Elder Samson Sievers on Forgiveness

Elder Samson Sievers of Russia

The drunkard, the fornicator, the proud – he will receive God’s mercy. But he who does not want to forgive, to excuse, to justify consciously, intentionally … that person closes himself to eternal life before God, and even more so in the present life. He is turned away and not heard.

* This excerpt is from “Christ the Eternal Tao” by Hieromonk Damascene Christensen
