Six Powerful Bible Verses About God’s Forgiveness

When people think of God, one of the first things they think about is forgiveness, so here are 6 of the most powerful Bible verses about forgiveness, offered only through Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Since we’ve been forgiven so much, it stands to reason that it’s important that we learn or choose to forgive others, so maybe these Bible verses about God’s forgiveness will help us to be able to forgive others more easily. In the Book of 1 John, we read about the fact that we are all sinners. The Apostle John mentions our cleansing of sins, but this verse (1 John 1:9) is placed just before and after a clear statement about us being sinners, and that “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8), and again, “If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” (1 John 1:10), so the first point of being forgiven is acknowledging the fact that we are sinners in need of forgiveness. If someone claims to not be a sinner, then they have just called God a liar. Not a very tenable position to be in.

Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.

The forgiveness or cleansing that John wrote about (1 John 1:9) is only possible because of the redemption we receive through the blood of Christ. We are not redeemed by doing anything “but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot” (1 Peter 1:19). This is the very reason Jesus came. He said that, “even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Isaiah the Prophet wrote, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool” (Isaiah 1:18), so here is the very righteousness of Christ offered to all who come to Him and put their trust in the Son of God.

Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

It may not be as much of a statement that if you don’t forgive others, you won’t be forgiven, but rather, if you are forgiven by God, you should naturally want forgive others because you’ve been forgiven infinitely more than we could ever forgive others for. It doesn’t seem natural for a believer to be forgiven and then not forgive others. If we are not confessing our sins and being cleansed from all unrighteousness, we may not care about forgiving others. That’s why it’s important to confess sin right away and not let sin go unconfessed. God already knows it anyway, even if no one else does. The person who cannot forgive others may have to question whether they’ve been forgiven or not.Praying-in-Church

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

It’s difficult to be kind to one another, having a tender heart, and forgiving of one another if we don’t recognize the magnitude of our own sins and just how much we’ve been forgiven. The Apostle Paul writes in Colossians 3:13 that we are to be “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.” Notice it said “you also must forgive,” as if it’s conditional. If we properly understand how much we’ve been forgiven, it should be easier for us to recognize how much “God in Christ forgave” us.

Luke 6:35-36 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

One of the most difficult things we can ever do as human beings is to love those who hate us and pray for those who persecute us, but that’s just what we’re called to do. Remember that “The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels” (Rev 3:5), so this means we should forgive others who mean us harm. The mercy that we receive should be the mercy we extend to others because He was merciful to us. Since “we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life” (Rom 5:9).

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 is perhaps the best known of all Bible verses and it is powerful indeed, but to complete this thought, John continues by stating that “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him” (John 3:17), so neither should we be condemning others. It is Christ Who will judge, not us, but after this gracious verse (John 3:16) and the statement about not being condemned, Jesus is not finished, as He adds a warning that “whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God” (John 3:18). Its one thing to quote John 3:16, but it should be in the context of John 3:17-18. God’s mercy is not as relevant until God’s wrath is revealed.

Conclusion

It’s not easy to forgive others, but neither is it for others to forgive us, but God’s forgiven us, so we must do the same for others. When we compare just how much we’ve been forgiven and the things that we must forgive others for, then we can understand that our forgiveness of others is incomparable to that which we have been forgiven. The saints of God “have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” (Rev 7:14), so how can we not forgive others who have sinned against us? Why not share these top 6 Bible verses about God’s forgiveness, so that others can know how much God has forgiven them, and why it’s necessary that we forgive others.

    But what about your “gods” forgiveness here? Where’s the “forgiveness” jack?

    Fatalities Crime Method used Biblical reference
    20 million (estimated). People being evil. Drowning. Genesis 6:7
    The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (population of Sodom estimated to be 600-1200, Gomorrah presumably would be similar). According to Genesis: Being evil and wanting to rape two angels (who visited Sodom in the form of men).
    According to Ezekiel (depending on translation): Being prideful (arrogant), overfed and unconcerned (having an abundance of idleness); neglecting the poor and needy; being haughty and committing abominations before God.
    The passage suggests that a mob were interested in homosexual rape in respect of the angels. Lot – the only example of a good man in the city – offered them his virgin daughters instead, but the mob were not interested.

