That Is Not the Way It Is Supposed to Be

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you Matthew 5:23 New King James Version                                                                                                                             

Do you notice that Jesus mentions that if your brother has a grievance with you, you are to make your peace with him?                                                                                 

He does not say that if you have a grievance against your brother.                                     

Too many Christians believe that they must forgive their brothers when they do bad things to them before their offering can be acceptable to God.                                                         

So let us say a brother has cheated you out of a lot of money, do you seriously believe that God wants you to forgive him his dept to you if he has the means to repay you before your offering will be acceptable to God?                                                

To me that is a very dangerous and misguided theology.                                              

Prayer: Please Jehovah grant me the wisdom to discern how to handle a problem between a  brother or sister who is indebted to me but refuses to pay his obligations even though they have the means to do so. I sincerely beseech this request in the name of He who taught Nichodemous to repay those to whom he was indebted to Jesus Christ. Amen                                           

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
