• Jesus quite clearly pointed out that anyone who hopes to receive His Father’s forgiveness better be able to demonstrate that they had also forgiven everyone who had offended them in some way. Now, every time you bring this up someone will argue, “But you don’t know what they did to me!” Well, you are correct, I don’t know, but I also don’t care. Jesus never provided that as an exemption. This is not a matter of earning or deserving forgiveness, but of qualifying for it through repentance. ~N.H. Hoekes
