    If we are incapable of forgiveness towards one another, we have no right to judge others or be good stewards of the creation around us. Look at how our unwillingness to forgive each other is tearing our country apart. Think about that before you levy judgement against someone else for what you deem to be an unforgivable act.

    That is all.

    It reminds me of a episode of Stairway to Heaven when the Angel got punch on one side of the cheek and then another side and he punched the guy back and said " I turn the other cheek "...

    You can only forgive so much but when individuals keep on committing the same sin you have to draw a line and banish them from your life...

    The Bible doesn't say to forget ... now, I can forgive someone for wearing a shirt with both cotton and flax woven together ... but I'm still going to scream at them for their ungodly sinful and worldly ways ... ras clot ...

    If we don't forget, are we truly forgiving?

    Forgiving and forgetting for me works hand in hand. One cannot be accomplished without doing the other.

    So if I come by everyday at 10am so my sheepdog can dump on your lawn ... you will forget and NOT be out there tomorrow? ... somehow I doubt that ...

    We shouldn't forget if we want to help our brother to not sin ... I remember my neighbor likes to pour his used motor oil down the storm drain ... I see him draining the oil pan, I'm going to remember his sin and remind him to take the used oil to the recycling station ... forgiving without forgetting ...

    Here's the thing. The person has only committed this sin once. Now, judge this against the backdrop of others having done the same thing as he.

    Everyone sees this as an unforgivable action.

    I clean it up and move on with my day. Even if you won't.

    Getting upset over dog shit?

    Far more important things to get upset about in this life.

    If we are discussing Donald John Trump then no he has sin more than once and because another sin and society was blinded when that individual committed their sin does not mean I should also be blind...

    It is true we all sin but we must learn and grow from it and never do it again but alas we never learn...

    I was being politically correct by using a very minor crime ... so, let's talk about the guy down the block who dorks 8-year-old girls ... you'd forget that when you see him leading an 8-year-old girl into his house? ... shame on you ...
