How does the textbook interpret Matthew 18:21-35 and the Christian’s ability to forgive others?
There is a strong claim that those who do not forgive will not be forgiven; however, in this parable, Jesus illustrated the cost of forgiveness in the context of being released from financial debt. In the case of this parable, it literally cost the person offering forgiveness monetarily. It costs something because one has to commit to the notion that a person who is dragging him or her down, as it were, is more important than any kind of self-preservation.

Describe the Christian view of salvation and how it differs from the views of other religions.
