What is Christianity?
Our Sins Can Be Forgiven & Forgotten
The term Christian (Christianity) applies to those who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour, being born again into a spiritual rebirth because all their sins are forgiven, and forgotten by God.
So what is a sin and why do we need our sins forgiven?
In simple terms, sin is not living how God first intended us to live.
'If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.' – 1 John 1:9.
Confessing and repenting of our sins (wanting to do right from now on) brings us back in line with God, seeing sin as He sees it, and by doing so God forgives us of our sins. Forgiveness of our sins cleanses us so that we become free from all guilt of our sins.
Acts 10:43 'All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.’
God welcomes all individuals seeking His forgiveness, and every soul seeking to welcome Jesus into their heart as their personal Saviour.
