6 Facts About Nonforgivers

Uprooting Anger

When you’re bitter and refuse to forgive or exude an openness to forgive what do the Scriptures say about you?

  1. You are forgetting the size of the massive sin debt for which God forgave you.
  2. You are declaring that you do not need God’s forgiveness in your life.
  3. You are declaring that you do not need God’s mercy on the day of judgment.
  4. You are assuming God’s role as judge.
  5. You are forgetting the fact that the offender, as a sinner, is in one sense deceived and enslaved by his sin and you lack compassion.
  6. You are forgetting the fact that you, as a sinner, are capable of the same sin and that the same root sin may already reside in you.
