73,766 British Pounds - Is that too much to forgive your brother?


Editor's Note:

It's not the 287,315 total stolen pounds that concerns me. It's the 73,766 pounds that remained unpaid and that poor old Mike and Jane are having to sell their home to raise, in their retirement, after Mike's lost his job with the CMPA.

If there are approximately 50,000 Christadelphians in the world, they would each have to  give Mike and Jane only 1.5 pounds each to allow them to stay in their home in their old age.

What on Earth do the Christadelphians think that they are doing?

Don't they think that Mike did enough for them during the ten years that he worked on their behalf?

Did he do wrong? Yes.

Should Christadelphians forgive Mike Ashton? YES they should!

The CMPA should be ashamed of their hypocritical selves. They are not fit to run that organisation. They have no understanding whatsoever of the meaning of the teachings of Christ. They are in open rebellion against his commands and they are mocking his Spirit.

21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

23Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. 24And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. 25But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 27Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owes. 29And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 30And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 31So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. 32Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: 33Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee? 34And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 35So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. - Matthew 18.
