Forgiveness.... Explain that. What is it to you, what does it mean when "you" say, "I forgive you"? How does it change your life? Please leave God and Jesus out of this..I'm interested in what it means deep inside the human psyche. If you can't leave God and Jesus out, you don't understand what I'm asking. Here's an example of why I'm puzzled.... I've heard people say they forgive the killer of a family member. What does this mean? It doesn't bring back the family member nor take away the pain. What are they saying, "ahhh forget it, it's okay"?
