GUEST,Pete from seven stars BS: Can People Forgive? (95* d) RE: BS: Can People Forgive? 12 Jan 14

I tend to have a measure of agreement with you in some respects. I don't think that it is our business to forgive on behalf of someone else wronged, but as a Christian I am called to forgive those that ...trespass against per the Lord's Prayer .there is also the example of Jesus ....forgive them father, they know not what they do. Also when Stephen was stoned....lay not this sin to their charge....I find it helpful to remember that forgiving is an act of the will, and that feelings may not follow for a while.i also do not think that just because we may forgive that the due process of law should not be pursued in cases of criminal activity, especially in some cases, for example, paedophiles who may need help as well as punishment.
