Forgiveness is part of Christian freedom. Because God likes forgiveness as mentioned in the Bible. One of Christian’s good characteristic is forgiveness, in (Col 3:13) “forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.” Even Christians are strongly encouraged to forgive your enemy. It is one of the greatest ethics in human being. Since Christians are the believer of Bible we need to do it as part of our faith.
The Bible suggests that to forgive anybody even who are against you, “if you do not forgive others, your father will not forgive you failings either” Matt 6:15. Even, we are asked to forgive whom was owe to you, “the debt-cancellation parable in Matt 18:35.”54
Divine forgiveness is simply free grace, Eph 1:7.55 In another word, it is impossible for human to get freedom, but by God’s ultimate forgiveness to human’s shortcomings. “Forgiveness is a divine prerogative; only God can finally forgive,” Mat 9:2-6; Mk. 2:5-10; Lk 5:20; Luke 7:49; John 20:23.56
The Christian forgiveness is unlike non-Christian, Henry Stob said, “the willingness to forgive does not involve treating the original offense and the resulting injury as though they never happened or were unimportant.”57 “Because we take a “cross” upon us. However, we must know the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven” Mt 12:31, 32; Mk 2:28,29; Lk 12:10.
