Gerry Breshears :: How can I forgive someone who isn’t around anymore?

  • Dr. Gerry Breshears, Author and Professor of Theology at Western Seminary, has worked with a number of abuse victims whose attackers are not available. When we are looking to forgive abusers who are not around, the first thing is to figure out what we’re going to do with that pain. “Because of the example of Jesus Christ, we give up the right to hurt that person back.” It’s not ignoring the pain, it’s just a different type of processing it without turning to anger.
