DOCTRINE #47: FORGIVENESS
The statement of your will that you won't equal out your own justice. Forgiveness allows God to equal out justice. Forgiveness benefits the forgiver. Forgiveness does not mean the forgiver has to forget and/or feel good about the forgiven person.

During April and May, I am posting sixty Doctrines. These sixty Doctrines ought to be used as a diagnostic tool: you ought to begin with Doctrine #1 and see how far you get before you disagree.
If you believe the Doctrine that is presented above, then continue to the next Doctrine.
If you don't believe the Doctrine that is presented above, look at some of the corresponding Scriptures through links to Jonathan's blog and/or look at the philosophical explanation through the links to posts on this blog.
If you still don't believe the Doctrine in question, take some time to state your will what your doctrine is for this topic. Identify the Scripture to support it...and then continue to the next Doctrine.
Forgiveness is an important and complex Doctrine. The short presentation of this Doctrine was a post titled, "Forgiveness".
The more complex presentation occurred in two posts:
-Luke 17:3 (Part II)
This post showed the link between Forgiveness and Mercy, Reward, Morality, and Justice.
Finally, we looked at how Luke 17:3 is linked to another passage in a post titled, "Matthew 18:15-16 & Luke 17:3".
