, does not mean the apostles, priests, pastors, nor the church has the authority to forgive men of their sins against God.

Teaching the gospel plan of salvation to men does not mean the teacher has the authority to forgive sin.

Praying for fellow church members does not mean that the one who prays has the authority to forgive sins.

Look what has happened to Europe. Yep - refugees let in without any regard for the citizens of those respective countries who now see their cities and culture being taken over by these animals. The muslim plan for world domination is working better than ever. The ungrateful want everything - yet, they cry about how they were just "happy to be away from the war". Merkel won't get re-elected as a result. It's like Mexico. Why does the US insist on taking in the illegals, when we should be demanding Mexico square away its own house so people don't want to leave. This is a universal moral problem - we reward bad behavior: allowing quitters to solve their problems by running away from them, hiding in someone elses area, instead of having the courage to try and improve things in their homeland. Instead, we the Citizens, are EXPECTED to bend to their needs and demands. Is that back-assward liberal logic, or what???

That couple that killed Chance Walsh - a 9 week old defenseless baby - and thought nothing of it. After beating him to death, they laid him in his crib to decompose. After two days, moved him to a closet because the smell was unbearble. Eventually, they buried him in a shallow grave. Indifferent to the whole issue when caught. This is what our failing society is breeding; couples who throw their kids out of windows or drown them in cars. Closing mental institutions and making death row a joke - another indicator. I'm not a religious person - but we, as a culture and a society, started our down hill slide when God / Tem Commandments were ordered out of the schools and public offices. Our nation began its demise when we stopped saying the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag". Pax Americania is in its downfall. It was a nice ride while it lasted. I will miss it so. My apologies to those who fought and died for a dream, only to have an ungrateful population throw it away.
