Kindred,


I wish you would stop using forgiveness as a means to manipulate, whitewash and bypass redemption and salvation.  


There is no forgiveness received without first confession of sin, without repentance and without atonement.

Without the desire to repent and atone then unrepentant and unclean, shall the perpetrator sinner remain.
