Forgiveness For A Penitent Man

2 Cor.2:5 But if any have caused grief,he hath not grieved me, but in part:that I may not overcharge you all.

6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.

7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with over much sorrow.

We must understand Paul's feeling's for all we have to do is look back from where he came from.

He had basically tried to destroy the Church when he was called Saul.

He had held the coats of the ones that stoned Stephen he would compel them to be forgiving.

verse 8 Wherefore I beseech you that you would confirm your Love toward him!

9 For this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, wether ye be obedient in all things.

Now did Paul say in some things or just the things we think is how we understand them or is it the way the Lord understands it.

Verse 10 To whom ye forgive anything , I forgive also for if I forgave anything, to whom I forgave it.

for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ. Now be very very sure of the next verse.

11 Least Satan get an advantage of us for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Listen Brothers and Sisters in Christ if we let our selves be throw about by all kinds of Doctrines.

Do we not know our Lord told us there would be a falling away from the Church in the Last days!

Be very very careful deception is like a little leaven.

Do you know how many times our Lord gave the example of a little leaven. He or She that hath a ear to hear. Amen
