THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS
Permalink  
 


I want to make it clear to all of you that I was indeed wrong and apologized. Nobody_Just_Nobody gave me the gift of forgiveness. I am a Christian but I am also a man needing what Christ did at the Cross. He payed the ultimate sacrifice so that I could be free of unforgiveness and the evils of sin.

  • Collossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
  • Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
  • Luke 6:37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
  • Matthew 6:14-16 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
  • Mark 11:25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

Even if you arent believers in the Bible there is wisdom in forgiveness. Without it, relationships are torn apart, wars are started, and all in all I would say the world would be a much darker place without it. So before you all go judging what in my closet you may have to look inside your own.

It's all good, Sir Knight. Relax.

We talk, we fight, we yell. We laugh. It's what we do, that's what makes this an interesting place. thumbsup.gif

I think you are mixing your messages there... "forgiveness" and "judge not, lest ye be judged" are completely separate concepts and issues.
