How many times did Jesus say to forgive? 70 X 7. That doesn’t mean we count to 449 and start to hold a grudge at 450. We must always forgive each other. Will God do less? Will he look at the brother or sister in hell calling out to him and turn a deaf ear? Will he be guilty of the same unforgiveness he condemns in his creatures who bear his image? No. God will not be outdone in forgiveness by his creatures. He will not be outdone in generosity and compassion by the mother who sees her son in hell and pleads that the Lord listen to his cries. Will he reply that her son had 449 chances to repent on earth and at 450 he is empty of mercy? No. God will always forgive.
