‘For if ye FORGIVE men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also FORGIVE you: But if ye FORGIVE not men their trespasses, neither will your Father FORGIVE your trespasses.’ (Matthew 6:14-15)

The Bible is LITERAL . . . this is why Jesus included, as one of the things important enough to be in our DAILY prayers:

‘And FORGIVE us our debts, as we FORGIVE our debtors.’ (Matthew 6:12)

Let this really sink in. There will be no pleading with God on judgment day . . . no justifying why we did not obey, or did not forgive. To be forgiven, we MUST forgive.
