When did the Apostle Paul have his sins forgiven? In Acts 9 Jesus appeared to Paul and said you will be told what you must do. Paul was so scared he didn’t eat, he didn’t drink, he prayed for three days. Now, what would you be praying for if you’d been killing Christians? I would pray lord please forgive me! Yet after praying for three days, he wasn’t saved yet. He was told, why are you waiting arise and be baptized and wash away your sins calling on the name of the Lord. And now I have the same question for you, why are you waiting?
