    There is forgiveness, but we must receive it. It is like Jesus and the twelve disciples. Jesus actually told the disciple who betrayed him thatit were good for him if that man had not been born. yes, love is available, but we must receive it. Yes only God can forgive. There was one time that my friend hated my post on facebook because it did not align with his values. He said some confusing and mean things and maybe I was confusing and mean to him because of my post. But I forgave him. I was not looking to please others or to depend on others for forgiveness.
