You remain unrepentant in the church age? You will not be rewarded. You will be kept out until you learn a lesson.
You remain unforgiving though the other party apologized?
The offender may go into the kingdom and the offended will be kept out, until he learns a lesson.

This is how narrow is the way that leads to life.
No two Christians who have a problem of offended-ness between them will both enter into the kingdom to come. Either one will enter and the other will be kept out or both will be kept out.
I'm going to say it again. Then I'm going to prove it from Scripture.

See again below.
"Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there you remember that your brother has something against you,
Leave your gift there before the altar, and first go and be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
Be well disposed quickly toward your opponent at law, while you are with him on the way, lest the opponent deliver you to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
Truly I say to you, You shall by no means come out from there until you pay the last quadrans." (Matt. 5:23-26)

'Offence' is the act of encouraging others to sin.
There are several posters here who make it clear to others that those who continue with sin is condemned by Jesus Christ and that a life of sin will not inherit the Kingdom of God. You know who they are. This the doctrine of Jesus, Paul and all the Apostles.

Insult and offend are two different things.
You offend by encouraging sin. Your doctrine leads to damnation.

Then you admit to being offensive and derogatory.
The odd thing is though, is that while you accuse the Christians in this forum of "condemning the commandments of Christ", there's not a single instance anywhere in this forum where any Christian has ever "condemned the commandments of Christ".
That makes you a Pharisaical and hypocritical imposter.

Those are derogatory statements

Pay attention. Those are terms I have used to describe YOU, and not those that are actually following Christ.
YOU have filled the pages of this forum with the hatred that fills your heart against the church of God, as represented by the Christians posting in this forum, with contempt.
You are nothing like Jesus.
