He Forgave Sins

Mark 2:5 - When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."

Luke 5:24 - But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...." He said to the paralyzed man, "I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home."

While much of the resources in our world are spent on dealing with the effects of sin (i.e. war, illness, death, depression, crime, poverty, etc.) there is still no way for people to have their sins forgiven so that they might be cleansed from their guilt. At best, some religions try to teach their adherents what they can do to work hard at paying God back through such things as penance, good works or even reincarnation. However, all of these still lack any concept of forgiveness or ability to offer it. But, Jesus forgave sin because He was/is God and since all sin is ultimately committed against Him, He alone has the power to forgive the sins of humans.
