Forgiveness Forum

Forgiveness Forum: Any bloggers here you need forgiveness from? Any you need to forgive? I'll start: I thought Jack_8773 was insensitive on my "prayer request for baby" blog. I harshly retaliated on a seperate blog, insulting him. I forgive you Jack, and I ask you to forgive me.

being human it,s not in our nature to forgive,I might say we must work thru it usually.and unlike God we forgive butmany times never forget.

Great peace have they that love Thy law and nothing shall offend them. Ps.119:165

And this I pray that your love would abound yet more and more in knowledge and all judgment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ unto the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11

Offended? Fall in love with Jesus and abound in love toward one another.

I just want to be sure no one misunderstands me,I don't mean changing your name for a good reason,nothing wrong with that. Just talking about those who use that practice to hide behind so they don't have to take responsibilty for what they say. In other words making a game of it.
---Darlene_1 on 3/16/08


I didn't realize FORGIVENESS would cause so much contraversy for CHRISTIANS! Instead of forgive eachother, why not make unverifiable accusations about role-players? Makes sense to me! Anyway, I'm signing out of this one. Too discouraging compared to what it was meant to be. I really meant what I said to Jack. I hope he reads this. I hope he forgives me. I don't require a response. Just thought I'd put it out there and figured maybe other Christians might want to do the same. Guess I was wrong.
---j._nonymous on 3/1/08


Alan, I feel that those who keep accusing some of us of having multiple names just get a kick of seeing us respond. My own personal view is that it is those who do the accusing who are actually the ones with many names. Regarding Cindy's entry at the start of this blog, the very fact that she keeps on at this subject like a dog with a bone shows that her 'forgiveness' was not genuine but just another excuse to bring up the subject once again. I intend ignoring the subject from now on.
---RitaH on 3/1/08




Just wondering. Isn't using lots of different names on here, and trying to fool someone,the same as lying since they don't belong to that person and they aren't their names? So if its lying then the person is guilty of being a thief,adulter,murder,etc. since the Bible says if you sin on one thing you are guilty of all James 2:10 & 11, We are under the Law of Love and sins make us guilty of breaking it.
---Darlene_1 on 2/29/08


Alan of UK, your thesus was read with many laughs. Thanks. PS. I think I also accused you of being in with Cindy, so please forgive me. I have learnt the error of my ways. This is the forgiveness thread so you'd better forgive me.
---frances008 on 2/29/08


No, wait a minute, I thought Alan of UK and MikeM were the same person but I did have some circumstantial evidence. When I asked Alan a question, MikeM answered it.
---frances008 on 2/29/08


There are some points I make that are subtle. On this FORGIVENESS thread ACCUSATIONS were made. I am just showing that ACCUSATIONS is a game for both teams. I believe Sue is just Sue. May I take the opportunity to say that I am frances and not Frances (a completely different poster). I have enough sins of my own without being thought of as another person who also writes on these blogs. Maybe I will add numbers to my name.
---frances on 2/29/08


What I love about this question is that the person who asked it uses "nonymous". The thing I've noticed is that posters like Jack who are genuine don't get offender easy. After all, these are just our opinions on here. Thank God we live in a country where we can state our opinion without being put in prison for it.
---Susie on 2/29/08




Alan Of UK ::My friend you have made your study into a thesis.Reminds me of an old saying."Rules are made for Fools & men who consider themselves Wise, break them. Yet today they languish in Prison.
---Emcee on 2/29/08


Francis, no, I'm just Sue. I've been around Christainet for a pretty long time now, maybe 3 or 4 years (maybe longer), and I've always been just Sue. Nobody else.
---sue on 2/29/08


frances: It's impossible to know who is really who. So, can we stop wasting time and stick to the subject? Thank-you.
---j._nonymous on 2/29/08


Susie ... # 1 ...I had not noticed when I was accused of being you, but I have been (and still am) accused of not living in the UK, of being MikeM, of being female, and of orchestrating multiple blogging.
Strange that these accusations, also against others, came from a group, including a Mike (not MikeM) Lynda, Loveable Linda, someelse whose name I don't remember, and Cindy, who is still at it, and now Bob has joined, or is he a clone?<
---alan_of_UK on 2/29/08


Susie ... # 2 .. Quite honestly, I can undersrtand whatb happens on the personal problems blogs, because someone else comes in to say that they also have the same problem ... they are common after all. I have only once noticed a situation where the same person has stsrted using a different name
---alan_of_UK on 2/29/08


Susie ... # 3 .Where I think multiple blogging is dishonest is more on the argumentative blogs, where one individual creates additional bloggers in order to magnify the support that his point of view has. This occurred to me once, when all of a sudden a whole boat-load of new names turned up, all attacking me and my viewpoint, so trying to give the impression of massive support for the attack. That was on a theological issue

Bob, Cindy and Sue, are you all the same person, as you all accuse others of the same thing...I know in my case it is not true, and Alan of UK who was accused also denies the accusation. So who is the Accuser? Presumably, millions of people can come to these threads, or do you know something I don't and only a dozen or so are here, using all kinds of different names, and Alan and I are the only genuine ones???
---frances on 2/28/08


Fools rush in where angels dare to tread What am I-dont answer!!!
---Emcee on 2/28/08


alan...I noticed that questions on this blog are the same ones posted over and over only using different names. Usually, it is the mother-in-law problem or problem at her church where she doesn't feel wanted. Then all of a sudden, she begins using her original name to post after weeks of using the other name. It's always the same story, complaining about mother-in-law usually.
---Susie on 2/28/08


alan...I found it funny when someone accused you and I of being the same person. Especially since I live in the USA and am a female and you are in the UK and are male. Maybe we are twins separated at birth.

