Larry F. (penteman2) reviewed Forgiving Others: Joining Wisdom and Love (VantagePoint Books) on
Sally, a Christian, laments having an abortion years ago. "I know the Lord has forgiven me, but I just can't forgive myself." What would you say to her? Maybe you yourself have struggled with "self-forgiveness", and wonder how to deal with feelings of guilt. Why is self-forgiveness such an attractive notion? What, if anything, does the Bible say about it? Robert Jones identifies five possible assumptions behind the longing for self-forgiveness. In the process, he pinpoints a deeper problem--and a deeper solution to ongoing guilt. By dispelling a number of misconceptions, Jones clears the path to a joyful realization of complete forgiveness in Christ.
