I am happy to announce the release of a major update of my May 1998 article entitled “Love, Mercy, Forgiveness And Chastisement“. This article has now been reworked and expanded into a four-part series and includes a lot of new Scriptures, about 25% new commentary, better formatting, spelling and grammatical corrections and a new series header.
Please don’t confuse this article update with my recent blog post entitled “Love, Mercy and Forgiveness”. While they deal with the same subject matter, the material that is contained in my February 22nd blog entry is only a very small fraction of the information that can be found in this updated series.
If you would like to read this series, please click on the link below. Thanks so much; and may you be blessed by it!
Below is my usual synopsis of the four-part series:
