For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Mat 6:14-15 (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Lk 6:37 Instead of thinking " your no good, you ought to be condemned", think "I forgive you".

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account [settle accounts with WU] of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to [because he couldn't] pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped [kneeled before] him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed [released] him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence [one sixtieth of a talent WU]: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that [what] thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst [begged] me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth [angry], and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto [each of WU] you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses [if you don't each forgive your brother from your hearts for his misdeeds]. Mat 18:21-35. Have mercy on him and "forgive your brother from your heart"; otherwise we will pay the penalty for our sins against God.

Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass [sins] against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him. Lk 17:3-4

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Mat 6:12

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass [sin WU] against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear [listen to] thee, thou hast gained [back] thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more [people WU], that in the mouth [testimony WU] of two or three witnesses every word [matter WU] may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican [tax collector]. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mat 18:15-18 We need to discuss the wrongs we do to each other.

Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought [anything] against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Mat 5:23-24

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Mat 5:22

For he that is not against us is on our part [side]. Mk 9:40 If someone claims to believe in Jesus and shows the fruit in his life of a follower of Jesus, accept him.

And why beholdest thou the mote [speck] that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Mat 7:3-5 First clean up the major character defects of your own before you try to help someone else with their small ones.

Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in [on] the way with him [to court WU]; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Mat 5:25

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again [back] thy sword into his place: for all they that take [hold of WU] the sword shall perish with [by] the sword. Mat 26:52

The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting [testing] him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away [divorce] his wife for every cause [any reason]? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause [reason WU] shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain [two] shall be one flesh? Wherefore [so that] they are no more twain [two], but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder [tear apart]. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away [divorce her]? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered [allowed] you to put away [divorce] your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away [divorce] his wife, except it be for fornication [sexual immorality], and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso [he who] marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. Mat 19:3-9

His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive [accept WU] this saying, save [but only WU] they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of [by] men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him [should] receive it. Mat 19:10-12

But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away [divorce WU] his wife, saving for the cause of fornication [sexual immorality], causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Mat 5:32
