They Pay for Forgiveness

A friend told me today that he thinks Christianity is a sham because his father was a Christian. You see, my friend’s dad left the family and took their money, but then said it was ok, because God forgives him.


It was then that I realized who pays the price for what he was forgiven.


His family. Rejecting their heavenly father, maybe forever, because their earth dad was so flippant with his forgiveness.


I wonder if he’d still take his forgiveness so lightly if he knew that.


And then I am suddenly scared of who is quietly paying a price for my lust-driven eyes, my slightly biting comments, and my subtle disregard for unimportant people around me. Those things that I think are minuscule because they will be forgiven.


Probably everyone around me believes a little less when they see that.


I’m really sorry to those of you who have paid the price for a Christian who said they were forgiven. Can you please tell us so that we might change?
