Vermon Pierre, Mike Bullmore, and Ryan Kelly Tackle a Tough Question
All Christians at some point will face the difficult task of forgiving someone who’s sinned against them. The apostle Paul calls us to do so in a manner that imitates the Father: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another just as in Christ God forgave you” (Eph. 4:32). But how do we practice this forgiveness if the offender doesn’t repent? Are we obligated to forgive, even if the person doesn’t recognize how he or she wronged us?
