Questions about forgiveness

When it comes to forgiveness, a lot of people want answers to these questions:

  1. Is forgiveness a mental effort to erase or ignore the actions of the one who wronged us?
  2. Does forgiveness require us to become morally neutral about right and wrong?
  3. Is forgiveness an imaginary zone of forgetfulness?

Jesus went to the heart of forgiveness by making it part of worship. He said, “When you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your father in heaven may forgive you your sins” (Mark 11:25).

I explain how this works here.
