IHH Asks About Retaining Sins

IHH Asked me:  Without going into a line by line response, you could answer this:  What is your view of retaining sins?

Scott replies:   My view is exactly what John records in John 20:23, "Those sins" which THEY retain, are retained.  This goes along with "those sins" which THEY forgive, are forgiven.  This is NOT about forgiving your neighbor, this is about offenses against God, and God Himself giving a special group of men the authority to forgive and retain such sins.  "Those sins" which THEY do not forgive are not forgiven.  Therefore the ONLY WAY to have THOSE SINS forgiven (those which offend God) is through one whom He has so empowered.  In short, get thee to a confessional!

Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
