Let us reason together
Many people remain in lifetime bondage; because others failed to forgive them unconditionally; and give them a second chance. Despite the fact, that many of us are the ones that facilitate their conversion (born again) we still doubt them every minute. Why? Because many are so scared; trying to stay on the safer side; what if he/she is my replica of born again, Long skirt and bigger hat; but deceptive heart. We relate with them; treat them, and even judge them based on the previous information we heard, or know about them. many of us also refuse to support them in transiting from being cheaters, thieves, and whatever that we may know, to excellent and beautiful persons that God has called them to be.
We always assumed that they are still cheating even though they have turned a new leave, what we have stored in our subconscious mind keeps on coming out despite the fact we say we have forgiven them. Can we give God a chance to work in their lives to bring them back to the perfect state He wants them to be, instead of policing each other for our perfectness?
1.The use of personal characteristics or behavior patterns to make generalizations about a person, as in gender profiling.
2.The use of these characteristics to determine whether a person may be engaged in illegal activity, as in racial profiling.
The young man that was murdered in America some time ago met his untimely death because someone made a wrong assumption without a fact. Profiling may also mean being unable to overlook simple issues or forgive someone completely; because of previous information that is known about someone or a group, in other words, someone is paying for what he or she has done in the past; and the world refuses to remove the stigma from him.
Is it possible for a Christian to forgive? Yes!
Note: Sinning against man, and sinning against God are two different things, however, both would get God angry if you violate His will. But, if you are working according to God’s will and instruction, you must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit on how to proceed after you have forgiven, whatever any human beings say about you or the situation at hand would not count against you, if you strictly lean toward the Holy Spirit direction.
For example, If you look at someone called gay and you cursed him or her, that is sinning against God. Why? Because God has not sent you to curse the ones He has paid the total price to redeem, but, to be preaching the message of repentance unto them.
However, whenever you’re teaching the word of God if they think your message of repentance is cursing them let them get over it because you are not the one that wrote the word. Also if you are preaching the message of repentance and people find it irritating, and insulting, in other words, they got angry and labeled you as disrespectful, wicked or any other names, you too need to get over it.
Jesus has paid for it all, we must let all people know about it and pick up their gifts
“Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? up to seven times? Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven! Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a human king who wished to settle accounts with his attendants. When he began the accounting, one was brought to him who owed him 10,000 talents , And because he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and his children and everything that he possessed, and payment to be made. So the attendant fell on his knees, begging him, Have patience with me and I will pay you everything. And his master’s heart was moved with compassion, and he released him and forgave him the debt. But that same attendant, as he went out, found one of his fellow attendants who owed him a hundred denarii ; and he caught him by the throat and said, Pay what you owe! So his fellow attendant fell down and begged him earnestly, Give me time, and I will pay you all! But he was unwilling, and he went out and had him put in prison till he should pay the debt. When his fellow attendants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and told everything that had taken place to their master. Then his master called him and said to him, You contemptible and wicked attendant! I forgave and canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. And should you not have had pity and mercy on your fellow attendant, as I had pity and mercy on you? And in wrath, his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed. So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses. Matthew 18:21-35.
