What are your views on these two verses, as I believed God forgave all sins

O OPPRESSORS ON EARTH! Withdraw your hands from tyranny, for I have pledged Myself not to forgive any man’s injustice. This is My covenant which I have irrevocably decreed in the preserved tablet and sealed with My seal.


It is for this reason that, in this New Cycle, education and training are recorded in the Book of God as obligatory and not voluntary. That is, it is enjoined upon the father and mother, as a duty, to strive with all effort to train the daughter and the son, to nurse them from the breast of knowledge and to rear them in 579 the bosom of sciences and arts. Should they neglect this matter, they shall, be held responsible and worthy of reproach in the presence of the stern Lord.
This is a sin unpardonable, for they have made that poor babe a wanderer in the Sahara of ignorance, unfortunate and tormented; to remain during a lifetime a captive of ignorance and pride, negligent and without discernment. Verily, if that babe depart from this world at the age of infancy, it is sweeter and better. In this sense, death is better than life; deprivation than salvation; non-existence lovelier than existence; the grave better than the spacious, regal home; for in the sight of mankind that child is abased and degraded and in the sight of God weak and defective. In gatherings it is ashamed and humiliated and in the arena of examination subdued and defeated by young and old. What a mistake is this! What an everlasting humiliation!

Personally I use these as warnings as motivation to change oneself and leave all judgement to God.

I see all we do has ripple effects throughout time, it is a great punishment to know what we have done in our time, will have an effect on others in the future. I think this is one of the thoughts we can get from the Kitab-i-iqan about 'return'.

There are actions we can partake of in this life to ask of God for the bounty of change, to polish our mirror and always ask for forgiveness.

I see it more as saying no sin is overlooked. All will be judged for exactly what they do, with no sin forgiven and left out of Judgement.

In the longer term sense of eventual return to God, all will make it. The sins aren't forgiven so much as overcome/worked through in my opinion. Whether we accomplish that in this world or another is tbd.
