God forgave us by sacrificing his own life, so that, we, who betrayed him may have peace and joy for all eternity. He told us that if we love him we would keep his commandments by loving one another as he has loved us.
Therefore, do we love God, if we:
1) refuse to forgive others as God forgave us?
2) have hate, greed, revenge, pride and lust in our heart?
3) refuse to sacrifice our own interest in order to bring healing to those who hurt and betray us?
4) refuse to stay faithful to our marriage covenant when there is hurt and betrayal?
1)I do my best to forgive others, way beyond any reasonable point. It's not out of loyalty to your god or anything like that. It is quite simply because I've been a right dickwad to people in the past, and was forgiven by them (including one who I threw to the ground for pulling on my jacket, while he already had a concussion, because I was in a horrible downward spiral at the time). The things that got me out of that spiral were love and metal, which was also something that me and the person I love bonded on. I was later forgiven by the person I threw to the ground as well as our circle of friends.
2) We're human. That's all. Again, I do my best to not hate (old me would have hated you, for example, and I forgave the aforementioned girl for cheating on me). Greed is just to make our lives better, and revenge is another human thing. Pride? I don't get it either, sorry.
3) I did. Not all of us are the same, even when they're an atheist Marilyn Manson fanboy.
4) Well, I'm not married, just in an extremely over complicated relationship, but my parents did stay together and work things out and heal. Again, broad sweeping statements don't work.
