The Depths of His Forgiveness

I heard someone say they were able to forgive people who abused them as a child because of Jesus' amazing forgiveness for us.

That sounds amazing until you think that "depth of forgiveness" implies depth of hurt. If Jesus' forgiveness is so amazing that pictures Him being as hurt by our sins as we would be by someone who abused us as a child.

That is a petty, sad, sick picture of Jesus. It claims that the littlest thing we would do to Him, who we cannot even see, hurts Him so deeply in His holiness that it is as if we'd raped Him repeatedly.

That just makes Him out to be a self-centered drama queen idiot, at best! Which of course the real Jesus is not.

2 Corinthians 5:19 says, "God no longer holds the world's sins against them." God is love & 1 Corinthians 13:5 says, "Love does not take into account wrongs suffered."

Learn more about the real biblical meaning of forgiveness from this post:  God NEVER Forgave You


  1. What about Eph 4:32 - and be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you. King James Version Forgiving frees someone from their past hurts. Iam not getting your point. Jesus wants us free, that is why we forgive. Jesus is our example of love and forgiveness. Do you not helieve that we needed to be forgiven?

    1. We didn't need to be forgiven by God. If we did then God was saving us from himself. God saved us from sin & death. Death is his enemy.

      I think the page I link to at the end of the post clears things up as to what biblical forgiveness is in the Old & New Testaments, here is the link again
