Hello @WithinReason, this is a great topic for discussion, but a 75+ minute video requires more study time that I'm willing to devote to it. Would you consider making a summary of a few of the video's most salient points (in writing) for us here so that we have a basis for discussion other than the video itself?

Thanks :)

~Deut

p.s. - who is the speaker? Thanks again!

Romans 5
8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

11 And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

2Co_5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

It's a good topic to talk about, but I can't help but smile when I see your Screen Name (WithinReason) and then see you posted a 75 minute video for folks to watch..............

Why don't you just start a conversation, and give your thoughts about folks being reconciled to God? Hopefully, something less than 75 minutes?

Well i am listening to the sweet little angels. I doubt that Ill listen to it all. I do believe forgiveness and reconciliation is what He is all about and that we should pay His hearts desire forward.

God's ppl do have a hard time with this, I agree with what He said... as do nonbelievers. Pride, wound and stubbornness (hard heartedness) runnith a muck sometimes.

What we can do is ask His forgiveness for not forgiving as we should and then seek to do better.


I admire those who are willing to forgive and reconcile as it shows growth and humility, it points to God.

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, our Media has been assaulted by the enemy, they were unforgiving, and overran us, and we are saddened, but you can still try to view the material here -
