Before the cross, the bible says "forgive so that you will be forgiven"...after the cross it's "forgive AS your Heavenly Father has forgiven you" We are now free to forgive, not as a threat, it's all about Love!

Forgiveness is a choice. We may not be able to choose to wipe away the hurt that someone has caused but we can choose to cast off the bitterness, anger, and feelings of the need for revenge and justice. How? Trust in God, believe His word, and turn judgment over to Him. Once we let God take over, we can start to let the negative feelings go. –Elmer Laydon

I've had this evidenced to me by others more than once. While other people put on Christian airs, they have intentionally berated me, decided not to forgive me, etc. I cannot worry about that or follow that path. I have to keep striving to do what is right in the eyes of #God, not what is popular and favorable in the opinions of mankind.
