Pride can create a lot of tension. Sometimes when we are challenged we battle in our hearts to take it, that is pride.

If you forgive and forget never bring it up again.

14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.


If you have bad attitudes and you leave the church you will go to Hell.
