Not being a "Christian" or a member of any religion I find forgiveness to be a totally misrepresented thing. Holding people responsible for their actions and making them pay for them makes more sense than turning the other cheek. We aren't talking about someone who shoplifted, or who made a simple mistake. We're talking about evil, and one person's evil deed. Certainly let the law handle it, however "forgiving" them is not part of the deal.

Interesting to me how the ability to forgive makes someone a good person, their willingness to pawn it off on the unknown entity and their ability to accept what ought to be unacceptable seems to say something different to me.

If it works for that friend of yours, so be it. I hope his daughter understands the concept as well. I hope they find the peace and healing they're going to need.
I don't think that Maladi posted this thread to have his friend criticized. Why don't you start your own post and debate the ideas of forgiveness.

I don't think that Maladi friend was suggesting a pardon for the little bastard and he certainly is and evil seed and probably has irrevically changed that little girls life, however, his choice to forgive is his and what is scripturally commanded if he is a believer.

Speaking from experience, it is much easier to maintain a grudge or level of hate/resentment/anger toward another person than to forgive them and pray for their salvation.
