    The keys to the kingdom of heaven were given to God's children to loose and bind sins. When someone is on the wayside burdened with a load of sins, the conscience feeling hells burning flames, a child of God stops to heal with the words of the forgiveness of sins. That power has been given to the congregation which Jesus established behind locked doors.
