I have thought about this for a long time and would like some thoughtful responses…

Can everything be forgiven? Even the worst of the worst (murder, rape, terrorism, etc.). Is there a limit to forgiveness? I do know onw thing- forgiveness makes the victim and prepetrator feel a lot better emotionally. When I apologized for something terrible I did, and I was forgiven, it actually physically felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I breathed easier. I felt better about myself.
Some questions to ponder…
-Can everything be forgiven?
-Do prepetrators ever deserve it?
-Why are people so afraid to ask for it and or give it?
-If we gave it out more often, would people be happier?
-Are we allowed to forgive on behalf of others?
-What if forgiveness led us to even love those who we thought were monsters?
-Is a reason we hate to forgive because we would be forced to see the perpretators as human, just like us? And we couldn’t imagine ourselves capable of doing what they did?

To be honest, I think guilt is the worst punishment a person can have. Jail time ends, humiliation fades away with time, criminal records get expunged. But guilt is like your mind is in a permanent jail until you can find a way to release it or be forgiven.

  • The problem with that theory assumes that these people feel guilt, but some of them don’t.

    • How can you tell which ones do or don’t? I know that’s probably so difficult as well. But isn’t guilt felt by everybody, just as happiness, joy, sadness, embarssment? Life is complicated!

  • Some things can be forgiven by most people. Others by some people. It varies. Actions do provoke reactions.

  • You aren’t owed forgiveness for anything. If caught you may serve your time. That doesn’t mean you’ve earned forgiveness from those you’ve hurt. Their forgiveness doesn’t matter. Maybe you can learn to forgive yourself if you ever felt guilty.
