    Do I have the power to forgive sin?

    Hello Dr. Birks. How are we to apply the below scriptures in the body of Christ or in general?

    John 20:23, Matt 16:19

    Thank You,

    Mt. 16:19 was in reference to Peter receiving the "keys" (only given to Peter here), so that he might ether allow (loose) or stop (bind) things that were happening on earth in accordance with what God was either stopping or allowing in heaven. The keys were to know God's will, essentially.... John 20:23 was given to the 10 apostles (Thomas was missing here), in order to affirm to people in Christ's name that (upon faith ad repentance) they were either forgiven of their sins or not. Simple as that.
