    Forgiving Others

    If we want to be at peace with God and others, then we must learn to forgive others. An unforgiving attitude can lead to a person’s ruin.

    1. Circle key words and phrases in the following Scriptures.

    Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are
    doing.”
    LUKE 23:34

    Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
    MATTHEW 18:21–22

    Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
    LUKE 6:37

    And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
    MARK 11:25

    * Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
    EPHESIANS 4:32

    Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
    COLOSSIANS 3:13

    2. What do we learn about forgiving others in (answer briefly):

    Luke 23:34
    Mark 11:25
    Matthew 18:21–22

    Does this mean that if I don't send anybody to hell, God won't send me to hell?

    From this, can we conclude that Galileo must have condemned somebody, since he himself was condemned?

    First off you need to look at the hole verse and also verse 38.

    A forgiving spirit demonstrates that a person has received God's forgiveness. Jesus uses the picture of measuring grain in a basket to ensure the full amount. If we are critical rather than compassionate, we will also receive criticism. If we treat others generously, graciously, and compassionately, however, these qualities will come back to us in full measure. We are to love others, not judge them. And when you witness to a lost person and show them their sins you are not judging them you are helping them.
