Can You Forgive Sins?


picture-171John 20:23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.

Can we forgive sins? The King James calls it remitting which means to release, to acquit, to surrender.  God forgives sins, but you must also.  You are releasing them from the sins against you.  Don’t hold it in your heart.
