God Does Not Forgive

God tells us in the Bible that we should forgive 70x70, turn the other cheek etc. but how come He didn't do that? The flood, the children making fun of the man's baldness, Adam and Eve? I'm sure there are more. Thank you.

mima, repent can mean to change ones mind yes, but to repent and turn to Christ means to "turn from your sin and turn to Jesus" when John the Baptist said to repent it is the word "metanoeo" which means to think differently. when the word repentance is used in the NT it is referred to as reversal or turn from.
---evangelistjerry on 10/22/08

Sue, you have to rightly divide the Word. In the Old Covenant, the genealogy through whom the seed would come had to be preserved. When man became so wicked that the intentions of his heart was only wickedness continually, God operated to preserve the line. Since God left man a choice of life and death, blessing and cursing, the choice of death and cursing by man left God no choice but to destroy anything that would bring destruction to those who sought to destroy the seed. That has been the adversary's intention all along, right? To destroy the seed? When the adversary seeks whom he may devour, he is not after you but after the hindering of the life of the One in you.

Father God always answers prayer. Because He is a Spirit, He answers us through our spirits. If you only look in the natural for the answer without inclining your spiritual ear to spiritual things, you may very well miss the answer, not because you can't hear God in your spirit but because you haven't inclined your ear to that dimension. God operates through His Word. The gospel works effectually in them that believe. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

You hear and still you fail to open your Ears, Your taught and still you refuse to Learn, you Know and yet you continue as if your void....

I had to find answers, Work them, live them Prove them, Now you do Your Own home work.... you talk as though Christians are born followers!!

If it was not written would You not say How comes.....

It is written Yet You Fail to comprehend.

Who's fault is that?

I am not God but If you read his word, ONLY this time Without the Prejudices of the false Ministry you sat under.... You may just get the answers You are looking for.
---Carla3939 on 10/22/08

How is God refusing to hear just your prayers?

Did Christ himself think he was forsaken, Moses felt lost, David felt God wasn't hearing him, and many other Saints Paul even described that he was seen as Dung, Job was tried so why is your Protest stuck on modern mans tragedy?

are your eyes so closed that you for one minute cannot see that things have never been so bad in the world to the point of proving the LIVING WORD? ask that Your eyes may be OPENED.

I would like for someone to point out to me where " the woman at the well" ever repented? Ever ask for forgiveness?

---mima on 10/22/08

mima, when she asked for the water she started the path from my understanding.
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

She was also lost sheep of house as well. Several things going on in story, one of my favorites. Christ as Judean should not have spoken to her.
Christ knew who she was. Sheep he had come for.
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Matthew 15:23-25

I would like for someone to point out to me where " the woman at the well" ever repented? Ever ask for forgiveness?

Repentance means "changing of our minds", now every person is born without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ and when we change our mind's about who Christ is, we have repented!!
---mima on 10/22/08

The people did not repent because they did not believe what the prophets said (except for one or two kings). It was not until John the Baptist came to preach repentance that people began to see their own need for forgiveness. Jesus and his disciples continued to baptize into repentance.
---frances008 on 10/21/08

I've read most of these responses and I don't see where anyone answered this question with the Truth of God's word.

God FORGIVES those who repent. He hears the cries of a repentent heart. So if someone hasn't repented, then they remain in bondage until they die.

However, God also allows us to suffer the consequences of our sin. King Davied committed adultery and murder and he suffered greatly the consequences of his sin. God took away the son born to him by Bathsheba.

So God does FORGIVE those who repent. Jesus's blood covers our sins, but sometimes if we committing the same sin over and over, even as a Christian, we will suffer the consequences of that sin.
---donna8365 on 10/21/08

God has forgiven humans daily for ages, but know this truth: Absolutely no forgiveness is given to anyone whom does not repent, does not turn away from their sin and ask for forgiveness, does not seek to do right rather than to keep doing sin. There is no forgiveness when a person stays in sin, only when a person leaves sin and turns to serve God are they forgiven and not before. God's longsuffering is not the samething as God's forgiveness. The prodigal son was not forgiven and restored back to his father until he had a change of heart and chose to leave his life and turn back to his father again, then his restoration and blessing began, but not while he was separate from his father and doing his own will rather than his father's good will.
---Eloy on 10/21/08

Again, "If god has such supernatural powers, why doesn't he use them---today? Why is he MIA?"

