The forgiveness of sins


Today we’re going to jump ahead and think about one of the last parts of the Apostles’ Creed – the Forgiveness of Sins.

Sin is rebellion

We sin when we think or say or do anything wrong.  All these wrong things help the Devil to build up his kingdom in this world, and when we sin we are really fighting against God just as the Devil does.

In time of war one of the worst things anyone can do is to be a traitor, that is, to work with the enemy and fight against one’s Queen and country.  How much worse it is when the enemy is the Devil and we, who are soldiers of Christ, become traitors to God.  Rebellion against the Queen is called treason.  Sin is treason against God.
