There is no sin that cannot be forgiven, stressed the schismatic Filaret Denisenko.

Even the most serious sin is forgiven via repentance, said Filaret, the leader of the liquidated UOC-KP schismatic organization, in an interview on Ukraine 24 channel.

He noted that in his life there have been no such cases when he “did not forgive sins” to someone who appealed to him for this.

“There is no sin that cannot be forgiven. But in order for a sin to be forgiven, it is necessary for a person to repent, to recognize himself/herself as a sinner in whatever sin. This is the condition. Moreover, the severity of sin does not matter, what matters is repentance: if there is repentance, sin is forgiven, but if there is no repentance, it is not forgiven,” Filaret explained.

Earlier, the Chancellor of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Anthony, recalled that schismatics who did not repent become heretics.
