Sharing The Gospel

Carbon12 created this platform so that Pastors across the world will be able to share the gospel to the masses through technology. These letters are the thoughts of a pastor, the experiences of a pastor, and the heart of a pastor. Each Pastor represents a congregation or an organization and is encouraged to promote how we can help them grow the Kingdom of God.

Peter 5:2-4
Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

God’s Forgiveness is Conditional

September 6, 2022

There is a difference between God and the Christian in the matter of forgiveness. Let me try to explain my thoughts. Let’s look at a pertinent passage:

Mark 11:25:
And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

Here is God asking us to unconditionally forgive someone their sins against us, in other words, without their repentance, confession, and contrition. Yet at the same time stating that His forgiveness of us is conditional, based on our forgiving others.
