The Definition Of Salvation

The definition of salvation is “forgiveness of sins”, not “confession of sins”, Luke 1:77 & 24:47 confirms that truth. The Apostles never said, “confess your sins and you will receive forgiveness of your sins”, they said, “repent, turn back to God that your sins may be forgiven”.

It is not the act of confession that leads a person to salvation, it is the act of repentance, a person repents when he or she believes Yeshua is the Messiah and stops practicing sin.

Luke 1:77 – To bring {and} give the knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness {and} remission of their sins.

Luke 24:46 – and he [the Messiah] said to them, “Thus it is written, that the the Messiah would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,

Luke 24:47 – and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

Acts 3:19 – So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around {and} return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord.

The Bible does not support the teaching that says, “a person must confess their sins to be born of the Spirit.”

1 John 5:1 Whosoever believes that Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 John 3:9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed the Holy Spirit] abides in him or her; and he or she cannot sin, because he or she is born of God.
