Forgiveness is conditional!
Forgive one another, including yourself, and be forgiven. [“if” is a big word, it is conditional, it places a condition on each of us! We must meet that condition. Matthew 6:14-15; Mark 11:25-26; Luke 6:37; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13; (Matthew 18:21-22 tells us our forgiveness should be limitless. Food for thought: Some find it hard to forgive themselves. Why? God can and does forgive you. Are your standards higher than His? I don’t think so).
We are all sinners, no one is any better than anyone else. What is the result of sin? Thus, we need Him and His offer of forgiveness! Your choice! Ecclesiastes 7:20; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8-10 (Saying you haven't sinned is calling God a liar. Do you want to be in that boat)?
An idol or a ritual thought up by a man can't save you. Jeremiah 3:23;
Jesus is the only way to our heavenly Father! John 10:1, 9, 14:6, 16:23-24; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 5:20; 1 Thessalonians 5:18; Hebrews 7:24-28, 13:15;
Will you be judged for some other persons sin? No way. You reap what you sow!!! Jeremiah 31:29-30; Ezekiel 18:10-17; Galatians 6:7;
Faith is necessary to inherit and keep God's promises! Habakkuk 2:4; Galatians 3:7-9, 14, 29; Hebrews 10:38-39;
Being forgiven is one of the first steps in your journey as a Christian. Then, move forward in that journey by gaining more of His knowledge, wisdom and truth with as much understanding as possible. You accomplish that by studying the entire Bible for yourself; let God speak to you through His word. Obey Him. Be patient.
There is no hope for anyone who does not turn from these worldly lures and plead with Christ for help, in other words, humble themselves and truly repent. Psalm 145:18.

When we hold on to bitterness and anger we are hurting ourselves. When we repent of that and make the hard choice to forgive, we are actually freeing ourselves. I'm not saying you have to be a doormat; true Christians are not wimps.
Make up your own mind. Study His Word as though your life depended on it, and obey the plain teachings of Christ's doctrines.
