You are so blinded.<quoted text>
Sins aren't forgiven unless true repentence( one must work in harmony with their prayers by stopping doing a sin once one knows it is a sin.) is done-- If ones sin was wiped clean by what you stated--no one would have to die, but all die--the wages of sin = death---- death pays ones wages of sin. Jesus' death opened the door for one to attain eternal life in Gods kingdom) one must enter through the narrow gate. FEW do Jesus taught.
Col 2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave all our sins, having cancelled he written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
Repent then and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Acts 22:16 ...be baptized and WASH AWAY YOUR SINS.
Do you not understand that Jesus wipes away our sins when we believe, accept him, ask forgiveness and repent. Sins are NOT washed away by the blood if we do not repent even if we ask forgiveness. One must continue on the narrow path with Christ in order to live a righteous life. We are human. We have a sinful nature. Establishing the relationship with the Father through the Son is what helps us daily to stay away from a sinful life. It's not easy. No one is immune to temptation even after we first are saved. It is a daily walk with Christ which keeps us on this narrow path.
Why does it tell us that our sins are washed away after we do these things and become baptized? We are still alive and still capable of sinning. It is about the love and faith and trust in Christ in the Father that they will guide us daily away from sin and into righteousness.
We have to continue to suffer a human existence on this earth and continue to resist temptation to sin to win the 'prize' of everlasting life with Christ and the Father. This is the reward at the end of our human and faithful journey and often rough walk with Christ. He never promised it would be easy, but He did promise a great reward in the end. Everlasting life is the reward for the race we are in daily with Satan. If we continue to deny sin we receive the reward at the end. This is scriptural.
We are human and because of this, we have mortal bodies which means our bodies will eventually die in a relatively short time until Christ returns. We can't live for 1000 years. So death is inevitable, but so is life in heaven if we live a repentant and righteous life.
