>>>>If you can't forget, then you really haven't forgiven.

In a perfect world that would be nice. We don't live in a perfect world. To forgive bad behavior is a great human quality. To forget that bad behavior, is pure stupidity.

As a people, the Jews have been forgiving their enemies for thousands of years. They've been smart not to forget the transgressions made against them.

As a Christian I have to look at forgiveness from God's point of view. Once you have Him to forgive you that sin is no longer remember by Him.

Keep in mind that I am talking about someone that is truly sorry.
