    Carmen are you saying, If we went to a priest, God will forgive our sins. Or, God will forgive us for going to a priest?

    To Carmen - You're on a KJV Bible site; not the Catholic Douay. They are 2 different Bibles - and only one is true; only one is from God.

    The bible tells us that the world will reject us if we follow Jesus. In this chapter we see the city rejecting him. Stay close to Jesus knowing what you face in this world he has already overcome. If you stay close to Jesus you too will overcome everything you go through.
