I have a question that is related to salvation.
In the Gospel of Matthew, Our Lord says :
“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!
Suppose I am an adulterer and have caused some people to stumble and they sin because my bad morals corrupted their good nature. But later on ,I repent and they do not. Moreover,I would always see the terrible consequences of my bad influence taking its toll on them. Would my repentance be acceptable before the Lord and be forgiven or do I bear the burden of their sin and lose my salvation??
What exactly is the Lord saying in the verse?
