What Shall I Do To Be Saved?

By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil

Question 84. Did anyone confess to the apostles?

Yes. "And many who had believed had come (in Ephesus) confessing, and telling their deeds. Also many of those had practiced witchcraft brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up to the value of them and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver." (Acts 19:18)

Question 85. Did Jesus give the apostles the right to absolve sins?

Yes. "Peace to you. As the Father has sent me I also send you. And when He had said this, He breathed on them, ...Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive a man of his sins they shall be forgiven to him; and if you with hold forgiveness of a man's sins, they are kept." (John 20:21-23)

Does this sentences require an explanation? (Please read the last paragraph of Question 83)
