Apr 22 '21 at 11:29 comment added Mike Borden I threw it in there before I realized it was quoted in every single answer:)
Apr 22 '21 at 10:40 comment added Adam @user47952... People read the Lords prayer and think that gives us alone the authority to forgive sins. A sinner cannot forgive sins anymore than a sinner can make atonement for sins. You will find it is absolutely only God (Jehovah/Yahweh). Your text in Matthew is an incorrect interpretation,.the text in John is part of the commission Jesus gave. Only Jesus is our mediator...no human has the power to forgive sins of his own accord. Read Mark 2:7 you will clearly see that the Jews well knew only God can forgive sins. Also refer to Isaiah 43:25.

Apr 21 '21 at 21:43 comment added steveowen @Adam "Only God can forgive sins, no man can do this" that is untrue. The bible presents a contrary view. Matt 9:8 John 20:22
Apr 21 '21 at 21:25 comment added Adam I dont think the reasons given below answer this question at all. God gave of himself for at least two reasons 1. Satan's charge that God is selfish could only be answered by our creator offering himself as atonement for the wages of sin (payment for the consequences of breaking his own laws). God had to demonstrate that His laws are just. 2. Only God can forgive sins (no man can do this)...so Jesus had to be God to form part of this process. Jesus talked about forgiving sins throughout His ministry...it was a central theme.

Apr 21 '21 at 11:16 comment added steveowen that doesn't make sense - would you expand/rewrite? Not a good thing to 'read b/w the lines' with.
Apr 21 '21 at 11:13 comment added pehkay There is no divine element then it is not effective or applicable today through time and space. The accomplishment must be through the eternal Spirit so that it is ever ready to be applied through spacetime and beyond

Apr 14 '21 at 5:51 comment added steveowen ah yes, I see your point
Apr 14 '21 at 5:50 comment added Austin Yes, however, there are other beings that are perfectly sinless (such as angels) so I don't think that the argument quite holds. The fact that there are fallen angels attests to their freedom to sin.
Apr 14 '21 at 5:48 comment added steveowen thx, however we are told he was without sin. So, 'only God can be perfectly sinless', isn't quite right.
Apr 14 '21 at 5:46 comment added Austin There really is nothing biblically that supports that Jesus had to be more than human in order for his sacrifice to be good enough, other than the argument that only God can be perfectly sinless. That said there are certainly angels who are perfectly sinless since they remain in God's presence so, I dunno.
