Freely forgiving: conditional vs. unconditional repentance
Been thinking lately about forgiveness. So often, people do not apologize for their wrongs. Some say forgiveness from the offended should be unconditional on repentance/apologizing. Some other Christians say forgiveness is conditional upon repentance/apologizing. Which one is Biblical? These are both contradictory (only one is correct according to God). I want to be that person that freely forgives. I don’t want to be unforgiving. Does God forgive without repentance? What does this parable suggest?
I want to err on the side of mercy.
