i have to be sincere about forgiveness
Amen. It's really good that you know that, for we can just forgive
people intellectually, while still harboring resentment and bitterness
toward them down in our hearts. We must ask God to help us forgive
everyone from our hearts (Matthew 18:35).

Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-4:2), worshipping God (Hebrews 13:15), and
helping the needy (James 1:27), and which encourages everyone in
the congregation not to just sit there as pew potatoes watching a

Because of the increase in wickedness, the love of many Christians
for Jesus and his Holy Bible will grow cold (Matthew 24:12). We must

(Galatians 5:13), and helping the needy (James 1:27).
