A World Without Forgiveness

Have you ever thought about what a world without forgiveness would look like?  Here are some of my ideas:

  1.  We’d constantly be at war with other nations
  2. Different ethnic groups would be at odds with each other all the time
  3. You think a 50% divorce rate is bad — try 100%!
  4. No more family reunions!
  5. Churches and community organizations would close up — so long to all the good things they do
  6. Parents would abandon their teenagers
  7. Teachers would give up on their students
  8. Sports events would end up in fist fights
  9. We’d all die alone
  10. After death, what would we look forward to?  Everlasting condemnation and separation from God

I wouldn’t want a world like that, would you?
