We humans often judge wrongly and have wrong ideas about others. The Word of God teaches us that we must replace condemning others and seeking revenge with forgiveness and love. Violence cannot be solved by violence, but only by forgiving and loving others can we destroy the root of violence. The Word of God teaches that if we do not forgive those who sin against us, our heavenly Father also will not forgive our sins! One of the basic principles in the Christian faith is that of forgiving others. The power of forgiveness and love can only be achieved by following Jesus Christ.
