That is what the church was supposed to be. A respite from this earth. A little piece of heaven on earth. Jesus wanted for his followers to all experience what he had experienced. Why? Because he loved them.

It's about LOVE. Period.

There is an important distinction though. Yes, we are commanded to forgive 70x7. But that does not mean we give up the responsiblity to hold each other accountable.

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. If done in love, the results are wonderful. If done in a condeming or holier than thow way...then the results are usually negative.

Again, this all has to do within the church or amonst Christians. It is not to be applied to nonChristians. A Christians responsibility towards others is to show love, evangelize and be salt and light.