Bible verses that seem to indicate that people like me aren't going to heaven because I don't believe as you do, do little to answer the question.

Why is God willing to torture people in an everlasting hell for lack of belief, but ignore their prayers as the suffer on earth?
---atheist on 10/20/08

carla sister, thank you for the scripture. It does not change what you said. It is not Christian to condemn sinners. Christ came to save sinners not the ones already saved. This is the simplest of revelations and is plainly spoken of by Christ himself. So you can quote scripture, but how can that save the lost when there is no love being shown or any love in the words you speak.

carla, that was not a Christian thing to say, asking if athiest middle name was satan's.
We are not suppose to act like that. When we do it darkens God's light in us. How is athiest suppose to know that God is real if we as Christians constantly condemn him. We are suppose to be a light to a dying world. Show love not hate because love is of God, hate is of the enemy.
Vengence is mine says the Lord. And he will have it. But not until after Jesus has saved as many as He can. Then Jesus will condemn those who chose not to follow His way.
Athiest has two choices- everlasting Life or eternal death. Both are Spiritual. How can he make the choice if we don't show him love?
---ginger on 10/20/08

athiest, I understand what you are asking.
Think on this, how many people would appreciate their freewill taken away?
Then ther is the fact that if God did do this, we would not realize on our own that we need HIM.
The things that happen in the world are done by selfish selfcentered people who could care less about anyone elses desires or needs other than their own.
So really God does not let things like this happen, man does by creating the situations in the first place.
---ginger on 10/18/08

I certainly could not do a better job than your god. But that is because I do not have the supernatural powers that you assign to him.

If I were omnipotent, omnipresent, and were actually responsible for creating creation, then yes I do think I could do a better job.

I'd be in there stopping the bad and teaching the good. I certainly wouldn't have wiped out all of my creation and started all over. I would have keep people on the straight and narrow with demonstrations more impressive than a burning bush, here and there.

If god has such supernatural powers, why doesn't he use them---today? Why is he MIA?
---atheist on 10/16/08

actually athiest, everyone that God felt worthy was on the Ark. The people who died were idolatrous, and sinful, Literally.
Noah and his family were in God's favor. So, in reality God did not punish the innocent in the great flood. He punished the wicked.

You may want to try picking up the Bible and read it. Start small, maybe some childrens Bible stories to aquant you with how Awesome GOD really is.
God bless you!!

1 john 1:9 is not for Christians.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I do not intend to risk taking communion with unconfessed sins. Yes the cross did it all, but we are still commanded to repent. Else, those who reject God would be saved by the cross too!
---obewan on 10/15/08

Why would one quote 1 john 1:9 to negate the Cross? The Cross is our only hope and foundation. How do we receive forgiveness of sin? Through faith in HIM. Its the gift of God. We have been made righteous. We dont have it by asking, its by grace through faith. There is no forgiveness of sin without the Blood.To think we must ask to be forgiven of sin is to say we will be asking tell the day we die, always in and out of forgiveness. This is not a gift, ITS BONDAGE. The Cross sets you free.

1 john 1:9 is not for Christians.

How can you say God does not forgive?
Have you not just slandered his love. He forgave you did he not, or you would seize to exist. We all are forgiven if we want to be. God lets us learn from error, he watches over all of us. He sent his son to die for us.
He forgives everyday for every way, my friend. "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked"
---schellsr on 10/14/08

It seems to me that god was unforgiving when he sent the flood, killing everyone, plants and animals included, except for one man and his family that he considered without sin.

