During my evangelism, I came across an unbeliever who quoted these verses . According to him he heard these verses from Avraham Ben Moshe that God doesn't forgive our sins. If you sin against anyone go to the person for forgiveness not God.
Meanwhile we know when you repent and ask for forgiveness God will forgive you and cleanse you from all your iniquities.
Here are the verses he quoted.
2 Chronicles 14:12-13
and Asa and his troops pursued them as far as Gerar. So many of the Ethiopians were killed that the army was unable to rally and fight. They were overpowered by the Lord and his army, and the army took large amounts of loot.
Suddenly the power of the Lord made him strong, and he went down to Ashkelon, where he killed thirty men, stripped them, and gave their fine clothes to the men who had solved the riddle. After that, he went back home, furious about what had happened,
The city and everything in it must be totally destroyed as an offering to the Lord. Only the prostitute Rahab and her household will be spared, because she hid our spies.
But you are not to take anything that is to be destroyed; if you do, you will bring trouble and destruction on the Israelite camp.
With their swords they killed everyone in the city, men and women, young and old. They also killed the cattle, sheep, and donkeys.
Then the Israelites made a vow to the Lord: “If you will let us conquer these people, we will unconditionally dedicate them and their cities to you and will destroy them.”
The Lord heard them and helped them to conquer the Canaanites. So the Israelites completely destroyed them and their cities, and named the place Hormah.
“But when you capture cities in the land that the Lord your God is giving you, kill everyone.
Completely destroy all the people: the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, as the Lord ordered you to do.
Every living being on the earth died — every bird, every animal, and every person.
Everything on earth that breathed died.
The Lord destroyed all living beings on the earth — human beings, animals, and birds. The only ones left were Noah and those who were with him in the boat.
1 Samuel 15:1-3
Samuel said to Saul, “I am the one whom the Lord sent to anoint you king of his people Israel. Now listen to what the Lord Almighty says.
He is going to punish the people of Amalek because their ancestors opposed the Israelites when they were coming from Egypt.
Go and attack the Amalekites and completely destroy everything they have. Don't leave a thing; kill all the men, women, children, and babies; the cattle, sheep, camels, and donkeys.”.
