Would I ever be forgiven for having an affair with a married man?

She needs time. If she wants to reach out to you she will - in this case, you have wronged her, so it's best to give her the space. On the broader issue, God forgives us when we repent.

Yeah this is a pretty bad thing but at least you are admitting to it. Repent. And you shall be forgiven but since you know it’s wrong, you shouldn’t do anything like this again.

Don't expect her to be open to friendship. Forgiveness is important for her freedom, but it will always be painful to be with you. Consider moving away from them.

Is reaching out to make her feel better or you feel better?

God will forgive you if you're sincere in your repentance. Your friend might forgive you, but keep in mind that forgiving you doesn't mean she also has to give you another chance to hurt her.

I'm glad someone said this. As followers of Christ, we have to forgive others from the heart for what they do. This is indisputable Scripturally. Forgiveness is releasing them from the debt they owe you. But this does not mean that we MUST deem them trustworthy. That isn't wisdom, but foolishness. That has to be demonstrated and re-earned.

The only unforgivable sin is blasphemy against the holy spirit which is denieing the forgiveness of sins if you are truly sorry for your sins you will be forgiven

It certainly sounds like you’re repented of that, and so Jesus forgives you. But your friend may not, and you’ll have to be at peace with that. You’ve already come clean and told her that you’re sorry, and that’s a really good thing to do. You’ve done your part, and I wouldn’t suggest going out if your way to try to talk with her more. As others said here already, she probably needs time. But I’d also suggest to pray about it and ask the Holy Spirit to give you guidance. If you do speak to her, ask for Him to give you the words she needs to hear from you. And if you’re not sure that you have the Holy Spirit to guide you like that, keep asking until you know He is with you!

By God, of course. By her, possibly, possibly not.

It's forgiveable. You reap what you sow. The consequences are immense. But I believe you can find forgiveness and mercy. God is holy.

God forgives all who've accepted Jesus. While fellow believers are called to forgiveness, it may take time. And even then, in that case, forgiveness doesn't mean continuing relationships. I'm sorry for what happened on all accounts.

Yeah can't speak for if this is a sin, but the people advising you to not reach out to her are telling you the right thing. Don't ever try to contact her first...you're only doing it because you feel guilty. Which is shitty within itself but no need to touch on that any further. Also on another note...you were never really her friend.


Fontenele71

Same goes for this post here


Fronteria54

Sorry but what?


Fontenele71

This whole post was made out of guilt too. I doubt she cares about what God thinks. She just wants reassurance.


Fronteria54

I agree. I was just curious what correlation that had to do with me? Or were you just trying to point that fact out?


Fontenele71

Just pointing


RazorINC

Are you asking if you're unforgivable to your friend or to God?


cns000

you need to give your friend some time to cool down

Repent of your sins and God will forgive you. He is merciful. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

There are three types of sin: Sin through Weakness, Sin through Accident, and Sin through Choice. Which one is it? were you weak? was it an accident? or did you deliberately choose to do it, knowing the consequences?