    Burnt to death by fire and a rain of burning sulfur. Genesis 19:4-5
    Ezekiel 16:46-47 (specifically Ezekiel 16:49-50)
    Lot’s wife. Pausing to look back at the spectacle of God destroying entire cities, including her own residence and all her possessions, in a massive conflagration of fire and brimstone. Transformed into a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26
    Er, the firstborn of Judah. Being “wicked in the sight of the Lord” Not specified Genesis 38:7
    Onan (Er’s brother and apparent inventor of onanism) Disobeying God’s orders to impregnate his dead brother’s wife (or “spilling his seed”). Not specified Genesis 38:9-10 (unlucky family)
    The firstborn of Egypt. Being firstborn when God decided to show his strength. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart so he refused to let the Israelites go. The Angel of Death. Exodus 12:29 (Rather tough on the kids who really had nothing to do with it.)
    The Egyptian army. Refusing to disobey orders to pursue the Israelites fleeing through the Red Sea, which was parted with walls of water on both sides of the path. Drowned when the seawater returned. Exodus 14:28 God kills you or the boss kills you.
    Nadab and Abihu, sons of Aaron. Offering strange fire before the Lord. Burnt to death Leviticus 10:1-3 If you don’t get the ritual right then death is the result.
    Undisclosed number of Israelites. Complaining against God Fire Numbers 11:1-3
    Undisclosed number of Israelites. Complaining about the food and wanting to go back to Egypt for an easier life. Plague Numbers 11:4-35
    Ten scouts sent to explore the promised land Spreading bad reports about this land containing giants, and being too difficult to conquer. Plague Numbers 14:36-38. If you don’t give the answer the boss wants then you’re in big trouble.
    Korah, Dathan, Abiram and their respective families. Claiming to be as holy as Moses and Aaron. The earth opened up and swallowed them – burying them alive. Numbers 16:27-32, which implies the children were killed, but Numbers 26:11 states Korah’s children survived.
    250 Israelites. Followers of Korah (see above) Burnt to death by fire from God. Numbers 16:35
    14,700 Israelites. Complaining about the previous two loving assassinations concerning Korah. Plague Numbers 16:49 (The management thanks you for your feedback. Now die!)
    Undisclosed number of Israelites. Despairing, and complaining about the quality of bread. Being bitten to death by divinely summoned fiery serpents, although casting a bronze snake and looking upon it would prevent them from dying. Numbers 21:4-9 (Honestly, wouldn’t it be cool just to try this to see it happen? C’mon, I dare ya…)
    24,000 Israelites Sexual immorality with Moabite women and worshiping Baal. Plague. Numbers 25:9 (Proving once more that despite God being obviously real and very jealous, Israelites would worship a sandwich if Moses so much as popped out to buy a newspaper.)
    Undisclosed number of Ammorites Waging war against Israel, trying to protect themselves and their families from the holy slaughter that the Israelites regularly inflicted on their enemies Sending hailstones from Heaven Joshua 10:10-11
    Either 70 or 50,070 Israelites (dependent on how the inerrant Bible is translated). Looking into the Ark of the Covenant (Like the ending of Indiana Jones: Raiders of The Lost Ark). Not specified 1 Samuel 6:19 (You would have thought the 50,070th Israelite would have more sense than to climb a mountain of 50,069 bodies and look into a box)
