What must we do to forgive someone?
What is the process, the real need? What drives the need to forgive or be forgiven? Does the process vary in anyway depending on circumstances, social standings or religions? What are the effects?
i FEEL TO FORGIVE ANYONE ONE SHOULD keep himself in that position
secondly one must think of all faults in himself and then feel that no one is perfect
if that person is really feeling sorry then he must be forgiven as we all feel to be forgived at time we are wrong
We're supposed to love based on the Bible yet when it comes to being hurt that's difficult. My best friend talked to a priest and his suggestion was, Love the man, hate the sin.
forgiving isn't for the other person, it's for you. The only thing you do by not forgiving is drag it round with you allowing it to eat you up while that person is happily continuing with life.
You must realize one does not get to choose his/her life and everyone deals with things differently we all make mistakes and we want god to forgive us but we are not ready to forgive others. Have love in your heart and forgiveness comes easier then you would even wish. I have been hurt by many but my heart just will not allow to stay mad at anyone and believe me if you only knew what i been threw. As you grow and mature as a human you become more aware and understand more and so by this you open your mind to forgiveness.
good question...the real need?...if it is someone i truly love, my need is to release myself from the negativity that 'not forgiving' is surrounded by; driven by my need to bring things back to where they were before...but i'm not sure it's really possible to go back to before the 'crack in the road' started ...i do believe it's possible to step over that 'crack in the road' and start anew...it'll be different however...the effect from forgiveness, would be that the relationship would be stronger..than before...changed, for the better...it's hard work...you have to believe...both of you

Have you ever had to forgive someone?It's not always easy to get to the place where you are willing or able to forgive someone. If you have ever forgiven someone, how did you go about it? Does it still hurt to remember what the person did to you?

We know that we will be better off if we forgive all of those things and and all of those people that have caused us pain....In this thread, ask for or give forgiveness. You don't have to give specific in details if you don't want to.I ask that Christians who have hurt people be forgiven.
