Who is able to forgive sins?

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

There is salvation for mankind because of the work of the Lord Jesus at Calvary’s cross. In this preaching you will hear of the account of a paralytic man who was carried by four men to see Jesus. There were many crowds but after uncovering the roof this paralytic man was brought near to Jesus where He was forgiven of his sins and healed completely.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

Mark 2:1-12And he entered again into Capernaum after [several] days, and it was reported that he was at [the] house;and straightway many were gathered together, so that there was no longer any room, not even at the door; and he spoke the word to them.And there come to him [men] bringing a paralytic, borne by four;

and, not being able to get near to him on account of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was, and having dug [it] up they let down the couch on which the paralytic lay.But Jesus, seeing their faith, says to the paralytic, Child, thy sins are forgiven [thee].But certain of the scribes were there sitting, and reasoning in their hearts,

Why does this [man] thus speak? he blasphemes. Who is able to forgive sins except God alone?And straightway Jesus, knowing in his spirit that they are reasoning thus within themselves, said to them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, [Thy] sins are forgiven [thee]; or to say, Arise, and take up thy couch and walk?

10 But that ye may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, he says to the paralytic,11 To thee I say, Arise, take up thy couch and go to thine house.12 And he rose up straightway, and, having taken up his couch, went out before [them] all, so that all were amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it thus.”

1 Peter 2:24 “24 who himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, in order that, being dead to sins, we may live to righteousness: by whose stripes ye have been healed.”

1 John 1:7-9 “7 the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us [our] sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
