In the end, God chooses even to forget our sins Jeremiah We experience the benefits of that new covenant only when we acknowledge our sin and put our trust in Christ as our Savior. Therefore, God does not keep a record of our wrongs in that, after he deals with them through the cross, and after we confess and are forgiven, God chooses to look upon us as if we had not sinned.
At first he does keep a record of wrongs, however, calling us to account for what we have done that is contrary to his will. But in the end his mercy triumphs as the record of wrongs is nailed to the cross Colossians When someone has wronged us, there needs to be an accounting for this wrong. The offender needs to acknowledge the offense so that there can be reconciliation. Ignoring or rationalizing or minimizing sin is yet another form of sin, and must be avoided. But, at the same time, if you have been hurt by someone, you cannot let that hurt erect an impenetrable barrier between you and the person who wronged you.

Like God, you need to be instrumental in a process that leads to genuine repentance, forgiveness, and restoration. This, I believe, is what 1 Corinthians would regard as unloving behavior. Believe me, I know this! Often what makes them so messy and confusing is the failure or even unwillingness of involved parties to do what Jesus tells us to do in such a circumstance.
THE BEST FICTION OF 2000
So stay tuned. I believe that each of these points of view has merit, and that we cannot fully understand Can We Find God in the City? Psalm Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. The court system, in a belated attempt to do the right thing, summons black NYC detective Garnell Harris back to his hometown to look into the case with fresh eyes.
As Ruth, Quentin, and Garnell investigate, lots of questions arise that need answering. The biggest--whether Quentin could really be guilty after all.
Meanwhile, Jack sets in motion his own secret plan to put Quentin back behind bars. The question of whether Jack is harassing an innocent man or exacting a father's justice will churn at readers' insides. Record of Wrongs represents a change in direction from the author's creditable Frank Pavlicek series, and Straka may have found his real strength. A few rough spots near the conclusion aren't enough to spoil the suspense in this first-rate thriller.
