Forgiveness Is Like Surgery

Posted by Margaret Foley on

Very few people give Peter credit. In Matthew 18:21-22, Peter asks Jesus how many times a person should forgive their enemy. He suggests seven times. Jesus says seven times seventy-times (or, in some translations, seventy-seven times.) Peter, if anything, is taken aback. Most people write...

Paul summarizes the essence of Christianity in Acts 17:16-32 as he speaks before the meeting of the Areopagus. He begins by introducing the fact that God created the heavens and the earth, which is foundational to our Christian faith. This one simple truth mandates not only the way we relate to...
