There is no "formula for absolution."

There is only a repentant sinner with a sorrowful heart who seeks to sin no more against the Triune God.

"And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee." -- Matthew 9:2

Are you trying to speak about the Catholic Church? What sort of degree in Catholic theology do you have?

Most interesting.

Exactly — God forgives the sins. God makes all things new. The difference is that Catholics know it — and they also know that God forgets the sins once they are confessed and repented for.

Protestants don’t have that reassurance!
