Read Ephesians 4:25 - 5:2
This statement of the Christian faith "I believe in the forgiveness of sins" comes after confessing the holy catholic church and the communion of saints, WHY? Because it is a matter of faith chiefly commanded to be exercised with "one another." So many times we are commanded to forgive one another, with the Father's forgiving mercy in Christ to be our patter; even the Lord's Prayer teaches us this. This sermon deals with fallicies concerning the forgiveness of sins, what we are asking God to do in forgiving us, and the chief condition of forgiving one another.
