Christians are being taught that we must forgive everyone for any wrong, but unconditional forgiveness is NOT a biblical requirement. Join us at the MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting on Blogtalkradio every Sunday night at 9pmPST, where we separate myths from the Word of God. Hear Part 1 of "Unconditional Forgiveness Not Required" archived at Blogtalkradio at the following url, if "they" let you.
Part 2 was recorded on Sunday, July 19.
The bible says, "God hated Esau." (Malachi 1:3; Romans 9:13)
Christian martyrs in heaven have not forgiven their murderers. They cry out for vengeance, and God does not chastise them for holding grudges against people who killed them. Instead, He promises to avenge them, and He will. (Revelation 6:9-11)
If God gave automatic forgiveness, there would be no hell. It is very liberating for some Christians to learn that neither God nor they must feel any obligation to forgive unrepentant people who have rejected God or harmed them. Christians must be freed from the pressure to forgive unrepentant people who were responsible for their exploitation.
