    I'll be back.
    Please allow me to help you. The Apostle John tells the Christian that they already have eternal life:
    "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son" (1 Jn.5:11).

    And the Lord Jesus says that those to whom He gives eternal life will never perish:
    "I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand" (Jn.10:28).

    So once a person has received eternal life then he has eternal security and cannot lose his salvation.

    Hopefully, this will help you answer my question.

      Forgiveness and repentance before a God of mercy was Jesus' tradition. The later tradition of a blood sacrifice came later with the Aaonite priestly cult in Moses' time.

      Jesus forgave, saved and healed many long before he died on the cross.

        I want to repeat my appreciation for the topic of this thread

        we must forgive

        we must forgive those who look for passages that might eliminate this requirement

        forgiving is very important
        thanks again to psalmist for this thread

          God is a FAITHFUL and GOOD God. He ENABLES us to forgive when it would have been IMPOSSIBLE to do so in our own strength, amen? And i agree about this thread. Forgiveness is a precious, healing, and glorious thing. To everything there is a "season", amen?

          God bless you brother in Christ and beloved son of the Most High God.

            you may be missing the most important part
            you have to ask for that help
            you have to start with that

                asking God to help you forgive others

                that should have been very clear

                            A believer can not force himself towards good (forgiveness). When I did not want to forgive, I knew it was no good for me, my family, God, but I did not want to forgive I was wounded, my family was wounded. I wanted revenge. God changes hearts. But also he wants us to desire change, to repent. God showed me that I had to forgive before I was destroyed, my family was destroyed. As my mind was convinced (the truth); my heart needed the work that only He could do... He convinced my mind, I sought his healing in my heart (prayer). My will was involved but He did the work. He gets all the credit, all the Glory!

                                The question which I was addressing is in regard to a Christian's fate if he couldn't forgive someone who had seriously harmed his family. No matter how many times He prayed to the Lord for help He just couldn't find the strength to forgive those people.

                                So if he died before He was able to find that forgives would he lose His salvation?

                                Yes or No?
