C.S. Lewis wrote: “Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive…” (Mere Christianity p. 104). When we add to that reminder the idea that we must forgive and forget if we are to be Christlike, then forgiveness seems almost impossible. It is important to understand what forgiveness is, what it is not, and how to apply it. Then we can correct the false notion that we are to forgive and forget.
