In our verses from
Luke 5:17-21 quoted below, we read that the Pharisees are asking questions amongst themselves.
I wonder how many Christians believe that their sins are forgiven. If you have accepted Christ as your personal Saviour, then you know. You know He forgave you while on the Cross.
Yet, in our doubts, there are those times we allow Satan’s demons the possession of our mind. We wonder, “Have my sins been forgiven?”
The Pharisees were correct in their question. Only God, He alone through His Son Jesus can forgive sins.
I have read that many “Christians” believe they are going to Heaven, and yet many of then do not believe the Bible as the Word of God. They, like the Pharisees, don’t believe that Jesus is God, nor do they want to believe anything other than they “in their morality” have saved themselves.
We are taught that Jesus is the manifestation of God the Father, the God of Abraham, the God of Jacob.
Jesus tells us in the Book of John very clearly who He is. Yet our problem isn’t, “Who can forgive sins?” It is who can accept that Jesus can forgive you and that He has already forgiven you, if you will accept Him. “Who Can?” Have you asked?