    Nabal. David refrained from murdering Nabal’s servants or stealing from him. He expected his kindness to be repaid in the form of gifts from Nabal, but Nabal declined. God killed Nabal before David had the chance to go “avenging thyself with thine own hand.” Not specified 1 Samuel 25:38 (This was quite convenient as David, an avid collector of wives, got to marry Nabal’s wife who was quite hot.)
    Uzzah. Touching the Ark while trying to prevent it from tipping over. Not specified. 2 Samuel 6:6-7 (Which seems grossly unfair – should he have just let it fall to the ground and be broken?)
    David and Bathsheba’s baby boy. None. The baby was killed in order to punish David for his adultery with Bathsheba and subsequently arranging the death of her husband Uriah. Not specified 2 Samuel 12:14-18 (The life of a baby is sacred, as explained by Christians, but it’s worth squat when God is angry with the parents.)
    70,000 assorted Israelites Inspired by either God, or perhaps Satan – the Bible is a tad unclear – David took a census of his lands and people. Plague 2 Samuel 24:13 , despite being told to by God in 2 Samuel 24:1. (Unless you read 1 Chronicles 21:1, where the devil did it)
    An unnamed prophet The prophet had been told by God to not eat bread, but another guy claimed he too was a prophet, and that God had commanded him to bring the prophet home for some food. Eaten by lions 1 Kings 13:1-24 (That’s what happens when you follow the advice of self-proclaimed prophets.)
    Jeroboam’s son. None. Child killed to punish Jeroboam, to save him from a massacre God was planning for the rest of Jeroboam’s family, and possibly also as a sign used to confirm a prophecy. Not specified. Died in his mother’s arms. 1 Kings 14:10-18 (God euthanizes a child to save him from the terrors of…His own wrath?)
    An unnamed man Refusal to strike a prophet when ordered to do so by the prophet in question. Killed by a lion (God really enjoys using Lions in Kings). 1 Kings 20:35-36 (Weird or what?)
    King Ahaziah Seeking medical advice from a rival god, and Baal worship. Died in bed while recovering from an earlier fall. 1 Kings 22:51 and 2 Kings 1:16 (Baal must have been pretty good to compete with a Yahweh: the God who would incinerate your children.)
    102 soldiers Being impolite to Elijah and serving King Ahziah. (Although they would have attempted to remove Elijah by force/kill him for not obeying Ahaziah had God not intervened) Burnt to death. 2 Kings 1:9-12 (This verse is worth reading, since it’s almost comical the way in which the soldiers queue up to be incinerated.)
    42 youths. They mocked Elisha’s bald head. No kidding – God sends 2 she-bears to maul them to death. 2 Kings 2:23-24 (Evidently there weren’t any lions to hand).[3]
    Some foreigners. Not worshiping God Killed by lions 2 Kings 17:25-26 (“Death by lion” crops up with suspicious frequency. Did the author of Kings have some kind of lion-phobia?)
    185,000 soldiers. Being at war with Israel Killed by the angel of the Lord while they slept. 2 Kings 19:35
    Jeroboam. Rebelling against Abijah, the king of Israel based on dependence from David. Not specified 2 Chronicles 13:20
    Jehoram. Doing evil in the sight of the Lord. Stricken by a disease that caused his bowels to fall out. 2 Chronicles 21:14-19 (Nasty way to go.)
    Ezekiel’s wife. Literally nothing. God just wanted to make a point. Unknown. Ezekiel 24:15-18

