Are they any limit how much God can forgive people?

Report as

None at all. God can and will forgive ANYTHING (with a single exception of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit) if you go to Him with a truely repentant heart.

Lmao! Its cool to kill a bus load of kids but don't you say any bad words about god! Sorry I couldn't resist...
Report as
It's not okay to kill anyone
Report as
I know I was just commenting on how you can be forgiven for killing but as you indicated not forgiven for blasphemy. Blasphemy can just be words and no offense but I would value one human life over any religion. Muslim, buddhism, christianity, whatever they could all disappear if it would mean a life would be saved.

Haha, I always get amused by the ones who ridicule something they obviously know nothing about.
The unforgivable sin is rejection of the Holy Spirit. People like that usually don't care what they've done.
Report as
Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is to refuse and scorn it to the point where it no longer affects you. In this case, a person never comes to believe and ends up with all the rest of evil.. I'm sure aux will explain better to you.

hahahahaha, i love how you people think that everyone who doesnt believe in santa ..er I mean god is going to hell. Even if this was fairy tail land and god was real do you really think he would send everyone to hell who didn't believe in him regardless of how good of a person they are? Oh of course everyone else who doesn't follow your god is evil right? Unlike you we don't need a book to tell us the difference between right and wrong. That kind of stuff comes natural to normal people but what would you know about that. You know all the other religions are made up but there is no way yours is right? Even though we all have the same ancestors I guess the rest of the world just forgot lmao! I mean its not like it would be that important to remember. That's why isolated jungle tribes know all about your god... oh wait no they don't. Do you honestly think a god, who if existed would be intelligent beyond anything we could understand would be the complete moron your religion makes him out to be? Sacrificing animals? Stoning women to death? Damning all others unlike yourself?? I can tell you now if there is a god and a hell you are all going there because all the worlds religions would be a direct insult to god's intelligence. Don't you dare train your closed minded unintelligent and judgmental point of view at me or anyone else just because we won't waste our lives serving a myth created to explain the origin of life and what happens when you die to people that thought the world was flat. If we listened to you scientists would have been burned at the stake and you would by carving your insulting crap comments on stone.

Actually, Rich, they'd be writing with a quill type pen on parchment. By the time christianity came along the pagans had invented paper.

Wow. -=o

Well, way to prove nothing, Rich. I honestly didn't retain anything I just read and I can't bare to read all of that non-sense again.

Nice rant. You mad bro?

No, however, there are some sins that would show that you were not truly a Christian. (things like blasphemy)

God forgives everyone, as long as you repent. Heavenly Father loves all of us, as being LDS, were his children. When we sin, we repent for our mistakes we've made. God knows were not perfect. Were here on this earth to face challenges, and when we face those challenges, god wants us to know if we still have faith, to conquer them.

According to the Christian religion, as long as your are truly repentant, there is no limit to God's forgiveness.

There is only one thing He will/cannot forgive. That is the rejection of His Son.

I believe there can be some so completely horrible people that God won't let them repent. He didn't let Pharaoh believe. I do believe some are just too evil to repent.
There's also those who think they can party it up now thinking they can ask for forgiveness later. They'll be in for a shock. That's tempting God, He knows our hearts.
The best thing is to repent now and keep from sinning again. If you fall, repent again. But don't ask how many times you can get away with sinning! You might not be able to repent some day.

No, God says in Qur'an:
"O (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

The limit appears to be ours, as men tire of repenting. God is very able to forgive multiple offenses.
How many times can my puppy mess in the living room? Do I finally get exasperated and throw the dog away? Kill it? No, I am a tolerant owner; I forgive the dog instantly and even if I scold it, I never permanently end the relationship.
It's likely something similar with God.

Taking this example a little further, though, would you require the dog to constantly praise you, lest you decide it didn't really accept your gift of forgiveness and toss it to the flaming place?

shiny! Don't own cats!! They don't give a sh*t about their owner...

You continue to make all metaphors wooden. That can be done with any metaphor. It's juvenile

Then try saying a few positive things occasionally. I am often tweaked but I give fairly earned kudos and stars to people, many of whom tweak me. Fair is fair. Being a nudge is not.

So because I haven't thrown up my hands and cried, "Oh Great Shiny! Because of your remarkable wisdom and intellect, and highly convincing proof of magical claims, I shall throw out all the science I've learned and follow you around this nation, thumping people on their heads with my Bible..."

I'm actually a pretty good at commenting; I bring facts, make reasoned arguments, and try to bring rational debate.
I don't mind your not agreeing. But I can applaud people even if I don't agree, if they make a good case. I star them for their effort alone. I leave that as an example for you to consider. If all you want to do is sneer, it's not welcome.
Report as
I have to agree with you on your points. I appreciate your comments, generally, I have noticed you applaud others for even differing opinions, and you tend not to throw fits when others disagree. I don't see what I did as sneering, is all.
Report as
"So because I haven't thrown my hands up and said "oh great shiny..." I took that as a sneer. But admittedly, irony or hyperbole or many other figures of speech don't translate well to online text. As I said, the debate is the thing for me; I make my points, and you make yours. Typically, they are good points, and a welcome addition to the debate. I let the observers decide which of us is more credible; I may think its me, but I often recognize when I've been out-flanked.
Report as
This made me smile. And it certainly depends on the observer...as quantum mechanics shows us...

There is no limit on Gods free grace.

God forgives anyone who asks. He loves us all. Jesus suffered and gave up His life for the forgiveness of as many who will repent and seek forgiveness.

God, bless his little heart, tries so hard to forgive people for anything, but try as he might, he doesn't even exist. Things that don't exist can't do actual things, like forgive others.

There is no limit as to how many times Almighty God will forgive one - as long as one is TRULY repentant. We are born in sin - hard to expect perfection. Psalms 86:5 - states is seeking out those who he can forgive." 2 Corinthians 7:10,11- basically address the sincerity of some seeking forgiveness for their wrong doing for hurting God in contrast with some who are sad from sin due to the punishment, loss, shame, or being exposed. They are often sad with anger and resentment but not due to any hurtful action against God. A very good scripture to contemplate. So, as long as your sin is unintentional and you are not taking God for granted he will forgive you.

None apparently except someone like myself whom can no more feel the holy spirit than sheer empty space, whom denies its existence, who know the truth of the matter and despite gods teary eyed grasp for my salvation, spits on the very idea and ends the delusion with an indelible blaspheme against the holy spirit. What more a suiting response for a nonexistent god to be angry about not believing in its nonexistent buddy. 'Holy' is a meaningless word, and it almost goes without saying that a "holy spirit" is the spirit of lies.

" He who has fled for refuge to a Savior's wounds looks out from his high watch-tower, and limitless forgiveness spreads before him.
This grace proceeds alone from God. All His acts are steeped in heavenly infinity. When then He forgives, He forgives like a God - fully, without measure, without restraining boundary.
Let it be granted that sins overtop the heights of heaven; forgiveness soars unspeakably above their summit. Let sins exceed the sea's innumerable sands; forgiveness outnumbers the total mass."
- Henry Law
