JourneytoEL:
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.

jesusjnr2020:
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.



Forgive yourself first before praying and forgiving others.

Christ can't Imagine things

His words are A and Amen..

You are the one imagining things to be praying for others when you are not at ease with yourself.

Forgiveness have steps.

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

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.

O ye reading this... Do not let yourself be deceived by hook line and sinker Christians.... No be everything them dey forgive. Some things are unforgivable..


Even God is yet to forgive Satan for trying to take over his kingdom
everything is forgivable
Because nobody is above mistakes. It's by making mistakes we become better.

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. Even the God that you serve will not forgive you without true repentance and reparations, but you must still bear the repercussions of your sins. For Whatsoever a man soweth, that he reapeth.
but forgiving someone that sincerely apologises to you, is that a sign of weakness also?

Why not show me where Christ said we should forgive ourselves first to prove you're not imagining things that Christ didn't say?

I would show you where He said we should forgive others otherwise God wouldn't forgive us just to prove to you I'm not.

Retaliation is a must. Dont ever forgive. Revenge is the greatest virtue.
Re: How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by Zooposki: 11:27am On Nov 22
I will forgive all my enemies when God forgives Satan and his demons, forgives all sinners unconditionally by accepting all to his Kingdom. No place of torment should be reserved for those that offend him. That is the true forgiveness yet to be practiced by God. He should lead by example. No be by mouth.

Unforgiveness hinders fellowship with God and answers to prayers. I think that's the worst that could happen to any believer-Disconnection from God.
Very very dangerous.

Yes, Forgive God.

Many people have said so many things against God. I am a believer, I do everything God wanted but he denied me the cry of children while someone who is an unbeliever now has children littered in her home.

Even Naomi said " Call me Mara, for God has dealt so severely with "


So the last step of forgiveness is to forgive God.
Re: How Dangerous Is Unforgiveness To A Christian? by backbone503(m): 12:55pm On Nov 22
Do to others just what you'll love done to you.

"...forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us...". This was what Christ taught his disciples.

Hmm, no disrespect intended, but were are u getting all this adultrated teachings from?
That God delays a blessing doesnt mean u have been denied that blessing. He makes all things beautiful in His own time not ur time. Stop accusing God for what u didnt get instead praise Him in advance.
You accuse God for something u r not ready for. A blessing isn't a blessing if u cant handle it, its why their is time for everything. The gestation period of mango is different from apple and yet they are both fruits.
Pls God can not faulter, He is supreme and blameless. So stop the heresy, u cant forgive Go

Don't say God has not forgiven Satan bro.

Has Satan asked for forgiveness and read to forsake Evil.

The Devil can never change. There is no place it was written that he asked for forgiveness.

Likewise forgiving your enemies. Yes if they come and ask for forgiveness you have to forgive them. But an enemy who is not ready to change from doing you evil, and keeps doing it. How do you forgive such.

The only way you can show you are a child of God is don't repay with evil and don't wish him or her evil except they are after your life. Then you can change your prayer of forgiveness to a prayer of war.

2 Thessalonians 1:6
Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;


So Forgiveness is good. It is the right thing but when the evil persist and the enemy is not ready to stop going after your life, then it is time for warfare.
