The remission of sins
This important concept is also known
as the forgiveness of sins. Sins are forgiven when we become cleansed
of all sins once and for all through the gospel of the water and
the Spirit. The faith in the gospel of the water and the Spirit
is to believe in a series of truths: Jesus Christ's divinity, the
incarnation of the Son of God, His baptism and crucifixion for the
salvation of us all, and His resurrection.
The redemption Jesus gave us can be
ours through the faith in His baptism and blood. As prophesied in
the Old Testament, Jesus Himself saved all people from sin. The
redemption in the Bible points to the washing away of sins through
faith in the baptism of Jesus and His blood. All sins were passed
onto Jesus, so there is no longer any sin in the hearts of humankind.
We can call ourselves the redeemed
and the righteous only after passing all our sins onto Jesus through
faith in His baptism.
