Yes Christ can forgive sin in Heaven and Earth !!!!
My Bible shows Christ taught that God forgives sin!!! He said:

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

And: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

What does yours say????

ssssoooo you missed the part in the following verses where Jesus qualified what He was saying; "the flesh profits nothing; my WORDS are SPIRIT and they are life"

following your train of thought, ROME/CATHOLICS kinda own salvation cuz they're the only ones qualified to do the hocus pocus necessary for 'transubstantiation'.

DON'T YOU FIND THIS IDEA THE LEAST BIT CONVENIENT FOR ROME, TYRANNICAL AND ODD???

<quoted text>
Those who hold baptism to be required for salvation point to “born of water” as evidence. As one person has put it,“Jesus describes it and tells him plainly how—by being born of water and the Spirit. This is a perfect description of baptism! Jesus could not have given a more detailed and accurate explanation of baptism.” However, had Jesus actually wanted to say that one must be baptized to be saved, He clearly could have simply stated,“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is baptized and born of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Further, if Jesus had made such a statement, He would have contradicted numerous other Bible passages that make it clear that salvation is by faith (John 3:16; John 3:36; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).
We should also not lose sight of the fact that when Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus, the ordinance of Christian baptism was not yet in effect. This important inconsistency in interpreting Scripture is seen when one asks those who believe baptism is required for salvation why the thief on the cross did not need to be baptized to be saved. A common reply to that question is:“The thief on the cross was still under the Old Covenant and therefore not subject to this baptism. He was saved just like anyone else under the Old Covenant.” So, in essence, the same people who say the thief did not need to be baptized because he was “under the Old Covenant” will use John 3:5 as “proof” that baptism is necessary for salvation. They insist that Jesus is telling Nicodemus that he must be baptized to be saved, even though he too was under the Old Covenant. If the thief on the cross was saved without being baptized (because he was under the Old Covenant), why would Jesus tell Nicodemus (who was also under the Old Covenant) that he needed to be baptized?
If “being born of water and the Spirit” is not referring to baptism, then what does it mean? Traditionally, there have been two interpretations of this phrase. The first is that being “born of water” is being used by Jesus to refer to natural birth (with water referring to the amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby in the womb) and that being born of the “Spirit” indicates spiritual birth. While that is certainly a possible interpretation of the term “born of water” and would seem to fit the context of Nicodemus’ question about how a man could be born “when he is old,” it is not the best interpretation given the context of this passage. After all, Jesus was not talking about the difference between natural birth and spiritual birth. What He was doing was explaining to Nicodemus his need to be “born from above” or “born again.”
cont
Jesus had the power to save in person. Someone posted several verses that highlighted this point within the past day.

Also, no one could say for certain that the thief had never been baptized. Everyone always assumes he had never been.

We are under the rules established after Jesus' resurrection when the church began at Pentecost. And, Paul informs that there is one baptism. The Eunuch saw much water and after confessing he believed with all his heart that Jesus was the son of God he was baptized (Acts 8:34-39).

What is the one baptism? Why?

What is Christian baptism?
Christian baptism is a voluntary ceremony whereby a person publically declares he or she has come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Christian baptism is performed by dipping the believer under water and lifting him or her up again, symbolically representing the believer's acceptance of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection for their sins. Paul explained this in Romans 6:3-4: "Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." Baptism doesn't save; it isn't required for salvation. Although some denominations require a believer to be baptized before they can participate in church ministries or government, it is not biblically required.
But, Christian baptism is an act of obedience. As Jesus was baptized in obedience (Matthew 3:15), so we should be as well. It is also part of the great commission—"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…" (Matthew 28:19). Publically confessing one's faith, whether by word (Romans 10:9-10) or action (Acts 2:38), while not required for salvation, is a way of acknowledging the Father and a sign of a saving faith (Matthew 10:32-33).
The biblical requirements for baptism are simple: have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, and understand what baptism means. The Bible adds no requirements for age, the length of time someone has been a believer (Acts 8:34-38), or informational classes—as long as the person understands what baptism means. Baptism can be performed in a church's baptismal, a swimming pool, or the ocean. And the participants can wear robes, waders, jeans, or swimsuits. The only requirements are that the person being baptized is a Christian and is willing to obey God by publically declaring their relationship with Him.

And yet there is Acts 2:38 that explains it and the reason for it perfectly.

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.
I was raised a Catholic, but left it after I left Vietnam. Today I believe more in God and I forgot what the Holy Trinity was all about. I don't pay a middle man I go straight to God.

We can have forgiveness because of the Blood of Christ and His sacrifice at the Cross. We acknowledge we are sinners, repent, and receive Christ by faith.
If we do not repent, if we do not put our faith in Christ, we are condemned and it ain't got nothing to do with baptism.

Like my post to hojo, since you interjected and seem to want to stick up for him, I'm not sure on how they have hurt you or him.

Please explain.

Well, that is if you have the ability to do so.

Though I find him to be uninformed, as much as you are, there is no hate involved.

In fact, I'm trying to help you both overcome your dishonesty towards yourself and others. Now that you've thrown in your dislike for me, I can assist you to overcome that as well.

What say you? Live in enlightenment or live in the darkness of the RCC and Christianity?

It is ultimately no one's choice, except your own.

Ok, Chuckie, read the words to this song and think about it:
My precious Savior suffered pain and agony
He bore it all (Freely bore it all)
That I might live (I with Him might live)----(SPIRITUALLY)
He broke the bonds of sin and set the captive free---(FREED US)
He bore it all that I might live (in His presence live)---(SPIRITUALLY LIVE---IN HIS PRESENCE---HEAVEN)
Chorus:
He bore it all (Jesus bore it all) that I might see His shining face
He bore it all (Freely bore it all)
That I might live (I with Him might live)
~~~I stood condemned to die but Jesus took my place~~~(WHY? STILL IN SINS)
He bore it all that I might live (in His presence live)
They placed a crown of thorns upon my Savior's head
He bore it all (Freely bore it all)
That I might live (I with Him might live)
My cruel man, with spear, his side was pierced and bled
He bore it all that I might live (in His presence live)
Repeat Chorus
Up Calvary's hill in shame the blessed Savior trod
He bore it all (Freely bore it all)
That I might live (I with Him might live)
Between two thieves they crucified the Son of God
He bore it all that I might live (in His presence live)
Repeat Chorus (x2)
1 Peter 2:24
24 “He himself bore our sins”[[[[[in his body]]]]] on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
in His body.....now....
We are baptized INTO His death, burial and resurrection....
WHY???
Did you even read my post, Chuckie???
