CHRISTIANITY 101: THE APOSTLES’ CREED – 11. That ‘F’ Word…Again!

 You’re familiar with the ‘F’ word, aren’t you?  No, not *that* ‘F’ word, silly!  You know the one I mean:  forgive.  Just as in the Lord’s Prayer, we ask God to “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us”, we affirm in the Apostles’ Creed that we believe in “the forgiveness of sins”.

Many people struggle with understanding the forgiveness of their sins, and seek to hold on to the remnant of what was forgiven.  But when God forgives a sin, he wipes it away completely!

In 1 John 1.5-2.2, John writes to his community (which had been plagued with Gnostics) about sin and forgiveness.  That’s what this message is based on.
