Blessed are the Merciful

I am always amazed when Christians, who have experienced God’s gracious forgiveness through Jesus, want God to be really nasty to those who have rejected it. They seem to like the doctrine that people who have rejected Jesus will be tortured for eternity.

Fortunately, that ugly doctrine is not true, but why would people who have benefitted so much God’s love and grace want it to be true. Surely people who have received such immense and undeserved generosity from God would be praying, “Please show grace and forgiveness to them too”.

Blessed are the merciful (Matt 18:23-35).
