Forgiving yourself? Is a Myth. The reason this is a Myth is because it is not needed. Before you cut me off give me a moment to explain. Mark 2:7b “who can forgive sins but God only?” this was spoken by Pharisees. Mark 2:10 “But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)” this was spoken from the lips of our Savior. The pharisees were right “only God” could forgive sins and Jesus was and is God. Jesus said that He had power to forgive sins. So if God is the only one that can forgive sins then you and I do not have the “power” to forgive ourselves we just accept Gods Word on the fact that we have been forgiven. 1 John 1:9b “he is faithful and just to forgive us” If you have been forgiving just praise Him for the Fact Of Forgiveness.
