Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. I've migrated this question to C.SE where it is a better fit.

comment Are our sins of the future forgiven? John 20:23
I've also reworded the question to focus it exclusively on this text and not on those things to which it applies, and also to keep it from searching for other texts (questions must be focused on a specified text). That way you can now get answers to the language question here and the theological question on C.SE. For more information on why we do this, check out Why can't I ask my 'big question'?

comment Are our sins of the future forgiven? John 20:23
This question boils down to what tense the verb was in in this verse, which is a relatively simple linguistic question and a simple yes or no won't really help you with your original question, which is focused on application. I've gone ahead and transferred this to C.SE for you where you will receive a better answer to what you are looking for.

We don't do 'Bible study' - we study the Bible. That means we stop short of application when answering questions about the Bible (which means we don't fully exegete the text in the religious sense of the practice). Questions should be focused solely on the text and not primarily on those things to which the text applies.

And it turns out you've asked this before as well. Don't ask duplicate questions. If you don't like the current answers on your existing question, offer a bounty and clarify what you're looking for.

@JimThio you have the beginning of an answer in here. If you want to make a point, give an answer. If you want to ask a question, do so and say no more in the body of the question.

@user2479 keep in mind that this is not a Christian (nor Jewish) site. Whether the book is used by what you deem to be a 'cult' or not has no bearing on whether or not it is on topic here (it is off topic, but not for that reason).

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. We study the Bible. While we have only loosely defined what texts fall into that category, I'm confident that texts written in the 20th century don't. If you have a question about a specific passage in Revelation, you are free to ask it without imposing ideas from later texts onto it.
