What Pathlight Offers

The Freedom of Forgiveness

The concept of forgiveness has been long misused and misunderstood. Forgiveness is a process, not typically a discrete event that occurs upon command or solely with the recognition that forgiving is necessary. One cannot forgive on command any more than one can fall in love because someone else demands it. It requires deep introspection and emotional work in order to come to terms with recovery. Without this process, forgiveness fades and resentment begins to bleed into our relationships and other aspects of our lives.

Heaven:  A Scriptural Study

The Bible does not tell us everything about heaven.  Nevertheless, scripture provides a wealth of information that paints a beautiful picture of what is to come. The purpose of this study is to focus on what God’s word reveals to us about heaven with the understanding there are many mysteries that will be made known when His plan is complete. Billy Graham wrote in The Heaven Answer Book, “The Bible doesn’t tell us everything we’d like to know about Heaven, but the Bible does tell us everything we need to know about Heaven while we are here on earth.”
