One thought on “Forgiveness and freedom

  1. In dem Artikel wird die für die Christliche Wissenschaft so typische Frage gestellt:
    How can we free ourselves from the negative emotions that rob us of happiness and the ability to move on and interact charitably with others?
    Und die Antwort:
    If we feel condemned or hurt, we, too, can know there’s no need for bitterness or retaliation. God’s love provides a buffer against harmful actions or words. They can have no effect; they are like water rolling off a duck’s back. Christ Jesus demonstrated that the way to experience “Love triumphant” is to steadfastly express God’s love.

    Wenn wir diese Wahrheit erkennen und leben, wird sie uns frei machen (vgl. Johannes 8:32).
