    Theses words on forgiveness are fine and noble words, but, I do not think one should not forgive too  easily! There has to be an inner process on the matter, and the magnitude of the act/deed/words..whatever, and the identity of the one or persons that need to be forgiven. I know a Presbyterian Church and its librarian, in collusion with a scond-hand christian bookshop charged a an old man of sixty-eight who had borrowed some books from the church library,one of which  found its way into a box he proferred for sale to the christian bookshop. Yes! this atrocious church and the two devil's advocates-the librarian/bookmanbrought charges against this man for 'stealing a book'! The family in question needed help and prayer, I know the man personally, and today, his abhorrence of Presbyterianism, and the librarian  and the bookman.never could he forgive their act!
