How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by JourneytoEL(f): 7:24am On Nov 22
Matt 6:14-15: For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Unforgiveness is the act of refusing to forgive someone who has wronged you.
It is similar to drinking poison and expecting your enemy to die.

It is unfortunate that this sin is so popular in our times, even amongst Christians and has been given the new name "beefing". The most recent exposé of the popular twin musicians who haven't spoken to each other and their families for 4 years is typical example of how dangerous the sin of unforgiveness is.

How dangerous is unforgiveness to a Christian?
1. Our heavenly Father won't forgive your sins if you fail to forgive the sins of others. (Matt 6:14-15)

2. It is a straight path to hell fire and eternal seperation from the presence of God.(matt 18:23-35)

3. It is the mother of several sins as anger, bitterness,hatred and resentment. When you are under the control of these sins, it means you are no longer been controlled by the Spirit nature but by the human nature.( Rom 8:5-7) . Whereas, the Word of God states that those who are controlled by their human nature cannot please God (Rom 8:8 )

4. Unforgiveness is the major cause of divorce in our society. It is so bad that divorced couples deny each other the right to see their children. The kids are badly affected as they grow up been brainwashed from one parent about how bad the other is. (Lev 19:17-18)

5. It is so dangerous that Jesus advised us to drop our gifts at the altar and reunite with our families before presenting the gift to God.(Matt 5:23-24)

6. Jesus advised us to forgive 7 × 77 times because he understands the dangers of unforgiveness to the human soul.(matt 18:21-22)

If you are reading this and you have a grudge, beef or malice with anyone, make it a point of duty to forgive the person and reconcile with that person today for tomorrow is too late. No matter what the person did to you, it is nothing compared to losing your soul for eternity.

As dangerous as not being saved because one's sins are retained instead of being forgiven by God.

It's very dangerous because it's the sin most believers don't take seriously, yet it could be more dangerous than other sins, because it's a sin that makes other sins unforgivable.

It's easier said than done though, hence I always asked God to help me forgive those who trespass against me, and He's really helped me because it's much easier for me to do so now.

I always pray for my enemies so that's one evidence of forgiveness.

God bless.

So are you telling us to forgive Buhari for all he has done to us ?
Re: How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by Stephenomozzy(m): 7:49am On Nov 22
It's even dangerous for one's mental health. Forgive even when they don't deserve it, it doesn't mean you have to continue with them.. You let go of the pain and hurting and dissociate yourself from dem.

The OP just dey post nonsense but based on say na Church matter e come be like say e make sense.

Unforgiveness is not a bad thing entirely. If it was then why hasn't Yahweh forgiven Lucifer till date.

These religious folks are a bunch of rather dumb folks. No harm meant.

But I mean, ive always had that thought as a kid. It's just common sense to practice what you preach.

I have a couple of niggas that fuxked with me in a pretty bad way in the past just as Lucifer fuxked Yahweh up according to Biblical myths.

Some nigga scammed me of N1m worth of BTC deal 2017. Another stole 100k from me. Trust me, if I ever set eyes on them I'll prolly fuxk them up too and make sure they don't stand on both legs again at least not without a crutch

‘Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’” (1 Samuel 15:3)

U criticise the fake genocide in lekki but practice a religion that endorse the real genocide in his book

My friend cele guy married a deeper life girl almost by force because of the girl's father's resistance... Even as a pastor that he his, he didn't forgive the guy till he passed away... Very bitter old man. He should continue to rot in hell.

You can tell how dangerous a person is by the way they hold their anger inside themselves quietly.

very dangerous. In fact as a Christian you must be all forgiven no matter what, just like Christ.
Re: How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by uBuNiT: 9:32am On Nov 22
You forgive for your own good. You are not doing the offender good as much as you do yourself. Only a wise man knows the important of forgiveness

Forgiveness is a sign of weakness. That is why we Africans are at the bottom of the pyramid. Imagine forgiving someone that has not truly repented to you and paid restitution.
Even the God that you serve will not forgive you without true repentance and restitution, but even still, you must bear the consequences of those sins. For Whatsoever a man soweth, that he reapeth.

Forgiveness is you freeing up yourself from unnecessary burden, you don't actually need to be a Christian to be help yourself.

Be free
Be happy

Unforgiveness
Re: How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by Juliusmalema: 9:39am On Nov 22


As a Christian there are three steps to forgiveness

First - You must first of all forgive yourself

Second- You forgive others

Third - Forgive God.


Unfogivenes doesn't really means not forgiving others because you may hate yourself without knowing.

Unfogivenes can only be dangerous to the person himself that refuses to forgive because in actual sense you have not forgiven yourself.

How can you forgive others when you have not forgiven your own very self.

So the danger of unfogivenes lies with same person who refuses to forgive and every burden also lies with you.

When you recognize that only what God has allowed that anyone can do to you, you will learn to forgive. Your maker allowed it! Learn to trust he knows why he allowed it and be at peace. What’s the desperation to feel offended?
How can you trust he can save your soul but you can’t trust he knows what he is doing?

No way u can be a Christ-like and still have unforgiving heart, its entirely not possible.

A Christ-like becomes a life in you, u live it, u love it and not by quotations.


Perhaps people still don't really understand the word Christ-like.

This behavior is good for your survival, cause letting them close again might spell irreparable damage.
