Just as the debt-forgiving creditor in our Lord's parable had to bear the burden of the forgiven debts

Our Lord says in the parable: "He freely forgave them both". Where does He say in the parable that the creditor "had to bear the burden of the forgiven debts"?
This, again, is human justice being projected on to Divine Justice.
For an Orthodox perspective on this, I suggest the article "On Divine Justice" by Elder Paisos.

I think the problem here is that one side sees the "debt theology" as the only way to reconcile certain scriptures. But they forget that the blood and the sacrifice are all covered in the traditional Orthodox view.

Fashions and opinions among men may change, but the Orthodox tradition remains ever the same, no matter how few may follow it.
