8But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
9And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
10Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
1 Corinthians 4
14I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
15For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
You are probably thinking of 2 Samuel 12:13. Nathan said that to David concerning his having had Uriah killed in order to to take his wife Bathsheba. The Hebrew word (translated forgiven) means to pass over, kind of like the Angel of Death passing over the Israelites and killing the first born sons of the Egyptians. His sin was transferred to their son that was a product of the union between David and Bathsheba. The son was to die and David was to live.
In the case of David, it even goes so far as to say - blood sacrifice is not good enough, if it was he would give plenty of it. And the only thing that was good enough was for him to repent for his sins - which he did. And when he did, he was automatically forgiven - or already forgiven is how it puts if I remember correctly.
7Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.
8And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
9In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.
10And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.
11Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
12And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.
