Hello,well bro.Eloy bless the Lord,I got to church ...we had prayer and Pastor saw how I was upset and after prayer we talked. He understands my concern and yes,told me pretty much same as you did brother. He explain how ever they came to ask does he know "where they can get work?" he answered No,that was that 'n they left. Ok,guess I over reacted. Thankyou,brother & family. Love of Jesus!

ELENA, One day soon Jesus will be removing the tares from the wheat, and separating the goats from the sheep, then we will not have to tolerate their evil foolishness. Just pray for them and keep your eyes upon our Lord Jesus Christ, he has a glorious place for us in heaven, and a burning lake of fire for every one of those whom have done us wrong. I guarrantee it, my sister. These foolish sinners have been warned many times to love one another and to do good to one another, and yet they still fill full their cups to overflowing with woe and evil, for their sins against God's people. Yes, Karma is righteous. I have seen the end of the wicked, and let me juat say that it is not a pretty sight.

Well,been a while now,yes..I did forgive these 2 people but,I did question as to why the leader at our church would continue to let them come to our church know they run the same lie that they are jobless,need help & eventually some poor soul feels sorry for them & like they did me & some other women steal your purse & try or do mess up your credit & whatever "use" your ID!He preaches alot on forgiveness...that's fine. I receive that,but I also,tell the couples & women "watch your wallet or purse".... be carefull with those 2 people. I have posted this also,as blogglet's see If I make it this time. Thankyou & God bless... I did forgive them. I just know they have not changed.

Moderator is so right!! When I see my sin and realize it has been washed away by the blood of Jesus, I understand and see forgiveness in a totally new light. Unforgiveness has no place in the spirit filled life.

If you have confessed you have a problem with unforgiveness, God has provided us to help you to get "healed" to do better in His love > "Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, thay you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16)
You are not on your own; we are in this together; we ALL need help to do better at forgiving. We ALWAYS will be able to improve ! ! !

Forgiveness is freeing for you. You hurt no one but yourself when you harbor unforgiveness. You block your own blessings. Christ said, if you don't forgive then you will not be forgiven. Christ died for us and forgave them for crucifying him. Since no one has been raptured yet and you're alive to talk about what ails you, then use the pentultimate example, Christ, on how to live victoriously. Forgive and set yourself free.

Forgive as Christ forgave you...
How did Jesus forgive??
While we were still sinners HE forgave us our sins. He forgave us all, while we were still enemies. Before we asked, He forgave us.

You have forgiven them and perhaps, you don't even know it. Do you think about the offense all the time? Talk the offense all the time? How is you relationship with God? These are questions you know better than anyone.

To be unable to forgive > this is a very hard and painful thing. We love you and are praying for you.
"'And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.'" (Mark 11:25)
So, God WANTS forgiveness; so, we forgive because we desire to please our Father, and not just in order to get forgiven.

I do know about that subject. I have had to forgive my spouse for some bad things. Because I forgave and never mention it again, along with our daughters death, He is now a saved, born again old sinner. Keep praying. I did a lot of praying.

The power of forgiveness...the cross...frees us AND others. When Jesus was on the cross He said Father forgive the for they know not what they are doing...and that spoken word released something which bore fruit. When Stephen was stoned and prayed for the forgiveness of those present(including Saul/Paul) spiritually forgiveness was loosed and just after that saul/Paul was converted...not an accident

It is easier said then done to just say "forgive them anyways". Depending on what happened, you need to give yourself time to heal. And do alot of praying. But remember that until you forgive this person, Christ can't forgive you.

Forgivness is a gift you give yourself. As mentioned below, you are the one that benefits.
---Bruce5656 on 3/21/06|
John, I agree that forgiveness benifits us, but it also benifits others. Never underestimate the power of forgiveness
---christina on 3/21/06|
Forgiving is for YOUR benefit, not others.
Not forgiving is like eating rat poison, hoping the rat will die.
Forgiveness releases you form the bonds of "obligation" you hold over the other, but the other can not give.
Forgiveness does not mean that you permit the embezzler to take up the church collection after jail time. You gotta use common sense.

Give yourself some more time to heal. Time heals all wounds.
To truly forgive someone means to let go of the hope that the past could have been different.
Look at it this way, to for-give means you forgive them and GIVE them your blessings.
To for-sell means you are expecting something in return for your forgiveness. Example: I expect an apology before I can forgive them, or they need to SHOW me remorse before I can forgive. Do not SELL your forgiveness!
