We don't need to memorise that verse as an OT law, but it is an eye opener when we ask 'what Christian can't forgive'?The other thing I see is flat out denial of scripture. A common one in my mind is Matthew 6:15, which states that if we do not forgive others, then God will not forgive us. I have been told on several occasions that this was irrelevant, because it was "before Jesus died". So in essence is this to mean that we no longer have to forgive anyone? I think not.
Anyway, that sums up what I have been seeing lately and I wondered if I was alone, I welcome any thoughts & discussion- it would be much appreciated.
These days are definitely more evil. Evil is rubbing off on the best of us. We can't say someone is not a Christian because they have layers of dirt on them. We need to look deeper. We are all going from glory to glory. If we neglect fellowship with the saints we get dirty. We need to exhort / wash one another.
In my books, if the only 'ambassadorial stand' made is to not deny Christ as the only Messiah and Son of God before others, you are a Christian! Look at how '''Christians''' who live in an extremity of sin condone any other belief. They can't make a stand on and for the truth. They will not stand alone in the firing line.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
