Bishop Noble Elias Bates, a philanthropist active in church and prison ministry for the past thirty years and the current pastor of Power of Prayer ministry, has completed his new book “True Forgiveness Is the Answer: An Intimate Exploration for Christians”: a spiritual guide to forgiveness and the rejection of negativity and resentment.

The author shares, “‘True Forgiveness’ is one of the greatest gifts known to man. It is priceless as in placing an actual value on it; it’s too far-reaching. You cannot purchase true forgiveness. Someone can give you a million dollars for a wrong that was committed against you and it still will not heal the heart. You may smile at the things you may be able to do with it, but at the end of the day, you will possess the same feelings, if not worse for that person trying to circumvent the process you truly need to journey with that person.

This book explains the purpose and process and gives the reader the tools and the foundation from which to launch and work. We must remember that God is still God and cannot be excluded from your decisions. He knows your every thought and that is scary. You must repent and pray daily if you are in a perpetual state of unforgiveness. It should not take a lifetime to forgive someone for whatever the offense.

Stop living with hate and unforgiveness in your heart. It is a choice. What does your common sense tell you? It will only hurt you. Further, if this person is really as bad as you think, your hating him will not affect him one bit. However, oftentimes, the person who you hate and refuse to forgive also hates what happened and cannot forgive themselves. That is grace and we all need it. If you want to be blessed exponentially and be uniquely set apart. Truly forgive someone and allow them to start to forgive themselves.

My God! What a wonderful gift from God you will be. That is a gift that keeps on giving. True forgiveness is the answer.”
