CAN JESUS FORGIVE THE SINS OF HUMAN BEING?
In Indonesia, where the Moslem populations are almost 80 % of all Indonesian populations, we get always the questions from the Moslem peoples "Can Jesus forgive the sins of human being?".
If we do not know about our Lord Jesus, maybe we can not answer that question correctly, because most of Christians just believe that Jesus can forgive the Sins of human being, or maybe we just become a Christians becaused our father or mother are Christians and we just a Christians followers only.
Firstly let us talk about the real number between one to nine, we can ask to the people "Why two plus two is equal to two times two and the result also the same like two to the 2nd power, and it is not for the other real number between one to nine?
Ordinary persons just believe that case, but if we study deeply (just like if we attend the Bible groups), we can understand, that the number two is the only even number and primary number, and it is not like that for the other number, just only the number two. Jesus is not just a Son of Man, HE is the begotten Son of God so that HE has a special power on the earth.
The knowledge about Jesus is not the same between Moslems and Christians, Moslem peoples know Jesus as a normal human being, and Christians know that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, if we do not know that, than we will never know the speciality and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In Mark 2:9 Jesus has asked to the unbeliever "Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, "Your sins are forgiven you" or to say "Arise, take up your bed and walk?", sure as a human being, it is easier to say "Your sins are fogiven you" than to say "Arise, take up your bed and walk" to the paralytic, but in this opportunity, Jesus show HIS speciallity and authority, that HE is not a normal human being. Let us read at the Bible, Mark 2:10 - 12 as follows "But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins" He said to the paralytic, "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house" Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"
Have you ever seen like that before? That is the questions, that the knowledge about Jesus between Christians and Moslems is quite different. Believe in Jesus, so you will be saved, because just only Jesus in the world has proclaimed "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through ME" (John 14:6), we should just believe in HIM, because we have only a limited knowledge, as you know till this date we do not know how many planets in the firmament even we have the knowledge to count it, to make satellites, to send robots to Mars Planet etc. but we still can not know about the numbers of planets, and just like that when Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven you" and some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, "Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?" But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, "Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? "Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven you' or to say, 'Arise, take up your bed and walk?' "But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins" He said to the paralytic, "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house" Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!" (Mark 2 : 5 - 12)
