For me, I’m kind of open to anything now. In 2018 if you tried to tell me that The Nazis and The Vatican are in cahoots and built a giant bunker in Antartica to cover up that the earth is flat I’d be like “bro, maybe just stick to 911” but now? After seeing almost every government on the planet synchronise and oppress us as a team? There’s nothing too far fetched.

How about y’all?

Ok, but what if one of your brother or sisters doesn’t forgive you? Because it says

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

I believe this verse is talking about not individual sins but "the sins" ie "all sins" ie salvation.

So if a diciple says, based on the Holy Spirit, "your sins are forgiven you" then all your sins are forgiven - not because the diciple said it but because the Holy Spirit completed the work and the diciple can see that.

Read Acts 8:9-24. The apostles were very careful in what they did and needed to see genuineness. The Apostle Peter told the man (Simon) to pray to God for forgiveness. Peter didn't forgive him, but God could.