Could he have been more forgiving then? Maybe sending Christ, a little bit earlier in history?

Duane:-Your post IMHO is WRONG, Misleading for many reasons. But mainly because it makes no mention of Mans sinful cognizance, and appeal to be deviant.and God says "Nothing defiled enters Heaven".so if one does NOT ask for forgiveness, the comitted sin remains.This is the obstacle to enter His Kingdom."Be therefore perfect as your Heavenly Father is Perfect"Remember the sin of DISOBEDIENCE in Eden? How did God respond to that!!

And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee

That seeing they may see, and not perceive, and hearing they may hear, and not understand, lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

It's NOT automatic(Forgivness)

">>Christ died for the forgiveness of sin. We dont ask to be forgiven, we ARE forgiven.<<"
If we don't ask for forgiveness, how do you interpret 1 John 1:9?

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9 KJV)

My understanding is that confession is part of repentance, and it is a command. We are warned in the Bible about taking communion with unconfessed sins even lest we be made sick.

Asking will NOT get you forgiven. Believing in the finished work of the Cross will.

To Whosoever has an ear to hear?

God always forgives. Forgiveness is always coming from the Lord to us, we just need to learn to ask for it, in order to receive it.

James 4:1-3 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

This is why it SEEMS like the Lord's Forgiveness is not in the world.

God doesn't chose not to forgive his people, we chose not to let him. Adam and Eve had been warned not to eat the fruit, same as Noah had warned the world about the flood. No one wanted God's love and one of the things he gave us is freewill. He won't force himself on any of us and where it hurts him when we tell him we don't care, he'll let us go our own path. The people during Noah's time weren't killed because God forced water down their throats but because they wouldn't let God take them to the boat.

#1 There is forgiveness of sins only in Jesus Christ. God is a Holy God and cannot in an wise tolerate sin. That is why He had to creation a totally New, sinless, race in the form of the New Creation life He places in each one of us at the time of our New Heavenly Birth. God is a God of love but He is also a God of judgment. In the time of the flood, the people were very evil with no thought of changing.

Judy, Grace does not mean lack of judgment. Grace comes to the obedient and also to those whom repent from their wrongs, but the husband and wife did neither. When the needs of the church were made known to the worshippers, ie: lack of food, clothes, shelter, etc. And the husband and wife agreed to sell their land for a set price and bring the price to the church, and then afterward decided privately to only give a part of the price.

One big obstacle - man. Every time God leaves us alone, we tend to destroy each other. What's happening today is what happened in Noah's days and in Lot's days. So how does God plan to get us back to paradise?

God's plan to get us back to paradise. There are two resurrections. The first when Jesus returns where the dead in Christ will rise first followed by the living in Christ. These will no taste the second death.

After the thousand years are up all the other people dead since the beginning will rise and will be judged. Those found in the Book of Life will live forever, those not found will die a second eternal death.

Every person had a chance to choose what life they wanted. Noah preached about what was to happen. Jesus planted the seed to tell the world about the Gospel of God. In these end times, the Godpel is preach over all the Earth. Every person had a choice: eternal life or eternal death. Even if a town never hear of Jesus, they still will be judged by what they did on Earth because they knew in their hearts what was right and what was wrong. Unfortunately, most people's hearts have grown cold as a stone.

that would be why he sent down Jesus to wash away our sins which he didnt have to do because he is perfect. Being imperfect beings we have no right nor place to pass judgement and condemn another person for a fault. Because this would be very hypercitical on our part. But as for God, he has the right and power to do any of the above. By the way if you didnt understand the 1st sentence, GOD DOES FORGIVE

Emcee: "Sue::If you really love God you would NOT ask a question to understand..."

This is a legitimate question from a person who sincerely seeks an answer to understand. Job asked a lot of questions yet he was a, if not the most Godly man in the world. I have faith that Sue will find her answer if she keeps on seeking, but it surely won't come from you.
