My husband had a Catechism lesson last night with Father. We were talking about Jesus giving the apostles the power to forgive sins.
Why don’t they get it? Jw’s claim that Christ is not God right? if that is the case, then how can an angel give the apostles the power to forgive sins? Jesus can and did give them the power to forgive sins because He is God.
Angels cannot forgive sins, nor can an angel resurrect the dead, heal the lame, cure the blind, so on. Christ can. ( they claim that God gave Him the power to do so ) They do agree however, that angels cannot forgive sins, or grant everlasting life, or judge anyone. So, if Jesus is truly Micheal the Archangel, how can He do any of this? Another point, one of you posters please look up the scripture in the NT where it states that Christ would under His own power be raised from the dead. Since they claim He is not God, how can He under His own power, be raised from the dead?
They don’t get it… Jesus is God. Why would God need to give Christ power to forgive sins and heal people and raise the dead? According to them, for God’s glory.
They are tough nuts to crack. I told them, take a look at the scriptures, Matt 4:10 Jude 9… they still don’t get it. sighhhhhhh… let’s have some of you posters show the scriptures in Acts where Christ gave the apostles the power to forgive sins, and please show the scripture where He says what you bind on earth, you bind in heaven, and what you loose on earth, you loose in heaven. show us the scripture please.
I will continue to pray that at least one of them finally gets it!
CHRIST IS GOD.
