Forgiveness vs Repentance. Jan 11, 2007
This is in response to the comments about how forgiveness is a one time deal. This is true...all sin was paid for on the Cross. But Christ's work does not stop at the Cross. He rose from the dead to impart NEW LIFE into every believer...to start from scratch and allow the Holy Spirit to shape us into a "new creation" in Christ. We were "sealed with the Holy Spirit" in restored fellowship with our Creator so that we could learn from Him and become more Christlike. We only learn from conviction from the Holy Spirit, and that requires us to humble ourselves and admit our mistakes. Your are taking the "heart" out of our relationship with Christ and Christianity when you focus on the "technicality" of the Cross. Jesus said "It is finished" at the Cross because payment had been made for all of mankind's sin. But God help the man that thinks that is the end of the story. God is alive...Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father INTERCEDING FOR US. He hears our prayers and wants to mold us into HIS IMAGE. The Bible says for us to "take up our cross daily." That doesn't sound like it's over to me. The label one attaches to that process of humbling ourselves to become more Christlike (forgiveness, repentance) doesn't really matter. It's all about our heart attitude, and if we aren't humbled everyday by how little we can do right on our own, we are totally missing the point. It wasn't over at the Cross; for the believer, it really had only just begun.
The best book on Forgiveness Aug 28, 2006
I'm not big on self help books, but this book really got me. I started reading the first couple of pages just to see what it's about, but couldn't stop. This book is just awesome, really helps you understand forgiveness and the gift to forgive. Since reading this book, I've started working on myself and started noticing how my life started to change. I propably would have still lived in the past and brought my anger with me to the next relationship, but thanks to this book I'm free. I can actually say that after 20 years I am ready to let go and forgive. I'm ready to move on and live a happy life, and the only way to do that is to forgive.
I recommend this book to all my family and friends.
Totally forgiven means no more asking Jan 6, 2005
DR. Stanley makes the same mistake as practically every other Christian and theologian, contradicting himself when he explains that God has forgiven all sins because of Christ, yet when a Christian sins they should ask God for forgiveness. This is simple doubletalk. God is satisfied with Christ's payment for sins, therefore there is no more dealing with sins- it is dealt with. People don't realize that the "Lord's prayer" was given to His Jewish disciples- not Christians. It is more accurately "the Jewish disciples' prayer." There are many verses describing this completeness and finality of the work of the cross- you find it taught after the cross came to pass, not before. When a Christian begins to live in the knowledge that there is no more asking, because forgiveness is total, then and only then does it become more possible to forgive others and go free from grudges and guilt. For more and better teaching on these treasures in the new covenant, read Bob George's "Faith that Pleases God."
Teaches us to forgive ourselves! Jan 12, 2002
This book was given to me by a friend when my daughter died, as I could not forgive myself, my husband, or God; and as time grew so did my bitterness for life and towards others. This book offered me a chance to heal at my own rate, instead of lashing out at others who offered help. I would often make comments, while reading, like, 'Yeah right! Who are you kidding! I have every right to be a -----!' Over time, and upon highlighting and re-reading this book, my heart began to change.
Mr. Charles Stanley is very straight forward and honest in his writing. It seems that he holds nothing back. He offers steps to help us forgive ourselves and others, based on biblical principles and he offers us reassurance and comfort such as, 'Regardless of what you have done, you have not stretched God beyond his limits. His love knows no limits.
