That doesn’t erase all of his sins of course. Sounds like he has a big pile of them too.

Not for us to decide if he does or not.

Remember the saying: ‘But for the grace of God there I go’.

He had his “Road to Damascus” moment in life. Pray for him. Pray for all others like him.

Nothing erases your sins. The truly repentant can give them to Jesus, though. Then, by the Grace of God, they are forgiven.

his sins cannot be erased by doing good, but they can be washed clean by the blood of the Lamb.

Seems to me he’s done a complete turn around, which is what repentance means. America needs to do the same, a complete turn around. 180*

When King Manasseh who sacrificed his firstborn by burning him alive to Molech repented, God forgave him. Lots of similar facts in the Bible.

I disagree. When this man repented and accepted Christ as his Savior, all of his sins were washed away and Christ and will remember them no more. He is forgiven. Forever. Will he ever sin again? Every day of his life. But that what prayer is for. To ask forgiveness everyday. Paul tells us to pray continuously. It is hard to sin when you are praying. Prayer brings you closer and closer to Christ.

If you ask him to describe where he came from and how he feels now. One word will describe it! Especially after the business he was in and that word is: CLEAN

No, but his faith in Christ does.

It's not a matter of erasing them, God forgives and separates them from us as far as the east is from the west. There's nothing too big for God to forgive and thank God it's not up to us to try to pay for them.
