Is the only sin to be repented of is the sin of murdering Jesus?


For your information: The only Way that has been perfected to get into heaven is by the faith to repent of the one sin of Jesus' murder for the forgiveness of ALL sins. This is the only way to obey the Acts 2:38 command.


I left the grammar of this note basically as given since I can't be absolutely sure I understood the intended statement.

Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God" (I Corinthians 6:9-11). However, the remedy for sins remains the same: "but you were washed ..."
