Do you think GOD is forgiveness? What is forgiveness? Certainly this whole thing goes along with the concept of Salvation and our need for a Savior. Now I know that GOD is Love I know that GOD loves justice. What say you about GOD being forgiveness and how does this Forgiveness and Salvation work?

I'm not honestly, 100% sure. I do know that we have been taught or told that God is willing to forgive us of our sins if we ask him to do so and give our life to him.

Yes, Stephcjh We are to ask and that is very important. I believe we are also to Live with the spirit of Jesus the Christ the Great Spirit of GOD in our lives and hearts and minds, we are to be good people helping others and sharing that means we are to be open and honest. I think a good Christian is transparent.

God is everything and this is something that we are taught. However, I do believe that we as humans are responsible for our actions. It is what we call a two way street. God is forgiveness, but we have to commit the action of it through God. You are right in saying that God is love and that God loves justice. At the same time we are in control of our own destiny and the actions of our destiny will be acted upon by God. My response to people is that I forgive them as God forgives them. Great discussion GreatWhiteBuffalo.

Yes, Davebrown You have the understanding of my query. For forgiveness is an action which is nothing in reality, while Love is something like GOD you can not define Love for it is more than an action. Love is something that can not be touched and yet you can feel it, it is something that can be heard but only with discerning ears. Love is hard to fully describe. You can love an object an action or a person. There is much more that I could add and maybe others will jump in and help me out, I can only hope... I know I need help, the kind of help that is a kin to a hand reaching out to another hand. There is no prescription that can feel the need that I have. I can't even fully share with all of the issues, there are so many and they are so entwined around Love and Forgiveness. In the end there really is nothing, there is no value and the trap is the imprisonment and slavery for naught a punishment of the innocent for crimes that were never committed. Deliberate destruction dividing families a wickedness that is beyond sinful. Most often this horrible circumstance is created by other people and the motive is greed and lying is the method and power that allows them to profit or gain an unfair advantage and the victims become poor and meek sick and weak. How can we promote healing? I think Peace can be promoted through accountability and this would be a blessing for individuals and the rest of humanity along with all living things including the Universe.
