The straight scoop on 'forgiveness' vs the subterfuge of indulgence .
What is justifiable anger?
What is indulgence?
What is forgiveness?
A much quoted phrase from Jesus sermon on the mount at Matthew the 5th chapter :"turn the other cheek,there's a better world waiting for the meek".."love your enemies".
Jesus also stated in that same sermon,"do not give what is holy to dog's,neither cast your pearls before swine,lest they turn about and rip you open".
Another example of Jesus that the,be indulgent no matter what apologist will use is the case of Jesus forgiving those who nailed him to the cross.He said; "Father,forgive them for they no not what they are doing".
Jesus here is talking about the ignorant Roman soldiers who were just carrying out official orders and didn't know what they were doing".
Know this!This same Jesus went on to eternally damn Judas his apostle.He said "it would have been a finer thing if Judas had not even been born" and condemned him as the "son of destruction"
What about the grievance protocol for reconciling differences at Matthew 18:15?
Jesus outlined the steps to settle differences and stated "if your brother repents you must forgive him".
There lies the key,you cannot grant blanket amnesty (indulgence) to a willful unrepentant perpetrator as they are gonna stab you in the back again first chance they get, and revile you as a dumb ass for letting yourself be suckered.
Because psychopaths and sociopaths are wicked,amoral and cannot change.
Warning Against Adultery
27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap
without his clothes being burned?
28 Can a man walk on hot coals
without his feet being scorched?
29 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife;
no one who touches her will go unpunished.
30 Men do not despise a thief if he steals
to satisfy his hunger when he is starving.
31 Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold,
though it costs him all the wealth of his house.
32 But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment;
whoever does so destroys himself.
33 Blows and disgrace are his lot,
and his shame will never be wiped away;
for jealousy arouses a husband's
fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge.
He will not accept any compensation;
he will refuse the bribe, however great it is.
There you have it God's word say's your gonna fry just for sleeping with someone's mate (adultery)
