Freedom from Sins

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the freedom from [aphesis] sins, according to the riches of His grace? (Ephesians 1:7, BSV).

In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the freedom from [aphesis] sins (Colossians 1:14, BSV).

The Greek word (aphesis) often translated “forgiveness” is a compound word, “from-letting” (Concordant Keyword Concordance), meaning “freedom” (Strong’s G859).

Ultimate freedom from sin is far more than the traditional “forgiveness” or “pardon” of sins. “Forgiveness” and “pardon” are rooted in guilt. The followers of religion seek to obtain forgiveness through some means – concerted effort, confessions, prayers, penance, resolutions, etc.

What Paul taught went well beyond “forgiveness.” The revelation given to him involved “justification,” which, instead of being rooted in guilt, is rooted in righteousness.
