In Topic: Father, Forgive Them

Yes, but then all of their sins would have been forgiven at that moment.

 

The point you raise would lead us to ask if Jesus was only praying for those few who may have been converted or for all those who put Him to death.

 

If we broaden this consideration to include Stephen, we only know of Saul (who became Paul) being converted from among his killers; so was Stephens prayer only applicable to Saul/Paul or was he praying for all those putting him to death?

None of us really know who of the people that Jesus or Stephen prayed for in the instances discussed except for Saul became saved or not, so why do so many assume they did not?  Surely nobody assumes that the only people that were saved are mentioned in the scripture and those not saved are not.

I believe that the work of the Holy Spirit is what convicts one of sin and thus brings one to repentance and then forgiveness and salvation and eternal life.  Am I wrong?  Could be because I ain't no genius.  If this my surmising is correct then I see no reason why Jesus's request of His Father could not have been answered by the work of the Holy Spirit bringing those (the subjects of this discussion) to conviction and repentance.  Just guessing because the scriptures don't say so, so don't hang your hat on it.  I don't see where the Holy Spirit and his work has been considered in this discussion.

How can I think that God would put limits on His forgiveness for others when I see that He put no limits on His forgiveness for me?

Aren't some questions asked with the intent of getting a wrong response from the person being questioned?

Is life not full of ambiguous questions?
