Real (biblical) forgiveness

One thought on “Real (biblical) forgiveness”

  1. Bible reading rule #1: A word could mean very different things, depending on: by whom, for what, where, when, why, how the word is being used. Carefully observe what the biblical author may possibly mean. Cross-referencing helps a ton.

    Rule #2: Test each possible interpretation against its real-world consequences.

    Rule #3: The more real-world knowledge you have, the more effective you are at accomplishing #2. For the kinds of subject matter encountered in the Bible, this generally means knowledge of Economics, Psychology, Philosophy, etc.
