Salvation By Forgiveness?

Q. Will The Lord refuse to save us and forgive us until we forgive everyone that has ever sinned against us? Before we ask for salvation, do we have to forgive everyone that has wronged us first before we can receive eternal life?

A. The Lord does not require us to forgive everyone who has sinned against us as a condition for salvation.  We only have to confess that we are a sinner, that we believe Jesus died for our sins and rose again, and ask Him to  to be our savior.

After we’re saved, the Lord expects to extend the same forgiveness to others that He has extended to us.
