I am a Christian but I think this subject may be of concern to all people. Today I was made to feel guilty about forgiving others, as we say in the Lord's Prayer "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." I was reading a Christian message that quoted St Matthew saying if we do not forgive others then God does not forgive us.
I have been encouraged by two Major Authorities, one being the Police, to act on a Historic case against me. I reported what he did to his employers because of something recently that came to my attention. They sent my report to the Police, with my permission. I can say no more on it. I know the Police want to pursue it. But does this mean I should not be pursuing this earthly path of the courts in bringing a person to justice or should I leave it to God? Please do not ask about the case as it is now sub judice. I want to understand forgiveness and would really like your wisdom here. Thank you.