    “Six Powerful Bible Verses About God’s Forgiveness”

    Six Powerful Bible Verses About God’s Immoral Cruelty:

    1) Genesis 17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

    Punish a child for the actions of his parents? That’s not justice.

    2) Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

    Punish people for something their ancestors did four generations ago? That is not justice.

    3) Deuteronomy 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.

    Punish someone because ten generations ago an ancestor was born out of wedlock? That is not justice.

    4) Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

    One woman sins ( and sinned without knowing she was doing anything wrong because she had no knowledge of good and evil) and because she sinned inadvertently all women must suffer? That is not justice.

    5) Exodus 21:7 When a man sells his daughter as a slave….

    God instructs that it is OK for a man to sell his daughter into slavery? That is not moral.

    6) 2 Samuel 12:11-14 Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’
    Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Nathan answered David: “The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die.” [The child dies seven days later.]

    A man ( David) sins & god decides the correct punishment for David’s sin is to have David’s wives publicly raped? And when David repents god forgives him & instead of having David’s wives publicly raped god kills David’s son? That is not justice.

      Nice cherry picking my friend.

      • C_Alan_Nault

        I was following your lead. Or do you think that when you title an article “six powerful Bible verses about god’s forgiveness” you are NOT cherry picking those six verses?

        Did you write the title of the article & open the Bible at random& copied the first six verses you found?

        • pud

          Don’t expect any rational reply to that! lol

          • C_Alan_Nault

            Well, when it comes to religion you can’t expect rational thought. Calling it cherry picking was a very clumsy attempt to dismiss my comments.

            I wonder why Jack didn’t explain why the passages I posted were good passages about a loving god…..

          • pud

            Jack will never accept a challenge. He will never address your comments for obvious reasons. He makes his living peddling this slop and lying to children so his entire being is invested in his cult. For him to ever do anything other than mindlessly repeat the party line to the exclusion of all reason and evidence would mean the end of him.

      • pud

        Is there anyone on these religious pages that is more dishonest, irrational and myopic as you jack? I don’t think so. You dodge EVERY challenge, skirt every contradiction and cower whenever I call you out for open debate. “Nault” PROVES that you are a cherry picker and you can’t see the log in your own eye! LOL

      If you enjoy being outraged by Christianity, I recommend these two episodes of David Wilkerson:

      First,
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv35GpcZqxc
      on how God sends messages sometimes;
      Then,
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vZwn9Vfn2g&t=4s
      on what happens when we do not listen.

      I will be fascinated if you can tolerate these. They are totally not your perspective.

      They say everyone is entitled to their opinion. That is rubbish. No one is entitled to an opinion they have not worked for.

      It seems you have not done the necessary work to see these verses in their Biblical context.

      Biblically, your verses are not about justice. At a stretch, they theme around what it takes to properly respect God. That is where we human beings come unstuck.

      • C_Alan_Nault

        “It seems you have not done the necessary work to see these verses in their Biblical context.”

        No one has been able to present any context where it is just to punish a person for someone else’s crime/sin.

        No one has been able to present any context where it is moral to own another person as property.

        • Jean Camille

          How culture-bound can you be? You miss the point entirely with those mindless platitudes.

          Jack wrote his article to encourage fellow believers to be better people. You came back with a hotch-potch bag of quotes to justify your grizzle-guts attitude—completely off topic.

          And what is this fixation with justice and punishment? Your assortment of quotes has nothing to do with that. Do you really believe you can gain insight from imposing your frame of reference on another’s thoughts?

          If anything, your quotes relate to the consequences of our disgustingly insulting attitude towards God. Example: If I insult my boss and berate the landlord, my children will end up destitute on the street. The children suffer the consequences of my action regardless of their own behaviour. This has nothing to do with justice or punishment.

          While none of us wants slavery, the reality was more nuanced than you suggest. Globally, the alternative was often death; some slaves declined to leave their masters; and, in ancient Rome, some military generals had to court the favour of influential slaves in the imperial court.

          Please do something to break out of your philosophical and cultural cocoon.

          • C_Alan_Nault

            “You miss the point entirely with those mindless platitudes.”

            You think the Bible is mindless platitudes?

            “Jack wrote his article to encourage fellow believers to be better people.

            Oh? Belief that you have been forgiven by a god that no one is able to prove exists makes someone a better person?

            “You came back with a hotch-potch bag of quotes to justify your grizzle-guts attitude—completely off topic.”

            You miss the point entirely. Jack picked six Bible passages and claimed the passages show that god is forgiving.

            I picked six Bible passages to show that god punishes people for the sins of others.

            Don’t blame me if the Bible is full of self-contradictory passages.

            Unless Jack can explain how ( according to what the Bible says) god is forgiving and also punishes people for the sins of others, this god ( according to the Bible) appears to be bipolar.

          • Jean Camille

            My comment on “mindless platitudes” referred to your catch-phrases starting, “No one has been able to present …”

            If you still imagine “a god that no one is able to prove exists,” then you are an outsider on this website. They are not using your terms of reference. To make a meaningful comment, you have to know their working assumptions. So far, you show no sign of understanding their perspective.

            “I picked six Bible passages to show that god punishes people for the sins of others.”

            WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. It feels like I am talking to a brick wall here. I went to the trouble of giving you an example of how such quotes are NOT about punishment and you did not bother even to respond. That is just plain rudeness.

            Also, it shows you are breaking a basic rule of comprehension. It may be that in YOUR world, such matters would be about punishment. Not so in the Biblical world, and if you did your research, you would know that. Until you become properly informed, you are not qualified to be taken seriously.

            Let me share with you one of my favourite “self-contradictory passages,” Proverbs 26:4-5 (NIV).

            4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
            or you yourself will be just like him.
            5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
            or he will be wise in his own eyes.

            For our own wellbeing, sometimes it is better to avoid fruitless debate and definitely do not let a non-believer set the terms.

            Other times, it is good to meet people where they are at and help them come to a more realistic appreciation of their situation.

            The sequence of these is important. First, we are responsible for keeping our own integrity; after that,we can help others improve their perspective on life.

            And that is why Jack definitely should NOT explain anything to you, until you have demonstrated a serious interest by doing your homework.

          • pud

            LOL…the “perfect word”

          • C_Alan_Nault

            “I went to the trouble of giving you an example of how such quotes are NOT about punishment.”

            Explain how the following passages are NOT about punishment:

            Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children

            ( how is making ALL women’s someone’s sorrow worse and causing ALL women pain during childbirth because of what one woman did NOT punishment?)

            Genesis 17:14 Any uncircumcised male whose flesh of his foreskin remains uncircumcised will be cut off from his people. He has broken my covenant.

            ( how is isolating someone from his people because his parents did not circumcise him NOT punishment? )

            Exodus 20:5 Do not bow down to them or worship them, because I, the Lord your God, am a passionate God. I punish children for their parents’ sins even to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me.

            ( how is a passage that SPECIFICALLY STATES god will punish people( because of something an ancestor did 3 or 4 generations ago)NOT punishment?)

            Deuteronomy 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.

            ( how is forbidding someone — whose ancestor ten generations ago was born out of wedlock– from entering the temple Not punishment?)

            2 Samuel 12:11-14 These passages tell us that David sinned & god decides the proper way to punish David for his sin is to have David’s wives publicly raped by his neighbors.

            David repents & god forgives him so instead of having David’s wives publicly raped,god kills David’s child.

            ( how are these( the ordered rape & the death of a child) NOT punishment?)

            I’ll also point out that the people being punished in these passages are not even the people that sinned. How is that just?

            “While none of us wants slavery, the reality was more nuanced than you suggest. Globally, the alternative was often death; some slaves declined to leave their masters; and, in ancient Rome, some military generals had to court the favour of influential slaves in the imperial court.”

            I am not talking about the history of slavery around the globe..I know you would prefer to move the topic there,but I am not going to play your game.

            I am talking about what the Bible specifically says about slavery.

            Why would a god that took such care to present detailed instructions on what to eat & what not to eat, what you cannot wear, how to trim hair & beards, what actions are sins,hand down 613 commandments ( there aren’t just 10) NOT think to say “oh yeah guys, slavery is wrong”…. or at least say “slavery should be avoided”?

            Instead, god hands down detailed instructions on buying,selling,& keeping people as property and instructions on treatment of slaves ( you can beat them and as long as they don’t die from the beating for a day or two you face no punishment because the slave was your property).

            “Until you become properly informed,”

            Bible apologist speak for “Until you either stop pointing out the terrible Bible passages that show god’s cruelty and injustice or accept that even though those passages may clearly state god is cruel& unjust but if you interpret them the way we want you to”

            “Let me share with you one of my favourite “self-contradictory passages,” Proverbs 26:4-5 (NIV).”

            If you are going to post Bible passages about fools,don’t forget this Bible passage that tells you to become a fool.

            1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

            ( can you explain how becoming a fool makes you wise?)

          • Jean Camille

            I like your passion, and at the same time, I have no sense that you recognize what I mean so far. I am not into fruitless disputes.

            The issues you raise were settled long ago for me. Yet you pursue matters with a level of detail that would make them worth revisiting.

            So, are you willing to have a genuine discussion where we explore the texts together?
