There are many links scattered throughout our site on the subject of forgiveness. We are cautioned throughout the Scriptures how unforgiveness can damage the heart, soul and body.
In Dr. Don Colbert's book Deadly Emotions, he says, "Those who choose to forgive are those who decide to give up resentment and the desire to punish. They have a willingness to relinquish all claims to exact a penalty for an offense. They actually cancel the debt they believe another person owes them."
Many prisoners have burnt all their bridges to their families. Their families have become victims, who hold unforgiveness in their hearts. Our prayer is that you will read the links offered on this site, come to repentance and be cleansed by the blood of Christ.
The writer of Hebrews says, "Try to live in peace with everyone, and seek to live a clean and holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that none of you will miss out on the special favor of God. Watch out that no bitter root of unbelief rises up among you, for whenever it springs up, many are corrupted by its poison" (Heb. 12:14,15 NLT).
