Forgiveness Seems Odd in a Cruel World

Matthew 18

Forgiveness seems like an odd word amidst the devastation of children, sour grapes among fellow “Christians”, and people who think loans are gifts.

I wonder if children will ever have the opportunity to choose Jesus Christ. Already, their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are under the control of the internal government. Besides that, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is increasingly scarce to come by. It’s not surprising that there is more excitement over the one that leaves the crowd to come to Jesus than the whole lot of others. Even trying to live harmoniously with other Christians can be difficult due to being misguided in our thoughts or feelings. The internal government makes war with those who have a testimony for Jesus Christ. I find myself constantly saying to myself, “Just let it go,” “Forget it,” etc. It’s more important to maintain my testimony for Jesus Christ then to cause strife with others. I’ve also learned that if I intend to “loan” anything to someone else to just kiss it goodbye. The human robots, those who live by the mark of the beast, don’t seem to understand the trust-in-lending thing.

We live in a world where basic human decency and the Spirit of Christ are betrayed by the internal government and those who choose to live by the mark of the beast. The final outcome for those who cause children to stumble, or cause strife with those who live for Jesus, or choose cruelty over forgiveness is severe. We who choose Jesus Christ, ” …are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
