Does forgiveness mean allowing someone to hurt or harm you repeatedly?


The bible says turn the other cheek. It also says we have to forgive in order for our Father in Heaven to forgive us. How do you end a cycle of mistreatment without it being considered unforgiveness?

    I agree with you Sheila. Forgiveness does not mean one has to stay in an abusive situation.
