Absolutely. My point was that forgiving may be done as a singular act, and is valid whether it is embraced by the other or not.
There are "conditions"there still whether percieved or not. Obviously, "unconditional" is another whole set of circumstances.
I wonder can a person or group be unconditionally forgiven after the 7th time the same offense is committed or the 8th?
Unconditionally moves us away from judgement and justification of actions.
Another area we are increasingly afraid to act on, judgement and justice, because we are led to believe there should be none?
I would love to walk around saying, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do"
As a matter of fact , He said it for us. All we can do is try to be more like him.
