Our Father

Next time you pray the Our Father think about this:

The line that we say "forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us" is not only about forgiveness. It is a request for our own condemnation. In it, the person who prays this is asking for their own damnation if they willingly do not forgive as God forgives. Is there any other religion that has such a bold prayer?
