In order to comment on this interesting thread, I'm reposting.
It was said "If, with his dying breath, Hitler had asked Jesus for forgiveness, could he have been admitted to Heaven?"
I can understand of course why many people would say "I hope not"
But God is Divine and doesn't think the way we do. But this is complicated. So let's explore..
Keep in mind though, that when a person gets to be so evil like Hitler, it's very unlikely they would even ASK God for forgiveness.
Here's how it works.
God is infinitely good and merciful. Yes he would forgive any person no matter how bad they are. He promises that to us , that's why Jesus died for us sins "For while we were yet sinners, He died for us" Romans...
So yes forgiveness is possible at any time in life.
But it's extremely risky to risk waiting till your death bed.
The human heart gets to be so cold and so evil if it goes unrepentant for too long
the longer it goes unrepentant, the less likely the person would even have the ability to repent.
There have been stories told of atheists who didn't believe in God and at their last moment started screaming "I'm going to hell!"
The harder the heart gets, the more difficult it is to say "Forgive me".
Hitler did not ask God for forgiveness. He was a coward and an evil man.
I agree with "The harder the heart gets, the more difficult it is to say, Forgive me".
but yes if it's about God, He can forgive the person who is asking for forgiveness
no matter how hard the heart gets but the inner of the person knows the reality. there comes a time in life where we come to realize our mistakes. iff a person is not stubborn just a sinner he will bow against God and will ask for forgiveness
and the God as He is the superior, the merciful, the beneficent will forgive the person for sure
SchoolGirlForReal, I am a Muslim
I need your permission to answer this forum question
If you permit me, only then I will speak
as I always avoid things that can create problems for anyone
See this its not about Islam but about Christianity
A reference from Bible
References From the Islamic point of View
The second picture is the name from 99 names of Allah "AL GHAFFAR" means The Great Forgiver
references from both Christianity and Islam
both religions say God forgives
He is merciful, the most beneficient
His mercy is much more Greater than our sins
and He(The God) loves the ones who forgive others
As believers, we need to trust Him, His mercy
sometimes a person can deny his wrong deeds in front of people but deep inside somewhere his inner knows that I am wrong,
maybe the person feels guilty to share his such thoughts with someone else but everyone has that special bond with God, and everyone talks to Him in silence in dark with tears filled in eyes. and He listens to everyone.
He gives and forgives everyone, a true believer puts his trust in God and knows that He will forgive me.
I would just say we should forgive others too as God love those who forgive others
I hope I answered your question well
I relate two different religions because both say the same about God forgiveness, and the intentions are not to hurt anyone's faith
Peace and Blessings
I really don't want to talk about my personal suffering but you misunderstood I dod forgive my mother. This thread was not about her. (As u said on my poetry hub.) My mother lied SAYING my brother tried to make her fall. We believed her. Called police. Then she told them she was surprised.
This is the worst thing she has done.
I'm still really hurt.
In alanon we learn DETACH WITH LOVE.
WE R NOT OBLIGATED TO HAVE CONTACT.
I dont appreciate u telling how to handle my problems.

This question was pulled as a question, so I'm submitting it in the forum instead:If, with his dying breath, Hitler had asked Jesus for forgiveness, could he have been admitted to Heaven?

God says we are to love the person and hate their sin. Can a Christian love them IN their sin?Today many say that all we have to do is love everyone. God says we are to love them and hate their sin. Can we love them in their sin and still please God or are...

We know that we will be better off if we forgive all of those things and and all of those people that have caused us pain....In this thread, ask for or give forgiveness. You don't have to give specific in details if you don't want to.I ask that Christians who have hurt people be forgiven.

The Bible says that all one has to do is ask for forgiveness. Now being that, do you think that Satan might have already asked God for forgiveness? Now before you rattle off scripture.....I don't believe...but I could be wrong....that the Bible has nothing to say on that.

What do you make of John 20:19-23?Most particularly I was working on a sermon on this and this line hit me in a new light, like a ton of bricks: 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”My thoughts are that man can forgive...
