How does one show a give forgiveness?   Where does the bible teach that forgiveness is not conditional on there being repentance?
As I am not sure what you are saying I'm presenting both sides to defend:
I wasn't referring to any human movements that have been mentioned. I wasn't referring to forgiveness from God. I was talking about usual things from each other.
Now you can have your tea, coffee, hot chocolate or whatever makes you smile and relax :D

Yes it is a good idea to pray, but what happened to act?

Think, how is it that ver ,50 years homosexualitiy has gone from being illegal to the official view of sexuality.
It happened, not because gays prayed, but because they lived the lifestyle and persuaded people that homosexuality we ok, normal etc etc.

So shouldn't Christians live the Christians life.
Shouldn't Christians be as the bible says' demoliting every idea, worldview etc and making them captive to God.

hi John
thanks for your reply nice to see we can agree on praying but what do you mean by action to live a Christian life is action it shows those outside a better way a loving way Paul had something to say about this in Romans.

Submission to the Authorities
Rom 13:1  Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 
Rom 13:2  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 
Rom 13:3  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 
Rom 13:4  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 
Rom 13:5  Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 
Rom 13:6  For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 
Rom 13:7  Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.      


with this in mind how should we live our lives do we keep the laws of God or the laws of man.

love and Peace
Dave
