    Bud, Tresspass=sin, offense, immorality, wickedness, abuse, err, unlawful act, slander, etc; whatever the case may be if we do not forgive them for the transgression, iniquity, the Lord will not forgive us. God will have the final say at the judgment seat, so we had better take care of it, before we get there. .Matthew 6:15, Matt. 18:21 "brother sin against me."
  • Bud
    LU2677; Thanks for the reply but to me there is a difference. Sin; transgression of divine law.
    Trespass; in unlawful act causing injury to person, property or rights of another. In Math: he stated forgiveness against a person not GOD.
  • Insight777
    The Pharisees where about to stone a woman to death for the sin of adultery in John chapter 8. Jesus spoke for the woman and convinced the men to forgive her sin and set her free. By Jewish religious law her punishment for breaking the law of "do not commit adultery" was death but they forgave her the sin of adultery. Men can forgive sin but only by God can the dead be raised back to life.
  • Lu2677
    Bud, I don't know what Insight 777 is saying about it but, Matthew 6:14,15, 18:21, talks about men forgiving other men. It is one of his commandments for his children.
  • Bud
    Insight777: Were did you find that man can forgive sins, I can not find that in my bible. I did find were we can seek forgiveness if we repent of our sins and pray to the LORD for forgiveness.
  • Insight777
