Through the years I have been presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins. That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem them. We can then present to them the "truth in love" even when we have to rebuke them.

|by Ruth Haley Barton |
Reviewed by Gary Gilley
Silence and solitude, as normally understood, play a vital role in the life of a believer. But as outlined and explained in Invitation to Solitude and Silence, silence and solitude are an invitation to a mystical approach to God, not a biblical one.

|The error of the Moral Government view of the atonement|
|by Matt Slick, CARM, 3/18/12 |
The Moral government idea of the atonement where there is no correspondence between sin and legal debts of the law, is clearly on biblical. It denies summary Scriptures and is heretical. Please be aware of the Christ took our place on the cross (Isaiah 53:4-6). He bore our sins in his body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24). He canceled out the legal certificate of debt (Colossians 2:14). In short, he is the one who satisfy the requirements of the law, paid the debt of the law, and gives us his righteousness. This is why the Bible says we are justified (declared legally righteous), by faith ( Romans 5:1). (ACT Note: YWAM was taught this stuff years ago.)
