In verse 12, God forgives us the debt while we forgive the debtor. In verse
14 we forgive the sin. My question is this:
If a friend steals fifty dollars from me, do I forgive him of the debt, the
sin, or both?
In other words, are we commanded to forgive the debtor of the debt? Or
should we require (expect?) the debtor to repay the debt?
Maybe I should ask it this way: What are the debtors responsibilities in
this forgiveness event (process?) ??
If this is more of a theological question, please reply offlist if that
