    I always had the dilemma in wondering if we should forgive someone who isn't sorry. God doesn't so why should we? But I think the verse about going a mike when compelled and turning the other cheek answers as much. I think your correct in saying to hand them over to the one who judges in righteousness. Blessings to you, thanks for reading.

    Don't know if I posted this already but here's something I wrote about forgiveness. Forgiveness Confusion and hatred is what is bred when selfish thoughts and actions become habitual. The only guide in that kind of darkness, the only hope in that sort of oblivion of nothingness comes soely from your capacity to forgive others. If you don't forgive your not forgiven. The Lord teaches that the greatest commandment is to love others as yourself. When this is done then you fulfill the law. But what does it mean to love someone? To actually love someone for who they are, flaws and virtues alike? What does it mean to love like God loves? To love selflessly and relentlessly? I firmly believe that you cannot love properly if you don't forgive often and quickly. The Lord says to forgive others or you won't be forgiven. The doctrine of forgiveness is so essential to the christian life that its even part of the the Lords prayer. The easiest way to lock yourelf in a mental and spiritual prison is by focusing on yourself. What you have, what you don't have, what you need, what you've lost, what you've gained. It can be deceiving. There's nothing wrong with self-reflection. The book of proverbs is based off the self-reflections of a wise Jewish king. But there's a fine line between self-reflection and narcisism. Between an attitude of repentence and masochistic thought tendencies. To focus inwardly for too long is to disregard the needs of others. An essential part of being human is fellowship and friendship. If your not actively looking to help others then your only damaging yourself. Like putting a plant in a closet and expecting it to grow. It won't happen. The first step to becoming an effecient servant of Christ is to actively practice forgiveness. Matthew 5:38-42 says You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."" These teachings on revenge tell a great deal about how the Lord wants us to live our lives. I don't think anyone has the mental or spiritual capacity to follow this particular teaching without a firm grasp on what it means to forgive. The Lord also teaches that we should love those who persecute us or despitefully use us. Again, I don't believe that loving your enemy is possible without forgiveness. Luke 17:3-4 says If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying 'I repent,' you must forgive them.""" I love this particular scripture. It goes a long way to show exactly what the Lord expects from us as Christians. Notice how he doesn't leave room for compromise. If they repent, you must forgive. Forgiveness goes to show the love of God to a dark world whilst simultaneously keeping the fire and light of the spirit bright and powerful. Learn to understand the importance of forgiveness and learn to practice the art of forgiveness with everyone you meet under every circumstance. To do this from a pure heart will bring blessings unmeasured and spirtual peace that can't be compared with anything this world has to offer.

    Tree It would seem to be, That the lustre born from this nebulas tree, has pierced through the shadows that seem to cling, Cling to the souls of you and me. With forbidden fruit, that extends life. Shows the contrast, of hope and strife. With sweet nector, to illuminate. The difference, between love and hate. This wonderful tree, In the garden of eve, has been preserved. For both you and me. With winged cherubs who lord, Over the entrance with flaming sword. With burning seraphs who fly, All around with countless eyes. Define the rights, From high heaven. This godly fruit, To mortals given.
  4. I love it great verses.
  5. Relationship with God isn't based off I do this and get this and if I don't get I'm mad at God. For one , God has never sinned. To be mad at a perfect God is nonsense. You need to kill pride and realize the depth of Love God has in Jesus Christ . Then your eye s will be open .
  6. Here I am There it is Kill me now So I can live It's done, it's over My mistake can't be erased Run, run for cover Your faith has been misplaced Here I come, I'm coming for you For your lies, your sin, your wickedness too Here I come, im coming for you For your light your love your hope your truth I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you Can't hide, can't run Can't deny, the Son There you are, there it is And here i come.
  7. Are you born again? If so you would know if it was from God I would assume.
  8. I read it all and I think they are great points. I've done some witnessing online before and its has gone alright. I still need to follow up and do alot more but I'm trying.
  9. Its very wonderful verse because the water Jesus gives you will never be thirsty ever again. Like the water that flowed from the rock during Moses time.
  10. I'd love to try to help. Could you elaborate more on your situation?
  11. My mother used to know of Jesus when my dad was alive because my dad loved and followed the Lord but now that my dad has passed shes had a very hard time keeping it together..i pray for her daily with tears and sacrifice a lot to show her the love of God. She can be so hateful though...she tries to get me to doubt my faith.. Shes on drugs and she needs Jesus bad. Please pray for her and me.
