I got to thinking about forgiving this morning. I have a couple people who I have not forgiven. Ok...more than a couple. But here is my confusion, I have heard over and over that god forgives us the moment we ask. I have heard and read this from popular pastors as well as in my own church. But I have also heard that we have to forgive others in order to be forgiven ourselves. "Forgive those who trespass against as you forgive our trespasses" right? Please don't beat me up if I don't have that exactly right.
So my question is, if I ask god to forgive me for some sin I've made but have not forgiven someone I need to forgive.,.does he then not forgive me?
Anyone answering please provide scripture
