“There is no doubt that forgiveness is critical to what it means to be a Christian,” Cruz told ABC News correspondent, Paula Faris. “I try to forgive, certainly. As God has forgiven us, we are commanded to do the same.”
Speaking Wednesday, Cruz credited his for helping him let go of any unforgiveness he feels towards Trump, who tweeted numerous personal attacks against the Texan senator and his family. In March of 2016, Trump tweeted a photo disparaging the looks of Cruz’s wife, Heidi. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” he wrote, offering a comparative picture of his wife, Melania, who is a former model. Despite the deeply personal attacks, Sen. Cruz has become an ardent supporter of the President in recent times and insists that he holds no ill will towards the Commander-in-Chief. “There is no doubt that forgiveness is critical to what […]
Biblical Commentary by Unreal Post
Forgiving One Another
The gospel of the grace of God (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 20:24) and the doctrines of grace (Ephesians 3:1-11) revealed to the apostle Paul by the risen Lord clearly demonstrate that all who believe the gospel are forgiven of all their sins; past, present, and future.
The fact that we have been forgiven of all our sins is established in other verses that encourage us to forgive others.
For example, in Colossians 3:13, Paul writes that we should be, ‘bearing with one another, and forgiving one another if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.’
Also in Ephesians 4:32, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Being in Christ, we died with Him, buried with Him, have risen from the dead with Him, and have been forgiven of all our sins.
Senator Ted Cruz demonstrates the Biblical meaning of forgiveness by forgiving President Donald Trump because Christ forgave him.

The Good News
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.
THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
