Abuse survivors always wonder whether they need to forgive their abuser. Do they have to forgive? When should they forgive? Does forgiveness require anything from the abuser? Churches often force abusers into forgiving their abuser and some even make it a condition of fellowship. But is this biblical? And what do those same churches require of the abuser? In our experience, far more is expected (demanded) of the survivor than of the abuser. Listen in and hear what God has to say about forgiveness.
