Pastor Dwain Forgiveness

Defining forgiveness:

1.  Forgiveness is showing a person mercy:

They deserve punishment

They deserve hatred

They deserve rejection

They might deserve criticsm and distain

Forgiveness and mercy is that higher way that releaves your heart and keeps your heart from getting all jammed up with heart stopping plaque.

Forgiveness is releasing a debtor from payment on a debt.

Matthew 6:9-11


3.  In forgiveness there are two issues to deal with;  the debtor and the debt
