How much can I forgive a guy for cheating, disrespecting me, not considering me?
Viky asks: “How much can I forgive a guy for cheating, disrespect, something that doesn’t count against me? If you say you need to forgive, and he already uses it, considers it a weakness. Where is the line where you have to stop and put a point? Help me to understand.
Peace be with you!
The meaning of forgiveness is that the person changes, gets a second chance from God. If he doesn’t want that chance, he rejects forgiveness himself.
If you are dating to start a family – and the young man is already cheating on wife and actively disrespectful, he is a bad candidate for a husband.
He should be forgiven as a person, but as a future husband, not a relationship.
When the Pharisees came to John the Baptist for baptism in repentance of sins, he answered them thus:
7 But when John saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming to him to be baptized, he said to them, “You products of vipers, who inspired you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 But bear fruits worthy of repentance.
9 And do not say within yourselves, ‘Abraham is our father,’ for I tell you that God is able to raise up children of Abraham from these stones.
10 Already the axe is at the root of the trees: every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Start reading the Gospels and many things will become clearer to you.
