    about forgiveness….. i think not as simple as we think…. we can forget a little and small one… but its hard for the big fault toward us… like child abuse, etc. more over if the doer isnt regret………. :-)

    Kebetulan gw tulis ini waktu gw berusaha memaafkan sih, dan kebetulan yang perlu dimaafkan memang hal kecil dan bukan besar.

    untuk kesalahan yang berat, memaafkan itu memang susah, tapi bukan tidak mungkin. Sulit tapi harus… Memaafkan itu memang terasa sangat menderita, tapi sebenarnya “memaafkan” adalah obat yang sesungguhnya, dan bukan “dendam”. Dalam hal ini gw rasa kita benar-benar butuh kekuatan dari Tuhan.

    kemudian, untuk masalah jika pelaku tidak menyesal… itu hanya salah satu faktor sih, dan tidak bisa dijadikan alasan kenapa kita tidak bisa memaafkan…

    but it’s just my humble opinion. gw sendiri setuju sama lu kalau memaafkan tidak pernah sesimple itu. :)

    yg ini ada benarnya:

    Mengapa Mengampuni itu penting :

    Orang yang tidak mau mengampuni, akan menanggung akibat yang serius secara fisik, mental, emosi dan rohani.

    Bila menolak mengampuni :

    a) Kita tidak di ampuni ( Matius 6 : 14-15 )

    b) Kita akan di siksa ( Matius 18 : 32 35 )

    c) Kita tercemar ( Ibrani 12 : 14 – 15 ), di sakiti –> Allah memberi kita anugerah untuk mengampuni orang itu –> hidup damai dengan semua orang & kejar kekudusan sebab tanpa kekudusan tidak seorang pun melihat Tuhan. Tidak mengampuni menimbulkan akar kepahitan, kerusuhan dan mencemarkan banyak orang

    d) Kita merusak Kesehatan ( 1 kor 11 : 30 )

    Perintah untuk mengampuni ( bukan undangan , tapi perintah Tuhan, jadi yang nama nya perintah –> harus di lakukan ! bila tidak ada hukumannya yang akan kita tuai dari ketidaktaatan kita.

    Perintah mengampuni :
    – Efesus 4 : 32
    – Kolose 3 : 13
    – Lukas 6 : 37
    – Lukas 17 : 3

    God bless you all
