Corzine-McCloskey: What forgiveness is, and what it isn't
I believe forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the Christian faith. We know we are supposed to do it. Indeed, it is a mandate (Matthew 6:15). But it's a command often ignored. Many have told me they believe they have to forget to forgive. I've had others tell me they think forgiveness means they have to restore the relationship with someone who is toxic or dangerous. With those standards, I can see why people have quit trying to forgive.
