Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. Luke 23:34.

"Christ is our example. He placed Himself at the head of the human family to accomplish a work the importance of which men do not comprehend because they do not realize the privileges and possibilities before them as members of the human family of God. . . . His mercy was not weakness, but a terrible power to punish sin. . . . yet a power to draw to it the love of humanity. Through Christ Justice is enabled to forgive without sacrificing one jot of its exalted holiness. {SD 153.2}
Christ taught us to pray, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors," and added, "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive your trespasses." . . . {SD 153.3}
Will you not, if any one has done you a wrong, and is too proud and stubborn to say to you, "I repent," go to the offender and say, "I love you for Christ's sake, and I forgive you the injury you have done me"? Jesus will witness and approve of this deed of love; and as you do to others, it shall be done again to you. {SD 153.4}
We are to have a spirit of pity, of compassion toward those who have trespassed against us, whether or not they confess their faults. It they fail to repent and make confession, their sins will stand registered in the books above to confront them in the day of judgment; but if they say, "I repent," then . . . we are freely to forgive from the heart their trespasses against us. {SD 153.5}
True happiness does not consist in the possession of wealth or position, but in the possession of a pure, clean heart, cleansed by obedience to the truth. . . . To every one is given the opportunity to carry out the principles of heaven. The forgiving of injuries, not the avenging of them, is an exhibition of that wisdom which is true goodness. Christlike love for the men through whom the Lord has wrought is a manifestation of real transformation of character. {SD 153.6}

Dear brothers and sisters;
All of us in the SDR church need to forgive as Christ forgives if we are ever to gain that perfection we strive unto. I for one forgive all those that have come against me and my ministry over the years. Even if those that hear me declare I forgive them don't believe me, I will still forgive them because the love of Christ compels my heart to do so. For I know I too can sin just as easy as anyone else wherein I too can lose my way and offend my precious brothers and sisters.

Also keep in mind, 100% of the time, those that sin against you don't do so because they hate you. They do so because Satan hates you and will use anyone he can to exhibit his hate. So, it's perfectly ok to hate Satan, but please do not blame your fellow man when he or she slips off the path just as easily as we all do from time to time. Love heals all wounds!

I love you all and if I have offended ANY of you, please forgive me.
