When I hear too often the mostly poor Biblical theology coming out of many person’s mouth even these days, I know that they are clearly not only ignorant of God’s words in the Bible, and they have not been mediating on it as well but I also tend to know they are still not Holy Spirit filled or led too.
Anyone Forgiving someone does still not tend to remove possible negative consequences upon that persons, for after all they still need to ask for and accept God’s forgiveness and resulting positive consequences.. God tends to forgive but that does not mean he still may no prescribe some appropriate negative pushiest, consequences as a deterrent to stop from sinning again too.. for those who God loves

“there’s no one answer to abuse…..here is one that helps you till God deals with the other person.. he often takes them away from you, and some even die early
I know my life changed and the violence went out of it when I met Jesus, the lover of my soul. I was different. I am different. I am changing day by day – more into His likeness – and less like the world patterned me. Less like the one all the bad decisions made me. More like someone you could trust and respect.
Here’s a study to show you how to live in such a way abuse is not in the picture. I did this study many years ago, and it is still motivating. It is still the best guage for behavior no one is ashamed of – it’s what Jesus wants to find in us. He is the only one who can change us – take advantage of that fact. He will help you.
In the meantime, I grieve for you who are hurting – and I’m praying for you to meet the Savior.
