Love is forgiveness, we should forgive people their imperfections, and then our imperfections will be forgiven us. When we forgive, we deserve to be forgiven ourselves, and we have more than enough sins, as you remember.
To love is to forgive, not to forgive is not to love. You don't have to deal with someone who doesn't love you. Therefore, if a person does not forgive you your sins, then you do not need him. What does it mean to forgive sins? Accept a person as they are. Don't try to aggressively change or enslave a person.
You can only love a person if you love yourself. When you love yourself, you accept yourself as you are and forgive yourself for your imperfections. If you forgive yourself, you can forgive others. Otherwise, you will begin to despise the imperfections in other people, elevating yourself above them.
What does it mean to forgive or not to forgive… There is a wild, predatory wolf, and it is not my business to judge it. I can lock him up, I can shoot him, I can chain him up, I can let him go ... but I won't judge him or forgive him. The reasons for my decision regarding the wolf will be purely rational.
Your unwillingness to pay for your sins only increases your suffering. Remember, it is one thing for you to have nothing to pay for your sins, and quite another for your pride to interfere with your repentance. God is merciful and forgives those who have nothing to pay, but those who do not want to pay will be punished terribly.
To the one who asks for forgiveness, say, God is your judge, and I am not a God to judge. Tell him if you want to do good, and if you don't want to, go away. The act of faith is what you do, not what you think, say, or intend to do.
The devil is the one who is perfect and sinless. A person is someone who does not throw stones, someone who is not angry, someone who is honest and knows that he is imperfect. A man can forgive, but the devil can't. The devil is the one who threw a stone at a woman when Jesus said, " if any of you are without sin, first throw a stone at her."
Is there anything more noble and difficult than taking a grip on oneself and repentance?
You say that you're not guilty? - Maybe... However, all of us are more or less guilty of something. It's not difficult to find reasons for repentance. What's difficult is swallowing pride and getting over fears and stupidity.
It's not really necessary to love your enemies, forgive them and play with them. But studying them and finding out their best or strong traits to try to borrow them would be a nice solution. It's a good idea to train with good enemies and become better and more perfect while struggling with them.
It's important to forgive people. People are far from being perfect and are full of sins and weaknesses. For they don't know what they are doing. People are slaves to their desires, passions and their nature. So what to blame them for if they can't even control themselves... It's only what happens now that matters and it's irrational to remember the past. A person could be wrong and mistaken. If one managed to realize one's own mistakes, then one can be forgiven.
A woman can really forgive the man she loves anything at all. As well as a man can forgive the woman he loves for anything. But it doesn't make scandals, screams and mutual reproaches disappear. What's more, it's not even the true reason for a conflict that may kill love but rather heart-to-heart talks it involves.
In the eyes of a woman it's always a man who's to blame for everything. It should be clearly understood. That's why it's useless for a man to justify his actions and prove he's not guilty. A man only needs to admit his faults, apologize and promise he'll never do it again.
In this world of order with perfection as its main idol, one of the measures of happiness is the sense of peace. And guilty conscience together with the feeling jittery that goes with it, destroy the peace and bring pain. And sense of peace is necessary for attaining perfection. While any unnecessary thoughts distract.
Conscience means some inner rules that let a person live in the society. A person who leads a lonely life, doesn't need conscience as there's nothing for it to regulate.
Conscience is the law and breaking it will be punished with fear. In essence, conscience is like inner fear. A person actually feels what is right and what is wrong. And when one feels how bad for the society one's actions may really be, it makes one fear. Subconsciously, this person expects some punishment. This person feels uneasy from the thought that other members of the society do not approve his or her moves. It's necessary to repent to be forgiven.
The power of conscience is so strong that it can easily make a person paranoid.
The main thing that ruins a relationship is not the inability to get along but the absence of the art of living together as well as the ability to love, care and compromise. Even a simple inability to tell the partner what exactly you want from him or her, can ruin more relationships than you can even imagine.
