Forgive us our sins as we forive those who sin against us" -Luke 11:4
Paul was very clear when he spoke to the followers in the Roman church. He said that 'the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people' for the evil that they were perpetrating on one another. he said in Romans 1:29 'They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. Full of envy, murder strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips..."
They are gossips. Ranked right up there with muderers because they are part of a chain of events and activities to assassinate a person's character.
But, there is a way to clean up these messes. Repent and ask for forgiveness. Join us this week as we look at need for and the process of forgiveness.