Bob: Any bloggers here you need forgiveness from? Any you need to forgive?

Either speak plainly so we can all understand, or stick to the topic.
---j._nonymous on 2/28/08


Bye Cindy ... Welcome Bob!
---alan_of_UK on 2/28/08


When I saw this thread I thought, be careful. So I decided not to write on it as it was just another opportunity for the accusations to start coming. But then we were accused of not writing on it. You cannot win.
---frances on 2/28/08


It's not difficult for me to keep track of who's angry. Not any more.
Strange thing, I can see the setups.
It's all a routine. The mocking, the takedown, the "heavy", the smokescreens, the lies, the lies and the lies.
Got Lies? Need a deliverance. God is a God that He cannot lie.

Got lies? You need to kick the lord of the flies out of your house.

Lying, come by it naturally, seems so right and perfectly normal?

Need a deliverance.

Pharisee, I love what you said,"if you choose to not be offended there is nothing to forgive",that is so very,very true and a wise statement.
---Darlene_1 on 2/28/08


Susie ... You allege that "one person uses so many names"
So you join Cindy's band of accusers!
Can you give one jot of evidence
---alan_of_UK on 2/28/08


The problem with these blogs is that one person uses so many names that it is hard to keep track of who gets upset with who. Sometimes it looks like the same person is just arguing with themself. And, so many times these blogs become pity parties for a couple of individuals. It makes me wonder if some of them have ever felt the VICTORY of being a Christian.

I don't doubt your motives, should I, J nonymous? I just believe such a thread is open to abuse of the worst kind. I think the evidence shows I was correct.
---frances on 2/27/08


I get the gist of the blog.

What I was pointing out is that, one person named a laundry list of complaints about others trying to be graceful by not naming names and then trying to pretend all is forgiven when if it was the case real dialog and understanding would've proceeded that process of forgiveness.
There would have been nothing to forgive if one just chose not to be offended through tangible restoration and understanding and nothing to say now. Offended? -2peter 1:8-9
---Pharisee on 2/27/08


Let's be direct, Cindy- any of these comments directed to me?

I choose to forgive bloggers that use fictional characters to attack the rest of us that do not use that technique.
I choose to forgive bloggers that have laid claim to imaginary authority over others that use the same characters to hide behind each and every day.
I choose to forgive the speaking out of both sides of the mouth, flattery one blog and hatred for you the next.

My purpose for being here failed if not resolved,
---Pharisee on 2/27/08


OK, sounds good. So long now.

Well, well, well, If I had the conviction of the Holy Spirit I could do this but since I do not I suppose all is well. It better be. Please God instead of man. For it is impossible to please both. You will serve one master and hate the other one. Ect.
---catherine on 2/27/08


I am not aware that I have offended anyone. It is possible- quite likely that I have. If I have said anything hurtful or rude, let me know so I can appologize. I weigh my words carefully but I still struggle at times.
---Kella3336 on 2/27/08


Bye and thanks! You be happy too.
---Nana on 2/27/08


frances: If we can offend in public, we can forgive in public. I am no better than anyone here. You're right in saying God knows the motives of the heart. If so, He would know my motive was to have a forum to forgive and repent specifically as it relates to the bloggers here. I was really wrong for insulting Jack's intelligence due to my hurt. Forgive, and repent: this is Christianity 101. No one is asked to tell their darkest secrets. This is simply a chance to reconcile, if need be.

Blessings to all of you. I am going on to do other things with this time I am spending here. Love God. Love your neighbor. Be happy! Good-by.
---InimicusStultitiae on 2/26/08


I think people should be careful not to wash their dirty linen in public. If they have something against someone they should go to that person. If they still don't feel sorry, then you should go to the Pastor with one or two witnesses. God is the final judge. Too often this kind of thing is a way of ACCUSING rather than FORGIVING others. God knows what motivates people to do or not do things.
---frances on 2/26/08


Pharisee:

I WAS offended. So I DID forgive. I DID offend. So I DID apologize.

I think the reason for the lack of replies here because people usually just apologize or ask for 'forgiveness' on the particular blog they did whatever they need to be forgiven on.

Do we really need a whole separate blog to forgive the bloggers?

But just in case I'm wrong, please forgive me.
---sue on 2/26/08


j._nonymous, I like your style! If we, as Christians, don't lead by example, how will we spread the Good News! I love you!
---Deb on 2/25/08


J.Nonymous, the scarcity of response to your blog here tells us that even though they have forgiven by a gracious God themselves, they have little interest in forgiving others or being forgiven by them, a sad commentary on how many Christians ultimately behave.
---InimicusStultitiae on 2/25/08


Only one person here has disparaged me personally and he in essence apologized already. If I have hurt anyone here, please tell me. Thanks.
